FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Spring, Milestones and Graduation
by Mr Tony Kent
Do you get the sense that spring is in the air!? Here at school the blossoms are coming out, the grass is starting to grow again and, most importantly, there is a spring in the step (excuse the pun) of students and staff alike.
Whenever I manage to escape the confines of my office and get out and about around the school – it feels good. There is something about this time of year that makes us all feel a little more positive about life, particularly after the months of winter chills. Students have the option from Monday to transition back to Summer Uniform, which I am sure many will embrace, assuming this warmer weather is here to stay.
With just two weeks of the term left, there are a few significant milestones coming up, particularly for our senior students.
- Year 11 are currently sitting their final exams, before commencing the important HSC year that commences from Term 4. In the last week of this term they also have their Year 11 Camp – which is designed to provide them with a significant rite of passage into their final year of schooling.
- Our Year 12’s are in the final phase of revision in class, before their HSC exams, which also commence at the start of next term. Their graduation service will take place on Thursday, September 27 at 1:00pm in the Sport Centre.
Hoping that all is well for you, our school community, and that you enjoy this newsletter.
