From the Principal

Hello everyone, As always, it has been a very busy last two weeks of term. With the severe weather and heavy rain in the lead-up to the Winter Festivals, we had to make some major changes to the planned events. I would like to thank the teachers involved for their flexibility in working with the changed plans. I would also like to thank the parent community for being so understanding and supportive. Our Winter Festivals are an important opportunity to bring our school community together and it was not an easy decision to alter the event. Having said this, our students had a very deep and reverent experience of this beautiful event. We have included some photographs later in this bulletin. We will be including a clip with some of the lovely music and images of the senior festival on our website in the near future. This week we have been celebrating NAIDOC week at the school (a week early because of school holidays). We had a special opening of the week with our High School students on…
Hello everyone, I am writing this from Melbourne, where I am attending the Year 10 Camp. Every year I join some of our teachers and students on their camp. It gives me a great opportunity to spend time with our students and teachers, getting to know them all in a more relaxed setting. We bring our Year 10 students to Melbourne to give them a taste of city life; giving them an opportunity to learn how to find their way around a big city, visit some universities and tertiary institutions and experience some of the cultural life of the city. It is really enjoyable to watch the students working together to manage the money they are given to buy each meal - budgeting and working together to get the best value for their money. This is a taste of a possible life to come as university students in the future! Meanwhile, back at school, preparations are now in the final stages for our Winter Festivals. This year we are trialling a new format, with the Class One and Two children joining the Kindergarten…
Hello everyone, There has been a lot of activity around our school community over the last two weeks. We have had many students out on camps, excursions and sporting events with more planned in the coming weeks. It is important that our students have opportunities to interact with students from other schools, particularly as they get a little bit older. We always get such wonderful feedback about the way our students conduct themselves and our students tell us that they really enjoy these opportunities. Last weekend was a very busy weekend in the school, beginning with the wonderful bush dance on Friday night. The hall was beautifully decorated, the band played energetically, the food was delicious and everyone enjoyed a wonderful social evening. I particularly enjoyed joining some of our younger students in a lively progressive dance. Congratulations to the Class 5 parents for organising such a terrific event for our school community. On Saturday we had a RCM morning, with a lot of…
Hello everyone, It is hard to believe we are almost half way through the term. The cooler weather and the change in light as the sun's trajectory across the sky angles slightly closer to the horizon has an inner echo. The children are more settled in class and in the playground and the adults are enjoying the move to a slightly more contemplative and quiet mood. Preparations are well under way for our Winter Festival and the big news is that this year we will be bringing the Festival back home to our School. It is clear that the A&I Hall in Bangalow is too small for our school community and it is quite challenging to manage a reverent and peaceful festival in the wide open space of the adjacent oval (much as we have loved the beautiful Winter Festivals of the last few years). The College and Faculties have carefully considered how we can create an experience which is both appropriate to the children's stages of development and also allows us to have safe and appropriate numbers on…
Hello everyone, The term has got off to a lovely, calm start with our students enjoying the calmer atmosphere the cooler weather brings. Having said this, there is a lot of activity around the school with students attending a range of sporting events off-site, the Kindergarten Autumn Festival happening (a little late due to the severe weather at the end of last term) and planning well underway for several camps across the school. We are also well into planning for our Winter Festival. We have taken on parent and staff feedback from the last Winter Festival and will be making some changes to this year's festival. We will publish further information about this important event in the life of our school in the coming weeks. This week our new study group was launched. We are studying Steiner's "Kingdom of Childhood" lectures. These lectures form a wonderful, accessible introduction to the philosophy which underpins the education we offer. I really enjoy leading this study group each…
