Mrs Sue Coffey
The term is coming to an end and as usual there is lots happening in and out of the college.
This has been Debutante Ball week and l had the pleasure of attending both balls on Wednesday and Thursday evenings. The year 11 students made their families and their teachers very proud. They were beautifully dressed, they had exceptional manners and their dance moves were amazing. The dance instructors were so pleased, watching them smile and observe the students helped me understand why they come back every year and put themselves through it. Mr Yarde , the VCAL team of students and teachers together with a mix of teachers help make these evenings such a success, they helped with the table arrangements, the decorative masks, the cheese platters, the flower wall, the Debutante seat and the program and tickets. Congratulations to everyone involved it was a wonderful event.
Next week 40 Year 11 and 12 students are heading to Central Australia. Ms Anders has coordinated this event and we look forward to hearing about their adventures and seeing their photographs when they return. The Wakakirri Grand Final is on Monday the 12th so only a week to go, l wish all the students well and look forward to seeing the performance. On the 14th of September l will be flying to China to visit our sister school for four days and then to participate in a Leading Asian Capable Schools Conference at the University of Commerce and Finance. The program involves ten days of learning about China, its history and culture as well as visiting high performing schools and some industries. I look forward to this and will share my learning with the community on my return.
Therefore, I will not write a piece for the next issue but l am sure the Campus Principals will keep you informed and let you know the outcome of Wakakirri before the holidays.
