Newsletter – Issue 8
When we reflect back on 2022 as a school community, the year can be characterised by our optimism, enthusiasm, resilience, and a sense of urgency to seize the day. There was a real sense of excitement around the return of onsite learning and teaching and for the opportunities to reconnect with each other. We are very proud of our students’ achievements, commitment, hardwork and endeavour to strive to do their personal best throughout the year. Moreover, we encourage the students to continue to be curious, creative, and critical thinkers and to develop an intrinsic motivation and passion for learning.
Students participated in record numbers in the House events and once again enjoyed playing music and sport. They attended the Student Progress Conferences, camps, clubs, the Year 10 and 12 Formals, Valedictory Dinner celebrations, Peter Pan Play and the spectacular James Morrison workshops and concerts.
The Science Talent Search Competition was very popular and a team of 15 students built their own robot and entered it in the First Robotics National competition, where we won the ‘Best Rookie Team Award’. This robot cut the ribbon at the official opening of our STEM Centre, which was attended the state member for Box Hill Mr Paul Hamer. Students were also very enthusiastic about the introduction of the new Dog Therapy Program.
