Middle School House Cross Country
The sun was shining on Thursday as we headed off to the House Cross Country event held at Lilydale Lake. It was a terrific afternoon that saw high levels of participation, support and encouragement by our Middle School girls.
On Tuesday this week Erin Nancarrow (Year 9) organised a casual clothes day for secondary school students to raise awareness of and funds for Motor Neuron Disease. It was a very successful day with many students supporting this great cause through their donations and purchasing of merchandise and delicious cupcakes. During Middle School Assembly on Wednesday the girls were introduced to a new initiative being run by Nicolani Susanto, Molly Fleming and Rose Russell. The project involves knitting blankets and beanies for community members who are disadvantaged and will greatly benefit from these items in the coming winter months. Donations are being sought for wool and knitting needles. If you are able to assist with any donations please send them along with your child to drop off at their Year Level Co-ordinators office. These two activities are great examples of our students showing empathy, compassion and initiative to support others in need and really embody our school motto ‘Factis no Verbis’ (By deeds not by words)
