I would like to extend a warm welcome back to new and existing VPSHS families as we commence Term 2. We continue to strive towards all students engaging in a culture to Learn, Think, Perform through Respect, Integrity and Responsibility so that all students are succeeding. We will achieve this through ensuring high expectations for all students, communicating and demonstrating respectful partnerships between students, parents and staff that value active participation in our classrooms and within our community in and beyond the school gates.
Today, we celebrated the successes of our sporting students in the pool and on Friday we honour the memory of those who have fought for our country in various military conflicts, both past and present at this year's ANZAC Commemorative Service. We are looking forward to showcasing our school's teaching and learning strengths as we participate in a Priority School Review and gain valuable feedback from the four reviewers on-site from 9 – 12 May 2022.
