And that’s a wrap! As Term 2 comes to a close, we can look back on all the achievements and activities that took place here at Kormilda College. This Term held a variety of exciting events including Athletics Carnival, Kormilda College Sony Foundation Children’s Holiday Camp, and many SRC successes.
Term 2’s Athletics Carnival was a wonderful but exhausting event. Although the day was hot and sunny, the field was a blur of House colours as everyone took part in the events and played their part in helping their team win. At the end of the day, however, mighty Baru reigned victorious and took home the title of Athletics Day champion. A special thank you goes out to all those who attended the event for making the day so enjoyable and successful. Also, we would like to give credit to all the Housemasters and House Captains for their outstanding efforts (and costumes) throughout the day.
We are also excited to announce that during the end of Week 11, some enthusiastic Year 11 and 12 students are taking part in the Kormilda College Sony Foundation Children’s Holiday Camp, which gives students the opportunity to embark on a journey of a lifetime – taking care of young campers with disabilities for three days. The Camp offers respite for these children’s parents, a fun weekend away for the campers and a life-changing opportunity for the students involved. Both Kiran and I took part in the Camp last year and can say it was an absolutely unforgettable weekend and life experience.
It has been a tremendous last few weeks for the Year 12s who have been organising and planning the camp, and all are very excited to see their hard work come to fruition. Kormilda College Sony Foundation Children’s Holiday Camp is just one of the many remarkable opportunities offered at Kormilda College.
It has been a huge Term for Kormilda College’s student leadership team. Through the commendable communication between SRC representatives and the student cohort, we as a team were able to identify positive improvements for the College. Firstly, through uniform surveys and discussion with teachers, black socks have now been included in the College uniform much to the delight of students. Also, with the joint efforts of both the catering crew and the leadership team, the cafeteria has now introduced a salad bar and free sauce with sausage rolls and meat pies. Other plans to introduce healthier options are also in the works and will hopefully begin to appear in the cafeteria throughout Semester 2.
On a final note we would like to wish everyone a safe and enjoyable semester break. We would also like to wish our Year 6’s who are travelling to Timor Leste a safe journey and we hope you make many happy memories whilst away. We look forward to seeing you all again in Term 3.
