2020 Term 3 Week 3
From the Principal
During this week, a special focus at the Senior School has been on the promotion of good mental health outcomes for our students in our annual Blue Week.

From the Head of Senior School
Term 3 sees much planning for next year, and it was encouraging to have so many parents and students at the recent SACE subject information evenings. The ability to live-stream these events to families at home has been well received and is an initiative we hope to keep for future parent events. The students have been attending subject information assemblies at school. These explain the subject selection... read more
From the Head of Studies and Innovation
Recent reviews across the country regarding pathways into work after secondary schooling have recommended that all students leave school with a Learner Profile.

It is different from ‘wagging’ or truancy and is often related to worry or anxiety-related issues about going to school. School refusal may start gradually or happen suddenly. Although it is normal for a child to occasionally miss a day of school, parents and caregivers... read more
From the Head of Junior School
The theme for our liturgy this week is St Mary of the Cross MacKillop, Australia's first saint, whose feast we celebrate on Saturday 8 August. The Junior School holds a special place of endearment for Mary MacKillop, after whom our library is named. Mary established a women’s refuge for ‘fallen’ and destitute women in what remains as the historic part of our library as seen from... read more
