​Thank you to everyone who made last Friday’s Twilight Festival such a wonderful success! In particular I would like to acknowledge the work of Festival Coordinator and PFA Vice President, Mrs Catriona Minney, whose vision, energy and incredible amount of work, was instrumental in bringing about such a fantastic event.

Junior School Production, Twilight Festival and Vale Fred Hyde: Congratulations to the cast and crew of the Junior School Production, The Little Mermaid, who thrilled us with their colourful and polished performances last weekend.

​On Saturday 5 November, after months of rehearsals and preparation, our Years 4 to 6 students will perform in our Junior School Production of The Little Mermaid. For some girls, it will be their first time performing on stage on front of a real audience and we wish them, and indeed all the girls, well as they enjoy this foray into show business!

​This week we bid our final farewell to the Class of 2016. We have recognised them at formal assemblies, watched them toss their hats off the Mansion and been moved at their Valedictory service yesterday afternoon as they left the Cultural Centre symbolically carrying their light out into the world, ready to shine.

​Rituals are a helpful way to make meaning and to demonstrate our values in a formal way and at this time of year, as we prepare for our Year 12 students to finish, head into the end of the academic semester and begin to elect leaders for 2017, rituals abound!

​It is always especially delightful to return home when you have been away, and this has been my experience returning to Lowther Hall this term after visiting our sister school in Japan during the September break. I was privileged to travel with Ms Tracy Healy to join the Senior School study tour

​Congratulations to all involved in this week’s Annual Music Concert at the Recital Centre. I was immensely proud of the girls for their fine performances – a reflection of the hard work and dedication that they bring to their individual music learning and the commitment they have to the ensembles in which they participate.
