Congratulations to Brown House boarders Karma O'Reilly, Ellie Hughes, Gabby Lawson and Claudia Simon for their recent fundraising efforts for Kids' Cancer. These boarders wrote a book in a day.
The Glennie Boarding Committee ably led by Boarder Captain, Jane Evans and Boarder Vice-Captain, Fiona Murray work hard on behalf of our boarders to organise activities and outings. They are currently planning a Bingo night combined with a pyjama dinner and an alphabet dinner where family tables dress up as a letter of the alphabet.
We use these theme dinners as a part of our annual fundraising for Bush Ministry, Cancer Research and for a Year 8 Yalari Student in another school.
Bella Chicks, featuring singer, Vita Adams, was well attended by boarders in the Assembly Hall last Friday evening. This was a lively session with a country theme. These evenings were initiated by boarding, but are open to Glennie day girls and girls from other schools at a cost of $3 per person. Boarders are funded. Letitia Shelton from City Women is the organiser of Bella Chicks.
On Saturday afternoon, Mrs Gayle Ash held a craft session in Brown House. The girls who attended enjoyed painting ceramic items for Father's Day.
Miss Kate Powell ran a Reflective Service in the Chapel on Saturday afternoon. These are always calming, positive and meditative experiences.
Mrs Gill Reynoldson escorted a number of our boarders to the Fairholme/ TGS performance at the Empire Theatre on Saturday night. The show on offer was Titanic the Musical, and this outing was greatly enjoyed.
Mrs Krystal Watson from Brown House escorted a group of boarders to the PCYC Markets on Sunday morning. This outing involved a lengthy walk and the browsing of the market stalls.
On Wednesday evening, after an early dinner, a group of Year 6 and 7 boarders joined Mrs Tess McNab and Mrs Val Lovell in the Art Room to make table decorations for the annual alphabet dinner. Each family table dresses up as a letter of the alphabet and there are prizes for the most imaginative table and the best dressed in each year level.
