I joked to someone the other day that I don’t remember March at all!

It seems so long ago, and with the emergence of COVID-19 it was a flurry of coping, adapting, improvising and adapting again. It was difficult, and frustrating and scary. And yet, we came through it, we learned, we grew and in some ways we are even better for the experience.

As the year finally draws to a close, I would like to extend my thanks to all of our parents for their support and partnerships with their sons in their learning. I thank the boys for their humour and persistence. And I thank our teachers and staff members for their immense expertise and world-class resilience.

Lastly, I would like to thank the entire community for making me feel so welcome in my first year as Deputy Principal.

I hope that you all have a peaceful and holy Christmas and head into the New Year ready for new opportunities and adventures.
