Comment from the Principal – 13th October 2017

Dear Parents and Carers,

We finish Week 1 of the so-called summer term with, at last, some indication that weather appropriate to the season is upon us. Let us hope that it lasts!

Year 12

I am sure that the Year 12 students sitting mock examinations would prefer that the good weather might have waited but the long summer will soon be upon them.

Dear Parents and Carers,

The term is over and the holidays (or study leave for our ATAR students) have begun. I am sure that, for many, sleep will be a priority to start with but, as we explored in Chapel, I hope, too, that the chance to recreate in a myriad of ways will also be possible.

Dear Parents and Carers,

We enter the final week of term with a successful week upon which to reflect.

Athletics Carnival

Part of the success of the week can be attributed to the athletics carnival which, regrettably, I was unable to attend because of meetings at the Anglican Schools Commission in Perth; however by all accounts it was a good day held in fine weather.

Dear Parents and Carers,

I hope that this will reach you this week: our internet connection failed again on Friday and it has taken Mr Abbott a great deal of time and skill to get us back on-line.
Operation Christmas Child
Happily the internet problems did not stop our Year 11 students from helping pack shoe boxes for this initiative.

Dear Parents and Carers,

The long weekend certainly made the week just past fly-by but I hope that the extra day's leave was restorative for all (as it seems to have been for many to whom I have spoken).

Music

Certainly our musicians (probably around 35% of the student body) needed a bit of time to recharge their depleted reserves of energy after an outstanding Festival.

Dear Parents and Carers,

We approach the long weekend after a week of the most incredible variety in weather conditions, the wind contributing, at times, to ‘lively’ behaviour in some of our students.

Music

Fortunately much of this energy has been transformed into meaningful musical activity and I have enjoyed hearing an abundance of this at the Music Festival.

Dear Parents and Carers,

It has been a week of interesting contrasts in all sorts of respects, not least the weather!
Photographs

The weather payed its part in altering the arrangements for the photographs but, happily, we managed to get the whole-School one taken outdoors.

Dear Parents and Carers,

A slightly delayed comment this week to allow time for reflection after the Family Fun Night and our farewells to our guests from Japan.

Family Fun Night
This was another enjoyable evening of convivial company and entertainment organised by the Parents and Friends Association.

Comment from the Principal – 26th June 2017

Dear Parents and Carers,

Another busy week has gone by and we are now, incredibly it seems, into the final week of term. The School is relatively quiet with about a quarter of the School, and accompanying staff, away on Country Week.

Country Week

We wish our teams – touch-rugby (for the first time), volleyball, basketball, netball and dance – every success in this incredible week of sport and look forward to hearing how they have fared.
