Dear Parents/Caregivers
What a truly special week we had last week. 8 classes away on Education Outside the Classroom activities. The value
of these experiences are immense and to see students tackling activities with such enthusiasm and getting outside their
comfort zones was amazing. The feedback from tutors at the camps was most complimentary towards our students. At
MERC for example they could not get over the exceptional behaviour and the way our students took to the water and
all gave every activity a go! My thanks to our Teachers for the countless hours that go into organizing these events. To
the parents who stay overnight at camps (many giving up valuable work leave time) and to those who help in so many
ways for example with transport, my thanks. Our students are very fortunate to be surrounded by such a generous
community. See attached photo montages of MERC.
Special congratulations to our GOLD Care Award winners: Traynor Buckton, Celia Forsberg, Meredith Cree,
Matthew Skepper, Tomas Matteucci, Lauren Pomfrett, Emily Robinson, Jacob Plaziuk, Sara Buxton, Kiki

if they have to. Parents can help immensely by not
waiting on the opposite side to the stop.

Night. At this evening we farewell our Year 8 students,

Pool Keys
These will be available for sale to families of the
school for use of the pool over summer. They cost
$100.00 with a $20.00 refund once the key is returned
at the end of summer. Parents must purchase these
from the School Office as there is an agreement form
to be completed. Students will not be given these
forms or keys to take home. Keys will be on sale from

swimming until today. Keys will not be available for
sale after Wednesday December 14th.
