I must commend our staff as always
for their excellent work – particularly
for the introduction of a completely
new reporting approach which has
required a huge amount of behind
the scenes effort from many people,
but most importantly will provide a
much better and more informative
and accurate system for reporting on
student progress and improvement.
Particular thanks to Ms Harrap, Ms
Mackin, Mr Mahalingam and Mr
Wilson for their leadership of this
initiative.

IMPORTANT – Absence Hotline
Currently our absence hotline is experiencing some technical difficulties where voicemails are not

In the interim, if your child is going to be absent please email the absence email address at [email protected]

Compass Login Details
Behaviour on Trains and at the Station
The office reminds parents to keep their Compass Login
details somewhere secure so that they are able to refer
to these when they need to in regards to the remainder
of their child’s education at NHS. Our staff are unable
to provide students with parent log in details; a request
would need to come directly from parents, if required. The office has been inundated lately with emails and
phone calls from parents requesting their login details.
This ties up phone lines and staff time and, given the
phone system is not operating effectively, reduces our
ability to attended to other calls, especially in the case of
an emergency. The login details do not change from term
to term so these need to be retained.
I have received a number of disappointing and worrying
reports of silly, dangerous and discourteous behaviours by
some of our students at the Berwick Railway Station and
on trains recently. I have spoken with Year 9 at assembly
and remind all students to regulate their language,
volume and behaviour in those areas. This is not the sort
of feedback I am accustomed to receiving about Nossal
students and it reflects badly on us all.
We also request that parents (and students) adhere strictly
to due dates for the return of consent forms as failure to
do this creates major organisational difficulties when
trying to plan and manage school events and excursions.
We are endeavouring to be much more stringent about
this and students who do not return forms by the due
date will not be allowed to attend the event.

Congratulations to the Softballers
However….
I received the following email this afternoon from a
teacher at another local school……thanks to the girls and
Ms Desaulniers…..very nice feedback
Subject: Great sportsmanship by intermediate softball team
Good afternoon,
My name is Lucie Turner and I am a teacher at Gleneagles
Secondary College. I brought a team of Year 9 girls to interschool softball today and versed against an intermediate
team of girls from Nossal. My students had never played
softball before but wanted to put a team together to give
it a go. I spoke with the Nossal students at the beginning of
the game to let them know that my girls had never played
before, and to please have some patience. I just want to
express my gratitude for the maturity and support shown by
your students in encouraging students of Gleneagles in the
game. Furthermore, the students and their coach Michelle
took the time to show the girls how to pitch, hold the bat and
steal bases. It was a great day and my students thoroughly
enjoyed the opportunity to play.
with senior Government officials who wished to visit
Nossal and discuss the possibilities of further exchanges)
This is a wonderful opportunity for us, and it is the first
such exchange they have considered. My thanks to Ms
Graystone for hosting Mr Kaneko, Ms Warner, Mr Bramley,
Ms Mizoe and Ms Dilollo for their organisation and, in
particular, to Hirotaka Chong of Year 11 for his excellent
hosting, interpreting and assistance with the visit.

Wayne has recently gained the position of Principal at Mt
Alexander College in Flemington. He will take up this role
at the start of Term 2, so it has been a rather rushed final
few days for him, and we will hold a more formal farewell
function for him next term. It is bittersweet when a key
member of the team gains promotion elsewhere, and I
acknowledge and commend Wayne for this achievement,
even though he will be greatly missed. Wayne was the
first teacher (Leading Teacher) appointed to Nossal High
School in 2009, and played a key role in setting up many

of the events, traditions, structures and programs that
Nossal now enjoys. He can take credit for significant
Nossal successes in student leadership, restorative
practices, Aviation, the House System, the co-curricular
and wellbeing programs….and many more.
He has filled the role of Leading Teacher, Assistant Principal
and Acting Principal at Nossal and has been a vital cog in
the leadership of the school since our inception in 2009.
Our loss is Mt Alexander’s gain.
Finally
I wish all members of the Nossal community an enjoyable
term break, encourage you all to be safe, take some time
to rest, relax and enjoy different things, and I look forward
to seeing you all back in Term 2 on TUESDAY April 14.
(Monday April 13 is a pupil free day and all Nossal staff
will be at Melbourne High School with staff from Suzanne
Cory and MacRob for the 3rd Annual Selective Entry
Network Curriculum Day)
Roger Page
I sincerely thank him for his professionalism, dedication,
hard work, reliability and compassion over the past five
and a half years. I have greatly enjoyed working with him.
I wish him well in his new role, and look forward to seeing
him shape and transform his new school.

