4 August 2017

The term is already four weeks long and well underway with very busy boarders and staff. The junior boarders are making decorations for our forthcoming Recycled theme dinner. They are also looking forward to an etiquette dinner where we have a reminder session about basic good manners, plus how to consume soup without looking silly. Soup and a bread roll are always on the menu on etiquette dinner night.

All Glennie boarders are provided with a boarding produced etiquette booklet. We always enjoy taking the boarders out, and having many positive comments from the public is encouraging. It is important to know what to do in a dining setting and as I have explained to our boarders, one job interview I had included a dinner. While this was pleasant and friendly, the invitation to a meal was also an observation of my manners and ability to hold a conversation.

The Year 12 boarders enjoyed their visit to Fairholme last Monday for dinner. It is always lovely to see the warm and friendly interaction between the senior girls and the boarding staff from the two schools. The Brown House boarders enjoyed putt-putt last weekend and a trip to Cobb & Co museum is planned for Sunday.

The boarders had their annual Alphabet Dinner this week where each family table dressed up as a character with a letter provided for each particular table. As usual, there were some very inventive costumes. There is a serious side to the dinner as we took a collection for Ribbon Day in aid of cancer research.

The younger boarders enjoyed mini putt-putt, ten pin bowling and an in-house movie night. As the Year 7 boarders missed out on the recent Fairholme social, Mrs Reynoldson will take them and the Year 8 girls to a junior social at Downlands on Friday evening.

We held the monthly Birthday Tuesday for July this week. Boarding Captain Lucy Geddes and Vice Captain Bella Joseland dressed as a pair of rappers complete with backwards caps and sunglasses. They performed an original rap song and dance for the July birthday girls. It was very funny and quite special.

Senior Resident of Brown House Mrs Gill Reynoldson will attend the Federal ICPA conference in Alice Springs next week. She is looking forward to connecting with any Glennie boarder parents who may be attending.

21 July 2017

The Boarding Committee and I held our regular weekly meeting on Wednesday and on the agenda was the topic of theme dinners for the term. The Alphabet dinner will be the first at the end of July. In addition to this, there will be the Recycled dinner in August. Both will involve more than just a meal. These sorts of occasions lend themselves to other activities such as the making of decorations and costumes. In addition to the creative aspects, there is the opportunity to raise money for cancer research.

Please be aware that the recycled dinner involves recycled clothing and decorations, not food! The Year 12 boarders look forward to attending a dinner with the Fairholme Year 12 boarders on 31 July and we will also hold an Etiquette dinner this term.

We have four new GAP students joining us this term. Three young German women arrived on Thursday morning and a GAP student from Ecuador will also become a part of our boarding community. GAP students reside in self- contained motel-style rooms within boarding. They contribute considerably to the community. They undertake boarding duties with supervision from Senior Boarding staff and, as well as managing general boarding life, they are encouraged to get to know the boarders and staff.

The boarders returned with great cheer and enthusiasm on Monday afternoon and we held the Boarder Parent Forum in the Dining Room at 5.00pm with some parents staying for dinner. Everyone appears to be in good spirits and refreshed after a break.

We welcome Miss Jessica Carroll as a resident staff member to Dowson House with three GAP students joining us late next week. There was a lively State of Origin dinner on Wednesday night.  On Thursday night we held a celebration of indigenous heritage organised by Mrs Janet Reed and the Indigenous boarders and day girls.

There will be craft with Mrs Ash on Saturday afternoon and the Fairholme Boarders' bash on Saturday evening. As well as providing some relaxation on Sunday, Brown House has a morning outing arranged. Boarding tutoring and chess commence next week.

Welcome to Hogwarts

9 June 2017

The famous fictitious character Harry Potter shed a new light, or in fact, a fantastic glow on the entire concept of boarding school. Those of us who work in boarding sincerely thank JK Rowling for her efforts in this regard because Harry reinvented boarding school and made it far more attractive to young people.

Boarding can be great fun. Fortunately, Glennie is less risky an environment than Hogwarts and brooms are not a part of the uniform. I doubt that Hogwarts as a safe environment for children would come close to passing any contemporary risk assessment test!

Thursday evening was devoted to a Harry Potter theme dinner. I guess many boarding schools have attempted these, all with a different take on the fantastical lad and his intrepid friends.

