Thank You

Term 2 has been very busy and I know everyone has been working hard to manage their time to keep the ship steaming ahead around report writing. I'd like to take the opportunity to thank you all for your effort and I look forward to reading your reports next week. In particular, I'd like to thank and acknowledge Brendan for preparing the template through ESR and ironing out any glitches in such an efficient way.


Our debating team had their second debate this week and, while they weren't victorious, I am told they showed a marked improvement and as a team, they are sponges that are very eager to learn and grow. I'd like to thank Brendan and Elise for sharing their expertise and precious time to develop these valuable skills with our kids.


Finally, I'd like to thank Elise for organising and administering the first two ICAS tests this term. Elise has conducted the tests before school to give our kids another testing experience and an opportunity to achieve beyond the classroom. Thanks for your time and organisation Elise.
