Headmaster's Weekly Address

Dear Parents

It is the week of Camps – OAP and Music. On Monday morning, all Years 10 and 11 boys headed off from Heyington and Tooronga for the experience of the Year 10 Camino or one of the ten, “One Step Beyond”, Year 11 expeditions. Forty-seven, yes you read the number correctly, 47 of my colleagues are accompanying the boys and the expert outdoor activity providers. The benefit of the programs are increased exponentially due to the presence of our staff on these activities. The Years 7 to 9 Music Camp has nineteen staff attending and, consequently, I am sure the quality of that time away will also be first rate.

The final fixtures and events for summer sport are completed. Our Diving Team secured the APS trophy for the tenth consecutive year. Their success had, appropriately, a large quantity of hard training and we should never underestimate the expertise of our TIC, Mrs Elizabeth Howard. The Swimming Team were very successful in their competition, finishing a strong second, just 9 points behind Caulfield Grammar. Lawn Bowls won their competition, Cycling are State Champions once again and, on Friday evening last, in the cold and encroaching darkness, our Touch team won their competition.

I wish all a happy and Holy Easter and look forward to an energetic and successful Term II.

Congratulations to Angus Molden (Cricket) and Oliver Bytheway (Tennis) who were selected as part of the APS Summer Representative teams.
