We were delighted to welcome our newest Bishop Tyrrell students to the Kindergarten orientation recently. After a quick goodbye to their parents at the gate, our young visitors happily joined in with new friends to enjoy an afternoon of fun together. The visit was exciting for all involved.

While at the other end of the school, new leadership roles have been introduced for 2021. A key initiative for next year is the addition of two new pastoral roles for the secondary school, in addition to the Heads of House positions.

We are pleased to announce that the Head of Years 7 – 9 will be Mr Brian Bull and the Head of Years 10-12 will be Mr Mitch Cummings. We congratulate these experienced educators on their appointment to these new roles which will support students each day. Their responsibilities will include day to day supervision and the implementation of the pastoral care and well-being program across all year levels. I’m sure they will be in touch with parents as soon as the new year begins.

In addition, we have appointed new Heads of House from 2021 for a three-year term. These Heads of House will be integral in continuing to grow the spirit and culture in our Secondary School.
Currey House – Lani Grey
Darcy House – Michelle Yates
Fletcher House – Jacqui Currey
Thomas House – Victoria Pearse

End of Year Events
Following on from our successful online Valedictory Assembly for Year 12 students in September, we will be hosting end of year events for students and staff and the good news is that families can be involved online. At the Valedictory event we were able to bring families up on screen as students received awards, which added a special touch to the event.

Please note the times for the events in which you can participate in your diary. Further details regarding the online links will be available.
