Swimming Carnival and Thank You
We had a great day at the Swimming Carnival on Thursday. Thank you to all of the parents and supporters who came out to cheer on the children. Thank you to the staff for their consistent and generous effort on what can feel like a long day without a break – the Middle School team are great at keeping a smile on their face and encouraging the children. Thank you also to the students for their good behaviour and enthusiasm.

One other thank you – all notes were brought in prior to the Swimming Carnival and there was no need to make any phone calls on the morning of the Carnival (we’ve also had all notes returned for Year 7 Camp in quick time). This is a great symbol of commitment from parents and is an encouragement when we look at all of the little contributions made by each family – THANK YOU PARENTS!

Year 8 Breakfast – Journey, Friday 22 February
The Year 8 Breakfast next Friday is a very significant time for students and families. We are really looking forward to this event and the chance to share good food and fond memories as part of assisting the children in growing up. RSVPs are due in from Year 8 students to the Middle School Office.

Welcome to Mr Neale
It was announced to the Middle School students this week that Mr Neale will be the next Head of Middle School. He will start on Monday 11 March (Week 7) and my last day will be March 8.

Mr Colin Wood
Head of Middle School
