Boarder Lines: 21 August 2020

It has been an unusual week with the Boarders being the only ones on site during a school day…along with the HSC Trial students of course.  A huge shout out to Mr Hekeik and Mr Graham for their supervision at break times of the Boarders, and encouraging the soccer games - even if they were quite robust at times, but they had lots of fun!  This last week has been a roller coaster for all involved.  The Boarders have trusted the Leadership Team and Boarding staff to provide them with the right amount of safety and security.  This could not have been done without a team.  This team consists of all Boarding staff, our fabulous casual Boarding staff, Boarder parents and the College Leadership Team - particularly Mrs Kenderes and Mrs Brooks, who came into Boarding to help out - so a personal thank you.

We have been making masks for the last few weeks in preparation for a time when they are worn more often, and we think they have turned out pretty well.  I know the Boarders have received many compliments on their masks when they are out and about, as have I.  If they didn’t take so long to make we could make a profit!!!

There have been lots of activities at night this week to give the juniors a break from their laptops.  Thankfully they missed the storm on Wednesday night and have some great photos to show for it.  Any time off from their screens is always valuable, so all life lessons they learn are going to be good ones.  If you have any ideas for activities please let me know, it is always good to have a stash of ideas ready to go.

Please stay safe, take care, be healthy and look after each other.

Yours in Boarding,

Ms Maryanne O’Donoghue
Director of Boarding
