We now commence a period marked not only by academic challenges but also by opportunities for personal growth and community connection. With the recent commemoration of ANZAC Day and the anticipation of the upcoming Thomas Carr Day, there is a real sense of progress and excitement in the air.

As we start Term 2, students are encouraged to embrace a mindset of academic progress and resilience. Amidst the flurry of assignments, exams, and extracurricular activities, it’s essential to stay focused on personal growth and development. Adopting a growth mindset, popularised by psychologist Carol Dweck, entails viewing challenges as opportunities for learning and improvement rather than obstacles to be avoided. By cultivating resilience and perseverance, students can navigate the academic landscape with confidence and determination.

The recent ANZAC Day ceremony served as a poignant reminder of the sacrifices made by servicemen and women throughout history. Students gathered solemnly to honour the courage and resilience of those who have served their country, reflecting on themes of sacrifice, unity, and remembrance. Such ceremonies not only pay tribute to the past but also instil a sense of gratitude and respect in the present generation.

Looking ahead, Thomas Carr Day is on the horizon, promising a day filled with festivities, fun, and school pride. This annual celebration serves as a reminder of the College’s values and achievements, uniting students, and staff, in a spirit of community and belonging. From rides and activities to artistic showcases; Thomas Carr Day provides ample opportunities for students to showcase their talents and forge lasting memories.

By staying focused on academic progress, embracing a growth mindset, and actively participating in school life, they can unlock their full potential and contribute positively to their community. With ANZAC Day and Thomas Carr Day serving as reminders of the past and celebrations of the present, there’s no better time to seize the day and make every moment count.
