We have had a fabulous week as we launch into Term 2. Many of our students attended ANZAC Day ceremonies around the region on Monday which has been followed by ANZAC Day ceremonies, led by our students whose families are members of the Australian Defence forces. My sincere thanks to our Defence School Mentor, Mrs Amanda Canfield who does a wonderful job supporting our students and families. Here are a few photos of our ceremonies:

A reminder if you haven’t already looked at The Resilience Project resources. 
The Resilience Project delivers emotionally engaging programs and provides evidence-based, practical strategies to build resilience.
Our Partnership Program consists of online presentations and weekly lessons for students, professional development for staff, and Parent & Carer Hub (inc. digital presentations) for our parent and carer community. 

Wishing you a wonderful weekend,

Warm regards,
Leisa Harper

Located in the heart of Gippsland, the School has more than 1100 students across three campuses including St Anne’s junior campus and the Garnsey senior campus, both at Sale, and the Bairnsdale junior campus in East Gippsland. Enrolments at both junior campuses begin with a 3s and 4s kindergarten program at their respective Early Learning Centres (ELC) and Garnsey caters for students from Years 7-12.
