Memorial Service - Bishop John McIntyre

Dear Parents and Friends

As you are aware our community is mourning the sad and sudden loss of our Bishop, Bishop John McIntyre.  The Anglican community will hold a memorial service for Bishop John next Friday 20 June 2014.  The Gippsland Grammar Parents and Friends have been asked to offer our support by contributing to the afternoon tea in Garnsey Hall at which 600-800 people are expected.

Can you please reply by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by 10.00am next Monday 16 June if you are able to:

  • Supply afternoon tea eg. slice, biscuits, scones with no cream (no sandwiches as refrigeration is not available).  Please advise what you can donate and to where you will deliver it.
  • Attend the afternoon tea to assist with serving food, clearing up and keeping coffee and tea stations. (from approx 3:30pm)

Donations of afternoon tea can be delivered throughout the day on Friday 20 June to Garnsey Hall (from McGhee Street), or be dropped off at St Anne’s on Friday morning for delivery to Garnsey Campus.

Your support is truly appreciated as we acknowledge and honour John’s life and support his family and friends at this very emotional time.   Vale Bishop John.

ISC News

Come and Try Evening
On the 20th May, the ISC was able to showcase some of its online services in the ISC Technology Challenge sessions which were part of the 2014 Come and Try evening. Our young visitors were actively engaged in the six challenges on offer and were ably assisted by our Year 8 guides. A big thank you to Alice Jones, Ellie Taylor, Alex Seys, Amber Roberts, Mitch Rankin, Taylah Davidson, Nisangi Siramanna and Ashley Singer for volunteering their time. Their warm and friendly interaction with our visitors was wonderful to witness.

BeSmart, Be eSmart Day
On Wednesday 11 June, our ISC was actively involved in our Year 7 and 8 Be Smart, Be eSmart Day. Four 60 minute sessions were held in the ISC where all Year 7’s and 8’s got the opportunity to participate in Cybersmart Networking, a fun online interactive activity that addressed the potential risks associated with online social networking. Students worked in teams to respond to scenarios and were given time to reflect on their own experiences and explore strategies to stay safe online.This was a very worthwhile activity that will help our students to be safe and responsible digital citizens.

Parenting Ideas

Junior School reports are being sent home today and those from the senior school will follow next Friday. This week’s parenting article explores the whole area of receiving and responding to school reports. At the heart of the article is recognition that every child is unique and learns at a different rate. Knowing your child’s strengths and weaknesses as parent is essential so that you can provide all important support and encouragement, as well as appropriate challenge and expectation at the right time. Taking time to talk with your child about his / her report and highlighting and celebrating achievements is vital. It’s also an opportunity to talk constructively and positively about next steps and any areas that need improvement. The attached article also reminds us that a good report, just like a good school, is not just about academic attainment but also about the whole child; social, emotional, physical, spiritual and cultural etc. Show value to these things and help your child to see their success in these aspects, as well as in those areas where they have put in great levels of effort yet are still struggling.  Receiving your child’s school report provides a great opportunity to stop and reflect together and to further strengthen that important parent-child relationship.
