Term 1 Recap Video

That's a wrap on Term 1 and what a successful beginning to the 2021 academic year our students have had! 

Term 1 at John Paul College was packed full of year level activities, whole school events and collaborative learning. Students embraced being back onsite after a tumultuous year in 2020, with the exception of a brief five-day lockdown in Melbourne, which saw students return to online learning for three days. 

 

 
 
The first days of Term 1 saw many familiar smiles and waves as students strolled through the school gates, eager to get stuck into another academic year at the College. The College also welcomed our 2021 Year 7 cohort and their families to the John Paul College community, along with a number of other new students from other year levels. 

Both our Years 7 and 8 cohorts participated in Activities Weeks, where they shared in relationship building activities with their classmates and strengthened the bonds shared amongst their year levels.  

We gathered as a College for several whole school events including the Swimming Carnivals and Mission Action Day, and collectively celebrated and raised awareness for International Women's Day and Harmony Week. 

In March we held an Open Day, where the College invited a number of prospective families onsite to discover what makes JPC a place to learn, grow and thrive, and explore our expansive grounds and state of the art facilities. 

The College looks forward to what Term 2 may bring and remain excited as ever for the year ahead.
