Students return to school Tuesday 20th July 2021
I want to thank all of our students, families and staff for your support throughout the last week during the lock down, and what has been a different end to the Term than we hoped for. The COVID-19 pandemic, has presented us all with many challenges, we continue to overcome hurdles and are working together at the College to achieve the best outcomes for our students. I am pleased that we have been able to make the best of this situation and ensure your child’s safety and continuity of learning.
This term has seen us hold an ANZAC Assembly, run NAPLAN smoothly, our Performing Arts students have presented their Road Show, there have been many excursions for students, a Year 8 Lightning Carnival, various camps, auditions for next year’s Performing Arts intake, many sports events including Netball and AFL games, after school clubs, breakfast club, Year 10, 11 and 12 exams and of course our School Ball held at Optus Stadium which was an unforgettable night and I am so proud of our students who looked amazing, and behaved impeccably!
Many events have been postponed from this week including all of our NAIDOC events we had planned. Here is a list of events that have been rescheduled:
· NAIDOC week assembly deferred till Friday the 23rd.
· NAIDOC week VIP morning tea, deferred to Friday the 23rd July.
· Torres Strait Islander dance performance deferred TBA.
· Parent Night deferred till 26th July.
· RAC art exhibition deferred till the 22nd July.
We have taken a new approach with our Facebook page and this term have been giving our community regular updates including not only useful information about the running of the school, but sharing photos and stories about what our students have been doing, staff profiles, infographics, a weekly video update every Monday and much more. If you haven’t already “liked” out page, please do so!
I wish you a safe and healthy break. Take care of yourselves and your families. Although I won’t be here next term, I know that Stella and the staff at Cecil Andrews College are looking forward to seeing our students back relaxed and recharged for what I’m sure will be a wonderful Term 3 of learning!
