Head of Middle School

I shared a wonderful story at Assembly last Friday of three Middle School boys who had birthday parties recently. On their invitations they asked their guests to join them for an afternoon of celebration and they each requested that no gifts were to be given. Instead, if guests wished to, they could donate some money and the boys would then forward the funds on to a charity of their choice. This is what they did and between them added almost $1000.00 to our Nepal Earthquake Appeal. When we hear stories such as this it is a heartening feeling knowing there is another cohort, another generation, following in the footsteps of those who are listed on honour boards, plaques and memorabilia throughout the College recognising, selflessness, compassion and generosity.

In closing, thank you to our Music Staff who combined brilliantly last week with the Middle Years Guitar Ensemble, Middle School Orchestra, Middle School Concert Band, Middle School Chamber Ensemble and the Scotch Youth Voices to present another wonderful Junior/Middle School Autumn Concert.
