In Term 3 we are beginning a Mentoring Program that is being run by a number of our Year 11 and Year 12 students. The Year 11 group are assisting Year 10s through their subject selection process and their program includes some goal setting activities. Our Year 12 group have been visiting our Year 7 and 8 pastoral groups to discuss ways to deal with changing friendships and making good choices around how to navigate these challenges. It has been great to see our senior students show great leadership and support for other members of the college community.

Term 3 also signals the beginning of the process to determine our Student Leadership Team for 2023. Applications for the various leadership roles opened at the beginning of this week. Those students applying for any of the key leadership roles for next year will embark on a rigorous selection process. We encourage our Year 11 cohort to consider what they are passionate about and how they could use this passion to serve the college community as a student leader.

Next week on Wednesday 10 August we look forward to holding our first face to face version of House Arts in the last three years. It will be wonderful to see students back up on stage to perform live.

This term, the staff are focusing on challenging students who are not wearing the school uniform correctly. Teenagers will often want to push the boundaries and this is also seen in how students might approach the wearing of their school uniform. Thank you for your support of these expectations. Like so much that is achieved here at the college, we are reliant and appreciate the importance of the partnership we have with our families.
