Message of the Week

Welcome to week 19

Congratulations to Lauren McMaw, Year 9, for her successful clarinet audition for the National Youth Concert Band.


The NYCB is an exciting and challenging music group for wind, brass and percussion players aged 12 to 18. 


Lauren will be joining talented musicians of a similar age and calibre to develop their skills and perform together.


Good luck to the Under 16 netball team for the Regional Final this week:

Theme for the Week

Sometimes, the small things make a big difference.  This week, we’re reminding students of the importance of getting to lessons on time and being ready to learn:


Golden Antler Winners

Every week, the tutor groups with the highest number of 5s (for great attitudes to learning) are awarded a Golden Antler trophy.  Following the award of the trophy, the tutor arranges for a celebratory photograph to be taken.  It is then displayed around school.


Last week, the Lower School Golden Antlers winner was … 

… 7C1.  Well done to the Cromwell students who earned the highest number of 5s last week and are currently chasing 7W1 and 7M1 – just five points between these three tutor groups at the top of the table.


And winner of the Middle School Golden Antlers was …

… 9W1.  Well done for beating 9P1! 

Looks like they’re not too happy about it …  


Previous winners:

9P1, missing the antlers?

7C1, in festive mood before Christmas

Hot Choc Friday

Celebrating members of our school who go over and above.

Sadly, no Hot Chocolate Friday photograph from last week – watch this space next week …
