Middle School - Term 2, Week 9, 2019

Uniform matter
Please check the Student Diary and the Middle School Handbook for all expectations regarding uniform. The current focus areas are correct socks (particularly with Sports uniform), jewellery and correct jumpers (warm clothing in general). If there is a reason your child cannot wear the correct uniform that day, please provide a note in your child’s diary.

History Week is next week
There are many events planned next week for History Week. I am really appreciative of the team of History teachers who plan and present these opportunities for students to enjoy and learn.

We pray for you and your children
I trust that you gain encouragement and peace from knowing that as a staff we pray for the students of Pacific Hills and their parents. Prayer is such a powerful privilege and we regularly pray for both significant matters that we know families are facing and in general, as we don’t know everything and parenting is challenging.

Year 6 Camp
Last week our Year 6 students went to Canberra. They had a great time and I enjoyed hearing some of the great stories of their experiences. While they were away I enjoyed following some of what they were doing on the Middle School Instagram account. If you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, please search for pachillsmiddle on Instagram to see some of the exciting things that are going on in Middle School.