Dinners like this provide the opportunity to be creative. Our frog races were actually hopping origami frogs, and stretch the snake involved jelly snakes. There was a collection to support cancer research and a quiz made up by Harry Potter devotee, Miss Chris Putland.

Mrs Gayle Ash and the Year 12 boarders led by Lucy Geddes ad Bella Joseland spent many hours involved in the making of props and special treats to create an entertaining and unusual evening. The Junior boarders were also helpful and creative.

The boarders have had a busy week with exams but there has been some frivolity as a balance. We ensure that there is reward for study. I recently asked a Year 7 boarder how she enjoyed boarding and she was pointing out the many positives to me. She explained that some of her favourite things were the great theme dinners which are a credit to the Boarding Committee and the Captain and Vice Captain Lucy Geddes and Bella Joseland.

We held Birthday Tuesday for May this week with a glorious chocolate cake and birthday cards. There was the traditional pie and chips meal for State of Origin night on Wednesday. There is always friendly rivalry between our NSW and Queensland boarders and the dining room was a sea of maroon with a few patches of blue. In order to remain neutral, I wore both colours!

Our Year 6 and 7 boarders will enjoy an evening with their Fairholme counterparts tonight. It will be a South of the Border night with a Mexican meal followed by line dancing. The dining room will be a festive environment and I am sure that the dancing that follows will wear off the calories.

The boarders are planning outfits to wear to the Harry Potter evening next Thursday. Refectory style dining will be the go with a beautiful and imperious owl, jelly beans in jars, and non-flying broomsticks. There are prizes and other lovely surprises to look forward to.

This week is a celebration of National Boarding week and the Glennie boarders raised $184 for the Australian Boarding Schools' Association (ABSA) fundraiser Beanies for Brain Cancer. There was considerable fun at the Hometown dinner last week. The girls also participated in a walk organised by boarder Captain Lucy Geddes and Vice-Captain Bella Joseland. ABSA does considerable work with boarding schools to provide support, encourage friendships between schools and supply professional training.

The Year 6 and 7 boarders joined in by creating small paintings on canvas about Glennie and home. The plan is to join the images together to create one large painting. The boarders were invited to write a small piece on why they loved boarding, and there were many heartwarming responses.

Our Year 12 boarders enjoyed a lovely dinner with Fairholme Year 12 boarders on Monday night. This is a much anticipated annual event and is always a happy, chatty evening. The meal consisted of lasagne, various delicious salads, bread rolls and a fruit platter. The Boarding Committee decorated the dining Room and the Fairholme girls visited our Senior Boarders in Simmons House. Boarder Captain Lucy Geddes and Vice- Captain Bella Joseland ran the evening. There was a friendly quiz with mixed tables competing against one another.

On Friday 2  June our Year 6 and 7 boarders will entertain their Fairholme peers with a Mexican meal and line dancing.  These boarding groups from the two schools are a similar size and these evenings provide the opportunity to make new friends.

Brown House boarders tell me that they really enjoyed an outing to mini golf on the weekend and although a visit to the Jondaryan Woolshed has been postponed, we will look at this for later in the the term.

On Wednesday evening the Year 6 and 7 boarders made macrame keyrings. On Thursday evening all Boarders had fun at the hometown dinner. There were prizes and small treats on the tables. The girls gave a gold coin donation to raise money for Juvenile Brain Cancer research which is a project of the Australian Boarding Schools Association. It is National Boarder week next week.

5 May 2017

The past weekend saw a number of boarders head off for a three-day break and, for the rest of us, a slightly quieter time in boarding. Mrs Ash made Mother's Day gifts with the younger girls on Saturday and Brown House headed to the PCYC markets on Sunday, and the movie, Beauty and the Beast on Monday.

The Catering Staff created a lovely grazing brunch on Monday which they always produce as a treat on public holidays. The later start provided an opportunity for many girls to relax and have some additional sleep. I was on Monday duty in Simmons House, and the remaining Year 12 boarders had a sleep in, some study time and a generally relaxing day. It is important for boarding to be home-like and allow young people to have the benefits and comforts of home.

For the coming weekend, there will be Friday chess, line dancing and some of the Brown House boarders are travelling to Jondaryan Woolshed on Sunday. Fairholme Year 12 girls will join our Year 12s for dinner and socialising on Monday.

