Head of Junior School

Next week our Year 5 students will have the opportunity to write a nomination for the Junior School leadership team in 2021. I am always impressed by the calibre of submission and the willingness of our students to have a go, stand for something they believe in and serve their school. While not every student will gain an official role, all are leaders of some kind, for all have influence and an opportunity to make a difference. The results will be announced at the end of the year.

We do have some upcoming events to look forward to, even in these restricted times. We have a girls and boys football (soccer) game with Shell Cove Public School, and our popular Life Education program is starting on Monday 16 November. Next Monday is our second and final Swimgym program for Stage 1 – much anticipated and enjoyed by our younger students.

Orientation for new students is planned for next Friday 13 November, and there are many joining the Junior School in 2021, with this growth comes diversity and exciting opportunities. While parents are not included in this year’s program at school there will be videos and a zoom catch up. All our current students will be involved in the morning program which will include a taste of the next Stage, or a new group of students to welcome into a current Stage.
