Principal's Report - Newsletter Issue 8 2020

Dear parents, caregivers, staff and students


Welcome to term 4. I hope that all families, staff and students have had an enjoyable and productive beginning to the school term.


Annual General Meeting of the Governing Council

Parents/caregivers are invited to attend the Annual General Meeting of the governing council on Tuesday 17 November 2020 at 6:00pm being held in the music centre, The Stables (parking is available in the visitor carpark).  The Annual General Meeting provides a valuable opportunity for parents / caregivers to receive information and reports regarding the work that the school undertakes and to elect parents and 2 community members to the 2021 governing council committee.


The governing council performs a range of functions including:


  • involving the school community in the governance of the school
  • setting the broad direction and vision of the school
  • strategic planning for the school
  • determining policies for the school, including policies for safety, welfare, wellbeing and discipline of students
  • determining the application of the total financial resources available to the school, including regular review of the budget
  • reporting to the school community and the Minister.


Year 12 students

On Monday 26 October, the year 12 graduation and presentation evening was held on the Flat at Marryatville due to the COVID restrictions at the Adelaide Town Hall.  It was a special evening surrounded by our ‘trees’ as we presented the year 12 students with their graduation certificates. This occasion provided an opportunity to recognise and celebrate the achievements of our year 12 students thus far, and to wish them well for their future beyond secondary schooling.


Tuesday 27 October marked the final day for our year 12 students where students and staff attended a breakfast at Eden Park to commemorate and congratulate students on their hard work and effort throughout the year. On behalf of all staff, I would like to wish year 12 students all the very best and every success during their examination period.


Year 7 Transition Visits

Year 7 students who will be commencing year 8 at Marryatville High School in 2021 will be attending the school for their transition visit on Wednesday 2 December. This transition visit allows year 7 students to become familiar with their new school surroundings. Parents of students commencing year 8 in 2021 are invited to the year 7 parent information evening also being held on Wednesday 2 December at 6:00pm in the Forge.
