It was an honour to welcome a large number of new and returning students to boarding last weekend. We had a fantastic time at the ‘Welcome Back!’ barbecue and look forward to running more community events this year. We have been amazed by the maturity of students to adapt to change and their ever increasing independence. Last week we saw the launch of Thursday Team Time: students worked in their House Teams to complete a scavenger hunt.This week, Ms Drew and Ms Gemma, launched the ‘Morning Mile’ in a bid to promote student health and wellbeing, We have also all had dinner together in the canteen each night and hope that students are learning more about healthy food and lifestyle choices.

Due to the new schedule, Academic Development is now at an earlier time. Primary have responded well to working with Ms Gemma every day; Secondary students now work across three different spaces and are adjusting well to their new study routines. During free time, students can now relax in the refurbished communal spaces: utilising the lounges, study spaces and shared kitchens.

We are pleased to announce that all new students are settling in well and are excited to learn more about the boarding community. We are regularly updating our Boarding Facebook and Instagram pages so please do like and follow us to find out what we have been up to.
