NAPLAN - message to parents

Dear parents, NAPLAN testing starts on Tuesday next week. The school is under renovation with the roofing project and we are having the testing in classroom spaces which will cause some disruption to the normal patterns of the school day for all teachers and students. The school will be providing drinking water and a healthy snack after the testing but it is advised that students start the day with a good breakfast and bring their water bottle to fill up.All students will be reminded about their participation and the importance of trying to do their best as well as allowing everyone else the opportunity to do the same.

Introducing the School Board Candidates

We have three nominees vying for one Parent and Citizens position on the Melrose High School Board.  Voting opens Monday 22 February at 11 am and closes Monday 29 February at 11 am.  Voting slips must be picked up from the Front Office during business hours and returned to the locked box by close of voting.  There is no electronic voting.  Below is an introductory statement for each of the candidates.

Craig JonesI have two children at Melrose High School and have been on the School Board for the last two years.  I have a strong interest in ensuring that the school is able to provide the best possible education for our children and I actively contribution to agenda items.  Professionally I have an Information Technology and Project Management background with Government and the Private sector.  This experience has helped me contribute to the Board practices and curriculum developed by the school staff.  I am keen to continue my involvement with the Board, particularly with the introduction of "bring your own devices" and online education.  I feel my background will provide valuable input as the school evolves over the next few years with the next generation of education.

Boushra MahfoudMy name is Boushra, I am a mother for 2 children at Melrose High School. I hold a secretary position at my work, a role which demands excellent oral and written communication skills, excellent liaison and relationship building skills, and consistently excellent administration and management skills. I have a high level of personal commitment and unquestionable personal honesty and integrity.  I am a highly organised, an excellent communicator, and a builder of productive relationships.I would like bring these skills to Melrose High School and assist with the School Board.

Tim PotterHi, my Name is Tim Potter and I would love to be involved in the Melrose High School Board. My son Sterling started year 7 at Melrose this year and in 3 years Charlotte will also be joining.  I hope to be given the chance to take an active part in the Melrose community for the next 7 years.  I have enjoyed the last six years on a Victorian primary school council as vice president and the representative on the finance committee. I believe in smooth running management to allow the true character of the school to flourish through the teachers and students.  A school is central to many communities and needs to be a role model for students who are being educated in life as well as studies.

For more information on the voting process please contact the Assistant Returning Officer  at ruth.mahon@ed.act.edu.au
