Dear Boarding Parents and Guardians
As we approach the home stretch in what’s been a busy term, we have been involved with 2022 Boarding Leadership speeches. Nine candidates have put themselves forward to join the Boarding Council and their speeches earlier this week were all very thoughtfully prepared and well presented. The girls will now have an interview with myself and the current Head Boarders before we finalise the outcome. The successful applicants are decided using a number of criteria including the voting by their peers and staff, interview, application essay and staff recommendation letter.
Over the last month I have had the pleasure of vising Mingenew, Dowerin and Brookton meeting with new current, past and prospective families. It has been great being able to promote our boarding community and share the fabulous opportunities available here at SBC.
In recent days we have had a number of girls caught with 2nd phones. This clearly contravenes the boarding mobile phone policy which all girl and their parents signed in agreement at the start of the year. Its disappointing to have this happen, but more concerning is the girls lack of acknowledgement that they have done the wrong thing. I urge all parents to chat with their daughters about honest and appropriate behaviours when they are home for the holidays.
As always I thank you for your continued support.
Regards and Best wishes
Head of Boarding
