In the words of Plato, “Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” Sunday evening’s Gala Concert provided a wonderful opportunity for our community to enjoy the talent and performances of girls and Music staff. It was pleasing to see a number of the Boarders participating in vocal and instrumental performances and sharing their music with the audience.
Our rowers returned tired after a long day attending their regatta on Saturday and are looking forward to their next regatta and, finally, the Head of the River! Other girls enjoyed QGSSSA fixtures against St Margaret’s, bowling on Friday night and then the day at Sea World on Sunday! Life is full of action for our girls with plenty to do and join in.
I do encourage Boarders to involve themselves in sport, cultural and community activities in order to enjoy the opportunities of the well-rounded education offered at St Hilda’s School. Such healthy and challenging activity helps us become interesting people who are fit and confident and supports academic achievement.
We congratulate our Boarders who received Academic Awards at Assembly on Tuesday: Sophie Coleman, Annabelle Layt, Meg Johnstone, Maxine Moore, Isabella Garzolini, Elly Domrow, Emily Mitchell and Laura Nicholls. We are very proud of the girls’ achievements and they are all examples of students with a variety of interests and who engage in a number of non-academic activities, keeping themselves active and challenged, whilst efficiently managing their studies and achieving their goals.
The long-awaited Bush to Beach Bash has finally arrived! I look forward to meeting up with Boarders’ families and friends on Friday evening at what sounds to be a great night hosted by St Hilda’s and TSS BPSGs.
