From Hoade House

We have now been in our new AWC vertical system for a full term.  It has been great to see the relationships within these groupings develop in such a short time.  It was no secret among some students that they had reservations when this change was taking place.

I’d like to thank our AWC teachers for their enthusiasm for Hoade house and contributing so positively since our change to the vertical structure. Thanks also to our house leaders Bridget Simmons and Thomas Nguyen, as well as our school captain Lucy Boyle for her leadership in 2022.

Congratulations to Harrison Davies of Year 12, who represented the College on Anzac Day.  He did a magnificent job as a guest speaker, at the ceremony at Jack Evans boat harbour.  Mr Coverdale also presented a special Anzac tribute at our school’s Anzac assembly.  Thanks and well done sir.

It has been fantastic that the students can finally attend out of school activities, after two years of lockdowns and restrictions.  Hoade students have taken part in many opportunities, including AFL, Netball, Fast 5 Netball, Bill Turner Soccer, League Tag, Diocesan Swimming and Cross Country, as well as the ANZAC Day March.

We have amazing opportunities in Academic, Religious, Sporting, Community and Cultural pursuits that students can participate in to achieve the ‘Fullness of Life’.

Our regular SEAAR reports are there for you to keep a track on how your student is progressing.  We have had some wonderful results in the completed cycles so far.

If you have any concerns, please feel free to contact your students AWC teacher or myself to discuss any issues.

Go Hoade!
