Student and School Achievements

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.

Year 11 Student Leadership

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.

Year 9 Masters of Mince

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.

Term 3

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.

Welcome Back to Term 2

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.
