Meet the Principal
Thank you to the many of you who attended my recent Principal information sessions. It was a wonderful opportunity to share my vision and meet the many families who attended.
What is the Victorian Curriculum?
The Victorian Curriculum F-10 is the new curriculum for Victorian schools. It incorporates the Australian Curriculum currently implemented at MCS and reflects Victorian standards and priorities. Together with the Victorian Early Learning and Development Framework, it specifies the skills children and young people need for success in work and life: literacy, numeracy, scientific knowledge and skills, resilience, respectful relationships, the use of digital technologies and the capacity for critical and creative thinking and expression.
Camp Years 3 and 4
After days of heavy and persistent rainfall, we were blessed with blue skies as our year 3 and 4 students, staff and a number of enthusiastic parents left for camp this week. The year 3 students had a night in Kyneton while the year 4 students spent 2 nights on the Mornington Peninsula.
The Victorian Government is committed to the safety and wellbeing of all children and young people. As part of the Victorian Government’s commitment to implementing the recommendations of the Betrayal of Trust report, there is a new regulatory landscape surrounding child safety, underpinned by new Child Safe Standards. Ministerial Order No. 870 sets out specific actions that schools need to take to meet these standards.