The first Monday back saw excited and happy boarders. Although the girls miss their families, there is the obvious joy of catching up again with friends. The dinnertime of the night of return buzzes with excitement as boarders chat over the meal and discuss holiday exploits.The Boarding Staff also participated in a breakfast session on marketing with Mr John Devine.

Friday evening of the first week back was chess night and Bella Chicks in the Assembly Hall. Saturday night saw over 100 boarders and staff attend High School Musical at the Empire Theatre. Brown House enjoyed a sausage sizzle in Laurel Bank Park on Sunday.

Tuesday morning was the Anzac Day Dawn Service at the Mother's Memorial. This was the first time I have ordered a second bus for attendees, and 76 boarders volunteered to go. They were Joined by Principal Mrs Kim Cohen, Mrs Gill Reynoldson, Miss Cassie Ross, Miss Stacie Broom. Our three Gap Student, Misses Jody Hender, Theresa Meyer and Jenny Wang were also interested attendees.

Tutoring commences again in the boarding houses.

It has been an unusually quiet week in all houses with so many boarders at camps and the older girls who have remained are busy with study for exams. The Year 10 to 12 boarders have been very industrious and appreciated the tutoring provided. This has meant that little has gone on in the way of activities because of other parts of Glennie life.

The boarders are looking forward to the coming break and being with families again. In the last week of term we look forward to Miss Kate Powell's special Easter meal on Monday evening where we reflect as a community on the meaning of Easter.

Tuesday night is the last night of term and there is a relaxing dinner with pyjamas, teddy bears, bingo - chocolate frog prizes and a small gift to each boarder from the Boarding Committee. The last Tuesday of term is also Birthday Tuesday. We wish all Glennie students a happy holiday.

The Glennie Fair was a great success and we were busy in boarding with numerous Open Day tours. It was good to see so many interested prospective families.

The coming weekend has girls attending Bella Chicks on Friday night combined with Chess with Les Lord. Many girls are playing sport on weeknights and Saturdays and of course, there are exams on the horizon and camps for younger girls.

The new recreation room in Brown house is being well used by the boarders and we are currently planning a variety of outings and activities for next term.

We always look for an opportunity to celebrate or socialise together and Mrs Cohen kindly joined us for an evening meal on Tuesday. We held a celebration for St Patrick's day on Thursday with a lot of green in the dining room, prizes, frog in the pond for dessert and jelly snakes on the tables. Why snakes? Just a spot of whimsical symbolism; legend has it that St Patrick drove all of the snakes from Ireland.

We are looking forward to the Glennie Fair on the weekend and boarding remains very busy. I must admit that living on sideshow alley was not exactly on my bucket list, but it is quite interesting! Girls are also preparing for the Webber House Dinner on Friday. Sport is currently keeping many of our boarders busy plus the Catering and Boarding staff are supporting as many as forty late dinners in the evenings.

The boarders are accessing tutoring as part of their preparation for the coming exam period. We also look forward to an end of term break. The Year 6 and 7 boarders are currently learning different knots with me and developing some patience. On Thursday night Brown House had the benefit of an after dinner session on cyber safety with Mr Tim Causer. We will have chess on Friday night, craft on Saturday with Gayle Ash and due to the Fair, we will not be holding Sunday swimming.

Boarding should never be considered a place that is a holding bay between bouts of academia. Academic commitment is a high priority in our community.  Of course we have down time, socialising, games, activities and fun, but there is that important opportunity to receive ongoing assistance with homework and this is advertised to our boarding families on the Glennie Portal.

Brown House Boarders have staff with them at night who can assist with homework, as do Dowson House girls. Tutoring Senior Boarders is more specialised, so we have a Science specific tutor who assists with Physics, Chemistry and Biology on Tuesday nights, and a Maths A, B and C tutor on Thursday nights. Fiona Woodward, one of the Simmons House Staff is a trained Humanities teacher who offers support to any Senior girls while she does duty on Saturdays and also assists the Brown House girls with their homework at night.

Boarders have an advantage in this regard, and are reminded to make the most of what is on offer. This type of academic support is very important for children who live away from home. They become comfortable with the people offering assistance and this in turn builds confidence.

