THE SCHOOL SITE
Plans have been drawn-up for landscaping the area between the Dempster Building and McVay House and these will be discussed at the meeting of the Parents and Friends next week. The aim will be to involve the whole School community in the construction and planting once we have agreed the final design.
As part of our leadership training all Year 11 students will serve as Pro-Prefects for the first five weeks of the term, and will fulfil a variety of roles to allow the School to see them in action, demonstrating their capacities in the areas of leadership and teamwork.
Six students from Year 9 reached the final of our Mince Masters competition after a series of preliminary rounds. In the final round students had to design and prepare a meal for two people that is in-line with the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating, using 100g of mince (chicken, beef, lamb or pork) and a selection of the other ingredients provided.
Eight students from the Year 11 Outdoor Education class are in the midst of the gruelling Cape-to-Cape walk from Cape Naturaliste. They began gently with a spot of gentle caving before embarking on their trek carrying full packs with all they need for their hike.

Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcomes have been the order of the day recently: we welcomed all students and staff back to School after the break; we welcomed four new students to the School; and we welcomed our Japanese exchange students for their ten day stay here.

Students returned refreshed from the vacation and buoyed by the news of the remarkable and on-going recovery of one of our Year 12 students who had been involved in a serious accident the previous term. The term ahead promises to be a busy one with much activity around sport and drama as we prepare for Country Week and our School Production.
Young people are the future of our community and we expect that they should be prepared for life but in a way that avoids subsuming them under a tyranny of testing just to pass examinations. Every young person has a jewel of talent within them and it is our role to ensure that this is discovered and polished to full brightness so that he or she might achieve in ways undreamt of: we really are a community where genuine education takes place.
