Principal’s Comment 6th December 2018

Dear Parents and Carers,

The end of another School year, this time our tenth, which has seen many positive elements.

Awards’ Night
The atmosphere in the Civic Centre on Wednesday night really brought so many of these elements to the fore and it was very good to see a packed auditorium for our Awards’ Night.

Principal’s Comment St. Andrew’s Day 2018

Dear Parents and Carers,

Today is St Andrew’s Day – he is the patron saint of Scotland, who was crucified at Patras on an X-shaped cross because he felt himself unworthy of being crucified on the same shape of cross on which Jesus was crucified. One legend has it that the white cross of the flag of Scotland has its origins in this form of crucifixion. We are also, at last we might sigh, on the eve of summer!

Principal’s Comment 23rd November 2018

Dear Parents and Carers,

It has been a busy and entertaining week with student leadership and involvement to the fore.

McDonalds McHappy Day

This involvement and commitment was very evident with our Year 10 students who organised the McHappy Day activities and participated in two, raising $350 from their car wash and face painting.

Principal’s Comment 9th November 2018

Dear Parents and Carers,

The end of another week, with the term rattling along all too quickly towards its finale. Our Year 12 ATAR candidates had their finale today, with the last ATAR exam for them being completed this morning. We look forward to some good results when they are announced on the 17th December.

Principal’s Comment 2nd November 2018

Dear Parents and Carers,

The end of another week and our ATAR candidates are almost half-way through their exams; Years 10 and 11 start their diet next week, with Year 11s on study leave, unless in School for exams (in uniform of course).

Commendations

Hopefully they will be expending the levels of effort shown by the following students who gained commendations recently.

Principal’s Comment 26th October 2018

Dear Parents and Carers,

The Esperance Show got in the way of the customary ‘Comment’ last week but I hope that the gap has been filled, at least in part, by the daily ‘EACS Brekkie Bytes’. There is, however, still much to comment upon, providing something of a smorgasbord of information to provide further nourishment.

Principal’s Comment 12th October 2018

Dear Parents and Carers,

The first week of the summer term has passed with remarkable speed, helped, perhaps, by the relaxed atmosphere engendered by the good weather we have enjoyed. Maybe summer is not far off?

Summer Uniform

Speaking of the seasons, students are expected to now wear summer uniform but, as is customary, there will be the usual three-week transition period when either summer or winter uniform may be worn.

Principal’s Comment 31st August 2018

Dear Parents and Carers,

Another week appears to have disappeared leading to the realisation that there are but three weeks left before the end of the term. Perhaps the level of activity helps to explain the rapid passage of time.

Call to Duty and ADF Visit

The first bit of good news is that the registration inspector, with whom my colleagues and I spoke at the end of last week, were more than satisfied with the documentation that we provided and the conversations we had to support this.
