This term has been like no other in boarding with the unusual events that have impacted on the living environments for boarders. I have been thoroughly impressed by the resilience and determination of our girls who have focussed on academic pursuits and thrown themselves into the alternate programs that have been on offer. We have enjoyed personal training, bush walks, high teas, campfire singing and cooking, scavenger hunts, a trip to Crows Nest Falls and lots of incidental activities that have brought us together as a community. Our older students have been generous in spending time with their younger peers and community members.
There are lots of things people will take away from this time. I know I will remember the community spirit and generosity that has been demonstrated during a time of adversity. This is what I believe is the essence of being a Glennie girl. The ability to turn lemons into lemonade and let nothing stand in their way.
