    Hopetoun P-12 College is a Child Safe School

    Mali Horman was interviewed by Skillinvest employees, Kate and Simone for our

    annual mock interviews today. Thanks to Skillinvest for providing this wonderful

    opportunity for the students to ‘practice’ the interviewing process.

  • Principal’s Report

    Exams Commenced The Year 12 exams started yesterday with the traditional English exam. There were a few nervous stu-dents waiting outside the exam room at 8-50am yesterday but all settled down quickly and worked well during the allotted time. We had more exams today and then at least one each day for the next few weeks. We all wish the Year 12s all the very best for their exams and hope they can show that they have mas-tered the work and achieved at the very highest level possible. It’s an opportunity for each to shine and excel above their expectations. Note the school will be open and exams will continue as usual on Monday (5th November) despite it being a pupil-free day. The office will be open, exam supervisors and teachers in attendance. Parents Club Dinner and AGM

    The Hopetoun P-12 Parents Club held its dinner and Annual General Meeting last week. The dinner fol-lowed the Hopetoun tradition of students catering. It was a superb meal prepared by the Year 8-9 Food Technology elective team. They prepared, cooked and served the meal to the eager diners. The stu-dents were ably supervised and assisted by our resident chef, Courtney Jones. Mrs Jones worked with the students to plan the menu as well as cook and serve. The students were also required to clean-up and wash the dishes however a wonderful helper in the kitchen, Faye Cook, had most of the clean-up in hand which gave the students an earlier night than anticipated.

    The seventeen eager parents and friends enjoyed the meal and had a pleasant social evening. Inter-spersed with the meal was the annual meeting as well as a general meeting. The new office bearers were appointed at the AGM. Congratulations to Rexanne Marshman (president) and Donna Horman (secretary) on their two-year appointments and to Suzi Hallam (treasurer) who has another year in the position. The executive positions are based on a two-year cycle.

    Rexanne and Donna have taken over from outgoing executive members, Janine Brown (President) and Jo Petschel (Secretary). Janine and Jo have overseen a raft of changes to the structure and work of the Parents Club. Meetings have been reduced, fund raising more strategic and support for school pro-grams and activities have become progressive and aligned with School Council and school improvement initiatives. The Parents Club has achieved considerable improvements across the College under their leadership. On behalf of the students (who benefit most from Parents Club initiatives), staff, parents and the broader community I thank Janine and Jo and the entire Parents Club.

    School assembly

    One of the roles of school captains is to lead the weekly school assembly. Shiane and Kiana admitted they were a touch nervous on Tuesday when they ran their first assembly. They quickly slipped into routine, however, and ran a smooth and brisk assembly. Well done, Shiane and Kiana on a good start to your time out the front.

    We have quite a few different events coming up over the next few weeks. After the long weekend for students (Monday pupil-free and Tuesday school council holiday for Melbourne Cup), we have Youth First Aid (Years 7-9) a session on building resilience (Years 5-11), a series of end-of-year tests, literacy coaching, the Year 12 Valedictory dinner, an information session for Years 7-11 on “headspace”, Years 5-6 camp … and on the list goes as we close in towards December.
