Principal’s Christmas Message 2018

Principal’s Christmas Message 2018

This is a time of year when, despite the blizzard of commercialism, we pause for thought about the meaning of Christmas for us in the benign surroundings of Esperance.

The concept of stables, wise men and angels may be a bit obscure but stars and clear night skies, when the silence thrums, gives us a sense of what Edmund Sears wrote in his poem It Came Upon the Midnight Clear (and put to music as a carol by Arthur Sullivan of Gilbert and Sullivan fame). Indeed the words of this carol convey the real essence of what Christmas is about, even in the 21st Century.

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.

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.

How to talk to your child about bullying

Being bullied is an unnecessary and anxiety-provoking experience. Bullying causes harm not only to the person being bullied, but also has the potential to harm the bully, families and any witnesses as well.
