On the back of Reconciliation Week it was heartening to hear our Year 6 students talk in Assembly about their inquiry into and conversation around truth telling leading into Australia’s Voice Referendum. The concept that stood out for me in what Shrihan, Max and James spoke about was truth. Our school values guide us to pursue truth that we might live lives of integrity; this means, we are honest and have strong moral principles; that we are led by truth to engage with God, the world and others with courage and kindness.

It is excellent to hear and see that this isn’t just something our school website says we do, but is the reality of the conversations our students are having with each other here at school.

Grandparents and Special Friends Day 

It was a joy to see students welcome their guests into their classrooms at our Junior School Grandparents and Special Friends Day last week. Students relished sharing their School and their learning with visitors. The boys also loved introducing their teachers and friends to their grandparents. With students spending upwards of 35 hours per week at School, they were incredibly eager, and proud, to share such a significant element of their life with guests.

The impact that grandparents and extended family and friends have on building community around children can’t be underestimated. My gratitude extends to all grandparents, regardless of whether they could join us on Thursday. Our students wouldn’t be the humans they are if it wasn’t for the grandparents who came before them.
