Dear Boarding Families
As we start our holidays we are using this time to freshen up a few boarding spaces. Our cleaners are also hard at work cleaning down surfaces and vacuuming floors. The last week of term saw students packing up their gear in order to de-clutter their living spaces. Some students will change rooms next term so this is a great opportunity to see what really needs to stay and what can go home.
This term we have celebrated some of our students leaving us, some new ones entering our boarding home as well as some birthday celebrations. The exam period is over and the old saying the “que is in the rack” applies to some of our students. I find it takes a few days to unwind from a term, so please be mindful if your son or daughter does not give you much in the first few days of being home, they are just getting over a long term.
My wife has her traditional list of jobs for me around the house as the break begins, so it was bitter-sweet to hear WA went into a snap 4-day lock-down. Although it has been 11 weeks since I last saw her in the flesh, I get a few extra days to do what most of our students will do and just relax before picking up the tools and punching through that long list.
