This week we have had our final Orientation Day for our 2018 Year 7s. On a rather warm day, it was terrific to see the girls enjoying the day and approaching activities enthusiastically, especially the ‘Amazing Race’! Our Year 8s are busily preparing for their ‘Days for Girls’ and have been fundraising throughout the week selling zooper doopers and cold drinks (which are very well received in this hot weather). Year 9s have completed their first examinations and can now look forward to Year 10 academic and pastoral transition from 22 November – 1 December prior to their Summer Expeditions 4-8 December.
Our Year 7 and 8 students will be taking part in the eYp or ‘End of Year Program’ from 6-8 December. Throughout the three days girls will be working in House groups on a comprehensive and engaging project. The project topics are still ‘top secret’ but there’s going to be plenty of opportunities for students to demonstrate their skills in creativity, teamwork and collaboration as well as test their thinking skills. Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks!
Girls in Year 8 are currently asked to nominate for 2018 Middle School Leadership Positions. There are various positions that girls can be involved in; Middle School Captain, Middle School Vice-Captain, Middle School Leader, House Captain, Sport Captain, Music and Drama Captain and Community Service Captain. Leadership is a great opportunity for individuals to develop themselves and experience fulfilment in their school life and we have received many expressions of interest this year. Girls who have nominated to be Middle School Captain/Middle School Leader will be presenting a speech to all Year 7 and 8 girls during Wednesday’s Middle School Assembly.
