Mr Loane
Head of Campus

Production week of the play, Daisy Pulls it Off, is finally here and there is a buzz in the air. The Headmistress of Grangewood School for Girls, Miss Gibson, made an appearance at Assembly this week and gave us a glimpse of what to expect in the show. It promises to be a great production. The cast and crew are looking forward to entertaining us over three performances this week. The first show starts tonight, with a second on Friday and the final performance on Saturday evening. Tickets can be purchased at the TryBooking website.

During the same assembly, we heard from some of the French Exchange students about their time at Meriden and Sydney in general. Thank you to the families who hosted these students and for looking after them and giving them authentic experiences around our beautiful city. The girls boarded their flight earlier this week and are making their way home to Dax, France. Thank you also to Ms Teresa Alonso-Lasheras and Ms Priscilla Curran for their enthusiasm in organising and bringing this exchange program to life. We look forward to more exciting language exchanges in the future.

The Meriden Tennis community are also keenly anticipating the opportunity to defend the Tildesley Shield beginning on Wednesday 6 March. Players and coaches have been working hard and fine-tuning their skills and strategy for this IGSA tournament.

On Monday 4 March, members of the Meriden community are invited to join the Parents and Friends group for their monthly meeting, held on the second level of the GCMD at 6:00pm. All are welcome and the group would love to welcome some new families.

The first Amadeus concert of the year will take place on Wednesday 6 March at 6:00pm in the Wallis Auditorium. All are welcome and encouraged to come and enjoy an evening of highly skilful music performances.

Year 10 students turned up en masse to receive their Meningococcal vaccination last week, administered by a nursing team from NSW Health. It was pleasing to see many girls take up this opportunity.

When picking up your daughters from the Senior School campus later in the afternoon, the appropriate place to wait is either outside the main entrance on Margaret Street or in the Bell Garden. Please do not enter classrooms or learning spaces, such as the Library, to look for your daughter. A quick call or message to your daughter should suffice, and failing this, please look out for the School Caretaker, Ms Michelle Sutton, who can assist you in locating your daughter.
