At this time of year I meet with each Year 12 student in her House group to hear how the year has begun and to receive feedback about the classes and programs that the girls are undertaking. It is always a delight to touch base with the girls and share time together with them. I am incredibly impressed with the focussed and productive start to the year that the girls have made. They are managing their time effectively and engaging with their subjects in a very mature and disciplined manner.

This week I have also enjoyed assisting the Year 7 girls to re-create some photos from the School’s past, spending some time at the Raymond House Athletics Carnival, participating in the Blessing of the Animals with girls in Years 10 to 12 and hearing updates from the Year 9 Duke of Edinburgh Adventurous Journey. This evening I look forward to seeing the Class of 2014 at their 5 year reunion and hearing about the various things that they have been doing in their lives beyond Lowther Hall. As we enter into the final 2 weeks of Term 1 we will increase our focus on Easter and also prepare for the Commissioning of our additional school Chaplain, Reverend Fiona Raike on the last day of term. It is a joyous time of celebration!
