Return to School 2015


Welcome to new and returning students and families in 2015. We hope you had a pleasant and restful holiday season.

Here are some brief notes regarding organisational matters:



The canteen will be ready for business on Thursday, 29 January. Click the links for the current menu and lunch-order process. You will be updated should the menu change throughout 2015.

CC Lunch Order Menu




Term one is a sunsmart term – broad brimmed hats or legionnaire style hats need to be at school from day 1 and worn when outside for ALL primary school students: recess, lunch and during outdoor activities such as PE or games



Learning time starts at 8:45am for all students. Please ensure your children are at school on time. The primary school has an altered timetable for 2015. Lunch will now be from 1:05 – 1:55pm.


Secondary School Classes 2015:

A few changes have occurred during the holiday break with the addition of Learning Communities for our management structure and some new teachers we are excited about.

The secondary school will have three Learning Communities and they will be led by Liria Stratus at year 7 and 8, Kristyn Martin at year 9 and 10 and Michael Polack at VCE.

They will be supported by Home Group or Advisory teachers in each community. If you have any questions concerning your child you should contact your home group teacher first, followed by the Learning Community leader.

The home groups teachers will be Liria Stratus and Katie Cheng (7A), Stephanie Moussi (7B), Campbell Gome (7C), Melanie Singleton (7D) and at year 8 Ken Watson (8A) and Charlotte Bailey (8B).

Year 9 and 10 will be Victoria DeRome (9A), Erin O’Leary (9B), Ross Richards (9C), Alison McKean (9D), Kristyn Martin (10A), Luke Wilson (10B) and Alex McDonald (10C).

At VCE the students will be taking part in Advisory sessions from Monday to Thursday between 8:45am and 9:15am. The students will attend an advisory session at either Collingwood or Fitzroy depending on where their first session of the day occurs.

The Advisory team will be Michael Polack, Euan Morton, Theresa Powell, Lifei Zou and will be supported by Craig Bradley, Vince Vignuoli, Lisa Owens and Lucy Wang.

I wish you and your child the very best for 2015 as we look forward to another exciting year at Collingwood College.


Best wishes,

Craig Bradley

Secondary Principal
