Please click here to view the updated College Uniform Policy. Please note that no uniform items have been added/subtracted, this is just an update of the guidelines in place, as well as an explanation of the rational and expectations of the College.
Please be reminded that it is the responsibility of all parents/guardians to provide detailed medical information for their child via PAM, in order for the College to fulfil its duty of care:
An ASCIA Action Plan for Anaphylaxis (red plan) should be completed by the student’s medical practitioner and a colour copy provided to the school.
The ASCIA Action Plan for Anaphylaxis (red plan) must outline the student’s known severe allergies and the emergency procedures to be taken in the event of an allergic reaction.
Parents must also provide the school with an Adrenaline Auto Injector (eg Epipen) and College approved Medbag as soon as their child has been diagnosed as being at risk of anaphylaxis. These will be kept in a secure location on campus and will be taken to excursions and camps as required.
An ASCIA Action Plan for Allergic Reactions (green plan) should be completed by the student’s medical practitioner and a colour copy provided to the school.
The ASCIA Action Plan for Allergic Reactions (green plan) must outline the student’s known mild to moderate food, insect or medication allergies and the emergency procedures to be taken in the event of an allergic reaction.
Parents must provide the school with an Asthma Action Plan completed by the student’s medical practitioner. The plan must outline the student’s known triggers and the emergency procedures to be taken in the event of an asthma flare-up or attack.
In addition to the asthma action plan, parents must ensure that their child has access to their personal supply of asthma medication and a spacer during school hours.
Students from Product Design and Technology – Wood were expected to redesign an existing product as part of their Unit 1 assessment. Students were given the theme of time and were asked to research existing products that will fulfil the need that was given to them. They had to redesign their own product to meet Outcome 1, and then build their product to meet Outcome 2.
Students worked exceptionally well to follow timelines in order to have the piece completed by the end of term two. The LRC is currently displaying the work of some of our very talented students who should be very proud of the work they have produced.
The following students have their pieces on display in the LRC:
Our Presentation Ball participants are progressing well as they prepare to make their debut during the month of August. During the term break, rehearsals at Merrimu Receptions provided an opportunity for the students to become familiar with these new surroundings and practice their dance technique in the venue where they will showcase their new skills. The committee members, dance instructors, supervising staff and students are working together to ensure the experience is successful and enjoyable. We look forward to celebrating with the participants and their families.
On Tuesday, we were visited by the acapella group Whim ‘n Rhythm from Yale University in the United States. Founded in 1981, Whim ‘n Rhythm is composed of thirteen senior undergraduate women who represent a diverse array of academic majors and professional interests. They perform a dynamic repertoire of student-arranged music, including everything from current pop to jazz, folk, and classic rock. Each summer, the group embarks on a ten-week world tour, bringing its music to audiences across the globe.
We were lucky enough to have the ladies run a workshop with our Cantabile students, and also performed for us at lunchtime in the Auditorium.
