Welcome to the May edition of our Connect Newsletter for 2024.

With Term 2 not past its halfway point the College is incredibly busy with a number of milestone events and days occurring. It has been pleasing to see students modelling our Value of Leadership which is a focus for Term 2. Students have been:

  • learning to hold themselves and others accountable by organising themselves to complete tasks and meet deadlines.
  • learning to be open to new and different ways of learning by challenging themselves and persisting with learning.
  • learning to treat everyone fairly by behaving in ways that doesn’t disrupt the learning of others.



The College and our Community observed ANZAC Day earlier this term. The College continued our tradition of focusing assemblies in this week on reflecting and remembering those who have or are currently serving in our armed forces.

This year, we also had two of our students Seham Eyada and Sofia Zovko representing the College on ANZAC Day at Craigieburn ANZAC Park



Greenvale Secondary College together with the Department of Education acknowledged IDAHOBIT Day on Friday 17 May.

IDAHOBIT day is the International Day against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexism, Transphobia discrimination. 17th May 2024 marks the anniversary of the day in 1990 when the World Health Organization removed homosexuality from the Classification of disease and related health problems.

We acknowledge and celebrate this day to raise awareness of the discrimination that LGBTIQ+ people still face.



This year, Education Week runs from Monday 13 to Friday 17 May. This year’s theme, Spotlight on STEM, highlights the importance of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) in our everyday lives, in the classroom and beyond.

Throughout Education Week, students, parents/carers, teachers, and school communities are encouraged to celebrate and share ideas to learn more about the endless possibilities of STEM.



Below are copies of the newly created College History and College Strategic Plan visual documents. These were developed by current staff and selected students as a creative way to share our history and what the future of our College will be like!

Please take the time to look at these and become more familiar with the work our College has achieved and will be working towards.

It is almost unbelievable that we are halfway through term two already! The weeks have flown by. Perhaps it only feels like time is speeding by because we have so much going on this term at Greenvale Secondary College.

Firstly, the Annual Attitudes to School Survey has been sent out for your child to complete. We look forward to reading the results!


School Council recently approved changes to our College calendar which sees Monday 19 August now as a Student Free Day.

This day has been approved by School Council and will be used for all staff to complete Protective Intervention Training and the preparation works for School Wide Positive Behaviour Support.

Term 2 is very busy with most of our sport teams out competing, after training Wednesdays before school, in Enhancement for a number of weeks. We thank them for their participation, enthusiasm and representation of the school in such a positive way.

We have the annual Attitudes to School Survey that Victorian Government school students complete each year to inform future work we do in the school. We value their honesty and look forward to receiving the results.

Students are currently completing Milestone Tasks to demonstrate the knowledge and skills they have acquired in the first part of their learning and show teachers gaps that need to be addressed before the CAT (Common Assessment Task).

SWPBS (School Wide Positive Behaviour Support) is a Department of Education program to creative positive, predictable, and safe learning environments to benefit the learning of all. Our primary focus now is working on reducing Level 1 behaviours so that we see an improvement in following instruction, productive learning, being on time to class and ready to learn, and giving respect to all. The strategies we are using are:

  • Teaching and re-teaching positive behaviours 
  • Concentrating on helping students to be ready to learn at the start of the lesson
  • Consistently and frequently rewarding students who do the right thing with positive recognition (verbal, gesture or compass post)

During April we had 142 Positive Recognitions and May we have had 187. At the same time we have seen reports of level 1 behaviours decreasing each month this year.

Please follow the link below to learn more about the program and how you can support this at home.

By now, all students will have completed Milestone tasks in each of their classes. Teachers will be setting aside time in their lessons to give feedback for students to take on before embarking on their Common Assessment Tasks in week 8 of this term.


Feedback is a powerful tool for growth and improvement. Whether it comes from teachers, peers, or self-reflection, feedback provides invaluable insights into our strengths and areas for development.

Incorporating feedback effectively requires an open mindset and a willingness to learn from both successes and setbacks. When receiving feedback, consider it not as criticism but as an opportunity for refinement. Actively listen, reflect, and identify actionable steps to implement the feedback constructively. By doing so, we not only enhance our academic performance but also foster a culture of continuous improvement within our school community. Students who have not shown growth or who have not completed tasks will be asked to meet with their teachers in their own time, complete extra learning tasks in school and for homework. 

You can support your students at home by asking about tasks, setting aside time and space for students to complete homework and encourage your student to seek help from the staff here at Greenvale if they are stuck or unsure of a task.

