Welcome to the 2017 school year

​​It was so lovely seeing the girls return to school this week. 

As we commence this new school year, I encourage all students to think seriously about what they can do to achieve academic success. 

Being able to confidently construct a written response or obtain a deep understanding of a new concept or competently perform a skill all require attention, hard work, practice and perseverance. 

I encourage the girls to make a commitment to the following:​

L – Listen to your teacher – they are here to help and support.

E – Engage in each classroom activity whole-heartedly.

A – Always act upon the verbal and non-verbal feedback you receive about your work.

R – Regularly revise your work – good study habits are the key to academic success.

N – Never give up! Enter each activity with a positive mindset and strive for continued improvement.

I am looking forward to working with you all in 2017.
