Welcome to Term 2

Week 1 has seen learning programs across the Elphin Campus hit the ground running! For Early Learning to Year 5 students both new and returning, the insatiable thirst for learning and for interactions with peers demonstrated this week bodes well for a great Term ahead.

The student Term started with a P-5 LIVE@Elphin at which we welcomed new students and the College’s new Deputy Principal Ben Marsland to our learning community. Prep and Early Learning Erina classes have launched into their Bush Learning programs this week, conneXions features a book display on ‘Creators of Change’ to inspire thinkers and readers of all ages to want to make a difference, 81 students from Years 2-5 embarked on training sessions for the Futsal Tournament to be held 25 May and House meetings on Friday focused on welcoming new students into House teams as well as rekindling peer support and unity across age groups. This Saturday a large group of runners from across the Junior School will commence the 2021 Inter-School Cross Country series at Tailrace Park.

Alongside core classroom programs, all these experiences – and more –  have set the scene for a really engaging and inspirational Term’s learning ahead.

Mothers’ Day Event

Please join us for a Mothers' Day Afternoon Tea

The College’s annual Mothers’ Day Afternoon Tea is an opportunity for mothers’ and female figures in students’ lives to come together to celebrate this special time. This event is from 2.00-3.30pm under the Oaks and in Laneway@Elphin on the Elphin Campus on Friday 7 May. We look forward to welcoming families for afternoon tea and to enjoy some student entertainment.

Winter Uniforms

Keeping warm and dry are important aspects of the winter uniform for young students. All students should have warm uniform tops as well as school raincoats or Japaras with them daily this Term. Each day brings cross-campus movement for classes and other activities and the end of the day always has time outside waiting for pickups or buses.
