So the story goes…
A certain private school was faced with a unique problem. A number of girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom. After they put on their lipstick they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints. Every night the maintenance man would remove them and the next day the girls would put them back.
Mention of this was made in the daily notices but without effect. Finally the Principal decided that something had to be done. He called the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance man. He explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the cleaners who had to clean the mirrors every night.
To demonstrate how difficult it was to clean the mirrors, he asked the maintenance man to show the girls just how hard it was to remove the lipstick from the glass. Under careful instructions, the man took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the nearest toilet bowl, and scrubbed at the mirror. There was complete silence in the room.
Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror.
Year 11 Camp
This week the Year 11’s are away on a 5 day camp near Toowoomba. I’m certain the staff on camp will need a great deal of wisdom to deal with the various situations as they arise. Please pray for our staff and students, that God will keep them safe and help them see Him in all His glory through the creation.
Year 12 Exam Block
Thursday, Week 9 is the start of the Year 12 exam block. This time is set aside so that students can focus totally on their studies. Please do not allow your child to be unsupervised in town. Occasionally we receive calls from the community to advise that our students are in town during school hours. Our policy is to return these to school and issue a suitable consequence. The College is providing study options for those who are unable to stay home to work.

A progress report will be emailed to parents at the end of this term. Information will also be given on how to book parent teacher interviews. These are scheduled for Week 2, Wednesday and Thursday of next term
