Welcome Back! As always it has been lovely to see all our staff, girls and families again as we commence Term 2. Yesterday I enjoyed hearing the Senior School girls cheer loudly as they participated in their House Athletics Carnival. It was a great day.

​How quickly Term 1 has gone by! Last Friday it was wonderful to join the Junior School girls at their House Athletics Carnival and to observe the high levels of participation and enthusiasm shown by all! Thank you to the staff and parent helpers who facilitated this day for our girls

Congratulations to Maddison Caulfield and Caroline Higham who have recently become National Champions in their respective events at the 2015 National Track and Field Championships in Sydney.

I am sure that those of you who attended the Autumn Band Festival last night will agree that it was a fantastic concert with many highlights. All ensembles have obviously been working very hard during their short 6 weeks of rehearsals to bring us many toe tapping items as well as some more reflective, poignant moments.

I am writing this week from Sydney, where Ms Tracy Healy (Deputy Principal – Head of Senior School) and I are attending the “Future Schools” Conference. It has been stimulating to hear from international speakers about the various challenges that schools will face as we move into the future.

​It was great to see the many parents at the welcome evening last Friday night who took the opportunity to greet one another, speak to staff and make themselves known to the Year Level Representatives.
