Head of Junior School
If you’ve ever holidayed by tent or caravan on the south coast of NSW you can almost guarantee a few wet days. If there’s no internet or TV then out come the cards, board games and sketch pads pretty quickly, and soon there’s a monopoly champion, or a Line Up 4 wizard, or a Charades natural. Recess and Lunch at the moment for Junior School looks a little like a wet camping holiday … lots of conversations, creative play and building friendships. This is the ‘incidental curriculum’, but also an outcome of the way our College sees learning – where alliances build a culture of honesty, respect and inclusiveness and attitudes of engagement and responsibility are fostered.
Yes, the day we see blue sky and dry playing spaces will be celebrated. For us in the wet days, there’s just as much to count as a blessing and a testimony to our culture of excellence.
