Yesterday, all High School students gathered together in the Sylvia Brose Hall for the first time in six months to enjoy our first assembly of the year. Head of School Andrew Hill welcomed Year 12 to their new status as the senior class, reminding them that while the year ahead will be challenging, they will learn work habits and attitudes that will set them up for success in life beyond school. Each Year 12 was each presented with a flower from Guardians Yura & Brigitte in recognition of their commencement of their final year of schooling. Year 11 Captains were introduced in their new leadership roles, Duke of Edinburgh students who has achieved Bronze and Silver Awards were presented with their certificates by Duke of Ed Coordinator Donna Miller, and Head of Maths Rene Van Den Tol presented certificates for achievement in the national Maths Olympiad competition. The Assembly was rounded out with musical performances including Ian Munns performing Bach, a wonderful performance by Year 12's Minyu Vandenburg of “Someone Else’s Story” from the show CHESS, and the Glenaeon Big Band took the stage performing two numbers "It don't mean a thing, if it ain't got that swing" (Duke Ellington), and " (T.W.A) Trumpets with Attitude".
It was truly wonderful to gather in person, be together and share the Assembly and welcome our Year 7s for the first time.
