Kennedy Arts Cup 2021

On Wednesday 5 May, we held the annual Kennedy Arts Cup. After auditioning over 40 students, our finalists performed their pieces to an enthralled college audience. This event is a fantastic opportunity for our students who excel on the stage to showcase their talents for their peers and they certainly didn’t disappoint! All performances were outstanding in their own right, but we would like to acknowledge the place winners:

1st Place: Stephane Migui (Forrest, year 12) who impressed the audience as he  performed an original piece entitled “Love and Hate”.

2nd Place: Rachael Sanju, Nami Dickson & Arpitha Roy (King, year 11) who performed a beautiful rendition of “Creep” by Radiohead.

Study and Organisation Tips for Parents

Recently, the Research and Study Centre and the school psychologist did a presentation to parents of Year 11 students giving some practical tips for supporting their child in Senior School. The aim was to inform, empower, encourage and support parents in this journey utilizing well researched and current information.

2021 Kennedy Centre Update

What a year 2020 was. We are so glad that it’s a new year!

2020 saw our Centres close due to Covid-19 but it allowed us to refocus, rebalance and recharge. We did not allow the closures to stop us from connecting with our kids and communities and we launched a range of initiatives such as Remote Online Learning and feeding the community through Operation Lighthouse to stay in touch.

2021 Year 7 Orientation Day

It was great to meet all the 2021 Year 7 students at their Orientation Day on Friday 13 November. There were a lot of nerves as they were dropped off at the Lower Foyer, but as the day went on, it was a joy to see their confidence grow, as they start to feel more relaxed.

Easter Message – Hope Is Alive

 

We have arrived at Easter… and we celebrate this time as we do every year, as a global human community. I have been pondering what Easter over the centuries has looked like. Easter has happened during times of war, in times of famine, when the world has been less advanced as it is now, less global.

On Stress and Coping from the College Chaplain

World news is leaving us feeling more stressful at the moment, its predominately filled with virus stories but at this time it is leaving everybody feeling concerned. We feel it would be good to help everyone understand some of the dynamics that are at play within our children, and as you will see, within every adult as well.

March Memory Madness

Week 6 saw the return of the annual March Memory Madness, where students are encouraged to stretch themselves in a series of diverse, fun memory challenges.

From Monday to Thursday, students came into the Research and Study Centre before school to see if they could memorise ten items on the “Tray of the Day” – they then returned at Recess to list them accurately for a tasty reward and House Point.