We do encourage boarder parents to utilise what we have on offer before exploring external tutoring services. Ours is group tutoring but that can be advantageous because of the peer interaction. Further support is also available through the day School where tutorials are regularly offered.

I have early dinner with our youngest boarders once per week and follow this with an art and craft session. Last week we engaged in scratch art which is similar to what many people remember doing with coloured crayons covered by black. I managed to source some scratch art boomerangs last week, and we will do these tonight.

As well as being a trained art teacher I was also a practising artist, and am a great believer in being multi-skilled. Arts and crafts are not just about mindless entertainment; they enhance patience, self-worth, improve concentration and develop fine motor skills. Most importantly, art trains the ability to think in a divergent fashion, or in other words, art encourages problem-solving and the ability to think laterally.

The boarders enjoy learning these skills and what we do is certainly worthwhile. My hope is to engage children and encourage them to be less reliant on mass production and be more self-sufficient. Next week, we will be sewing on buttons and learning a bit of basic stitchery. They will then know what to do when their hem comes down!

Gayle Ash takes craft on a Saturday, and last week the boarders created mini succulent gardens. They have also done basic embroidery and decorated a mug with porcelain paint.

Some years ago I was teaching Art in a school similar to Glennie; it was the last lesson on Friday afternoon and I must admit I was feeling a bit jaded. A class of Year 8s arrived and one brightly raced through the door with the comment "I have been hanging out for this class all day". Her cheerful comment has remained with me.

I love my computer dearly, but the joy of creating something myself is something I will never lose and I hope this love of learning something new stays with our boarders. Please note that art, craft and much of our Boarder Enrichment Program is at no charge to our families.

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.

The junior boarders were entertained by the Boarding Committee last Friday and enjoyed an evening of popcorn and a movie with our senior girls.

Mrs Gayle Ash helped boarders to make hand painted mugs last Saturday afternoon and they will have the opportunity to learn some sewing skills with me this Saturday.

Swimming for boarders is available on Tuesdays before breakfast as well as a special two-hour session on Sunday afternoons.

An exciting addition of a recreation area in Brown House was completed during the holidays; our grateful thanks to all of the Glennie staff concerned. We have commenced furnishing this beautiful space. A pool table and multiple bean bags will arrive shortly. There is a TV for movie evenings which has been used already. We purchased some high-quality educational documentaries suited to younger boarders. There are board games and a table tennis table. We will develop the space further over the next weeks.

We are currently busy with planning and making sessions for our Valentine's Day dinner on Tuesday. The Boarding Committee and our most junior boarders have enjoyed bonding sessions to make bright and attractive decorations for this lovely occasion. Our focus is, as always, the concept of "agape" which is kind and altruistic love as opposed to the romantic. There are prizes for best dressed and lucky door prizes. A gold coin donation is taken to aid Bush Ministry.

A number of boarders are looking forward to Chess on Friday. Boarding tutoring is well underway. A list will be available on the Portal next week.

Last Saturday, all boarders enjoying a relaxing outing to Southbank which helped new girls to strengthen friendships and for continuing boarders to re-connect in a fun environment. The Glennie pool was open on Sunday afternoon as an escape from the heat (although the boarding houses are lovely and cool thanks to the air-conditioning).

Next week, Maths and Science tutoring for senior boarders will commence. There is in-house homework support available for all other boarders. Chess lessons with Mr Les Lord commence next week.

The Year 6 and 7 borders enjoyed making Valentine's decorations with Mrs Ash, Year 12 boarder Sally Wong and me on Thursday afternoon. The Boarding Committee enjoys contributing to the welfare of our younger boarders.

There are many sporting fixtures starting for girls to challenge themselves and enjoy. Parents can be assured that boarders are well supervised whilst in transit and at the venue.

It has been a busy and productive week with our new boarders settling well into residential life. All boarders, former and new, had a good first day on Sunday and were excited to be here. Many boarder parents enjoyed the P&F drinks on Sunday afternoon,

Australia Day was a fairly quiet day with a lovely "grazing brunch" provided in the morning, and the pool open in the afternoon. On Saturday boarders travel to Southbank for an outing and an opportunity to catch up with old friends and make new ones. The Boarding Committee is preparing to entertain the younger girls on Sunday.

