HSC Examinations
The Higher School Certificate Examinations commenced on Monday 16 October and will continue until 7 November. Students are required to wear full school uniform to all exams. Please pray for our Year 12 students and their families over the coming weeks, that our students will handle the pressures of their final examinations and that their families will be able to support them well.

Learning for Life Personal Projects
This week, our Year 9 Learning for Life students displayed their personal projects in the Senior School Space. The projects showed great creativity and hard work. It was exciting to see the way in which students embraced this opportunity to express their creativity. Special thanks to Mrs Harmeling for all her work in setting up the display and more importantly for motivating the students to produce such fine pieces of work.

Open Day
On Thursday this week, Pacific Hills opened its doors for perspective new families to come and look at the facilities and also find out more information regarding our School. Visitors appreciated the opportunity to tour the School and also see the fantastic Learning for Life display by our Year 9 students. I want to publicly thank our student leaders who served as tour guides. They were excellent ambassadors for the School.

2018 Student Stationery Requirements
Information regarding stationery requirements for 2018 were emailed home at the end of last term. If you wish to purchase your stationery through CIS, completed order forms were due back to Senior School Office today in order for delivery at the end of year. Orders can still be placed online – refer to information emailed to you for collection dates. CIS have supplied stationery packs to school families for a number of years and makes shopping easy for parents with their online order option and delivery to the school.

Summer Uniform
Please remember that Term 4 requires the wearing of the School’s summer uniform, which includes the wearing of the school hat when on the oval or courts.