With Unit 2 assessments approaching, preparation is key to achieving academic goals. Start by being familiar with assessment formats, content, and expectations outlined by the teachers, always refer back to the Rubrics you were given at the start of the topic. This might be as a paper copy, on your class Teams channel or on Compass.

They say time flies when you’re having fun, we must be having a lot of fun in the Junior School as it seems the year is flying by. We are on the downhill slope towards the end of the term and there’s still a lot to get done in that time.

A highlight this term was the Athletics Carnival that occurred in week 2. It was really pleasing to see many Year 7 and 8 students competing for their house and cheering on other students competing. Photos of the day are included in this report.

Prior to ANZAC Day the College participated in a whole school assembly, the assembly recognised the importance of ANZAC Day but also celebrated achievements of school occurrences and a fantastic solo violin performance by Alya Esen in Year 8. Photos of the assembly are included in this report.

Students have been working well in class and are preparing for CATs these will appear on their mid-year report which will be out at the end of the term.



It is very nice to be able to go out and experience excursions visiting other venues is a great way to boost the teaching and learning that happens here at Greenvale Secondary College. It is also a great way to extend or enhance the programs that are occurring at the school. A recent excursion was a QV Escape Room which gave students in year 7 and 8 the opportunity to apply logic problem solving to get through the escape room challenges.

This term in the Junior School we have had a big push on displaying the school values and receiving a positive recognition. Each week there has been a challenge to see which mentor group has the highest number of Positive Recognitions and which student has the most. It’s really pleasing to see the students have responded well to this and the numbers of Positive Recognitions be high.

Our instrumental music program started with performances very early this term. We had students perform at our 2025 Year 7 information night which took place in the first week of Term 2. The students who gave up their evening to perform were: Leyla Cayir (on guitar), Azelya Cayir (on bass guitar), Khadijah Mian and Defne Ozelik (who sang as a duo) and Wesley Van Der Molen (on guitar). It was great to hear the performers showcase some of the many talents that we have at Greenvale Secondary College.


During the second week of Term 2 we were fortunate enough to have Alya Esen perform on the violin at our whole school assembly commemorating ANZAC day. This takes a lot of courage to do and we commend Alya on her performances and the confidence that she showed.


During Term 1 our school ensemble resumed regular practice sessions (which are held after school each Wednesday). The ensemble has now grown in size as many students have chosen to explore ensemble as part of their enhancement class. It’s been great seeing more students engage in learning a musical instrument and learning how to play in time with others. The ensemble has been working on some challenging pieces including We Don’t Talk About Bruno. We would still love for our school ensemble to grow and we welcome more students to enquire about learning an instrument and joining ensemble.


Instrumental music students have been very busy this term as they work towards music performances and assessments. We are very excited to be holding our first concerts which will take place in the library during recess and lunch on 27 May. These performances will involve many of the students who have signed up for instrumental lessons along with our school ensemble. This year we also have an additional ensemble that was formed during Term 2 which consists of Defne Ozcelik and Khadijah Mian on lead vocals, Blake Laurie on electric piano, Alyshia Laurie on drums, Wesley Van Der Molen on guitar, Azelya Cayir on bass guitar and Deniz Bagriyanik on alto saxophone. This ensemble has been rehearsing during a few of their lunch breaks and are sounding fantastic. We cannot wait to hear them perform Kyoto by Phoebe Bridges.


Greenvale Secondary College is very fortunate to be able to offer a wide range of instrumental lessons. It is not too late to sign up to learn any of the instruments on offer. We offer the following instruments to learn; Saxophone, Clarinet, Flute, Trumpet, Trombone, Tuba, Euphonium Violin, Viola and Cello. These instruments are also available to hire through the school.

The Greenvale Secondary College community recently celebrated an exhilarating Athletics Carnival, with Biderap House emerging as the proud victors. The event, held on a sun-drenched day, saw students from all houses competing with immense enthusiasm and sportsmanship. The house champions were as follows:

Year 7 – Cole Taylor & Matisse Merrett

Year 8 – Alaa El Moustafa & Laibah Khan

Year 9 – Aleksandar Jevtic & Evelyn Koko

The excitement of the Athletics Carnival seamlessly transitioned into the Interschool sports season, where Greenvale’s teams showcased their talents across various disciplines. The netball teams demonstrated exceptional skill and coordination, making the school proud with their strategic play and resilience.

In the cross-country events, our athletes endured the grueling course at Woodlands Historic Park, showing remarkable endurance and perseverance. Their dedication to training and teamwork was evident as they pushed through tough competition to secure commendable positions. Notably was Noah Tarallo who placed first and set the track record for under 15 boys.

