Reminder: Curriculum Day tomorrow Wednesday November 15. Students do not attend school tomorrow.

This curriculum day is being utilised by staff in attending Network School observations. Staff will be completing lesson observations at Cranbourne East Secondary College and Narre Warren South P-12 College. These formal observations are part of our AIP goals for this year. Teachers have been working in triads this year completing formal lesson observations at our school and providing feedback, we now will be widening our lens to look at examples of professional practice at other Network schools. We look forward to reflective questions, wonderings and ideas for future improvement that will be cultivated through this experience.

In Case You Missed It: New Basketball Courts

We are very excited at seeing our new blue courts complete. Thank you to all students, staff and community members for patiently waiting for the courts to be completed. It is wonderful to see the bright blue, new, safer surface being used by the students of Hillsmeade, as well as the wider community. A big thank you to Angela Nixon our Facilities Manager for coordinating this work for our school.
