Dr Katherine (Katie) Mack, a theoretical astrophysicist at the University of Melbourne will be taking students on a tour of the universe (and selected cosmic mysteries) in the EC Undercroft today from 9-10. Come with your questions about dark matter, dark energy, black holes, or the ultimate fate of the Universe as we delve into some of cosmology’s most fundamental questions.

June e-news and important update on SMS for attendance

We are trialing a new system with texts (SMS) for attendance for Term 3. We will send you a text before 11am each day to let you know if your son or daughter is not in class. This will allow you to be fully informed of your child’s attendance in classes. We hope that this means we can work together more closely to ensure your son or daughter attends classes.

Please note, that if you wish to respond to the text that we can only receive replies back to that number within 48 hours.

Thank you

Dr Dianne Purnell.
