Grade 7 Morning Tea: Miss Chisholm, Miss Beales and myself took great joy in attending the Brighton Secondary School morning tea, an opportunity for 2019 Grade 6 teachers to reconnect with BBPS students in attendance at Brighton Secondary in Grade 7 this year. As a major feeder secondary school for our community, it was wonderful to see so many of last year’s grade 6s (approximately half!) – as well as former students now in Grade 8, 9, and 10! The students shared their excitement about going on school camp, introduced us to some of their new friends, and discussed the complexities of remembering what subject period they had next and which book to take from their locker.
WELCOME BBQ – Tomorrow 5-7pm, don’t forget to join us on Windermere Oval for our annual welcome event.
