St Hilda's Collegiate School


Dear Parents and Caregivers

This week has been one of contrasts, from quiet reflection in chapel, contemplating our place in the world and that of those who have gone before us, through to the fun and activities of Book Week culminating in the laughter and interest in Kyle Mewburn's presentation in assembly, sharing her wit and experiences as an author, followed by the truly fantastic; with stilt walkers, circus performers and hip hop crews all performing their unique brand of magic in the various spaces around the school, and in between valuable learning, and daily routines. A bit of everything this week - which is so reflective of life really - the happy and the sad, the thought provoking and the humorous, the wonder and the ordinary. All important, all valuable, all opportunities to learn and grow.

We are so fortunate to have a community that supports and cherishes our ideas, staff who make it all happen and girls who embrace the opportunities. Please read this newsletter for all the fabulous details of what has been happening on campus this week.
