Our prayers, our good wishes and our constant support is with each of our HSC students that commenced their Trials Exams on Monday. We are so proud of where you've reached and whilst we have every confidence in your abilities, you need to also believe it. The emotional POWER of the mind makes a huge difference so whilst it's totally understandable and acceptable that you may be anxious, unsure etc, also remind yourself that you have, and you are doing everything you can to further polish or indeed in some cases, to fill the gaps that may exist. Keep prayer at the forefront of your mind and to ease your anxieties and challenges. Your teachers are to be congratulated for the enormous amount of time and (own time) effort they have given during recent school breaks, afternoons and evenings. Always try to do your best in preparations, then whatever may occur thereafter leaves you with the knowledge that you put your all into it.
Future Enrolment Applications
By now, most would be aware that 2020 Kindergarten and 2020 Year 7 were closed late 2018 with all subsequent Applications on Waiting Lists. Please be advised that within these Waiting Lists, existing students' Sibling Applications take precedence and priority for whenever an upcoming or future vacancy is notified to us.
There are a few positions still available for 2021 Kindergarten and 2021 Year 7 so if you are a current parent and have not yet done so, PLEASE contact Mrs Mervat Sidhom on 9825 6768 to outline what is required and then complete this process as quickly as is possible.