International Conference for the Gifted
and Talented
Dear Parents, Students and Community Members,
It is hard to believe that we have reached the end of Term
1; it has flown by. It has been a relatively short term of only
8 teaching weeks, but we have packed so much into it…..
4 camps, 2 sports carnivals, WotOpera and new reports,
not to mention the day to day teaching and learning that
takes place. It is no wonder that staff and students are
ready for a well-deserved break.
Farewell to Wayne Haworth
Last week he and I spoke about Nossal at the International
Conference for the Gifted and Talented at the Brisbane
Convention Centre. We had many compliments about the
pedagogy and culture we have established here to cater
for our unique cohort of students, and had many requests
from educators from across the globe to visit and see
first-hand what we are doing. Seeing and hearing from
other educators reaffirmed for us that we have (and are
continuing to create) a culture, environment and approach
that is seen both as innovative and highly supportive and
challenging for our students.
Speaking of well-deserved, I would like to formally
congratulate and acknowledge the work of Mr Wayne
Haworth, our other assistant principal, who is departing
us to take up a Principalship at Mt Alexander College next
term. Wayne has been a tireless and enthusiastic ‘servant’
to Nossal, and has played a significant role in establishing
the great school that we have today. I have loved working
along-side him as a member of the Executive and Principal
teams and will miss his positivity, eternal optimism and
drive. I wish him all the best in his new role.

by The Valley Private Hospital in Dandenong for a student
to observe a surgery. We are pleased to announce the

Special Event for Parents – International
Speaker, Dan Haesler
I encourage all parents to
book their FREE tickets to
hear Dan Haesler here at
Nossal on Wednesday April
15 at 7.30 pm. As part of
our new strategic plan and
Whole School Approach to
Wellbeing we are focusing
on developing Growth
Mindsets in our students
(and staff ). We have this
focus because a Growth
Mindset is good for all
aspects of life, including academic achievement, future
success, a sense wellbeing and ongoing good mental
health, just to name a few. Dan will be speaking to parents
about how best to support their children to develop this
mindset. We hope to get all parents there so that we can
all work together on this. Dan will also speak to students
and staff during the day. Please book your seats so that
you don’t miss out and so that we can effectively plan
the venue. See the flyer in this newsletter for details.
Year 9 Parent-Student-Teacher
Conferences Thursday April 16
We have another parent teacher evening at the beginning
of next term dedicated solely to the Year 9 students.
Classes will finish at 12.20 pm for students on this day, and
interviews will take place from 2.00 pm – 8.30 pm. Please
make sure you book on Compass and take advantage of
the opportunity to meet with your child’s teachers.
Osuri - Observe a Surgery winner
The staff in general have also done an enormous amount
of work to ensure you received your reports in a timely
and professional manner. Change is hard but, at Nossal,
the staff just roll up their sleeves and get on with it when
they see the advantages to students and families.
I would also like to thank the many parents who have
taken the time to write or call me about reports; both
those seeking clarification and those providing us with
positive feedback about our approach. I would also like
to thank the students for their responsible approach to
making self-assessments and encourage the few who
required chasing up to be more reliable next time.
Year 10 Students – Morrisby Report
Year 10 students and parents are reminded that their
Careers and Pathways aptitude test is to be completed on
Wednesday 29 April from 12:00 noon to 3:15 pm. This is

early lunch on this day, but must stay until the completion
of the test.
Year 10 Students – Work Experience
Year 10 students are reminded to continue their search
and organisation for Work Experience which takes place in
the week of Monday 22 – Friday 26 June (the last week of
Term 2). The forms and OHS modules (legal requirements)
must be completed and signed by Friday May 22. The

