It has been a very positive start to the term. Students and staff have returned energised and ready to tackle a great term of learning. The start of term assembly allowed us to commemorate ANZAC day with a very moving service. One of our talented instrumental students, Julia Speranza, played the last post, as each House Captain laid a wreath in their House Colour under the flag posts at the front of the College. We were privileged to hear from Jacqueline Dinan, class of 1987, who shared with us stories from her book capturing the recollections of women who made contributions to the war effort during World War 2. Members of the Student Executive also spoke about the various activities and events we have to look forward to this term, and encouraged students to participate and contribute to community spirit.
Thank you for your understanding as we continue to face teacher shortages. We will do our best to support a consistent learning program for those classes where Casual Relief Teachers will be conducting lessons.
Generation Donation to the College
It was a great surprise to open what appeared to be an ordinary piece of mail and find a generous anonymous donation to the College, acknowledging the great work that is happening here on behalf of the young people in our care. I would like to express my gratitude to the anonymous donor. The money will support the upgrade of furniture in the Slater Building.
