    Dear Parents and Caregivers, Vicki Phyland It with excitement that I inform the CJC community that Vicki Phyland our assistant principal, will take up the acting principal role for term 2, at Malvern Central Primary School. Vicki is an experienced assistant principal and this is a wonderful opportunity for her. French LOTE teacher This term we have been trialling a range of French speak-ing teachers to teach children in the composite classes French. I am pleased to announce that we have appointed Louis Bournik Kabengele (preferred name Bournik). We look forward to officially welcoming Bournik to our staff next term. Bruno Devalle French Pedagogical Inspector This week we have had a visit from Bruno Devalle the French Inspector of the AEFE who supervises the Asian Pacific Region. During his visit Bruno has inspected teach-ers in the French Section Elective, provided whole school professional learning for staff, facilitated a Parent Forum, visited Auburn High School and worked with Caulfield Jun-ior College leadership. As pedagogical inspector Bruno has had the opportunity to work in many schools in the Asian Pacific Region and ob-serve how learning and teaching in schools that have a French stream has changed and evolved over the last five years. Bruno has shared some of his experiences with staff and parents. On Tuesday Bruno attended the year 1/2 planning day and observed how teachers work collaboratively to write a unit of inquiry and a literacy and numeracy planner based on skills and concepts for both streams of the school as we move towards one curriculum. Bruno spoke to staff and parents about the French and Victorian Curriculum being 80% the same and that the fo-cus of learning and teaching should be on the learning of skills. The 20% difference in the curriculums can be taught by either teacher in the Binomes, meaning that teachers can teach each others curriculum. For example: in Maths in the French Curriculum, data is introduced in year 3. In the Victorian Curriculum, data is informally introduced in

    Foundation. Bruno spoke to teachers about taking the best of both curriculums and that is it okay to teach more. Therefore teachers in the French Section Elective can teach data such as pictographs in Foundation and teachers in the Binomes can teach aspects of the French Curriculum too. This supports student learning and teach-ers working together, as well as ensuring that learning and teaching is bilingual. Enjoy the break I wish everyone a safe and happy holiday and look for-ward to seeing our students and families when school returns on Monday 11th April.

    tal as part of their Civics and Citizenship education. To assist families in meeting the cost of the excursion the

    Australian Government contributed funding of $30.00 per student under the Parliament and Civics Education

    Rebate program towards those costs. The rebate is paid directly to the school upon completion of the ex-

    Dear School Community.

    We would like to share with you about the generosity and care of one of our students in grade 5, Amelie Bourrat.

    Amelie raised $700 by making cards and selling proceeds from biscuits at her parents - Christina and Thomas, patisserie. She then donated that money to Ardoch Youth Foundation

    to support students experiencing disadvantage with their education.

    What an amazing effort !!
