Growth in Upper Primary

During a day filled with entertainment and inspiration, our Year 6 Prefects and Sports Captains journeyed to the Entertainment Centre for GRIP Leadership Conference 2024.

Enthusiastically connecting with students from all across South Australia, our student leaders found joy in the exchange of ideas and advice during this experience. The conference blended practical insights with interactive sessions, creating an atmosphere that not only captivated but actively engaged our young leaders. A defining moment was discovering the power of using our talents to “Step Up, Step In, Step Out, and Step Closer,” reinforcing the belief that everybody can lead.

Adding to the excitement, our leaders had the privilege of meeting with Mr Clint Hendry, the General Manager of Commercial for the Adelaide Football Club. Engaging in thoughtful discussions, our students gained valuable insights into leadership and effective project management, further fuelling their ideas. A big thank you to Mr Hendry for sharing his time and expertise with us.


New Outdoor Learning Spaces

On the home front, we are very grateful for the Capital Grant received from the SA State Government, enabling us to collaborate with LCS Landscapes in the creation of four outdoor learning spaces in our Upper Primary area. Now complete, these spaces serve as hubs where students not only thrive academically but also find rest during break times.

As the year progresses, our Year 6 families recently enjoyed the Twilight Tours. This event gave families a unique opportunity to gain a fresh perspective on our High School facilities and to connect with the High School staff. These opportunities are invaluable as our families prepare for the exciting transition to Middle School next year.

In a busy first half of Term 1, our Year 6 leaders have not only embraced the opportunity to enhance their leadership skills but have also witnessed the transformation of their learning environment. As we continue to nurture leadership and community, we look forward to more exciting events, projects and fundraisers coming up this year.
