SFX will be raising money for research into childhood disease by participating in Jeans for Genes Day on 1 August. Students can wear jeans and regular closed toe shoes to school (with their regular school uniform shirt, jumper and jacket) in exchange for a GOLD COIN DONATION. All proceeds from the day will go to Children’s Medical Research Institute. For more information go to the website here.

National Collection of Data for Students with Disability
The Nationally consistent collection of data for Students with Disability is a national initiative coordinated through the Standing Council on School Education and Early Childhood. A nationally consistent approach is a priority to enable accurate information to be collected about the number of Australian school students with disabilities and the adjustments being provided to enable them to access education on the same basis as those students without a disability.
To help all parents understand the data collection process we are holding an information evening, Thursday 26 June, 5.30pm-6.30pm at the College. We will be able to step you through the process and answer any questions that you have. All parents are welcome to attend, not just if your child has been specifically identified. If you have any questions about the 2014 data collection, please contact the Inclusive Education Coordinator: Michaela Vergano on 62581055.
