Year 7s Involved in Extension Program
 
As a result of some outstanding achievements in term one, our maths and English Heads of Department have started extension programs with some of our highest achieving year sevens in the areas of maths and English.
 
Mr Hage and Mrs Kean have begun meeting with these groups a couple of times per week and are exposing the students to a range of extended skills and knowledge. So far, the students have been engaging well in the programs and are keen to learn more.
 
In fact, some of the students have even been able to teach their families a thing or two since beginning their extension programs!  This exposure to extension tasks will prepare the students for extension maths and English when they enter grade eight next year.  A special thanks to Mr Hage and Mrs Kean for going the extra mile with these students.
 
Junior Secondary Leadership
 
The school year is well underway now and our Junior Secondary Leaders are wasting no time getting stuck into their projects.  One of our year seven teachers, Miss Bird, has volunteered to work with our leaders this year and she is beginning to see some fantastic ideas developing within the group already.  The student leaders aim to serve the school and wider community in areas such as charity, fundraising and social gatherings.  We are looking forward to seeing the fruits of their labour throughout the year and we thank Miss Bird for her commitment to this group.
