Boarding House

Over the past few weeks, our girls have been buckling down by maintaining their studies in the homeward stretch to the holidays. While most evenings have been spent at sport or preparing for assignments, the girls have taken the opportunities to unwind and have fun on the weekends with boarding socials, cooking and other rec activities.

With Term 1 coming to an end, there’s definite excitement in the air for the holidays. Let’s keep it up girls, not long to go now!

Our very first Boarding Choir!

20 girls from the Boarding House sang the National Anthem at the State Conference for ICPA (Isolated Children’s Parents Assoc) at Rendezvous Hotel, Scarborough. A big thanks to Tracey Schlink, Cassandra Beeck and Michele Hay for helping to organise this.

Amanda Young Fair

A lot of effort went into the costumes for the Amanda Young Fair. Our girls found inspiration from childhood movies and TV shows to create a colourful array of outfits for the dress up day. A donation was kindly accepted in exchange of dressing up to help raise funds and awareness for the Amanda Young Foundation.

Boarders hit the gym

After school, the girls have access to the school gym for an hour of music, fun & sweat. The girls have been improving their health and wellbeing with enjoyable and motivational group workouts. They are absolutely loving the after-school energy release and are already seeing results.

Parent Teacher Interviews – save the date

Wagin Woolorama

Our Enrolments office recently hit the road for the Wagin Woolorama Field Day. Our Registrar Courtney McPhee and Assistant Dean of Pastoral Care Kate Gillam enjoyed a great day at Wagin Woolorama meeting up with our Penrhos Old Girls and even enjoying a visit from local Politician Peter Rundle MLA. We look forward to connecting with our regional families in the Wheatbelt as we announce our next STEM Roadshow in May.
