Dr Benn
Head of Junior School

It was wonderful to see the girls return refreshed from their holidays, ready for an exciting term of learning. Students in Years 3 to 6 will participate in a variety of outdoor education activities during the camps in Week 3. Camps provide students with opportunities to participate in challenging, recreational activities and grow in independence. Parents should let their daughter’s class teacher know of any concerns their child may have so that the teacher can provide an appropriate level of reassurance.

JSA Annual General Meeting

The JSA Annual General Meeting will be held in the Selim Library on Tuesday 17 October, at 8:00am. Election of office bearers will take place and all parents are warmly invited to attend the meeting.

Term 4 Events

I would like to draw your attention to some special events in Term 4.

  • Tuesday 7 November – Junior School Ensembles Concert, Wallis Auditorium, 6:00pm.
    The Music ensembles and choirs will perform.
  • Friday 1 December – Pre-Kindergarten Christmas Celebration, Lingwood Campus, 9:30am – 10:30am.
    Parents are warmly invited to join the children for this special celebration.
  • Monday 4 December – K-2 Christmas Concert, Wallis Auditorium, 6:00pm.
    The concert will involve every child from Kindergarten to Year 2.
  • Wednesday 6 December – Junior School Prize Giving Ceremony, Wallis Auditorium, 9:00am.
    All Kindergarten to Year 6 students will attend and each Year 6 girl will be individually acknowledged.

The teachers have spent the non-term time planning excellent learning experiences for the girls. The teaching and learning will continue until the end of term because we don’t “wind down” in Term 4 at Meriden! Families are asked to prioritise attendance at school when planning vacations, as requests for holiday leave during term time will not be granted.
