We finally made it! We have just finished our last week of online learning and what a journey it has been. Our students have shown remarkable commitment, focus and resilience during this time and need to be commended. 

You can view the important ‘Return to Campus’ information in the opening article by Mr Patrick Brennan. Please know that we will be doing everything we can to keep our students safe in order to return to face-to-face learning. In the Junior School we have assigned designated spaces for our students to play during break times, where our Years 5 and 6 students will be separated. This will be rotated so the students have equal time to use different areas of the school including the Library. 

Important points:

  1. Hand sanitiser will be widely available around the College.
  2. We have increased cleaning measures, with high touch and high traffic areas being cleaned regularly throughout the day.
  3. All students and staff will be required to wear a mask indoors. Please make sure your son enters the school with a mask each day.
  4. At this stage, there will be NO Saturday sport or Home Learning Club. We are awaiting further advice and will keep you updated about this.
  5. Transport — All public transport and school specials are due to run as timetabled.
  6. Canteen — For Week 4 and Week 5, no counter service. Online orders only through Flexischools. We will keep you updated if this changes.

Fun Friday Day Activity — Cardboard Carnival!

It was so amazing to see the amount of effort, enthusiasm and creativity in the games designed this week for the cardboard carnival activity. They looked like so much fun and reminded me of the Easter Show. I loved how so many students added excitement to their designs with their acting skills and backup music. I want to congratulate all students for their hard work. The following students were the winners for last week:

  • 5 Blue – Cooper Mott and Alex Jacques
  • 5 Gold – Freddie Leiper
  • 5 Orange – Max Mascioli and Jasper Lumsden
  • 6 Blue – Aidan Gray
  • 6 Indigo – Liam Walmsley and Jone Tuqiri
  • 6 Orange – Daniel Morrow
  • 6 White – Rafael Kupershteyn

Would you like to try this prize winning cardboard carnival magnet race? It was devised by Jasper Lumsden. So innovative!

Enter Freddie Leiper’s incredible prize winning cardboard carnival!

Year 6 Graduation

We need photos of your sons in Kindergarten!

As part of the Year 6 Graduation, I will be putting together a slideshow presentation that will showcase the students’ time at the Junior School. I would appreciate it if you could send through a photo of them on their first day of Kindergarten (or similar), as this will form part of the presentation.

If you could please send a labelled photo through to liturgy@waverley.nsw.edu.au by no later than Friday, 29 October (Week 4).

The Learning Hub Return to School

I’m looking forward to having students back in The Learning Hub. To abide by the NSW Health regulations, grades will be allocated specific days for the remainder of Term 4. This schedule is subject to change, as restrictions are eased in the College environment.
