Whilst only a short week of school, it has been wonderful to see our students jump straight into learning opportunities with gusto! In Mr Simmons absence, I’m going to share some highlights from the classroom during our first week of term.
On Monday, our community and nation remembered the sacrifices made by so many men and women on ANZAC Day. I’d like to thank Mikaela Scott and Xanthe McDonald for representing our College at the Ballina ANZAC March.
This week our Year 10 students began leading Year 7 through the Peer Support Program. They are going to meet each fortnight in small groups to support Year 7 in their transition to secondary education. The Peer Support Program is a peer led, skills based experiential learning program that encourages peer connections and assists students in developing practical skills that enhance social and emotional wellbeing. We look forward to seeing students in both year levels learn new skills through their participation in this program.
Kindergarten students began their exploration of Under the Sea this week. When our senior students saw the transformation of the Kindy room, even they wanted to go and join in!
On Thursday, Stage 5 students explored dramatic improvisation in Creative and Performing Arts. It was great to see them embrace the opportunity to step outside their comfort zone and have fun whilst playing Expert Double Figures.
Finally, I would like to congratulate Olivia Kyprianou and Tyrel Kelly for their outstanding sporting achievements, resulting in both students being selected to represent the College at a state level. We wish them all the best as Olivia competes at the upcoming CIS Swimming Carnival and Tyrel completes in the 18 and Under CIS Touch Football.
