Week 3 Update

Mr Andrew Hawkins – Deputy Headmaster and Head of Senior School 

Our heartfelt thanks goes out to all those that assisted with the boys affected by the gastro virus over the last few days, particularly here on the Senior Campus. We are not completely out of the woods but things seem to be settling down. For the boys new to boarding it wasn’t what we were expecting for them or their families but with the assistance of Queensland Health we were able to contain the virus and care for the boys affected.

I would personally like to thank our Health Centre Team on both campuses, Alliance Catering, Madisons Cleaning, our Boarding Staff, and our HR Manager that put her mum hat on and assisted right across the weekend. On behalf of the School I would also like to publicly thank Carestaff Nursing Services Pty Ltd who have worked around the clock and have been amazing in caring for our boys.

Changes to this week’s calendar include:

  • At this stage Midday Chapel/House Meeting schedule remains as per the timetable
  • House Swimming has been postponed – a new date will be announced in the next few days but will most likely be next Wednesday
  • Day House Welcome Chapel Services for WAL, TUR, SUR and MEL on Tuesday evening have been cancelled
  • Assembly this Thursday has been cancelled and we will repeat Wednesday Period 4 on Thursday. The Scholar’s Assembly will run next Thursday February 15.
  • The Year 7 Council Chapel Service on Wednesday has been postponed
  • The P & F Welcome Cocktail Party will occur this Friday night
  • Year 11 and 12 Information nights will go ahead as per the calendar

You will have received a Cyber Safety Newsletter last week from the school and I encourage you to read the newsletter as it provides parents with a number of resources in the cyber ‘space’.