Triple N > Careers.
Reports Release – Thank you
Communication Alert
The release of reports went smoothly on Thursday
March 19, (which is always a relief when you implement
something new). I would like to formally thank Ms
Tracey Mackin, Mr Ramesh Mahalingam, Mr Joe Wilson
and Ms Christine Weller for their leadership of both staff
and students throughout the implementation of these
new reports. We will now be analysing the results and
following up with students who may need extra support.
Due to an ongoing problem with the school phone
system, voice messages are unable to be accessed.
When attempting to contact the school via telephone,
please persevere until your call is answered by
reception.
We apologise for the inconvenience and are working
to have this problem rectified as soon as possible.
Thank you for your understanding and support.

students is Tuesday April 14. Staff begin the day before
with our annual Select Entry Network professional
learning day at Melbourne High School, where all four
schools get together for learning and sharing about
educating our unique cohorts.
I trust that all students and staff have a happy, safe and

Assistant Principal News - Mr Wayne Haworth
Farewell
It is been a great privilege to have been part of establishing
one of the greatest schools in Victoria and for that matter
Australia. We have achieved much together and have
much to be proud of. It is gratifying to look back at
planning days even prior to the staff appointments and
the first classes commencing. I recall the first school day
for Nossal students, a time when new lifelong relationships
were formed and when classes were taught at Monash.
Each successive year saw the addition of more equally
enthusiastic and highly committed students and staff. I
have very fond memories of the weekly assemblies in the
Monash lecture theatre and of the wonderful slides shows
from Ms Cilia and Mr Pegram capturing students highly
engaged in our weekly activities and events.
I have thoroughly enjoyed working with students, staff
and parents. As a passionate educator, I have been
particularly moved by observing students grow and
develop and passing on the Nossal culture to the younger
students, ensuring that the next generation uphold the
Nossalonian spirit.
As the development, refinement and improvement of
Nossal continues, Nossal will strengthen its place on
the world stage as a shining example of a 21st Century
learning community.
Although I will miss Nossal greatly, I am looking forward
to the challenges and I am excited by the wonderful
opportunities that exist as Principal of Mt. Alexander
College.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr Page
and Dr Meath for the wonderful opportunity to join them
in building and creating Nossal and for their continued
support and encouragement. Thank you also to Ms Harrap
and Ms Shute for their assistance.
Thank you to our wonderful parents who I have worked
with and who have supported me throughout my time at
Nossal.
To all students I say thank you and best wishes! Aim high,
be kind to yourself as well as others. Remember to be the
best that you can be and be proud of that. Follow your
passion and if you are truly determined, despite setbacks
you will achieve your goals. I said many years ago that you
do not need a badge to be a leader. Others will look to you
as a role model so always lead by example. I look forward
to meeting you all sometime in the future.
Best wishes
Wayne Haworth

House Athletics Carnival
The House Athletics results were:
Garuda 1729
Griffin 1713
Phoenix 1502
Pegasus 1380
It was a fantastic day filled with friendly competition
and house spirit. Despite the rain at the end of the day,
students showed great enthusiasm and still finished every
event. The highlight of the day was just before the relays,
watching all of the marshalling staff leading the students
in the Nutbush dance, while waiting in the rain.
Thank you to everyone who helped run an event on the
day and well done to all of the competitors. The chants
at the end of the day made an amazing atmosphere. The
individual champions will be announced at the start of
next term and awarded their medals at an assembly. Well
done Garuda!

In an impressively close final (Gleneagles 6 – Nossal

Nossal High School Special Event
Free for Nossal Parents
Are Our Best Intentions in the Best Interests of our Children?
As parents we all want what’s best for our children. But what if what we’re doing is actually holding our
children back? What if our very best intentions aren’t necessarily in the best interests for our offspring?
In this talk, Dan Haesler will explore parenting strategies that will help you to help your child create the
necessary mindset and skillset for life in the 21st Century.
