This week in boarding saw a special annual event, the much anticipated Valentine's Day dinner. Girls dressed imaginatively, and there were prizes as well as a lovely meal of the Boarders' choice. They enjoyed a beautiful chicken curry, heart shaped ice creams and a sparkling apple drink.
The dining room was a sea of pink and red with the decorations made by the Boarding Committee and junior boarders. The Boarding Committee put in many hours of preparation and the night was a great success. There were prizes for the best dressed and spot lucky prizes. Many day staff including Mrs Kim Cohen joined in the celebration.
School Chaplain, Miss Kate Powell said the Grace and spoke about the real St Valentine. We took up a collection for the Bush Ministry and raised $165. Mrs Gayle Ash baked lovely cupcakes this week as a fundraiser for the same appeal.
This Friday is the start of Bella Chicks, a program of self-esteem for teenage girls. Our Year 6 and 7 boarders will attend this, and any other interested girls are welcome. Our initial chess session with Mr Les Lord was popular last week and is a continuing Friday activity.
