Principal's Report: End of Term 4, 2023


Dear SCHS Community,


As we come to the end of another remarkable year, I am filled with immense pride and gratitude for the incredible journey we have undertaken together as a school community. The past term has been one filled with achievements, growth, and heart-warming moments that have truly defined the spirit of the SCHS family.


Our Presentation Evening marked a special occasion, bringing together students, parents, and staff to celebrate the outstanding achievements of our students. It was a night to recognize not only academic excellence but also the diverse talents that make our school community so vibrant. The stage came alive with captivating performances, and the air was filled with cheers as we acknowledged the dedication and hard work of our students. These moments of recognition are a testament to the commitment to excellence that permeates every corner of our school.


A crowning jewel in our calendar was the Year 12 Graduation ceremony, a poignant and event that marked the culmination of a significant chapter in the lives of our graduating students. The evening was filled with joy, nostalgia, and a sense of accomplishment as we bid farewell to a group of exceptional young individuals. To our graduating Year 12 students, as you take your next steps into the world beyond SCHS know that you carry with you the knowledge, skills, and values instilled during your time here. We have no doubt that you will continue to shine brightly in all your future endeavours, and we wish you success and fulfillment on your journey ahead.


As we approach the end of the academic year, it's also a time of transition for all our students. The move to a new year level is an exciting step, and we look forward to seeing each student embrace the challenges and opportunities that come with it. Our dedicated teachers have worked hard in the last two weeks of term to ensure a smooth transition and give students an opportunity to adjust to their new classes. We are confident that the upcoming year will bring even more growth and success for all our students.


As usual, end of semester 2 reports will be available on Compass. I encourage all families to take the time over the break to review the reports with your children. Celebrate their achievements, reflect on areas of growth, and set goals for the upcoming year. This collaborative effort between home and school is integral to the continued success of our students, and your involvement is deeply appreciated.


Looking ahead to 2024, I encourage our entire school community to take a well-deserved break during the holidays. It's a time to relax, recharge, and spend quality moments with loved ones. As we bid farewell to 2023, let's reflect on the successes and challenges that have shaped us, and let's approach the new year with optimism and determination.


On behalf of the entire SCHS staff, I extend my heartfelt thanks to our students, parents, and the wider community for your ongoing support. Our school is a thriving hub of learning and collaboration because of your commitment to education.


See you in 2024, refreshed and ready for another exciting year.

Martha Goodridge-Kelly
