Head of Middle School

As we approach the end of another school year, I want to express my gratitude for your support. Your involvement, encouragement and commitment to your child's education have truly made a significant impact on our school community.

I am grateful for the partnership we have built together, fostering a positive and nurturing environment for our students to learn and grow. Your active participation in school events, your dedication to your child's academic journey, and your collaboration with the Junior School staff have all contributed to the success of this school year.

As we embrace the festive season, I wish you and your families a Christmas filled with warmth and cherished moments. May this holiday season bring us peace and happiness, surrounded by the love of family and friends.

Thank you once again for your continuous support over the last ten years.

Wishing you a safe and happy Christmas!

Last Day Farewells

Today Junior School held a special final assembly to farewell and 'see you soon' some of our wonderful staff. Those applauded were Karen Faulwetter who is leaving our school, plus a few staff going on maternity, special and long service leave. The students made some heart felt speeches about their teachers and friends who are leaving the school.

Sambell House was announced the winner of the Junior School House Cup, to much applause!

To round off the assembly, Mr Arceo and the Year 4s were given a guard of honour as they moved from the Junior School to Middle School.

Junior School End of Year Celebration

The Junior School Celebration was held on Wednesday last week. The evening was a fitting end to the school year as the success of all students was celebrated. Junior School students were presented with a certificate of achievement for completing a wonderful year of learning and improvement. The students demonstrated their talents with singing and music performances onstage. The highlight was the funny, Australian inspired song 'Twelve Days of Christmas".

In his final speech as Head of Junior School, Mr Arceo shared some wisdom, "To the Junior School students, my message to you is to Dream Big! Have no limits and believe in yourself and your abilities. Follow your passions and interests, have an open mind. Your goals will change as you change and get older. Remember to work hard and stay dedicated to your goals. There will be setbacks and challenges so look at these as learning opportunities. Try to be kind, fair, speak up and be happy and celebrate others’ success."
