No Recommencement of Winter Co-curricular Season
Welcome back to all students and families to the start of Term 3. Under the current restrictions we will not be re-commencing the last 3 weeks of the Winter co-curricular season from next week. Once we have further information provided by NSW Health and the Association of Independent Schools, we will communicate regarding a potential start date, and if there are any cancellations, adjustments or postponement of activities. We will also make a decision on presentation evenings and award assemblies over the next couple of weeks.
Physical Health and Wellbeing: House Points Challenge
In the meantime it is essential that all students and their families maintain their physical health and wellbeing through a range of activities. As we did in 2020, we have a House Points Challenge website that has a wide range of activities that students and their families can participate in, that will also allow them to gain points for their Houses.
We will also be posting recommended activities from Mr Jeremy Roff each day in the daily notices where students can undertake appropriate exercises to improve fitness and skills. All students are encouraged to undertake at least 60 minutes of physical activity each day and this is absolutely essential whilst learning from home.
I also strongly recommend that all students get at least 8-9 hours of effective sleep every night as well as ensuring they are maintaining a healthy diet and hydrating throughout the day.
I am looking forward to seeing all of our students contribute to their Houses as well as undertake some important and fun activities.
Years 5-12 House Athletics Carnival an Enormous Success!
At the end of Term 2 we also had our Years 5-12 House Athletics Carnival at ES Marks. It was a wonderful way to end the term and I want to thank all students, parents and in particular our wonderful staff for a great day. I also want to congratulate Mr Damian Thompson and Lacey House for taking out the 2021 House Athletics Shield.
