We have been very pleased with the transition back to on site teaching and learning. It feels extraordinary that it has only been a week. The boys have generally settled back into usual routine and process well. Thank you for your terrific support of your sons and the College.

As a Geography teacher – it is perhaps unsurprising that I am asked about climate change a great deal. On more than one occasion I have been confronted by people who are steadfast in their belief that climate change isn’t occurring or that the warming we are experiencing is part of the natural process of warming and cooling that has occurred over the 4+ billion years of our planet’s existence.

In the opening days of March, I, along with many in our community felt a sense of growing fear and anxiety as the realities of a worldwide pandemic became apparent. We looked on, feeling helpless, as our brothers and sisters overseas suffered. As panic grew in the world around us, I found a sense of calm in prayer, both private and communal. In the midst of confusion and anxiety I felt a sense of calm in the gift of faith and I hope this has brought comfort to you and your families also.
