Dear Parents and Friends,

We have experienced a wonderful Term 1. Including camps, numerous sporting events, the introduction of the IB (International Baccalaureate) PYP (Primary Years Program) and Wugubank Week, there is much to excite us about learning.

Little children in our Early Learning Centre and Prep have made significant gains learning how to learn in their environments, while meeting the new challenges of the daily routines. Other new students to our campus have also settled in extremely well.

Core focuses at each School Meeting bind us together in our quest to have children learn how to be considerate and mindful students and friends. It is all part of a most important journey.

At our School Meeting in Week 9, the focus on friendship reminded us that it is a learning area as significant as any other. A quote from Aristotle reminded us that…

"Wishing to be friends is quick work, but friendship is a slow ripening fruit."
