Earlier in the term the 2017 NSW Stem awards were announced by our Director of Learning and Teaching Ms Elizabeth Watson. At assembly today we acknowledged the top two place-getters who were both Waverley College students – 1st Place Rocco Evans, 2nd Place William Davison. Their projects were highly impressive.
Term 1 Concluding
Boys were encouraged at assembly today to finish the term strongly and keep the length of the term in perspective. They were reminded that many of their teachers and parents went to school when there were only three terms and term lengths were more than fourteen weeks long. Eleven weeks is a long term but our expectations for our students’ attitude to learning and behaviour are exactly the same as they were for the first week of term. Please encourage your son to maintain all the good habits we know will give him the best chance to perform at his best – good sleep, diet, hydration and a positive mindset.
Erebus International who are assisting the College with the collaborative process of developing the College’s next strategic plan are conducting initial focus groups over the next couple of weeks across all key stakeholder groups – parents, students, teaching staff (junior and senior) support staff and Old Boys. Thank you in advance for your assistance and time. There will be ongoing opportunities to be involved in the process.
