Principal’s Message

Mid-semester is Learning Conversation time. Our students are supported by their LSG teacher and parents and caregivers to reflect on their achievements and challenges in the Learning Conversations. In the range of conversations that I saw and overheard there was a gradual progression in self-awareness and student-agency across the year levels which was pleasing to see.

Save the Date: The ASMS is 20 years old this year! We will be holding our anniversary celebrations Saturday 19 August including an Open Day and a Cocktail Reception, all on site. More information will be provided in the coming weeks.

Wellness reminder: If a student or staff member is unwell, they should rest at home for the best chances of recovery and return to school when they are symptom free. Any requirements about schoolwork can be negotiated through LSG teachers and Learning Area Leaders when the person is well enough to return.

The Capital Works refurbishment program is well underway. We are continuing to work closely with the architects, DIT and the Department for Education and the program is on track to be completed by the end of May although some areas are completed already. We are very thankful to students and staff who have continued to be flexible and adaptable throughout the building works.

A reminder that we offer the ASMS Graduate Student Tutoring Program every Tuesday in LC4 after lunch. The tutors, overseen by Daisy Keating, provide tuition in a range of subjects to support current students in their learning and work on areas where additional assistance and support is required. Ideally students should come prepared with the tasks and assignments they require assistance with, and to have identified the specific areas in which they require help.

It’s been a busy term, I hope you enjoy reading about some of our activities in this edition of info@ASMS!
