From the Head of Primary - Week 9, Term 2 2018


Exploring beyond the boundaries of Loving Life Together

As the second term comes to an end, we can all take pride in our students’ ability to work and connect with each other, their teachers and the community in general.  This term, Loving Life Together has allowed our students to create within themselves, a resilience that enables them to confidently explore and create new and exciting futures. This is without doubt the fundamental drive in the attainment of success and achievement, and during this first semester, the students of the Primary Campus have operated with composure, self-assurance and aptitude.  There is no doubt, our theme continues to inspire us all!

I wish all families a well-earned break from the routine of the College day over the next three weeks and I hope encourage everyone returns in Term 3, ready to continue exploring our theme of “Loving Life Together”.


Athletics Carnival

Congratulations to all our wonderful athletes from Year 3 – Year 6 who ran, jumped and threw with enthusiasm and great heart yesterday.  Every student did their best and relished the opportunity to be a part of their particular House group.  Lane House won the carnival and Morris House took out the highly coveted Duck Trophy for their amazing cheering!  Congratulations to Mrs McLauchlan and the HPE staff who organised an excellent event!
