Happy World Teachers' Day 2020:
Today is World Teachers' Day in Australia!
It is a day to thank our teachers for the amazing work they do to educate students. It is also a day for teachers to celebrate the work that they do.
At Alkimos College our students were able to fill in slips to recognise their teachers. We had an amazing response with 393 slips filled in by our 176 students! Our teachers will receive their slips today and I am sure will laugh and cry at the wonderful messages that the students have written!
At assembly today we recognised World Teachers' Day and did a random draw from the 393 nominations. Both the student that nominated and the teacher received a prize!
Well done to Dan for nominating Mr Martin (who was absent today, so Mr Hatzis accepted his gift on his behalf), Skye for nominating Mr Reece and Kaelah for nominating Mr Bastow!
Teachers enjoyed a sumptuous morning tea feast with a Halloween theme, provided by our support staff and Mr Giles was selected to cut the special World Teachers' Day cake on behalf of his colleagues.

Book Week 2020
Curious Creatures, Wild Minds
Each year, schools and public libraries across Australia spend a week celebrating books, and Australian authors and illustrators. Teachers and librarians conduct activities relating to a theme to highlight the importance of reading.
This is our first Book Week here at Alkimos College and boy, have we set a great standard for future years!
This week we have had activities at break times, including: word games, screenings of novel to films, matching a novel to a teacher, theatre production of Tell Tale Heart, book mark competition and today is Character Dress Up Day!
Big thank you to our Head of English - Mrs McSweeney, English teachers Miss Noble and Mrs Dinan and our wonderful Library Officer Mrs Lavender for coordinating this weeks activities and displays.
ALL of the staff dressed up today and we were pleased to see so many of our students participating too! Such creativity and we will certainly be making Book Week an annual tradition here at Alkimos College.

Alkimos Instructional Program:
On our School Development Days (pupil free) our teaching staff and Education Assistants engage in our unique college instructional program.
The program aims to build the capacity of our staff to be more 'instructionally intelligent', build their repertoire of strategies and be better able to reflect on, and deconstruct their practice.
Our college staff are highly competent, reflective practitioners and the level of commitment and engagement to this program throughout the year has been oustanding.
Our parents/carers and indeed students, should be assured that our staff are always looking at ways to consolidate and improve upon their practice to make learning more relevant, engaging, purposeful and FUN!
These photos show our staff participating further in the program on Monday 12 October. ... See MoreSee Less
