From the BoHo

Posted 1 March 2019 12:45pm

Life continues to be busy in the Boarding House. After the excitement of camps, the Boarders are settling into the day school and the routine of Prep. However, the social fun continues! Earlier in the month we celebrated Valentine’s (Galentine’s!) Day with a themed family dinner complete with decorations!

We were very excited to take a group of boarders to watch Grace Kemp, one of our Year 12 Boarders, debut for the Super W Brumbies last Saturday night. This was followed by an outing on Sunday morning to the Royal Canberra Show.

The rowers in the BoHo have been participating in State Championships and IGSSA Regattas in Sydney preparing for the Schoolgirls’ Head of the River which is happening at the end of Week 6.  The Dragon Boaters have also been competing in regattas in Canberra and Jindabyne preparing for their National Championships at the end of term and our musicians enjoyed a fabulous Music Camp last weekend.

Over the last weeks, at our Monday night House Meetings, we have welcomed Mr Joel Copeland from the Music Academy to talk about what the Music program has to offer and Ms Deb Styman has come along to talk about the winter co-curricular sport program.  The boarders were interested and excited at what opportunities were available to be involved in all aspects of school life.

A reminder of the upcoming Exeat Weekend (the Canberra Day long weekend) where the whole Senior School campus closes including the Boarding House. All Boarders leave the BoHo, either to visit with their parents, guardians or friends and other family members. The Boarding House will close at 5.00pm on Friday, 8 March and re-open at 4.00pm on Monday 11 March 2019. 

A reminder too, the School bus will be operating on the Canberra Day weekend to transport country boarders to and from Wagga Wagga (with negotiated stops) For more information, please contact the Head of Boarding:P tina.twigg@cggs.act.edu.au
