Miss Hilton wrote: “Congratulations to both the dance group and the Year 8s for representing the College so well as they showcased off our school’s talents. So very proud of Bakani Kombanie and Julian Munyard who won the Sunshine Plaza Breakthru competition on the weekend. It was a tough competition but the boys genuine love of music, their smiles and their ability to connect with the judges and audience gave them that winning edge. The time and effort they have put into rehearsing and preparing for this competition has paid off well.  

Reader’s Cup

Our Year 8’s placed 5th in a very tough competition on the Sunshine Coast last week, just missing out by one point to get into the final round!

Reports

Next term begins on Monday the 18 July and students will receive a hard copy of their reports to take home. Thanks for your patience as we continue to move over to the use of our new database system.

Parent Teacher Conferences Tuesday 26 and Wednesday 27 July

The online booking system will be sent out by email in the first week of term. The Pastoral Care (PC) teachers have worked with their students to assist them in their study habits. As well, they have a good understanding of how they are going. We ask that parents bring their students with them so that they can conference with the PC teacher for the best results in the second semester of schooling. Bookings can also be made with other teachers.

Praying that our Middle School students have a safe and restful mid-year break. Ready to see you all next semester.

Jacqualina Vreeling, Head of Middle School
