Wednesday 16 December saw our remaining Year 7 to 10 students attend their final assemblies. The students were separated into two groups, the Year 7 and 8 and Year 9 and 10 cohorts. Reuben Penny and Trent Woods presented the Acknowledgement of Country – thank you. Ms Lesley Wintle gave her Principal’s address reflecting on our very unusual year, and encouraged kindness to others and self over the holiday break. Our many award winners were celebrated – the Dux of each year group, the Principal’s awards, NXplorers awards, the creative writing ‘My Place’ awards, the HASS PAST award, and various subject and endeavour awards. The final item in both assemblies was a music performance by our talented students – thank you to Jet Hartig, Zachary Wills, Yahli Carbonne, Flynn Costa and Samuel Hatswell. Thursday 17 December was our last day of school, and we look forward to welcoming all of our students back to school on Monday 1 February 2021.
