The sense of community in our boarding houses is palpable. The relationships built between the girls and each other and with staff are rewarding. In my experience, the reason staff remain working in boarding, despite the long hours, is due to these bonds. We spend much of our time talking with the girls. We hear about their families, interests, pets and future dreams. Last weekend, Deanne and I had the opportunity to meet up with some present and future families to hear what is important to them. We were also able to answer questions they had about a wide range of topics. For me, these visits to meet family are a highlight in my calendar. In a week we will be heading west to Rolleston, Springsure and Emerald for more of the same. If you are a family from these districts please join us for a cup of coffee and a chat. We also love talking to families who are considering boarding for their daughters. We welcome these families to join us.
Another of our new staff members who joined us this term is Skyie McCosker. Skyie is a RGGS old girl and is currently studying paramedic science at CQU. Skyie is adding energy and excitement to our boarding team. Skyie has been fantastic already with encouraging the girls to participate in our outdoor activities. Thank you for joining us, Skyie.
