The 2015 Academic Year has come to a busy end as the last two weeks of term have been packed with activities for our Middle School Girls. No doubt a highlight for students in Years 7 and 8 was their involvement in the eYp (end of year program). Feedback from staff and students has been enormously positive and probably the most pleasing aspect to the week was the girls willingness to push themselves, develop new friendships with girls from other year levels and show their creativity and lateral thinking skills.
Our Year 8s have also taken part in ‘Days for Girls’, a wonderful initiative which has brought our community together, allowed students to live our school motto ‘Deeds not Words’ and have a positive impact on individuals and communities around the globe.
Our Year 9s have returned from their Summer Expeditions to the Mitchell River, Gippsland Lakes and Freycinet National Park. It has been fantastic to spend time with the girls in the outdoors and see how far they’ve come throughout their Middle School journey.
Today we have celebrated our Year 9s as they move out of Middle School and into the Senior College. At our combined Middle Schools Assembly not only did we reflect on a terrific year but we also recognised each Year 9 girl individually. Girls were given their new Senior College jumper which was received with great excitement! Congratulations to Yasmin Lobo and Tara McAsey who were recipients of the Endeavour Award and Elspeth Adamson Award respectively.
Congratulations must also go to the following girls from Year 8 who have been elected by their peers and teachers to lead our Middle School in 2016 – Leaders 2016
I wish all families a fantastic break. I hope that you have an opportunity to relax and spend time together as a family and I very much look forward to seeing the girls on day 1 of 2016!
