Dear Staff, Students and Parents/Carers/Gurdians,
We have had another successful year at Monbulk College. Our students have had many opportunities to embrace the diverse and exciting opportunities and learning experiences at our College. I thank our teachers and support staff for ensuring that the learning and wellbeing of students has been meeting the points of need of our students. We have continued to develop our many teaching and learning programs and this will continue in 2023.
On our final day of the 2022 school year, I take this opportunity to acknowledge and thank the students and all staff members. I would also like to express my appreciation of the leadership provided by our Assistant Principals, Kevin and Fiona, Business Manager, Jenny and to our School Council led by Colin who all provide enormous support and guidance for our College.
I would like to thank all our parents/guardians/carers for your support throughout the year and look forward to continuing to work in partnership with you in the education of your children in 2023.
Finally, to our students, can I acknowledge your efforts, your leadership, your dedication and commitment and encourage you to maximise your potential in all areas whilst at Monbulk College. The effort may be challenging, but the rewards will be well worth it!
