Exciting Changes Ahead

It has been an exciting start to the 2020 school year. I’d like to add my welcome to all of our new students (all 122 of you!) and families to the College and trust that you have experienced a smooth start within the first few weeks of the academic year.

Within the High School, our families were invited to our High School Information Evenings, held over two Mondays in Week 2 and 3. It was a blessing for our staff to meet you briefly, in order to convey relevant information regarding subject content and expectations. I do hope these evenings were helpful, and you were able to meet your child’s teacher face-to-face.

Our Year 12s are now heavily focused on their school work, with the realisation that this is their final year of school! They were very inspired by the meaningful presentations from the guest speakers at the Year 12 Camp, where there was also a real sense of community, and many opportunities for deep reflection on their individual futures.

More to come

There are a number of exciting things to come during 2020 in the High School. We look forward to beginning a significant building project that will provide a permanent and modern facility for High School CLIC (Cedar Learning improvement Centre) as well as some additional teaching spaces.

Cedar Cup

This week, we are launching our revamped House competition to the High School. After reviewing our previous system, and after much work, we have developed the Cedar Cup – a House competition which incorporates and values a broad spectrum of High School experiences, and which every student can contribute to. High School families will hear more about this exciting initiative very soon.

As we progress further into the school year, we look forward to partnering with you, our school community, as we educate our young people in 2020!

Mr Andrew Lock, Head of High School
