Announcing our Middle School Redevelopment

We are excited to announce plans for the redevelopment of our Middle School. We have worked with the award-winning design architects responsible for the unique Tonsley redevelopment on this project. A new outdoor learning and social environment in the Mall area is a key feature. In many ways it will reflect the success of our new Senior School, the Margaret Ames Centre but developed with the younger Middle School age group in mind. The first stage of the work will be undertaken over the summer holidays. Watch out for future updates.

Anna Meares OAM headlines Sports Celebration

What an honour to have Anna Meares OAM as guest speaker at our Open A Sports Celebration last night. As an Olympic & World Champion cyclist, Anna shared some of the keys to her success, with a focus on resilience and mental strength. She encouraged our athletes to surround themselves with positive people and to focus on 'what is' rather than 'what if'. Anna is now involved in leading the fight against Motor Neurone Disease through Cycling Cares - A Fight MND Campaign. Congratulations to Year 12 students Jack and Apple for taking out two of the top awards last night for outstanding contribution across multiple sports. And thank you to all our students on their achievements and dedication to sport this year, as well as to their parents & carers for supporting them.

Old Scholar Ken Lechleitner (1985) delivered an emotional Valedictory address where he conveyed his passionate belief of the importance of mutual respect and acceptance in race relations in Australia in shaping a positive shared future for all.

The Road to Kokoda

Good luck to our team departing next week on Reconciliation South Australia's Kokoda Trek. The 11 day trek commemorates the sacrifice and service of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal soldiers on the Kokoda track in WW2. It's a unique opportunity for building resilience in emerging young leaders.Alongside the physical preparations, hiking 638.9km and climbing 31,731 vertical metres in training, they have also been gathering supplies to distribute to schools along the track. They are ready! Go well Wyndam & Courtney (Year 11), Brooke (Old Scholar 2015), and staff Virginia & David.
