Term 1 Newsletter

Principal Britta Corones

From the Principal

To our SSC community.

We have had a brilliant start to the term with good solid enrolment numbers, happy students and enthusiastic staff. Term 1 is an 11-week term full of learning, activities, fun and traditional values. 

We welcome a number of new families to our community and we look forward to getting to know you all. Our first “meet and greet” for the year is our Acquaintance night on 19th February from 6-8pm. Drinks and nibbles will be available and we shall run through a few formalities as well as introduce the teachers, the P&F for 2019 and present the current  school board of management members. You will have an opportunity to hear from all the teachers and to ask them questions and set up times to meet with them for any longer questions you may have. 

This is the shortest newsletter you will receive this year. We wanted to make sure that you have the information necessary for your agenda. Please refer to this newsletter for when you require School information.

Kind regards,

Britta Corones

Principal

Uniforms

The boys summer white shirts will be the only shirt available as of 2020 as we are phasing out the light green. The uniform committee in conjunction with our senior students assisted in designing the new shirts.

Winter uniform orders are being taken now, so if you require anything from the Winter uniform list, please notify office for an appointment. 

All students are looking very smart in their college uniforms and we would like to keep it this way. Please do not dress your child in trainers/sneakers/runners with formal uniform.
