Dear Boarding families
Welcome back to what has shaped up to be a quick year. I can’t believe we are into our final term. The houses are upbeat with the return of our boarders who are fully charged from their holidays. It is great to have them back bringing our Boarding space to life with their energy. I guess it’s on us now to keep the balance and momentum up, so they see success in their studies and school life balance.
I managed to get home and watch the AFL Grand Final with my son, Josh at Optus Stadium. I am a big fan of every state hosting this event, it was an amazing atmosphere.
Lisa and I also went nightclubbing at Metros for an evening to watch Josh compete in Battle of the Bands for the university. Okay, so I’m 49 years old but man-o-man I felt like I was old being in a nightclub with 100s of uni students rocking out to 7 different bands, performing hit after hit. 10:30pm came around and I was ready for bed. We left at 12:00am after his band finished their set only to be woken at 2:00am to be told they had won.
We celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary for the next three days at Rottnest Island then came back to celebrate our daughter’s 21st birthday. All up, I was very fortunate to connect with family and friends.
I have returned satisfied the family is in a good space and refreshed from having all of us together. I can see the same is true for our boarders.
