Vice Principal News – 21 February 2019



In the last fortnight I have enjoyed attending Campus gatherings at all three campuses.  The College Game Plan has been highlighted on all occasions.  The following summarises our strategies for enhancing student achievement.

Catholic Identity – orientating towards Christ

Positive Learning Partnerships – building stronger relationships

Differentiation – enabling growth for all

Wellbeing for learning – teaching the skills of wellbeing


Cycle 1 Reports and Student Progress Meetings

Cycle 1 reports are currently being prepared for students. The Cycle 1 report for Year 7 to 12 students will be published on 3 March.

Student progress meetings will take place later in the term on the following dates. I encourage all parents to make bookings. The benefits of this meetings can be significant.

  • Thursday 21 March (2.00pm – 8.00pm)
  • Wednesday 27 March (2.00pm – 8.00pm)

Bookings open on PAM at 6pm on March 7.

On both 21 and 27 March, students will be dismissed at 1.00pm.


Professional Learning Day

Friday 22 March is a Staff Professional Learning Day.  Teachers will be engaged in sessions focussed on leading differentiated learning activities.  This will be a student free day for students at all campuses.


Learning Resource Centres

A reminder that College Learning Resource Centres are open before classes and after classes each day of the week.

The opening hours for the LRCs across Monday to Friday each week is as follows:

  • Berwick Campus: 8.00am – 5.00pm

PAM – student medical system and online excursion consent system

Thank you to parents who have entered their child’s medical details on PAM.  A reminder that this is now due to be completed. 

We are now using PAM for online excursion consent.  Hard copies are no longer being used.  Medical information must be up to date on PAM to allow for excursion consent to be granted.  Parents receive an email when excursion consent is requested.


Instructions can be found on PAM via the Knowledge Bank and by selecting the following selections:

  1. Parent Information
  2. Medical Action and Management Plans


There you will find:

  • PAM – how to enter student medical details (a short movie)
  • PAM – how to enter student medical details guide (printed instructions)


If you need assistance accessing PAM please email


If you require any help with uploading medical information to PAM please email the Campus First Aid Officer:
