It is common to hear students and colleagues counting down the days till the end of term. Earlier this term, Year 12 students were counting down the days to their final classes, and then to their final exam.

In addition to the religious significance of the Christmas holiday, the end of the academic year, length of the holiday and expected warmer weather add to the anticipation of the end of this term.

Before starting their holiday, our 2023 Year 11 and Year 12 students attend two days of classes in their subjects for next year. As well as providing an overview of students’ chosen subjects, some work is set for the holidays. While not a focus for the holiday, I’m sure many of our students share the enthusiasm I still remember when first opening the English novels I would read over the summer in preparation for the new academic year. Now, as a teacher, I enjoy the opportunity the long holiday presents to spend some time planning for the year ahead.

This Wednesday, our Year 11 students spent the morning together filming several segments for their Year 12 formal video. On the cusp of being our 2023 Year 12 students, this was a wonderful opportunity for them to come together and look forward to one of the highlights of their Year 12 experience.

I trust there are many things to look forward to over the coming holiday and wish everyone a relaxing, joyful and refreshing Christmas holiday.
