As we near the mid-way point of our term it is great to see the girls settling in and enjoying their second semester subjects. We have had another busy couple of weeks with some tremendously enjoyable events taking place. Our Year 8s participated in a leadership seminar this week which will continue to be built upon in the coming weeks as the girls prepare for 2017 when they will be leaders of the Middle School. Our Year 7s have continued their investigation into a ‘notable’ person for their upcoming ‘Night of the Notables’ and Year 9 girls have been preparing for their Winter Camp which is taking place next week. Throw in to the mix interschool sport, debating and public speaking competitions along with piano concerts and an Acapella Workshop and there’s no doubt that there’s plenty of opportunities to get involved in. During our Middle School assembly on Wednesday we were fortunate enough to hear from Meagan Hynson playing a beautiful piece on guitar. We also had a guest speaker, Laura Driessen who is a Radio Astronomer and a past student, currently studying in Amsterdam. Her presentation was interesting, exciting and inspiring, leaving us all wanting to find out more about the wonderful world of science and space!
