There has been plenty happening in the Middle School as students have returned refreshed following the three-week break. Students have begun new subjects and are further involving themselves in the co-curricular and sport programs. In two short weeks we have already seen our Young Farmers successfully compete at the Bendigo Show, our Year 7/12 Buddy Program continues and all Year 7-9 students have begun interschool sport matches. I am greatly looking forward to our Annual Music Concert this coming Friday 4 August and am excited to see students perform and see the rewards of their efforts.
In the coming weeks, we have quite a few opportunities to come together as a community to support student initiatives with the aim of raising awareness and funds for people in need. The Poverty Project is running a ‘Comedy for a Cause’ Night on Friday 18 August, tickets are $15 for children U18 and $20 for adults. Proceeds go to The Sunflower Foundation, an organisation that believes in the power of educating girls. You can book your tickets here. Our Antipodeans Vietnam students are planning several fundraising events to raise money for the community project they will be undertaking in September. I hope these events are a great success!
On Friday 25 August we will be holding our inaugural Girls’ Middle School ‘Big Day In’. The theme for the day is our 2017 Middle School theme ‘Aspire and Inspire’ and throughout the day girls will be participating in workshops and hearing from guest speakers and presenters while focusing on creativity, mindfulness, gratitude and community. It’s sure to be a valuable and engaging day for our girls.
