Bosco Campus News

Welcome back to Term Two. Over the past three weeks it’s been pleasing to be able to see our Bosco students engaged in two very different but equally important whole school events – the House Athletics Carnival, and the ANZAC Day Remembrance Service.

We were blessed with a perfect day for House Athletics. Our Year 12 students chose some very interesting yet entertaining costumes, and likewise gave their best efforts on the field and track as well.  A great day was had by all, and it was a pleasurable way to begin the school term.

On an equally impressive, but more sombre occasion, was the conduct of our students at the ANZAC Day Remembrance service. It was a service at which we had the opportunity to collectively hold in our thoughts the memory and sacrifices of so many men and women who have fought for Australia.

At a time where the world’s peace is being challenged, it was a good opportunity to enable the college to reflect upon our gratitude and values. The respect with which all of the students conducted themselves was pleasing and appropriate, and I commend them on it.  

With the move to winter uniform, staff are spending considerable time reminding students to wear their uniform correctly. We, and I am sure all parents, would rather that our time was spent on learning and teaching, so I ask for what support you can give at home on the following matters:

Skirt Length for girls is to be at the knee. If any need adjustment, please address this over the weekend
The blazer is to be worn as the outer garment to and from school each day
Ties are to be tied, with the top button done up, and the shirt tucked in.

Raincoat and Spray Jackets are two separate entities.

The spray jacket is and always was part of the sports uniform, it is not to be worn with the college uniform on any occasion.

The new college raincoat, can be worn when it is physically raining. It is not to be worn, as part of the uniform on a daily basis.

I thank you in advance for your support on these minor issues, but issues that detract from everyday learning and teaching.

Before we know it, exams will be upon us. Students should be adequately preparing themselves to perform to the best of their abilities. Please have this conversation with your child and assist them in preparing and maintaining a study timetable.
