It has been an absolute delight to welcome students back on campus this week. Their warmth, enthusiasm and excitement has created a positive vibe around our Junior School.
6 Indigo have shared words to describe how they are feeling about being back at school:
Congratulations to Mr Ben Meadley, who got engaged over the holiday period. We wish Ben and his fiancee Widad all the very best as they plan their future together.
Congratulations also goes to Mrs Audrey Coupe, who received a special mention in the Fitz Files (Sydney Morning Herald) over the weekend:
“Mrs Audrey Coupe. This lady from Waverley College Junior School has been the mainstay volunteer of the Australian Schools Rugby Union for over three decades, booking venues, taking minutes, making travel arrangements, writing letters, sorting points tables … the lot. Upon announcing her retirement she has just been made a life member. Well done, oh good and faithful servant of the game.”
As you are aware, the boys participated in a marble run challenge last week. The project was designed to enhance the boys’ problem solving, critical and creative thinking skills while ensuring that they have a much-needed break from technology. I would like to share some of the highlights with you below.
Max Nearne and Jack Richardson shared some wonderful photos that they captured of their local beaches throughout COVID-19. Jack captured the following image of Bronte Beach using a drone and Max captured Tamarama with a canon camera given to him by his mum.
News from the Learning Hub – Mrs Natasha Zivanovic
It was exciting to see and feel the enthusiasm, the joy and the optimism in the air at school this week as the boys returned to the Learning Hub.
We are currently in a period of transition. Many events in our community have been postponed, including the annual Book of the Year Awards and Book Week, which has been rescheduled for Term 4. However, the Junior School will celebrate Book Week 2020 in Term 3, Week 6. I am optimistic that our love for books and reading will be celebrated as a school community.
Look out for more information regarding the pop-up bookstore, author and illustrator visits at the beginning of Term 3.
