We were so happy that the swimming carnival was able to take place this year, albeit with a few modifications. Due to the fact that cheering and war cries were off the table, the girls came up with some inventive ways to make sure that House spirit was alive and well. It was wonderful to see our House Leaders performing their roles so capably, leading and encouraging their Houses.
The level of participation was extremely high with many girls taking part in nearly every event for their age group. The results of the day are as follows. Congratulations to these students for their impressive achievements.
The House Cup and Spirit cup will be announced at our Awards Ceremony. So, keep your eyes peeled for the news!
A huge thank you to Mr Brock and the entire Sports Department, the House Leaders and the Primary School teachers for helping to make the day such a success.
Last Friday, we celebrated our Year 6 transition into the Secondary School with a beautiful final liturgy and assembly. Ms Ugonotti presented the girls with their Graduation certificates and each girl received a copy of ‘Heidi,’ by Johanna Spyri from Mrs Dwyer.
In the final assembly, Year 6 had some advice to share with Year 5, which included making lots of friends and having fun. The most important piece of advice was not to leave their work until the last minute because it is way too stressful! The assembly ended with Year 6 presenting the Primary School with a beautiful collaborative artwork which they had made under the expert guidance of Mrs Lucinda Langley and Head of Visual Arts, Ms Monica Boardman. The girls performed, ‘Que Serra’ by Justice Crew followed by an iMovie created by Ms Ball and Ms Speter which highlighted the many magical experiences throughout the year and ended with photos of the girls in Kindergarten and now in Year 6. There was barely a dry eye in the house.
Following the assembly was a celebratory lunch, which was greatly enjoyed by all. A huge thank you to Mrs Forder (mother of Isabella, Year 6) for creating the most incredible cake for the girls.
Thank you to all for your virtual attendance at what was a joyous event.
After a week of inspiring speeches, I am pleased to announce that the School Leaders for Semester 1 2022 are as follows:
The girls will receive their badges early next year at the Year 6 Leadership Liturgy.

As the year draws to a close, I wish you a joyous Christmas vacation and a peaceful New Year. I leave you with this prayer:
God of wisdom,
we thank you for all the gifts you have given us throughout this school year.
We praise you for giving us life, for saving us in Christ, and for choosing us to be your people.
As we come to the end of this school year, we voice our gratitude for the good things you have done in us,
and we praise you for all who have shared in the work of this school.
We ask you to bless them in your love and give them refreshment and peace.
We praise you, God, through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns forever and ever.
God bless and take care.
