A Term of many highlights!

What a term of learning highlights!  So many connections and learning memories created and celebrated across the campus and beyond.  From the amazing investigations into Science Week with a theme of ‘Innovation’ to Book Week, exploring, reading and growing.  Of course the learning celebrations recently with Student Led Conferences, Bush Learning Programs, Farm visits, excursions to emergency services, Buddy Class experiences, visiting the QVMAG, the inaugural ‘Big Sing’ and the House Athletics Carnival this week.  These are just some of the highlights of a fantastic Term.  These opportunities, and many more, enable the Junior School the opportunity to create learning connections and to find passion in our world of learning.  To the creative, curious and committed staff, families, volunteers and coaches, thank you for ensuring that these opportunities are provided and instil a sense of inspiration in our community.

I wish all students, staff and families a wonderful Term Three break.  Stay safe and enjoy time with family and friends. I look forward to a wonderful Term Four, with many opportunities for students to lead learning celebrations.

Junior School Inter-House Athletics

Our wonderful College community was on show at the Junior School Iner-House Athletics Carnival on Wednesday at St Leonard’s Athletics Centre.

From throwing to running events, novelties, tug of war and relays, students participated enthusiastically across a range of events earning valuable points for their house.  House colours were proudly worn with chants enthusiastically being sung all day long.

Thank you to the many spectators who attended and contributed to the atmosphere.

Congratulations to Hamish Woolley (Year 4) who equalled the Year 4 Boys High Jump record with an impressive jump of 1.33cm.

Final placings were Fox House first, Dean House second, Nance House third and Briggs House fourth.
