Junior School News: Week 8, Term 3, 2018

Over the last few weeks, I have enjoyed attending many co-curricular activities, Saturday Rugby, Football, Basketball and Tournament of the Minds. At every single one of these events, the sense of community was overwhelming with parents, staff and boys living out one of the Touchstones in the Charter.

Inclusive Community – “Our community is accepting and welcoming, fostering right relationships and committed to the common good.”
