From Patrick Brennan, Deputy Head of College

Presentation Days

It is compulsory for all students from Years 5 to 11 to attend the Presentation Day. All students are to wear their full summer uniform. Prize winners must wear a blazer and tie.

Students is Years 5 to 6 whose parents do not attend will return to class for the remainder of the day.

Students in Years 7 to 11 will finish for the year at the conclusion of their respective event.

The Presentation Day will be a fitting way to conclude the school year. It will include awards, music, drama, prayer and video presentation on 2018.

Correct Uniform Every Day of the Year

One of the significant signs of change in recent years is the way that boys wear their uniform. It certainly sends a message about their intent, what they think about themselves and indeed the College.

On Friday I was disappointed by a small number of boys who decided to attend school in the incorrect summer uniform. All of these boys’ parents were called.

Any boys not in the correct uniform are required to obtain a uniform pass from the Wellbeing Centre and will require a note from home or a medical certificate where appropriate.

It is essential that boys are engaged and switched on every lesson of every day throughout the year. The last day of school for all is Wednesday, 5 December and our expectations on this day will be the same as the first day.

Representatives of the old boys, parents, staff and College Board have been working with a designer and supplier for an exciting refresh of the uniform. I can say that this design will include the option for boys to wear shorts. Early indicators suggest this will start to be rolled out late in 2019 after all members of the community have had the opportunity to provide feedback.
