Dear Boarding families,
Welcome to the half-way point in the term. A time where our boarders have settled into owning their space around the Boarding house and new and old staff are building relationships and getting routines going.
International Women’s Day
This week we celebrated International Women’s Day; Launceston Church Grammar School Boarding is very proud of the women who are a part of our Boarding house community. This year’s Boarding Captain is Olivia John, a Grade 12 student from Flinders Island, who when leaving school would like to follow in her father’s footsteps and become a regional GP.
Victoria Monson is another student leader who earned the respect and votes from both staff and students to be our Vice Captain of Operations within Boarding. She is from the coastal town in the north of Tasmania called Bridport. Along with these two leaders, we have the heartbeat of our Boarding house which comprises of a group of Grade 10 and 11 girls. From our youngest boarder, a Grade 6 girl from Flinders Island to our oldest Grade 12, our Girls’ Boarding house is a talented and vibrant group of young women within a co-educational Boarding experience. This is led by Ms Vandervelde and her amazing team of dedicated women mentors and tutors providing an environment for our boarders to feel safe and thrive in a well-balanced pastoral system.
I wish everyone a safe long weekend and hope you enjoy time as a family. I look forward to catching up with you on Tuesday afternoon from 4:00pm onwards.
Head of Boarding
