From the Junior School


26 June, 2020


End of Term

What a term it has been! Thank you once again to all members of the College community for your fantastic support of each other and particularly of student learning and wellbeing through both Term 2- Part 1 and Term 2- Part 2.

All classes and After School Care finish today for the three-week break. The Vacation Care program commences on Monday and runs throughout this period and details of this can be found online. All Junior School classes and Before and After School resume on Tuesday 21 July. The Junior School office is closed through the break, but the College office at the Penquite Campus is open during normal business hours as usual and the Junior School can be contacted via this office if needed.

Planning for the next stages of the ‘Return to School’ continues next week and all College families will be updated on Term 3 arrangements during the break. While still dependent on Government advice, at this stage we are all anticipating the return of more aspects of broader school programs and activities from late July.

House cross-country, Prep 100 Days of School celebration, early years Bush Learning, choirs, Year 4 Education Outdoors program, Book Week, Science Week and inter-school sport rosters, are among the activities that we are looking forward to as the calendar moves back to a more familiar look.

This break will no doubt be spent close to home for most of us. All students are encouraged to engage in active outdoor experiences as much as possible, as well as to find opportunities to enjoy some good books and perhaps family board games or similar. For those searching for ideas, ‘The Campus’ under the community section of the College website has a wide range of great activities that might offer a starting point for things to do.

Best wishes for an enjoyable family time over the school holiday break.

Mid-Year Reports

Mid-Year School Reports for Prep to Year 5 students will be available early next week. All families will receive advice as soon as these are released. Where follow-up discussion to these are needed there will be opportunities for this early in Term 3.

2021 Enrolments

Current College families considering enrolment for younger family members are reminded of the need to act ‘sooner rather than later’ in making a formal application for enrolment. This is particularly important for Early Learning where places and attendance options always become limited as we move into the latter part of the year. All enrolment applications are processed in order of receipt.
