Transcript of Term 3 2019 - ¢  Garden Party Prep Boarders¢â‚¬â„¢...

  • Term 3 2019

    Now we’ve hit our stride! It’s so good to see you all getting out and about and embracing the opportunities of our Love It program. In Term 3, there is once again plenty of fun activities specially designed to keep you cosy and engaged in the cooler weather and to get you out and about as Spring starts to break through. This term we introduce our weekly ‘Boarders Get Baking’ program. Deliberately designed by our very own ‘Domestic Goddess’ Mrs Wiedemann to blend our Live it and Love it programs and have you turning out delicious baked goods each Friday afternoon. We’ve even built in a visit to the Mecca of baking, Maggio’s at Cammeray for a behind the scenes tour of this lower North Shore institution. Our Live It, Love It, Learn It programs are all about learning new skills and sharing them with others. On our Community Day you will have the opportunity to work with Narromine artist, Susie Rae, to produce artworks for display in our Houses. We will also have a focus on the Garden Party and in particular, our Boarders’ stall, with many opportunities to bake and create goods to share with others. Amongst an exciting range of activities there are some very special occasions – our Year 12 Charity Event, the Pymble Uniting Church visit, Boarders’ Week, Garden Party and of course, our farewell to our Year 12 boarder ‘sisters’. So much to look forward to!

  • Week One Friday 26 July: Boarders get baking All of you seem to love baking and I know you LOVE yummy food. Take this opportunity to work with Mrs Wiedemann in our specialist Food Technology room and bake until your heart is content, and your tummy is full. This first session will be all about setting you on the path to producing delicious food, getting to know the environment and talking through your baking aspirations (we can make them come true!). Saturday 27 July: Netflix Binge Night with Popcorn and Choc Tops The first week back is always exhausting. Hang out with your mates in your House Lounge and enjoy some down time watching Netflix together. Dinner will be in-house with some special treats to follow. Sunday 28 July: King Street Wharf Adventure including Strike Bowling Join us for an afternoon of fun at Strike, King Street Wharf and a celebration of Mika’s birthday!

There will be some time following bowling, to have look around the newly revamped Darling Harbour. Week Two Friday 2 August: Boarders get baking You are old hands at this now. Enjoy your time baking until your heart is content. Don’t forget to talk to Mrs Wiedemann about the things you want to cook – we can make it happen! Newcomers are always welcome. Saturday 3 August: Can you feel the love tonight? I am not even going to bother writing the synopsis. We all know and we all love the Lion King so come along and feel the love at Hornsby Odeon this Saturday night. Of course, the Knox boys will be welcome!

    The reputation of this uniquely Sydney event has grown year on year and the City to Surf is widely recognised as a ‘bucket-list’ item for serious runners and adventure lovers around the world. Join your Boarding ‘Sisters’ and our fitness Queen, Lauren of Goodlet to run as a team and complete this fitness challenge.

    We will be leaving the College at 8.00am ready for a 9.35am race start and a fabulous 14km journey. The aim is to complete the race running, walking, skipping, singing, dancing and just enjoying ourselves. Please dress up in pink for the occasion and hopefully we can get on TV!

  • Hot Yoga Perhaps you prefer a more relaxed fitness regime? Hot yoga was such a hit in Term 2 that we have brought it back again. If you haven’t already, try this new twist on the ancient practice of yoga. Yoga is practiced in the gentle warmth of approximately 32 degrees. Hot Yoga is known to increase oxygen in the blood, improve immune function, relax muscles and joints as well as ease soreness and pain. A perfect way to ease those early Term 3 aches and pains.

    Week Four Friday 16 August: Boarders get baking How much good food can you take? Regular attendees will be feeling pretty clever by now, having mastered the basics.

Newbies are always welcome to come and share the love (and goodies!).
