This Friday – Legacy Cup Event – Beach Games (aka Iron TEAM event):

Students will not be swimming in the surf but one of the activities involves students going into the inlet/lake. It is a normal school day until sport time. Students will need to:
- wear their house shirt
- wear togs underneath
- bring a towel, hat and water bottle
Islander Fundraiser – Tuesday 11 September
Students can wear Islander clothing and donate a gold coin towards the worthwhile cause of our Fiji mission trip. The College uniform policy for casual dress applies for this event.
Year 7 and 8 Student-Led Conferences – Tuesday 11 September
Parents of Year 7 and 8 children can meet with the Pastoral Care teacher to discuss how their child’s general progress at school has been going. A recent article I read on goal setting made the point that it’s not setting the big goals that makes the difference but rather the habit-forming that occurs around the goal setting. When there is consistent long-term follow-up it results in the reward of reaching achievable goals.
The conferences will begin at 1:30pm in the afternoon. Please remember that your child needs to be in attendance.
Bookings can be made at www.schoolinterviews.com.au using the code tn3ev. This will close on Tuesday 11 September at 9am.
Presentation Night – Tuesday evening 6 November
Compulsory attendance for all Middle School students. Parents are cordially invited to share in this evening.
This is an evening of celebration for our school, it is an opportunity to enjoy a few special musical items, to acknowledge all the various aspects of your child’s school year through the presentation of short clips, along with those students who will receive Academic, Diligence or GREAT awards. There are 20 awards given from each cohort. The evening runs from 6:30pm – 9:00pm. Middle and Senior school share this event.
Congratulations to a large number of students who received awards and certificates at our recent Middle School Assembly.
