We have had a busy fortnight starting with the Grade 11/12 Boarders Ball taking place at Scotch Oakburn College. The night was well attended by our seniors as they enjoyed dancing and socialising to a live Boarders Band and DJ. Grazing plates, Cold rock ice cream along with the traditional Domino’s pizzas was on offer during the evening for all to enjoy. I was really happy that we were able to get this off the ground and join forces to allow our Boarders to enjoy an event like this.
Equally, the Grade 10s dressed up and were able to sit down and have a formal dinner along with some dancing and socialising through the evening. I dropped in briefly while they were eating and from the ones, I spoke to they not only looked amazing but were really enjoying themselves.
We said farewell to both Olivia and Emily Archer last week as they had their last night in boarding before moving into their new house as the family relocated from King Island to the mainland. The girls are staying on as day students at Grammar and I know Olivia is excited to be able to ride her horses again each day.
I met an Alumni today Tyson Wood, fresh on leave from HMAS Stirling Garden Island in WA. It was great to meet the great man whom I have heard so much about from Mum and Dad as well as sister Em and our staff TJ. We both had some stories to tell about our Defence Force experiences in WA and in particular Garden Island. Wow, he is a dead ringer for his old man!!
The long weekend is coming up next Thursday, so please get your leave in by Tuesday at the latest so we can plan our bus runs to support your child getting on and off buses and planes.
