From the window with a view - week 4, term 4 2017

A Window with a View

The school was certainly quieter this week. Year 8 were on camp, Year 10 were sitting exams, the final HSC exams were taken, and we held pupil free days for high school. We have been preparing for the change in academic years in Week 4 and are now ready to welcome our high school students into their new years on Monday, when Year 7 becomes Year 8, and so on.

Our new Year 11 will have sessions specifically on how the Pathways system works, and complete their required module on ‘All My Own Work'. They will be joined by Year 12 on Tuesday. The senior Year 12 students will share their experiences of Year 11, there will be sessions on working through challenges, as well as games, picnics, and taster classes in the new subjects. Then formal classes will commence the following week.

We welcome Ian Curtois to our staff as he commences teaching Biology to Years 11 and 12.

On Saturday evening, many of us attended a fundraiser for Joel in Year 7. Organised by The Mountains Rotary Clubs, ‘Transport for Joel’ was an impressive drive. The major event was held at Katoomba Golf Club on Saturday night and the venue was packed with Rotarians, local businesses, family friends, Korowal students, parents and staff. The fundraising goal was achieved, so the Harts will soon have a family vehicle fitted with wheelchair accessibility. This is a massive achievement from the Mountains community, yet again.

We have many events coming up and possibly questions you would like answered, so we are hoping you can stop by for a cuppa and a chat. Hopefully the weather will begin to clear to support our ‘cuppa under the tree’ on Thursday morning, from 9.15am. After this initial session, we would like to hold this twice a week until the end of term. Everybody is welcome!

It really is the type of day you just want to stay in pyjamas, so I hope you are having a relaxing weekend.

Until next time,


Joel Hart
