This term the Year 6 girls have had the exciting chance to visit the Year 7 Centre as part of our transition to Senior School.

Mrs Penberthy and Mrs Saffin told us all about what to expect in Year 7 whilst we ate a delicious morning tea. We talked about the different houses, subjects, languages and the exhilarating clubs that we will be able to participate in both during and after school. We had a sneak peak at the lockers where we will put our folders for each class and we walked by the classrooms where the students were learning different subjects and languages.

During the term two holidays, Katrina and I participated in the 2022 Simpson Prize Canberra program. Following two years of cancellations and online ceremonies, we were both incredibly grateful and excited to have the opportunity to travel interstate and participate in the program. On this four-day trip, we interacted and learnt from the 14 other winners and runners-up from each state and territory of Australia; and took part in several tours, visiting many of the historical institutions and commemorative sites of the Nation’s capital.

Last week our Year 8 and 9 students attended a Subject Expo in Wyselaskie Hall to assist with their selection of elective subjects for the following year. Resembling a University open day, the girls visited various stands and relished the opportunity to learn more about diverse subjects such as Medical Mysteries and Marvels, Computer Science, Sports Leadership, Classics, Textiles and many more. The girls really got involved in the event and we wish them all the best with their decision-making over the coming weeks.

As part of the OutLook Learning program, over 100 Year 9 students enjoyed a mass-planting of the green understorey along the northern boundary parallel to Daniel St. The girls loved getting their hands dirty and helping to revitalise and develop the native wildlife corridor that connects the College and Gardiner’s Creek.

Our Year 11 students recently participated in a Financial Literacy workshop on how to manage, earn and grow their money.
