This week in Senior School I have enjoyed hearing the girls rehearsing their songs and scripts for the forthcoming House Performing Arts Competition in March. It is gratifying to watch girls across all year levels working together with focus and supporting their student leaders in the lead up to this event.

It has been wonderful to have some opportunities to connect with parents in the last few weeks – at Information Evenings, Junior School Learning Conferences and special events. The feedback that I receive from parents is very valuable in continuing to ensure that we provide the very best educational service to our girls and families. I do encourage you to feel free to make an appointment to see me any time through the year if you feel there are things that would be helpful for me to know. Please do not feel that you would be wasting my time! It is important to me that I know how things are going for you and your daughters.

2015 has started with a strong sense of purpose and a positive spirit palpable across all areas of the School. It was wonderful to see so many smiling faces coming through the gates this week in anticipation of seeing friends, starting classes and beginning the adventure that will be 2015.
