Mother’s Day Stall and Gift Wrapping Day
Thank you to the incredible volunteers who assisted with the Mother’s Day Stall on Wednesday 9 May. Your assistance was of great help to the excited Junior School students, and I am sure greatly appreciated by all the Mums and significant women in their lives on Mother’s Day.
Thank you especially to the TPG for once again arranging a fantastic selection of gifts for the students to purchase.
Careers Night 2018
The CM Wood Centre was abuzz last Thursday night as we welcomed 50+ alumni, tertiary institutions, students and their families to help our students Find Their Future Selves at our 2018 Careers Night!
This special occasion brought together the School community, allowing students to gain valuable insights and knowledge from our alumni’s experiences over a diverse range of careers and industries. The conversations and interactions may have even helped our students discover new industries they hadn’t yet considered!
Thank you to our alumni and the tertiary institutions who gave their time to provide the students with this extremely valuable experience. Thank you also to the students for their enthusiasm and insightful questions, and their families for supporting them.
We would love your feedback on this year’s Careers Night. Please select the relevant link below:
