Dear Boarding Families,
We have had a busy fortnight with lots happening around Boarding.
I was delighted to acknowledge two Grade 11 Boarding students who at the end of last year attended a Boarder Leadership Conference which was held in conjunction with Burn Bright.
The conference saw over 160 boarders from around the world participate and the feedback received was fantastic with the students rating the relevance and quality of speakers averaging 8.5 out of 10.
At Launceston Grammar we strongly believe in the importance of providing our boarders with the best opportunity to positively influence the boarding community well into the future. Mackenzie Grant and Skye Ellis Grade 11 boarders went on the school stage to receive their ABSA Boarder Leader Pin. This pin represents a unique acknowledgement of the influence our up-and-coming boarder leaders can have on the school community.
I am flying out this week to visit the Australian Boarding Schools Association in Brisbane. The aim of the visit is to go through the Australian Boarding Standards and consolidate this with Launceston Grammar documents. I am also visiting newly refurbished boarding houses to get some ideas for our refurbishment starting next year. I am hoping to bring back some great ideas we can use here at Launceston Grammar.
Enjoy the weeks ahead in the run up to the break.
Head of Boarding
