A wonderful weekend in boarding
We've enjoyed a busy and fun-filled first weekend back in boarding. On Friday night, the girls engaged in some creative ambition during their first ‘Friday Unplugged’ evening for the term – a time when technology is left behind and interaction is key. To celebrate the school's musical, The Little Mermaid, the boarders explored their creative genius. They were each given a piece of cake and with that, were to work as a team to create an under-the-sea-themed masterpiece. They did not disappoint! Awards were given for best teamwork, best cake and best story.
On Saturday, the Year 9 boarders, together with our exchange girls, explored the sights of Sydney. The perfect tour guides, Year 9 took the opportunity to showcase our glorious home. They walked across the Harbour Bridge and visited The Rocks Markets. The sun was out and there wasn't a cloud in the sky. What a great introduction to our beautiful city.
On Saturday night, the Years 11 and 12 boarders enjoyed a ‘girls' night in’ as they shared dinner together in Wheeldon House. A cosy and warm evening with some much welcomed comfort food – can't go past a good lasagne and good it certainly was! What a great way to wind down after their first week with good company, good food and some catching up with ‘neighbours’ and friends.
On Sunday lunchtime the beautiful weather continued and Year 8 couldn't resist maximising their time in the great outdoors. They enjoyed a lunch in the sun and celebrated the beautiful Sunday weather. After their Quiet Hour, they joined Year 7 in a games afternoon on the oval – another opportunity to spend time with each other, check in with their ‘buddies’ and exert some energy and laughter. Who doesn't love a good weekend?!
