Awards Day 2018
The ‘full house’ sign was put up outside the gym on Tuesday 18 December as we held our 2018 Awards ceremony. This truly is a great day for the college as we celebrate and recognise those students who have demonstrated the values of Buckley Park College.
Dux of Buckley Park College
Congratulations to Simon Seddon, our 2018 Dux of Buckley Park College. Simon achieved the amazing ATAR of 99.9 placing him in the very top echelon of Year 12 students. An incredible effort that reflects not only Simon’s intellect but also the amazing commitment to study he has displayed throughout his time at the college. Well done Simon.
Year 12 results 2018
Our Year 12s received their 2018 VCE results last week. It was a time of joy for many of our students and a result that reflected a year of incredible effort and commitment.
Yr12 Valedictory Dinner
The night was very well attended and it was fantastic to see families together and celebrating the achievements of their sons and daughters. It was a fitting farewell to our Yr12 students who now await…the rest of their lives. Good luck and best wishes to them all.
A-Block works underway
Painting is well underway in A-Block as we refurbish the first of our wings. Painting will be complete prior to end of year and our new furniture and lockers will arrive before students return for the new school year.
Enrolments & staffing 2019
2019 enrolments are sitting just below 1000 students. Our staffing is completed for 2019 and we will have a number of new staff joining us for the new school year. These new roles include an increase in our Welfare, Pathways/Careers and Integration teams at the college – more day to day support for our students.
FofBP election day democracy sausages
Another well run fundraiser by the FofBP with over $1000 raised on the day. Kevin O’Neill and his team of volunteers crewed the BBQ all day and were probably still cleaning up when the election result was announced at 7.20pm!
Justin Garrett regaled us with his stories from Japan over the last two weeks. Our students (and staff!) experienced the trip of a lifetime and returned with great memories and lifelong friendships.
Pupil free days 2019
Our first two work days for 2019 will be pupil free days – Tuesday 29 & Wednesday 30 January 2019. These days will be used by staff to complete professional learning and planning for the school year.
On behalf of the staff at Buckley Park College I wish all families a safe and enjoyable holiday season and we look forward to seeing you refreshed and ready for great things in 2019.
