Congratulations to all Year 3 students on their leadership of this week’s Sustainability Pop-Up. The passion demonstrated in their ‘Ted style’ talks, along with the research that had gone into these, was most impressive. This whole event was another wonderful example of students leading the way in prodding us all to heighten our awareness and consider our actions with respect to a wide range of environmental sustainability issues.

Congratulations also this week to the Year 5 choir who represented the College proudly with a wonderful singing performance at Singfest 2019. The choir sang ‘Hold Back the River’ in their single school item, and then were part of the massed choir of 650 Primary students from eight local schools for a further 6 items. A packed Albert Hall enjoyed a fantastic night of choral singing.

All Year 4 students shared three short drama pieces with a Junior School audience to conclude their Term 3 Ignite@Elphin project on ‘What makes a production?’ The energy, passion and teamwork complemented some quality public speaking and acting skills. Watch the short video below –

The enthusiasm for learning demonstrated through these activities is indicative of so many other experiences for students right across the Campus in Term 3.

Best wishes to all students and families for a well-earned holiday break as we all take the opportunity to reflect on progress and to re-set learning goals for the new term ahead.
