Swimming Carnival and Thank You
When we run activities in Middle School, we are juggling a number of priorities. We want our students to achieve their very best no matter what the pursuit, we want to look for ways to build a sense of belonging and community, we want to provide engaging experiences, we want your children to be challenged and push themselves and we want them to have a great time, enjoying being a part of Middle School. I feel our Swimming Carnival on Thursday ticked all of those boxes for most of our students. What a great day! The days before the carnival we were concerned about the possibility of bad weather and while we had a small amount of rain it was not enough to put a dampener on the student’s enthusiasm. Thank you to all of the parents and supporters who came out to cheer on the children. For those parents who wrote encouraging emails or made positive comments about the day to me or other staff, thank you, our staff were greatly encouraged by your comments.

Please have a look at some of the great photos on the Middle School Instagram feed. (#babyshark)

Year 8 Breakfast, Friday 21 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. I would love to see you there.

As we head into our fourth week of the year, I would like to let new parents know that I really appreciate hearing feedback about Middle School. Please feel free to send me an email or organise a meeting at any time by contacting the Middle School Office.

Mr Gavin Neale
Head of Middle School
