So the countdown begins. Only three sleeps until we head off on Year 8 Camp. Thanks to the many parents volunteering to make this camp the challenging and exciting experience it will be for all of our girls. We appreciate you very much!
The Year 8 girls had a day of camp preparation on Tuesday where they learned about first aid, how to put up a tent and many other useful camping skills. We look forward to seeing them in action next week.
The Year 7 and 8 Swimming Carnival was a colourful affair with the girls parading to the pool proudly wearing their House colours. There are no limits to the imagination of our girls when they see an opportunity to dress up and it certainly makes for a really celebratory atmosphere!
Thanks to the parents for helping out with timekeeping. We cannot run these events without your help and our girls just love having you here to enjoy their success.
The House Leaders and Deputy House Leaders introduced themselves at our Middle School Assembly on Wednesday and as well as having all of their House members get up and show us their chants, they told us what their goals were this year for their Houses. The goals all centered around inclusivity, maximum participation, fun and of course being a winning House. The calibre of our House Leaders and Deputies stands us in good stead for 2017.
This assembly was ably led by Isobel Fletcher and Chloe Wallace from 7ELG and the House Leaders of Kelso, Madeline Leigh and her Deputy, Madeline Want did a fine job orchestrating the House chants and introductions of all House Leaders and Deputies.

Head of Middle School