Mrs Kim Cohen will join the boarders for dinner on Wednesday evenings commencing in Week 2. The Year 6 and 7 Boarders will learn craft with me on Thursdays following an early dinner.

The boarders always enjoy the last weekend of the year and the trip to a Gold Coast theme park. Due to the recent tragedy at Dreamworld we changed venues and the girls enjoyed the outing to Movieworld and some down time. Even a bus trip can be relaxing! The younger boarders were accompanied to the Park by the incoming Seniors on Sunday and all of Brown House took part in a movie evening with popcorn.

The last week of term is always enjoyable with many festivities to be involved in. A significant feature of the last week of any term is the packing for home. Our Year 11 and Year 8 girls anticipate the change of boarding house.

The 2017 Simmons boarders chose their rooms on Monday. We looked forward to the Carols evening on Wednesday and also Speech Day. Boarding wishes all of our Glennie Families a safe and happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year.

This is a big week for boarders. The Year 11 girls farewelled the Year 12 girls  with a presentation on Monday evening and the Boarding Christmas dinner was a special annual function with a magnificent spread of food prepared by the catering team and a visit from Santa. The evening is run by the Boarding Committee with the Boarder Captain  Jen Stewart and Vice-Captain Georgia Kennedy manning the microphone.

We took the opportunity to make a farewell presentation to Mrs Wendy  Ashley-Cooper and we were joined by a number of Boarder Parents who presented her with the special gift of a handmade silver and gold enamel brooch featuring the School badge (pictured). The presentation from Boarder Parents was made by the organiser Mrs Suzie Killen who also attended Glennie, as did her mother before her. Mrs Killen described her own School days under the Headship of Miss Kathleen Simmons.

After the excitement of the Formal there is the Year 10 River Cruise on Friday, with Saturday being spent at Movieworld. A busy and exciting two weeks!

This is a particularly busy time of year for all in boarding with many festivities to look forward to including our annual Christmas dinner next Wednesday. There is the Mother Daughter Breakfast, Father Daughter Bowling and the Formal high on the list for the Year 12 girls, the River Cruise for the Year 10 girls and all boarders are looking forward to a day trip to Movie World. The Carol Service and Speech Day will close a busy term.

A small but significant thing happened this week when I invited the Year 11 boarders who will be the 2017 Boarding Committee, to have early dinner and craft with the Year 7 boarders. We made collaged cards for Christmas, and the older girls assisted the younger ones following a practical demonstration. It was a lovely and impromptu session with the leaders spending quality time with younger girls, and it was worth the lengthy preparation.

There are many moments in boarding that make this a highly worthwhile profession. Sadly, we farewell a lovely group of Year 12 boarders who are looking forward to the next exciting stages of their lives. We wish them every happiness and success as they leave us in a few days and in spite of missing them, along with their parents, we take pride in the wonderful young women they have become.

Boarding students enjoyed a fun evening of dressing up in work shirts and combining this with Bingo on Tuesday evening. There was a voluntary donation, with contributions going towards the Year 12 girls’ chosen fund. The only gambling at Bingo nights is for mini chocolates! Bingo remains a much-loved boarder after dinner activity, and we do this once per term. Some enterprising girls suggested weekly Bingo!

This and the Christmas dinner will be two of the last functions organised by the current Boarding Committee. 2016 Boarder Captain Jennifer Stewart and Vice-Captain Georgia Kennedy have been wonderful organisers and role models. Aimee Sullivan has also successfully fulfilled the role of Dining Room Captain.

The 2016 Boarding Committee have been a cohesive group of young women who have made a significant contribution to boarding and we celebrated their successful year with a lovely afternoon tea at the Parkhouse Cafe on Monday.

We welcome new Boarder Captain Lucy Geddes and Vice-Captain Bella Joseland to their roles and also Courtney Baker to the position of Dining Room Captain. The 2017 Boarding Committee looks to be an impressive and energetic group who held their first breakfast meeting on Wednesday.

There are many functions at this stage of the year for boarders to enjoy. Due to the recent tragedy at Dreamworld, our end of year boarding excursion has been transferred to Movie World which was the choice of both Brown and Dowson boarders.

Chess and the Sunday Swimming session are available this weekend. The Year 7 boarders enjoyed making Scratch-Art Christmas trees and calendars with me on Wednesday evening (pictured).
