There is a buzz of excitement at Lowther Hall about our upcoming Careers Expo! The event is open to our Years 9-12 girls and their families, and will provide a 'Tertiary Trades Hall' as well as almost 50 Old Grammarians attending to speak on 16 different Career Interest Panels. Students in Years 9-12 and their families can book online as per the Bulletin instructions.

It was wonderful to welcome everyone back to school on Wednesday. As usual we commenced the term with an assembly for all students from Kindergarten to Year 12 and Ms Tracy Healy (Deputy Principal) and I were proud to talk to the girls about the ways in which we had shared the School’s world class leadership and cross-age programs with a global audience during our recent trip to America.

It is always a pleasure to see Lowther girls embrace every day with enthusiasm, grace and spirit. Everybody began the term today by gathering for a whole-school assembly, that focussed on all of the cross-age connections Lowther girls make with one another. We look forward to a fantastic term ahead with you!

​Thank you to everyone who has helped to make Term 2 such a success. Teachers, girls, student leaders and parents have all played a part in bringing enthusiasm, a willingness to get involved and a generosity of spirit to Lowther Hall over the last 10 weeks.

​This week I am in Washington DC with Deputy Principal, Ms Tracy Healy, presenting at the National Coalition of Girls’ Schools Global Forum on Girls’ Education. Our presentation is titled “Girls Leading Girls” and highlights the world class cross-age programs that we have in place at Lowther Hall.

​Seeing the Senior School Production of Annie this week has again confirmed how worthwhile it is for girls to be involved in cocurricular pursuits. The benefits that come from working as part of a team, learning new skills and being part of something rewarding are undeniable.

Last week I attended a 2 day forum on Anglican Schooling in Australia where I was fortunate to sit around the table with Archbishops, Bishops, School Principals and Chaplains from around the country, discussing the role of faith, reason, pluralism, service and character development within Anglican Schools today.
