Year 7 Camp

During Week 4, the Year 7 cohort visited Robe and Naracoorte for their Experiential Learning Program. The students experienced many fun activities including canoeing, surfing, hiking at Robe and adventure caving at Naracoorte. In addition to this, students developed their camping skills by pitching tents and cooking for their groups. There were many highlights of the trip and the stunning scenery, sense of adventure and warm weather was appreciated by all. The group took the opportunity to deepen connections and their support of one another was tremendous. Included are some photos of the activities for your enjoyment. 

Shrove Tuesday

Last Tuesday on Shrove Tuesday, the Middle School House Prefects, with the help of Rev Gracey ran a pancake fundraiser across the school. Much needed funds were raised for Food Bank. Food Bank do great work in supporting those who have difficulty purchasing enough food to avoid hunger. The stall was a terrific success. The way in which the House Prefect Team worked together to run the event was a highlight. We have an extremely capable group in 2021 and the Middle School students have the pleasure of being led by selfless, mature and team orientated students. They are a credit to the Pulteney community.

Homework Club

Homework Club is an opportunity for students to engage with their homework under the supervision of teachers. They can receive extra help in a quiet space in this after-school programme. It is a voluntary, drop in style arrangement that all students are encouraged to access. There is no need to register in advance with sessions held on Wednesdays after school, from 3:45pm to 4:30pm in MS2.6.
