Our new Student Representative Council (SRC) ran its first school fundraising activity this week in the form of a Costume Day. Students surrendered a gold coin for the privilege of dressing in costume or mufti. There was a wide range of inventive costumes. The SRC had difficulty deciding on the ultimate winners! … I think the photos on page 3 tell the story best!

On the theme of building resilience and coping skills, next week our Year 7 students will embark on five days of water safety activities at Balmoral Beach. The Water Awareness program aims to provide training to our Year 7 students around water safety. Mrs Terrey and the PE Department, have had huge success over the years in encouraging students to approach the ocean safely, whilst having fun. Looking over the forecast for next week, it appears that the students will have some warm weather. Thus, please remind your son/daughter that it is their responsibility to ensure they are adequately protected from the sun. As there is not a huge amount of shade at the venue, students will need to cover up by regularly applying sunscreen and wearing sun protective clothing at all times. All the best to our Year 7 cohort who will no doubt enjoy the week.
