It has been a busy start to the school year. School photos have been completed, our year 7 and year 12 students got to know each better at their orientation camps and our annual house swimming carnival was held at MSAC. Well done to all those staff involved in the organisation of these events.
Congratulations to Grant House and Mr Varney for their convincing win at the Swimming Sports. Mr Ward assures me that it was the groundwork he laid in his years as head of House that is now bearing fruit.
Highlights is emailed via Compass to all families once every two weeks. We rely on the newsletter to be an important point of communication between school and home. The newsletter will be sent out via Compass and an alert is emailed to parents; and only posted to those who do not have access to an email address. It is vital that the College has an updated email address for each family. New or updated email details can be forwarded to the College at firstname.lastname@example.org
Copies of the newsletter are available for families to collect at the front office and sub school offices. The newsletter is archived on the school intranet and is also emailed to all staff and students via their school email address.
