Head of school’s Comment

ur work on Respect, particularly on how our actions can benefit all and are a good example to all, is currently being explored. It is a particularly good time to study this area as we have many new students at play during our breaks, our school sport competitions have begun and we also have our swimming carnival next week. We are addressing what it means to be a good sport and how positive encouragement, being humble and giving thanks, adds to the experience of competition. 
We look for action as a practical application of the development of our Values. Our sport teachers are aware of this focus and have been highlighting this within their programs. Likewise our staff, throughout the school, are on the lookout for evidence to celebrate both inside the classroom and at break times. I hope that if you attend our swimming carnival next week, you too will see this in action. Great comradery and pride within the Houses combined with support for other swimmers, whether they come first or just do their best.
