Two weeks into the new school year and Middle School students are already immersed in Round Square. Our Year 6 students have just returned from Narawantapu National Park. They engaged in various activities that challenged their thinking around environmental issues. These activities included wilderness appreciation, understanding human impact on the environment, understating issues affecting specific wildlife species and what is being done to help them, and finally developing the social and emotional skills to ensure success for the year ahead.

In addition to the Year 6 camp, Year 7 and 8 students have been given the opportunity to apply for leadership positions relating to the Round Square IDEALS. Year 8 students have submitted applications for going on exchange and Round Square conferences taking place in April, and finally, Fred French and Migrant Resource Centre visits will be commencing next week.

I look forward to keeping you posted on events as they unfold throughout the year.
