It has been a great week which culminated in our Anti Bullying Day on Friday. Students and teachers lead the charge against bullying where students have committed to look out for their fellow classmates' wellbeing, not just on the National Day of Action, but every single day of the year.
The day was a great way to bring everyone together and practice strategies for addressing bullying. The day commenced with a virtual assembly which has been our "new" normal since COVID.
The campus used the day to dress in bright colours to lift the mood and as a theme as a visual reminder of the Bullying No Way message. Students and staff enjoyed netball, golf chipping, chicken throwing, table tennis, unicycling, inclusive artwork on anti bullying, Finska, milkshakes and o'course no day is complete without a sausage sandwich.
The take home message Anti Bullying Day is every day. Thank you to our teachers who coordinated the day Doug Pirie and Lerren Apthorpe and to all our teaching staff who enthusiastically participated in the day.
The last two weeks have been an extremely busy time for our Year 12 students. In addition to completing their trial exams we had our Dance and Drama students complete their final HSC Practical Exam for external markers and our Timber and Textiles students submit their final major works for marking.
Please find below some great resources from the NSW Education Standards Authority to help parents assist their sons and daughters through the HSC.
This year’s HSC is different due to COVID-19. Information is available on the NESA website to clearly answer parents’ questions about the HSC exams.
I would love to invite all parents to view our recently added “Virtual Tour” that we have developed for our community so that you have a greater understanding of what takes place at our campus.
