Enjoy the break

How quickly Term 1 has gone; a term that has provided so many opportunities for our students and extended community to show the Scotch Oakburn spirit. I am sure that after so many events, activity and involvements, everyone is looking forward to being able to relax, rejuvenate and spend time with family and friends.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone in the College community for your involvement this term and your on-going support.

Whilst on the topic of community, I’d like to take this opportunity to advertise a number of College events in the year ahead. The Mothers’ Day Morning Tea, Autumn Concert, Annual Dinner, TCE Play and Senior Play, Spring Concert, Fathers’ Day Breakfast, Junior School Soirees, Grandparents’ Days, Spring Cocktail Party and the Middle School Arts Evenings as well as many other smaller events and performances throughout the year provide an opportunity for us to come together to celebrate the learning and achievements of our students as well as enjoy the camaraderie of our community. All of these events provide the opportunity for the involvement of a breadth of student age groups and the bringing together of staff, students, parents and our extended community in a wonderful celebratory atmosphere.

On a different note, students are reminded that the wearing of Winter Uniform begins on the first day of Term 2, Tuesday 30 April. This gives our students two weeks to ensure that their uniform fits properly, that hair is neat and tidy and they are well organised.

I wish everyone a safe and relaxing break over the next few weeks and trust that you will enjoy spending time with loved ones. I look forward to seeing staff and students on Tuesday 30 April, ready for the opportunities that the new term will present.
