Hello everyone and welcome back! We trust you all had a relaxing holiday and are ready for another busy year.
The year started at full speed with House Swimming Trials commencing in Week 1 and each House readying their swimmers to compete in the always exciting annual Inter-House Swimming Carnival. Franklin House achieved their hat-trick of wins in this field last year so every House is hungry as ever to knock them off their pedestal.
As well as the excitement in the pool, there is also activity in the Performing Arts Theatre stirring. The House Plays auditions commence and each House is ready to battle it out on stage in the House Plays Festival. A personal favourite of ours, these student-directed plays are guaranteed to have you in stitches so we strongly encourage you to head to the Performing Arts Theatre in Week 6 for a laugh.
Later in the busy term an exciting event is the Celebration of Literature, which brings together some of the best authors in the country to share their stories and inspire another generation. There will be literature, music and food across the three-day festival, making it one of the most highly anticipated events of the year.
In Week 3 the Year 7s are the first to head off on camp to Mount Tamborine, which is set to be a week of enjoyment with many new friendships being made. They are then followed by the Year 8s and 9s in Week 8, who are heading off for a fun-filled week developing their problem solving skills as they orientate themselves around the bush land and discover the challenges of living in a tent.
This term is certainly a busy one, however we urge you to take as many opportunities as you can. Finally, we would like to say how grateful we are to have been given the opportunity to lead the College this year as Captains and if you need any assistance we are always in our common room to help you.
Best of luck for Term One.
