Celebrating…

  • Year 9 Rites of Passage Day on Friday
  • Loads of great assessments – while that may sound strange – a great deal of the assessed work has been fun and of a high quality. From the Bridges and Crash Test cars, the Sunshine Coast Modern style Brochures that the Tourism board would be amazed by to Year 9’s highly entertaining, ‘Story of my Life’ presentations!
  • The Roman Feasts that the Year 7 students enjoyed last week
  • The French Restaurant Excursion
  • The Alternate Week program this past week with many and varied activities from amazing Maths activities, Slum City Challenge (learning about third world countries and our response), Minecraft Challenges, Gingerbread House making, Survivor on the Moon, Bike Riding to Tibrogargan, Random Acts of Kindness opportunities … to name a few.
  • Year 9 Celebration Dinner on Thursday evening. How wonderful to see our Young ladies and gentlemen ready to launch into Senior School. Photos of the night will be available on Friday.

What do I need to know for the start of next year for my child in Middle School?

  • Uniforms, Laptops and texts can be picked up in the Administration Days from January 20 – 22. Please remember to contact the office to book a time for this.
  • Year 7’s start on Monday 25 January
  • Year 8’s and 9’s start on Wednesday 27 January
  • On the first Wednesday, existing students have already organised their lockers for next year so bags can be organised when students arrive. At 8.30am – all Middle School students will move to the church for an Introductory Assembly followed by Pastoral Care Lessons to organise timetables etc. Then into their regular timetabled lessons after 1st break.
  • All other relevant information is on the booklist and attached letter that was sent home a few weeks ago.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you – our parents and wider community members for your involvement and support of all our teachers and staff throughout this year. We consider it a privilege to work with your children.  I would like to encourage you this holidays: to inspire your child to read; limit your child’s screen exposure; and, help your child to organise some great ‘other’ activities. I pray that you have an opportunity to celebrate the birth of our Saviour with your families and children in this season.

Jacqualina Vreeling, Head of Middle School
