Welcome to an exciting year of learning, leading and serving! 2018 is already shaping up to be a significant year with the opening of our Senior School and our 80 years of education celebrations. Please take the time to read all the following information very carefully to assist you and your son/s in settling into school next week. All this information is also available via the College App. I recommend you check the App and your subscriptions to Notices to ensure you don’t miss important messages from your son’s teacher.

On Tuesday 23 January 2018 your son’s homeroom teacher will be working in the classroom from 1:00pm to 2:30pm. We extend an invitation to you and your son to come to the College during that hour and a half to meet informally for a short period with the teacher. This time may help to settle any nerves your son may have about the first day of school and you are encouraged to bring your son’s school books into the classroom.
On the first day, Wednesday 24 January, students are to wear their day uniform to school. This includes the striped shirt, shorts, College hat, long socks and black shoes. Boys do not need to wear their tie or suitcoat. Teachers will inform boys on which day they are to wear their sports uniform. Year 6 have specialist day on Wednesdays and will need to wear their sports uniform on the first day of school.
