Our Japanese visitors have been here for just over a week now and are really appreciating their Northpine Experience. As always, they enjoy the fact that our students are so welcoming and this makes their interaction enjoyable. One more week of fun before we wish them a safe trip home.
In just over two weeks, on the morning of 22 August our Yr 10 and 11 students will be leaving on their camps. This year both groups will be visiting Sydney, Canberra and the snowfields. They will arrive back on Friday 31 August after ten days of fun.
Yr 10 Students and Parents, please remember to join us on Wednesday night for the Careers Expo and QCE Information night. The information shared will be invaluable as you prepare to make choices for Yr 11 and 12.
A number of our students will be competing in the District Athletics Carnival this week. We wish them much success and congratulate them for being elected to compete at this level.
The College will be closed for the EKKA break from Monday 13 to Wednesday 15 August.
School will recommence at the usual time on Thursday morning 16 August.
A big thanks to Ms Sykes and her team for preparing and presenting ‘Voices in the Crowd’, 6 true stories of resilience from our community. Those who were there were touched by the stories and appreciated way they were told by the students. Congratulations to the actors, the stage hands and the many other wonderful people who helped make the program a success.
I hope you enjoy the extra-long weekend and are able to spend some family time together.
-Mr Graham Baird, Principal