Our boys’ AFL and soccer teams have also been making headlines. The AFL team, known for their agility and tactical prowess, delivered thrilling matches that kept spectators on the edge of their seats. Their commitment to the game and each other was inspirational, reflecting the true spirit of Greenvale sportsmanship.

The boys’ soccer team, equally impressive, displayed remarkable skill and teamwork, securing notable victories that have cemented their reputation in the interschool league. Their cohesion on the field and ability to execute complex plays have been a testament to their hard work and dedication.

Greenvale Secondary College’s sports programs continue to foster a sense of community, resilience, and excellence. The school is immensely proud of all its athletes and looks forward to more triumphs in the future. Congratulations to all the participants and a special shout-out to Biderap House for their remarkable win at the Athletics Carnival. Go Greenvale!

The social media work and technology world that we currently live in, is like no other. We have instant access to information, people, purchasing online, strangers, films and music. There are a lot of positives of the world of technology

Social Media platforms- did you know that the recommended age for the majority of the social media platforms is 13+. How old is your child/ ren?  As a parent/ caregiver how are you monitoring your child’s use?  Who can see your child’s details?  Who is your child communicating with?  Are you aware that many of the games online have a chat component?

Catfishing- Catfishing is when someone sets up a fake online identity and uses it to trick and control others. Often they do it to scam people out of money, blackmail them or harm them in some other way. Many people online are not who they say that they are. What measures do you take to confirm that people are who they say they are?

We invite students to explore these acclaimed titles, each offering enriching narratives and diverse perspectives. Here are just a few from our collection. Happy reading!


From the CBCA-shortlisted author of Huda and Me, this is the second in the series:

 “Huda hatches a bold plan to help her dad get a job – which lands her and her brother in all kinds of trouble. A delightful and hilarious story from a CBCA award-winning author, about a lion-hearted girl who just wants the best for her family. A thoroughly entertaining story full of hijinks, courage and hilarity.”

A cleverly crafted, powerful and engaging read, this book expertly juxtaposes the protagonist Jimmy’s perception of life with the understanding offered by its adult characters. The plot provides Jimmy and the reader with the opportunity to learn and grow. His strength of character, vulnerability, love and determination empower him and simultaneously enable the reader to find joy and hope even in the darkest of experiences.

This text delicately integrates and balances humour in a way that engages the reader without compromising its authenticity. An arresting read that sensitively addresses challenging themes, including, domestic violence, mental health, life on the run and death, in a hope filled way.

Author, Fiona Lloyd  had a talk with Not Quite Write podcast, listen here:

Depending on how confident a student is about their reading identity, choosing books can either be enjoyable or frustrating. Students need different strategies to select books. They need the time and space to practice.

Students who know what they like to read

For students who know their reading preferences, browsing strategies may include looking for:

  • favourite authors
  • authors they’ve heard of and are interested in reading
  • titles recommended by family, friends and reviews
  • favourite genre sections (if books are arranged this way)
  • recently returned books
  • new book displays
  • books that are shortlisted for book awards e.g. CBCA 2024 Shortlisted Books

Younger readers

For younger readers, selection strategies may include:

  • Goldilocks strategy — is this book too easy, too hard or just right?
  • I PICK mnemonic for ‘good fit’ books — I choose a book:
    • that meets my Purpose
    • that matches my Interest
    • that I can Comprehend
    • where I Know enough words.

Other general strategies

  • Look at the title and the cover — does it appeal?
  • Read the blurb — does it interest you?
  • Read the first page or two.
  • Read information about the author on the jacket.
  • Look at the print size or layout for ease of reading.
  • Listen to friends’, teachers’, parents’ and library staff’s suggestions.
  • Look for popular authors and series.
  • Check displays.

It’s also important to remind students to experiment. Share your own stories of trying something new. Some important messages include:

  • Give a book a fair chance — read several pages or chapters before giving up on it.
  • Try different genres and forms.

Daily school attendance is important for all children and young people to succeed in education and to ensure they don’t fall behind both socially and developmentally. Children and young people who regularly attend school and complete Year 12 or an equivalent qualification have better health outcomes, better employment outcomes, and higher incomes across their lives. It is important that children develop habits of regular attendance at an early age. 

We realise some absences are unavoidable due to health problems or other circumstances. But we also know that when students miss too much school – regardless of the reason – it can cause them to fall behind academically.  

It is important that you contact the school as soon as possible on 8393 0000 or log onto the Compass Portal to inform us of your child’s absence.  

We also ask parents/guardians/carers to regularly monitor their child’s attendance through the Compass Parent Portal.
