Principal’s Report Principals’ Conference
I have spent the past two days in Melbourne attending the South West Victoria Region Princi-pals’ Conference. The focus of the conference was on the initiatives and actions involved in improving education across the state. We had a range of guest speakers who focused on im-provements and initiatives being rolled out by the Department of Education and Training. We participated in a range of workshops as well as a series of plenary sessions and forums. One of the most intriguing presentations was by the Reverend Peter Costello. Peter spoke about the big issues confronting the world today and then related those issues to school systems and to Victoria. He is an extremely optimistic man who, despite seeing the ravages of war and deprivation across many countries, he remains positive and supportive. He was skilful in relating his experiences to our task of educating students and he pressed for educating the whole child – social, emotional, physical and cognitive. Perhaps the best ‘take-away’ for me from the conference is that, despite distance, rurality, size and a mouse plague, we are providing the right teaching and learning for our students. Education needs to be local and global – Hopetoun P-12 College is providing both for our stu-dents. We will continue to press the improvements currently underway as well as continue to provide the best education possible for our students.
There is still time to sign up for the MATES mentoring program. Contact Nicki at school on 5083 3203 to sign up for the program or to enquire about how the program supports students as well as provides a fulfilling experience for mentors.
School Council is keen to continue improving our school grounds. There have been signifi-
cant changes already this year such as the demolition of the old Tech building, the relocation
of the shade shelters, the tidying of our school grounds and general maintenance.
This Sunday we have a monster working bee planned. We need to remove the old sleepers from around the old library in readiness for asphalting the area under and near the shade shelter, tidy the front of the school along Dodgshun Street and tidy up the old primary school site. The working bee starts at 8.30 am this Sunday. I hope you can come along and assist.

I like summer because I can go outside and do things, on the other hand, Netball is in winter. Today I ate lots of chocolate, as a result I feel sick. Denita
He didn’t clean his room when he was asked, as a result he was-n’t allowed to watch the movie. I wanted to buy the dress, on the other hand I wanted to save my money. Jess

I wanted to play outside but it was raining, on the other hand, if I stay inside I will not get sick. I was counting my money, meanwhile my little sister kept com-plaining that she did not have any because she spent it all. Montana
I stayed home from school one day and as a result, I had to catch up on a lot of work. Mum was outside working, meanwhile I was on the couch watch-ing TV. Mali
I didn’t do any of the jobs my mother told me to do, therefore I wasn’t allowed to go to my friend’s house on the weekend. As a result of not revising my Spelling words, I scored a 4/10. Tegan

To Kill a Mockingbird- Was the film a successful adaption?
The popular book ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ had many mysteries and lessons inside of it. After a while a film was then created for it. Did the film live up to the book or not? I think it did, yet I also thought the book and film make the story shine in different ways.
I found the book showed many lessons and messages about human na-ture and the area of Maycomb. Scout and Jem shone in the book and I also feel like they did in the film. One big difference I found between the book and the film is Scout and Jem’s relationship with Calpurnia and the way she impacted their lives. This wasn’t really shown in the film in the same way it was put across in the book.
The film lightened up the story differently to the book. I thought that the Finch family and their relationships with each other came through in the film more than in the book and showed their values and the way they went about life. When reading the book, I didn’t get a good un-derstanding about their family yet I got to see other features that the film didn’t show.
I feel like the book and film did each other justice, and the book and film
as a collective gives a greater effect and a greater story with many mes-

MATES was the brain child of Wimmera Southern Mallee LLEN and first began in 2011, now 6 years later, over 400 children have benefited. The MATES Mentoring program provides positive role models who mentor , assist, target, engage and en-hance the skills and life experiences of young people. For one hour, every second week during school hours, volunteers within the community spend valuable time with their ‘mate’. The Mentor role is that of a friend, positive role model and guide who would take a personal interest in a child’s growth and development. Hopetoun P-12 College has been actively involved in the mates program for 3 years with the results being extremely positive for both the mentee and mentor. To ensure this beneficial program can continue we are looking for more mentoring volunteers, so if you are over 18 and have a genuine desire to make a difference in a young person’s life, please read the attached brochure and contact Nicki Bellinger at the school.
