The excursions and camp of Week 3 have brought new experiences to many students across the primary and high school. There were physical challenges with soccer and camp, and emotional confrontations with the Jewish Holocaust Museum. We thank the students for stepping up to these challenges and their teachers for supporting them. It is imperative that we enable the students to move out of the familiar and experience themselves in the unfamiliar, to development the skills to cope with change and challenge.
Welcome back to Term 3. We hope that you have had a relaxing time together over this Winter break.
As the school day was drawing to a close on Friday, reports of snow falling in the upper Mountains were coming through. Thankfully all returned home safely to enjoy the soft crunch underfoot. The children travelling home to Leura and Katoomba were very excited on our last day of Term 2.
As we waved Week 8 goodbye we escaped the forecast storm on Friday afternoon. With only one week left before the holidays, we appear to be very busy. What a colourful week we had!
With two further weeks until the end of Term 2, this long weekend is a welcomed resting period. What a pleasant change to routine it was to sit and share a cuppa under the tree on Friday morning. We will continue to hold this for the two remaining Fridays of this term so if you are dropping your children off at school and have a spare 15 minutes, please stop by. The spaces for connecting are sometimes hard to place within our busy schedules.
The last time I wrote to you I was embarking on 5 weeks leave in Europe, and how quickly it flew. My time away provided opportunity for relaxation, cultural enrichment, fun, and objectivity on life and also on Korowal.
We are now over half way through the term and it has been as busy a week as ever.
I am sitting here on Saturday morning looking out of my window at the smoke-enhanced view of the beautiful Japanese maple tree, which was so lovingly mulched yesterday. Mark (Thomas) was telling me that this tree is an offspring of the original tree that was planted in 1908, which makes taking care of it especially satisfying. The primary school children, with a few high school students, and a fabulous crew of parents, also mulched the prunus tree in front of the Primary School entrance. A joyful and productive time was had by all.
