Principal's Message

The student leaders, both primary and secondary, were commissioned at separate assemblies. This is when we officially acknowledge the students who have been elected or appointed to formal school leadership roles. It is also the occasion for the staff and student body to accept them as their leaders and agree to support and encourage them.

Our Year 6 cohort and the Year 12 students were also acknowledged as leaders in the school; they are the role models for younger students and can use their gifts and abilities to make our school community stronger. It has been a joy to have our new Chaplain, Mrs Monique Riviere-Pendle playing a major role on both of these occasions.

Last Wednesday we celebrated our high academic achievers of 2016. An assembly, attended by parents, celebrate the achievement of students who have had academic success. Such success is rarely achieved without hard work, and we congratulate students who gained award badges. As the year moves forward we will recognise students’ achievement in other areas – The Arts, Sport, Service and Endeavour.

We welcomed our Year 7 parents last Tuesday evening, with an introductory presentation of our new Learning Management System, SEQTA, and how it will work with the student and parent portals. SEQTA will enable better communication of student course work, assessment, homework and end of semester reporting. Parents then had an opportunity to meet their child’s Pastoral Care Mentor.
