Berwick Campus – 7 February 2019

Welcome to 2019

A warm welcome is extended to all students, parents and staff of our school community, particularly for those families who are new to the College. It promises to be an exciting year ahead as we look to the 2019 theme of We Grow Together.

This reminds us of the need for unity and to apply a sense of teamwork in our approach to everything we do in 2019. This will help yield the best results for all students in both a pastoral and academic sense.

 

Traffic Regulations

A reminder to all parents about the traffic regulations in place at the Berwick Campus.

The St Francis Xavier College Executive, along with the City of Casey, Victoria Police, and St Catherine’s Primary School have collaborated to put in place strategies to enhance the traffic flow coming in and out of the school during peak times.

In short, the traffic measures put in place can be summarised as follows:

  • Right hand turns will not be permitted into and from the Berwick Campus between 8.00am–9.30am and 2.30pm–4.00pm.
  • Cars wishing to turn into the school will do so via a left hand turn only. Cars will need to turn at the roundabout on the corner of Ridgemont Drive and Flowerfield Court so they are positioned to do a left hand turn back into the schools.
  • The speed limit on school grounds will remain at 5 km. This speed is equivalent to walking pace.

Thanks for your support with these changes to enhance a smooth traffic flow into and from our school.

Alternatively, many parents elect to implement pick up/drop off arrangements with their children that avoid the need to enter the campus including utilising the carpark at the council sporting grounds on Grices Road which has a clear pathway towards the school grounds. This type of arrangement may become increasingly significant as St Catherine’s Primary School undergo major construction works throughout 2019

 

Year 7 Information Evening 

Wednesday February 13 – 7.00pm Berwick Hall

Please be advised that there will be an information evening held for all parents to attend with their son/daughter on Wednesday 13 February commencing at 7.00pm in the Berwick Hall where an overview of the 2019 learning priorities will be shared along with a special care group session that is designed to strengthen the home-school partnership through a strengths-based lens.

All Year 7 students are expected to attend in full school uniform and to bring their device. We anticipate that the evening will conclude at approximately 8:30pm.

We hope that you can join us for this evening and we look forward to working in partnership with you in 2019.
