Boarding Bulletin – Week 3 Term 3

August 10, 2018 at 3:53 pm

Our boarders have been very busy this week with extra curricular commitments. It’s great to see the girls out and about and actively participating in sport and cultural activities.

A highlight of the week was our Academic  Assembly on Wednesday and I was very proud sitting on stage watching so many of our boarding community congratulated by our Principal, Christine Hills. The year 12 boarders were also recognised for their achievement in the tug of war against the day girls at the athletics carnival. A great achievement and our year 12 boarders now await the cake cooked by the Principal. This has been a great tradition for many years.

There has certainly been a cold snap this week in Rockhampton and the girls have been rugged up more than usual at night. We are hoping for warmer weather to arrive. Our weekend activities will be listed each week in this Bulletin, so I ask you to encourage your daughter to get involved.

Last weekend Kollar House invited Year 10 to join them for a steak night on the verandah outside Year 11 dorm. The girls enjoyed cooking “great steak” on the barbecue and later danced the night away. It was an excellent night and will become a monthly activity for the girls.

Our younger girls have enjoyed the movies, restaurants, shopping trips and walks to the Botanical gardens and the Zoo. I am hoping more girls will make an effort to get involved and enjoy the activities on offer.

Weekend Activities 10th, 11th, 12th August

Have a great weekend.
