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.
As we farewell Week 3 of Term 2, the high school is preparing for the academic year changeover. In Week 4, the Year 10 students will sit their exams, Year 8 attend camp, and Years 9 and 7 complete their subjects in readiness for the new year. Thursday and Friday will be pupil free days for Years 7-10 as the staff sign off on the 2017 academic programs and prepare 2017-18. Then on Monday, 8th November, at the start of Week 5, all of the classes go up a year. Year 10 begin preparations for Year 11 senior study programs before formally commencing their new subjects in Week 6, with the new Year 12. There is no slowing down for us this term!
Week two of Term 4 has been a delightful week, with happy faces, lots of laughter and even some rain! The HSC exams are off to a good start, and we welcome Cath Walker back as our Presiding Officer for the second year running.

Welcome back to Term 4, where we will be involved in many interesting events. Our new staff members, Sarah Farrell Whelan and Jason Carthew, have arrived and are assessing the schools needs as well as introducing themselves to students and parents. Focussing on wellbeing support, Sarah has been visiting primary classes to check in, chatting about the good things at Korowal, the things that ‘fill your bucket’, as well as asking for suggestions of things that may not be here but which could fill the bucket further. Similar conversations will be held with the students in high school. Sarah will be consulting with parents and staff also. Jason has some of Joachim’s previous position but also expands into assessing our administration systems, website, communications systems, multi-media, maker space and mandatory technology options. This is a big portfolio and we are working through priorities at present.
