What an action-packed ‘return to Boarding’ we have had! The energy of the girls has been tangible every day, and we welcomed back girls ready to take on what will be a short term full of work, effort, fun, celebrations, endings and beginnings.

We are so very proud of our Year 11s who have, as a year level, assumed leadership in Boarding and in the Day School. Whilst the statement that ‘all the girls are leaders’ can seem very cliché, it is true and we sincerely encourage all our Year 11s to embrace this term and next year and contribute to our Boarding community. Our community will be what you make it!

We are thrilled to note Prefects who are Boarders:

  • Head Boarder: Fiona Chen
  • Banksia House Captain: Maeve Dougherty
  • Karragaroo House Sports Captain: Anna Eddy
  • Melaleuca House Captain: Annabelle Layt
  • Prefects:
    • Angelina Brunskill
    • Maggie Cameron
    • Sophie Coleman
    • Phoebe Grosser
    • Kate Henning
    • Sigrid Mackenzie
    • Abigail (Abi) McLean
    • Jemima Powell
    • Molly Raff

And, School Captain, Edwina Thomson has also spent time as a member of our Boarding Community, so we are claiming Edwina as a Boarder too!

We wish all our Year 11s well as they embrace their roles as leaders, knowing they will enhance our community and contribute to our continual improvement; we thank our current Year 12s for their contribution to Boarding and our School and wish them well as they draw near to their next beginning.

Sunday night saw us holding our first full Boarding Meeting for the term, and we were treated to wonderful community sharing. We enjoyed Annabelle Layt talking with us about her love of life at home in ‘Kingy’, and Tyeka Ferguson-O’Shea sharing footage of her exchange in New Zealand – what a privilege to be part of girls supporting each other, learning about each other and appreciating each other.

Our major event for this term is our Boarding Christmas Dinner and we have a committee of girls who are planning its program – lots of excitement ahead. We are grateful to the BPSG for its sponsorship of this event in Boarding and look forward to sharing lots of photos with everyone.

Our Year 12s are counting down to ‘the end’, and eagerly awaiting their next steps post school. We encourage them to maintain their momentum, continue to work hard and enjoy their final school days!
