Bookings are now open for Year 7 - 10 Parent Teacher Interviews. Interviews will take place on the evening of Tuesday 20th June, between 4pm and 8pm. Please be aware that Sharon Harris is not available for bookings as she will be on leave during this time. Barb Hall is not able to attend interviews on Tuesday but is open for bookings on Wednesday 21st June.
On Friday afternoon, our Years 1 & 2 children and their teachers returned with spring in their steps after an excursion to the Locomotive Museum at Valley Heights. In grown up fashion, they travelled by train and used individual Opal Cards! Simultaneously, and through another window, the high school co-curricular cooking group were highly animated after preparing and eating a very hot green curry. As it was a cold afternoon, many of us had a tinge of envy! However, we managed to keep warm in Week 6 as winter arrived.
As the HSC progresses we traditionally have Winter Holiday Workshops over the three week break. Please find the attached workshop schedule for Year 11 and 12 students.
These are intended to provide focussed attention to essential course work, and immersion for practicals. They are conducted in the first week of the school holidays, coming soon. We accentuate the importance of the students having a holiday in the latter 2 weeks, however three weeks cuts deeply into the time allocations for HSC subjects.
Business Studies will not be holding a workshop as they recently attended a day of immersion.
It is important that all students attend these sessions.

In week 5, and throughout this term, we have been fortunate that our fabulous sports program has not been washed. The sun shone upon us all at the Huff and Puff Gala Day on Tuesday. Whether in primary golf clinic or boxing, cross fit, athletics and skate boarding in high school, the students are being challenged to develop physical skills and thinking routines outside of their regular fields. Kizz has developed a PE program full of variety and fun.
Commencing at the beginning of Semester 2, and continuing until the end of Term 3, Year 9 students will undertake a field study project for one hour per week.
A reminder that the Pathways Information Evening is on Tuesday 30th May from 7pm in G1. We will begin the conversation about requirements for the HSC, how Pathways works and subjects on offer. As there is a focus on subject choices we would encourage you to bring your child along.
We look forward to seeing you there.
