The term is well and truly under way in the Junior School. Year 8 students have been beginning to understand the new technology that has been implemented this year in the form of E-books. Many Year 7 students and their parents attended the first of the information evenings relating to the appropriate use and expectations involving the laptops. Year 8 parents have also been asked to attend a refresher session with their student in the coming week these dates can be confirmed by calling the front office.
We would like to thank all of the parents who were able to attend the Year 7 open afternoon last week. It was fantastic to see so many of you there and we were glad to hear that your students are settling in well. Please remember that we are happy to hear from you if you have any concerns or if you have any positives that we should be aware of.
Year 8 students have a big few weeks ahead. On Wednesday 22nd each homeroom will be involved in a seed propagation session with Ray Thomas as part of the regent honeyeater project. The students will then assist with the planting of the seedlings later in the year.
Don’t forget Year 8 Camp begins on the 29th of February for 8/1, 8/2, 8/5 and 8/6. The second Camp will begin on the 5th of March for 8/3, 8/4 and 8/7. We are all looking forward to the adventures ahead.
