From the window with a view - week 8, term 1 2017


A Window with A View

In Week 8 our students ran about in the sun wherever and whenever they could. The roof of the hall was lifted as enthusiastic high school students began their rehearsals of The Time Warp, in preparation for the Cabaret next term. This event will run from Thursday 4th May until Saturday evening 6th May for four performances. Tickets are limited and sell out quickly, so avoid disappointment by getting in early. They are now available for purchase at lunch times on the front verandah at School, or through returning the envelopes given to students this week. If your child was absent for this, please stop by our office and collect an envelope.

Our last week of term is looking vibrant with many extraordinary events across the school. This is our chance to consolidate our term, and to come together and have some fun. There is something for everyone in the listings below.

  • Preliminary examinations for Years 11 and 12 are on from Monday through to Thursday. We are impressed with the concerted efforts our students and teachers have made to prepare for these. We trust that our students will conquer this series of challenges, learn more about themselves and how they respond to specific exam conditions, and present us with more questions. All the very best to our seniors!
  • Monday morning: Debating will be running for some high school students, afternoon: Music Scholarships (Yrs 7 and 10, 2018) - Stage 2 of process, evening: KSC or Board meeting plus Parents Japanese classes
