I would like to wish you all a wonderful break and I hope having the boys home is as much a pleasure for you as it is for them to be back with you. Today Donna and I spoke to them about doing their share around the home during this period. I hope they carry this through.
I look forward to seeing them all back on Monday 9th October for Boarders and Tuesday 10th for the Day students.
The Yr-10 Agriculture class visited Canoelands orchard to study beekeeping and orchard management.
The boys donned beekeeping equipment to look at bees closely and had a tractor trip around the orchard. Thank goodness no-one was stung but the epipen was ready! The boys were well behaved and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
Good luck to all the boys representing the College at the annual GPS Athletics on Saturday. The boys have been tremendous in the manner they have undertaken this especially after coming straight out of a heavy winter sport program. We wish them every success and enjoyment for the day.
The bulk of us will leave SJC in Blues at 9.00am. We will return at approximately 4.00pm and the Rally will commence at 5.00pm. Boys should be ready to leave for the weekend by 5.45 – 6.00pm.
