Middle School Report

Recent Posts

It has been a thriving start to the Middle School this year as we welcomed our new year 7 students to the Fairhills High School community. Students engaged in a 4- day induction program delivering sessions on setting high expectations, being an upstander, team building, mindfulness, organisational skills and time-management. The highlights included building a spaghetti marshmallow tower, and designing a future time capsule to open at the end of year 12, in 2029.

Students in year’s 8 and 9 participated in the return to school interviews, an opportunity to reinforce important information around key policies such as attendance and uniform, positive behaviour and learning expectations. It was great to see so many families attend.

We have also seen a resounding response to the call for performers to audition for this year’s State School Spectacular; an invaluable performing arts opportunity. Congratulations to all our successful middle school applicants who will perform at John Cain Arena later this year.

Our focus this year in the middle school is our collective responsibility to improving student learning and outcomes to ensure all students fulfil their full potential. Our guiding principles are framed around our school values of acting responsibly, building relationships and showing respect.

Yet again I feel very privileged to lead the middle school this year and seek to assure you that the middle school team is committed to working together to create a learning environment in which all students are respected, where all students are safe and where all students have access to many engaging learning opportunities.

I very much look forward to working with all our middle school parents/carers, students and families.

Fairhills High School Time Capsule

To celebrate the beginning of their secondary school lives, the Year 7s recently participated in a Time- Capsule activity. Students were asked to write a piece about themselves outlining their personal characteristics, their likes and dislikes and what they want to be when they grow up. Importantly they also wrote a message to their future selves. These items were sealed in envelopes, some along with other personal mementos like photos, keepsakes and drawings and placed in a chest for safe keeping. These treasures will be unlocked when the students reach Year 12 in 2029. It is always fun to see how students have developed over the years and to give them a chance to reflect on their younger selves.
