Secondary – Pastoral

It is fantastic to have all our students back in the classrooms and although some really enjoyed the home learning, which allowed for more sleep and constant access to the fridge, I’m sure seeing their friends in real life is better than on the screen. We still have restrictions in place but staff will do what they can to make coming to school fun and enjoyable.

This week we recognise Reconciliation Week where we are encouraged to build and maintain our relationships with indigenous Australians.  This is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures and achievements and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.  Over the next week, Secondary students will be given the opportunity to participate in a variety of indigenous cultural experiences and activities.  Our Primary and Secondary Captains did a magnificent job in creating their own Acknowledgement of Country video earlier this week which has now been shared on social media.   You can watch the video on the College Facebook page via this link.

Also, a friendly reminder that we are now in our winter uniform which means students need to wear their blazer to and from school.

If students are not able to wear the correct uniform on a particular day, please send a note explaining the reason.  It is also important for the boys to read the guidelines for hair length and style to ensure they are meeting the standard set by the College.
