Principal's Update: 13th September 2021

It was wonderful to see so many families and members of staff at the Family Trivia Night last week. It certainly provided us with be an opportunity to do something together as a School Community.

Our Secondary Students had a special RUOK? Assembly last week. Congratulations to our Secondary Student Leaders for their preparation of this Assembly.

Well what a different term we have all experienced! Well done to everyone for embracing the challenges of everyday life and retaining a positive outlook during this pandemic. There have certainly been many opportunities each day for us all to develop our ‘COVID skill set’ of patience, kindness to others, flexibility, commitment, reliability and generosity of thoughts and actions.

Some of the highlights of this term have been seeing so many of our students, staff and family members at our Assemblies every Monday. Our School Captains and student leaders have certainly risen to the challenge of ‘talking live’ via Webex and have assisted in keeping everyone in our school community connected with each other. Another highlight has been seeing all the beautiful photos of home learning and Father’s Day breakfast celebrations parents have submitted for our 2021 Yearbook.

As I walked around the school last week it was obvious that the warmer weather has arrived – the beautiful trees in our courtyard are in full blossom and there are daffodils and other spring flowers beginning to appear in the school gardens. Our caretaker has been very busy caring for our buildings and grounds.

At this stage we are unsure of the plan for Term Four. There will be more information for families distributed during the holidays. Please continue to check your emails during the holidays.

Happy holidays, stay healthy and my very best wishes to you all.
