It is always delightful to see our students return for a new school year!  At the Years 1 to 12 assembly on Wednesday we had the opportunity to welcome our many new students and new staff and to present them with a Lowther Hall Teddy Bear as a sign of connection to our community. The girls were in fine voice as they sang our School Song with great enthusiasm and their delight to be back and to see their friends and teachers was palpable.  This morning we welcomed our Preparatory and Kindergarten girls and there were many special “first day” moments captured at the front of the Mansion or in the gardens and classrooms. Over the last few weeks the staff have been busy preparing for the return of the girls and planning learning experiences for them that I am confident they will find engaging and enjoyable. It should be an excellent year!
