What a year it has been! I couldn’t be prouder of what the College community has achieved in challenging circumstances. We have shown our strength and resilience by choosing to move forward and face challenges rather than stand frozen and question why. Congratulations and thanks on a job well done to all members of our College community!
The final few weeks of the school year have been a time for assessment and reflection on student growth in each subject area. Senior students have competed their final exams, Year 10 and 11 students have transitioned into their 2021 classes and students from Years 7-9 have undergone diagnostic testing in preparation for the 2021 school year. Student reports have been completed and awards presented to high achieving students across the College.

On December 8, we welcomed the incoming Year 7 cohort for their first day as Lilydale Heights College students. The students took the opportunity to meet their peers, familiarise themselves with the College environment and begin to make connections with staff. Welcome!
In closing, I would like to wish all our students, staff and their families a very restful and safe holiday period. Stay well!
