hroughout the week, each party has been sharing their proposals and initiatives with both the Leadership Team and the wider student body and the week will culminate with a virtual debate on Friday afternoon. We would like to congratulate each of the above students, as well as the Student Electoral Tribunal, for being willing to participate in this process and to provide leadership for the student body. We also wish each party the best of luck in next week’s election which will take place between Wednesday and Friday.

EARLY YEARS AND PRIMARY PARENT-TEACHER MEETINGS:We would like to remind all parents of Early Years and Primary students that classes (in-person and virtual) will end at 12:00 pm on Wednesday the 24th of March due to the Parent-Teacher meetings. Secondary classes will continue until 2:50 pm as normal.
HEALTH AND SAFETY UPDATE: We would like to thank all of our community members for assisting us in further trials of our revised departure procedures which included all year groups and were carried out on Wednesday and Thursday.
In order to increase campus security for our community members, we kindly remind all parents and caregivers to complete the google form for car stickers and have them placed in your motor vehicle as soon as possible. The stickers will be mandatory from the start of the upcoming quarter and motor vehicles without them will not be allowed directly onto campus until they are registered with the guard. We thank you kindly in advance for your cooperation.
