It’s been another incredibly busy week with so much happening within and outside of the classrooms. If we keep going at this rate, we’ll all be exhausted before the end of October! That won’t be the case of course – we know 4th term is always hectic so we brace our- selves and pace ourselves so that we make it to the finish line.
Mia Alexander and Nicole Denipitiya had the honour of delivering our first ever Acknowledgement of Country at Monday’s Assem- bly. From now on our School Captains will perform this function, but we thought it appropriate for Mia and Nicole to do it first as, along with Remi Steen and Vishni Attanayake, these Grade 4 girls had proposed the idea and then saw it through to fruition after lots of hard work. Thank you girls. Lisa Ong blew the audience away with her wonderful playing (keyboard) and singing of See You Again and the Violin Ensemble, led by Rosemary Walsh, played Canon in D and The Hundred Pipers extremely well. Remi Steen featured again when, along with Ashleigh Frost, they were applauded for their fine work as Artists of the Week. Our Walk/Wheel winners were 6NK, weekly House competition winners Killara and the children were reminded that they need to wear hats outside during 4th term. We acknowledged the 41 children who had received Credits in the ICAS English Competition and presented Distinction Certificates to the following high achievers: Isaac Huynh, Peri Kay-Kneebone, Christina Koutsioufitis, Junn Siah, Linda Chen, Mia Alexan- der, Remi Steen, Nicole Meng, Mia Kagiaros, Leon Zhang, James Del Papa, Angelina Liu, Chloe Plant, Henry Smith, Carl Lu, Mimi Dassanayake and Philip Wing-Shing. We then celebrated with Eleanor Seery, Andrew Zhu and Max Leonidis who received the outstanding result of High Distinctions. Special congratulations to those three students and congratulations to all those who participated and performed so well.
