Head of Year: Mr M Edge
Vision for Year 8
Year 7 has been a vital year in building strong rapports with peers and staff and to establish the structures and routines that will help us to be successful during our academic lives. As we move into year 8, it is important that as a group we continue these high expectations and standards that we have set for ourselves, so that we can accomplish our goals and aspirations.
It is important to note that we are moving into a fundamental year. This is the year where we begin to further hone our interests and take part in more exciting opportunities, where we can seize these opportunities to develop ourselves, to try new things, learn more about ourselves and to act as positive, engaged role models for the incoming year 7s. We will continue to follow the teachings of Jesus and model this through our actions and behaviours, as well as supporting students in becoming mature, responsible, independent and resilient individuals who have a range of skills which will serve them well in their future studies and lives.
My aim is to help develop well rounded young people, not only scholastically but in every aspect of life, to continue to support you in each and every way to ensure that you are continually striving to be the best versions of yourselves.
I am excited to continue to work closely with parents, guardians and families to ensure that each child receives the support they need to develop academically, personally and emotionally. I look forward to sharing this exciting journey with you all and it is together that we can achieve so much.
Top 3 Priorities for Year 8:
- To support the new year 7s and help them integrate into our community by showing them what we have learnt.
- Have more of an active role in school life and take on greater responsibilities.
- To continue to develop resilience, independence, responsibility and maturity.
