Dear Parents and Carers,

It has been another wonderful week in the Junior School!

These students have demonstrated commitment to service and exceptional behaviour in their daily school life. Congratulations to the following students who will act in the College Leader role for the remainder of 2023.

Students will have further opportunity to apply for a College Leader position throughout the year, please encourage your child to continue working towards this achievement.

Under 8's Day

Tomorrow we have our annual Under 8s day. Our teachers and staff have been busy preparing exciting activities that we believe will help create a memorable day for your children. It is always a highlight to see our Stage 3 students step in and help with the little ones. I am sure this year will not disappoint.

Athletics Carnival: Stage 2 and 3

On Monday our Stage 2 and 3 students competed in our combined campus Athletics Carnival. Thank you to Mr Ocana, staff and parent volunteers for your support to ensure the events ran smoothly and every child was safe and support to give their best effort. It was exciting to celebrate student achievement at Assembly today, congratulations to all of our age champions.

Musical Update

Can you believe the musical is next week?!
With only a few rehearsals left, we are in the throes of polishing dance moves, scenes and cues for backstage set and prop changes. With a cast of 107 students from Years 2-6 across two campuses, this musical has been no small feat. Its success is testament to the commitment families, the courage and talent of our students, and the team of staff who will stop at nothing to provide an environment where every child can shine and grow. Thank you to all parents who have donated time to help at rehearsals, and costume items and also thank you to our major sponsors of the show.
