Final week of Term 1
It has been a busy week, albeit a final one for the term. The student assessment load has been heavy and they have triumphed and earned a rest! It is true that some subjects have tasks due early in Term 2, although with our four weeks of term time required as notice, well organised students can still get a decent break from the rigours of learning. We enjoyed a wonderful Easter service on Tuesday, the Year 10/11 group departed for China and students represented the school at the Zone Swimming carnival. I extend my sincere thanks to all staff, students and parents for their collective hard work and endeavour to make this learning environment the best it can be for all students, no matter what their story is. It is indeed a privilege to lead such an amazing group of people!
Parent Teacher Night
Thank you to staff and families for embracing the first parent teacher night, but remember there are two further events early next term. Staff on the China Trip are available for both nights next term. These are always fruitful and constructive events and further meetings are sometimes requested if matters were not resolved or fully explored in the 5 minute meeting time itself. We are always available for follow up meetings for parents as required, and meetings may be made either through the Senior School Office or with the staff member directly.
Portal for Parents
It is an exciting time for parents as we launch the Portal, and it is clear that many parents have already explored it and are using it regularly. Information that was previously on the website is gradually being moved to the portal, so soon the website will be targeted at external visitors, not current students and parents. This is a time of transition for all parents, and you are encouraged to use the search function of the portal to hopefully find what you are looking for!! Contact the school if you are experiencing difficulty.
