Year 12 Formal Celebrations


Dear parents and carers.

Happy new year, I hope you've had a lovely holiday period. Our team has been back at work this week preparing for the new school year, we are very excited for the term ahead and looking forward to welcoming our students to the College next week.

We expect all year 11 students at 830am sharp next Monday the 4th of February for a welcome assembly in the theatre followed promptly by first classes. Year 12 are expected at 830am sharp on Tuesday the 5th in the theatre for their welcome assembly prior to first classes starting. Next week is referred to as 'O' week as shorthand for 'orientation' week. Whilst students will commence immediately with classes, there will also be a range of housekeeping and pastoral care activities designed to ensure the best possible start to the year. New students will have the opportunity to participate in various social activities and join groups that interest them.

All students will have interviews with their MI Group teachers to discuss their plans and study packages, and will be able to change classes in the first week if necessary. Students will be able to collect a copy of their timetable, hire lockers and get student ID photos through the front office. Hawker College T Shirts and Hoodies are also available for sale. 51 Bake will be open for students wishing to purchase morning tea and lunch with cash or EFTPOS options available for payment. 

I ask for your support to ensure students are dressed appropriately as they might for a professional workplace, with covered footwear and  sensible clothing.

It will be a busy week for everyone. Some students may be nervous about starting the school year in a new school. Please remember that we are here to enable learning and wellbeing for all of our students, so my message is to communicate with staff if there are any problems.

See you all soon!

Andy Mison
