Dear Parents and Carers


This week our students have not skipped a beat. There have been dance practises for Celebration, farm visits and various cocurricular activities. The Learning Habits of Creativity is already being grown and celebrated in each of the stages. Perhaps you could ask your child how they have shown creativity this week?


End of Year Awards Services

As the end of the year approaches, we take time to look back and celebrate achievement and growth of our students in many different areas. This year the junior school students will be recognised during an Awards Assembly, Sports Award evening, CAPA Soiree and Celebration. Please see the letter attached outlining the awards that will be presented at each of the events. If your child is receiving and award at any of these events, you will receive an email alerting you to this.

Parent Presentation - Thursday 12 October

Understanding the Adolescent Brain & Mental Health Parent Session 

We have invited our local Ed-LinQ psychologist to facilitate a Parent & Tween/Teen session about the adolescent brain, and signs to watch for that might indicate your child requires further support. 
We’d now like to extend this invitation to our teens/tweens. This is a great opportunity for them to learn more about their brain, and start healthy conversations about adolescent mental health and well-being within our families. 


Thursday 12 Oct @ 6pm - Carbrook Campus

If you require child minding, there will be a 'G' rated supervised movie screening.
