“The fewer the words, the better the prayer. Pray, and let God worry.” - Martin Luther 

It is hard to believe that we are coming to the end of Week 6, Term 2 already. As always so much is happening around the College in and out of the classroom with Years 5 and 6 Winter Sports starting last week, Year 10 Camp a few weeks ago to Phillip Island and NAPLAN being thrown in there for good measure. I always enjoy my opportunities to visit our students in their classrooms and being able to see what they are up to in their learning. It is a highlight of my day.


NAPLAN 2019

At the end of last week, we finalised our 2019 NAPLAN requirements for our Years 3, 5, 7 & 9 students with over 900 assessments being completed. I had the opportunity to observe a number of this year’s NAPLAN assessments and I was very proud in how our students approached this learning opportunity.  A special thank you to our Director of Teaching & Learning, Ms Kathryn McAuliffe, for her leadership and support and also our Teaching Staff and Learning Enhancement Assistants for their support of our students. We look forward to celebrating the achievements of our students later in the year.

Staffing Updates

Earlier in the week, we have communicated a number of Staffing Updates as we work towards the end of Term 2 2019. As a College, we are focused on providing quality teaching and learning for all of our students and endeavour to maintain consistency throughout the year with staffing appointments. From time to time, there are unforeseen challenges and absences that we need to manage. I would like to thank our College community for their support and understanding in these situations.

As always, I value the support of our College community and please feel free to contact me via email on principal@vlc.vic.edu.au 
with feedback, queries or success you would like to share.

Yours in Christ,

Mr John Thompson 
Principal
