Dear Parents and Caregivers,

Languages Week and NAPLAN testing have made Week 4 of term very busy and School Photos on Friday just added to the complexity. Our Parents and Friends Association have been active in organising a number of events for this term, commencing with High Tea this Sunday (we will be praying for some fine weather). On Saturday 10th June they have organised a Quiz Night – so I encourage as many families as possible to support the work of the P&F – Quiz Nights are always fun events and a professional quiz master has been engaged to ensure a fair range of questions for all ages and backgrounds.

With only one week to go before the commencement of Year 11 and 12 examinations, our senior students should be well into their study and revision schedules so that they maximise their results in these important exams. Please refer to the link below under Study Skills Handbook. Under normal circumstances we would be commencing the nomination process next week for our 2017/2018 student leaders. However, we feel that the tenure of our senior leaders should conclude at the end of Term 3 and commence at the start of Term 4 each year – rather than the immediate past practice of their tenure concluding at the end of Term 2. Given formal lessons for many Year 12 students conclude at the end of Term 3, this seems a logical time for them to be handing over to the new leaders from Year 11.

Regards and God Bless,

John Aldous

Acting Principal
