7 February 2014
Welcome everyone to the 2014 school year; it is great to see all the students again, hear about their holidays and see how much they have grown over the break. Welcome to all families of the 2014 Year 7 students. I look forward to meeting you at the year 7 parent picnic next week. It is fantastic to see everyone again, and to see such a large and happy group of year 7s on their first days of secondary school.
Congratulations to our 2013 Year 12s on their results and more importantly, for their success in gaining places in tertiary institutions in a wide range of areas. I wish them well in their studies and in their travels for those taking and gap year. The dual duxes, Marco and Ingrid, returned to school this week to speak to the current year 12s. It was a pleasure to see them again and I thank them for their time and wise words.
