New Respectful Behaviours in Schools
The Department of Education has created a new web page for parents, linking to the new Respectful Behaviours within the School Community Policy. This information provides support for parents to engage positively with school staff, including the appropriate pathways for raising concerns or complaints with schools and other useful resources for parents. Click here for further information.
This work is linked to the new laws introduced by the Andrews Government, which strengthens protections for school staff against parent and career aggression by empowering authorised persons, such as principals, to issue School Community Safety Orders in response to harmful, threatening, abusive or disruptive behaviour at work.
The new School Community Safety Order scheme will be introduced to all schools in mid-2022. Click here for further information.
Violent and aggressive behaviour has no place in Victorian school communities. Staff should not feel that being subjected to violence and aggression is part of the job and are encouraged to report any risks or incidents of violence and aggression to their school leader and through their reporting mechanisms.
We are pleased that the Department is taking a strong stance to communicate to the school community the behaviours which are unacceptable.
New Building – Science
Preparation for the new building project is moving along. All the science equipment is being packed up and moved to J Block. This is an enormous task and the science teachers have been amazed at just how much equipment can be stored in cupboards. Even though we are losing access to the science labs, teachers will make sure students still manage to have the best possible science experience until the rebuild has been completed.
