New Start Date for Term 3
Please note a slight change in term dates brought about by a sudden shift to remote learning at the end of Term 1. As a result of students learning from home that final week, instead of being on site at the College or away on camps, we are bringing students back two days earlier at the start of Term 3.
The first day of Term 3 for students is now Thursday, 23rd July. This week will be known as week ‘0’ (zero) and will be a Week A. The following week will be Week ‘1’ B and so on. The last day for Term 3 is the expected Friday, 25th September.

changes to drop-off and pick-up, commencing Monday, Week 9 (22nd June).

Recommended Holiday Reading
The Gonski Institute for Education, a group set up by UNSW Sydney to, among other things, bring about positive change in young people’s lives through education, is wanting to help every child reach their full potential. They recognise that parents and caregivers play a crucial role in a child’s learning and development journey.
The Institute has developed parent guides to support parents/caregivers through a range of issues related to your child’s education that you may find helpful.
The resources, developed by Dr Amy Graham (Gonski Institute for Education Research Fellow), are designed to provide quality, up-to-date information for parents and carers. The guides combine translated research with practical tips for parents/caregivers to use with their own child. Topics range from digital device use, to social and emotional skills, play and transitioning to high school, among others.
