THE first week of school for the year passed swiftly and our Grade 8 pupils successfully completed their orientation week, which began at school and ended at Glenrock Edu-Ventures this past weekend.

Our Grade 9 pupils enjoyed their class camp at L’Abri, and their class teacher, Mr Christodoulou writes: “It was wonderful to witness the [pupils] handling difficult situations, learning to control their frustration when they couldn’t complete a task successfully together.

“They then had to attempt the same task but with different communication techniques that the facilitators taught them. The wall-climbing exercise was a huge challenge and certain [pupils] overcame substantial fear to attempt the climb. As teachers, we were very proud of their attitude and perseverance.”

The prefects, together with our principal, deputy principal and prefect counsellor engaged in very constructive discussions around the themes and plans for this year, and the prefects’ roles in the portfolios they head up: sport, day-scholar, boarder, cultural and environment.

We look forward to steady progress in each of these areas in our school as we ‘Live Well; Learn Well’. Thanks go to the Harburg Retreat Centre for providing the facility for the weekend, and to the prefects for the good food that was enjoyed. — Supplied.
