Radcliffe House News

Dylan De Vries – Housemaster

Dear Radcliffe Community,

I hope everyone has had a safe, restful and enjoyable break. Term 3 was another successful term for Radcliffe House with many outstanding achievements, both with academics and co-curricular activities. Currently we are very well placed in both the Academic Shield and the Overall House Shield and there is a strong sense of purpose and belonging within the House.

I look forward to another successful term, albeit it a short one.

Please find below some information regarding Term 4. Of particular note is the upcoming House Supper. I have attached an eVite for your information. I realise the RSVP is the 4th October, which is really close, so please have responded via parent lounge by Monday 9th at the latest for catering purposes. In addition, any student who has not submitted their House Colours points need to do so by the end of this week at the latest so that awards can be finalised.

Also of note for Year 10 students and parents is the Year 10 Outdoor Ed. Camp. More details on this should have already been sent by the school, but if you have any queries, please contact me or Nick Stansbie, Dean of Students.
