With the Finish line in sight, keep focused!
The Middle School enjoyed connecting with the Year 12 students during their final week of on-campus learning. The list of ‘lasts’ for our Year 12 students enabled many connections and memories with Middle School students, through Final House Meetings, Vertical Tutor Group Sessions and/or being an audience member to the Final Year 12 Assembly. These cross-campus connections remind us all of the community connection and care within our College. During the week many Year 12 students visited the Middle School to show gratitude to staff and to encourage today’s Middle School community to grab every opportunity. A consistent theme in the reflections from Year 12 students has been around ‘taking every opportunity’; the more you accept, the more connections, memories and learning you enable! To today’s Middle School students and families, our community has so many opportunities to join in, some exciting ones coming up include the Year 8 Peer Leaders assisting with Junior School Education Outdoors Day programs, the Schools Triathlon, Middle School Choir, Band and Ensembles for end of year events just to name a few!
With the 2021 year finish line in sight and rapidly approaching, I encourage all students to use this as an opportunity to stay focused, keep up their learning habits (intensity) and create a positive legacy for 2022. This week, we welcomed all new families ahead of 2022 into the Middle School. The atmosphere and community spirit was memorable, as our new students and families embraced the Inter-House spirit with a series of games and challenges. Looking ahead to Week 6, Friday 19 November, the Middle School Orientation Day for 2022 will provide another opportunity for friendship connections and learning interests to be shared on a day of creating and making through many curriculum pursuits. I am looking forward to seeing how we can continue to #bemore!
