We warmly welcomed two new international students from China at the start of Term 1 this year, amid the first omicron wave. Holiday and Jingmei joined our Year 12 after completing online Year 11 with another school. Their perseverance, determination and optimism made their travelling back to Australia possible and we are fortunate to have them. Term 1 was busy but also fun. On one hand, our international students adjusted themselves well to onsite schooling and doing RAT tests with due diligence; on the other hand, they threw themselves into the sporting festivals that were missed for two years. Helen Vu, the 2017 Dux, now in her final year of Medicine studying at Monash, kindly came back to school and gave Year 12 EAL students a valuable workshop on final year EAL learning. She also revealed an exciting news that her younger brother in Vietnam is going to join our school from Term 3 this year! As the Term break is coming up, we would like to wish our students a safe and relaxing holiday period, and we are looking forward to welcoming back more new international students in Term 2 and 3.
