Thank you

Thank you to staff, parents, alumni and students who have made Term 2 a both successful and productive one across the boys鈥 spiritual, cognitive, social, emotional and physical dimensions. School Reports for Year 7-10 should have been received yesterday which provide an opportunity to celebrate successes and review areas of development.聽

Safe travels to our 46 students and 6 staff members as they embark on the 2024 European Music Tour. They have been practising and working towards this trip for 8 months and over the next 15 days, they will perform and immerse themselves in musical and cultural experiences throughout Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Italy, and Switzerland.聽

Congratulations to Jack George in Year 12 who represented 糖心Vlog at the VET Training Awards as a regional finalist, and won the category of 鈥榁ET Student of the Year.鈥櫬 He will represent 糖心Vlog at state level next month.

Year 12

Please keep our Year 12’s in your thoughts and prayers at this busy and crucial time of the year, as they continue their preparation for their upcoming trial and then HSC examinations. Thank you to our staff who continue to offer extra tutorials throughout this Term, and through this upcoming holiday period. Please ensure your son maintains good exercise, relaxation time, reduced screen time, good sleep patterns and a healthy diet during this time. Please do not allow your son to change his normal sleep patterns drastically and sleep in. A consistent approach to his day over the next few months is what is required.
