Welcome to 2023
The first few days of the school year have been fantastic! The girls have welcomed back new friends and met some wonderful new friends. They have settled into their classrooms and started to explore what 2023 might bring for them. It has been a great start! I am incredibly grateful to our team of exceptional teachers who have worked hard to prepare the classrooms for our girls, 2023 is going to be a wonderful year for our School!
Parent Information Evening – Wednesday 8 February
We look forward to welcoming parents at our Parent Information Evening on Wednesday February 8 at 7pm. The families of Girls’ Junior School will meet at 7pm in the Colebrook Hall and then following a presentation from Mr Fry and Mrs Prandolini, will move to the classrooms to hear from Class Teachers. Our evening will conclude with drinks in the Community Hub which will be an opportunity for families to speak to our staff and other parents.
At our Parent Information Evening, parents will hear further detail regarding our Towards 2030 Forward Strategy and in particular what this will entail for the Girls’ Junior School. Our theme for 2023, is ‘Confidence is the key in 2023’. For young girls, particularly those between ages 8-14, strong confidence can impact them in many aspects of their lives, and it is hoped that this theme will provoke reflection, and the development of a strong sense of self in all girls.
The Prep girls have had a wonderful start to their school journey in the Girls’ Junior School. They are a delightful group of curious learners, who today happily demonstrated to me their counting prowess as they joined confidently in a new counting game! Mrs. Whitcher has done an amazing job in ensuring each girl is settled in and is beginning to feel the strong sense of connection in being a Tinternite! Welcome Prep girls, we are really glad you have joined us!
