Coles...Woolworths...Aldi...mandarins, bread, luncheon...it all starts again! “C’mon everybody, up you get - it’s school time”, is the call made by many parents at this time of the year and the response from some children is “Hooray”, and yet for others, “Oh no, not school again!”. Whatever the case is, I’m sure your job as a parent has now kicked into another gear altogether. Go super parents!
There are some new super students who have joined the Heritage College family just this term too. We would like to welcome Tasharni (Year 8), Kingston-Lebron (Year 2), Hailey (Year 2) and Lavon-James (Prep) who have joined us this term. We hope you have all had a great start to your term here too!
Did you know that in many ways, school is like this lunch box. It’s contents are lovingly prepared by someone and then packaged up for the child to enjoy. Sometimes the children who access their lunch boxes have no idea what is in store and are pleasantly surprised by the contents and others know exactly the content but always look forward to it anyway. Admittedly, there are times when a parent will place something that is really challenging for a child to eat but is really beneficial for the child’s health. This may not be a welcome piece of food but a really necessary one!
This term at Heritage College we will continue a myriad of fun learning opportunities to enjoy, for students from Kinder, all the way to Year 12! Admittedly, there are going to be some challenges also in the learning. Sure, it may not be something a student may want to digest or even practice, but it will be beneficial for the student’s academic health!
Teachers have some exciting features in store for your children, such as: swimming lessons, Year 6 dinner, Year 12 formal dinner, Year 9 Solo camp, Prep orientation days, end of the year speech nights for both campuses and more exciting yet challenging learning happening inside the classrooms. So, what surprise is waiting for you in your student learning lunch box? Let’s enjoy the learning together, that has been so lovingly prepared and packaged for each child.
