The first of four optional re-engagement sessions for local students took place last week, with over 20 local students arriving on campus to reconnect with friends, teachers and House staff.
Students have the option of morning or full-day sessions, with fun social activities in the morning and the opportunity to support House staff in the afternoon.
Coordinated by a core team of administrative and educational staff, including Head Nurse and Student Health Coordinator Heather Craib, each on-campus engagement session begins at the Charlie Purdey Arena with a self-assessment health check.
The students are then broken into smaller groups and spread out across campus to engage in activities ranging from canoeing, kayaking, orienteering and rowing to artistic and school community projects.
"It has been amazing reconnecting with some of our local students,” shares Head of Athletics Tim Murdy. “To see their smiles and hear their laughs as we participated in some arts and activities lifted everyone's spirits on campus. We have three more dates planned and are all very much looking forward to more fun and laughs. Take care everyone, and I can't wait to see the rest of you!”
The three remaining on-campus re-engagement days are June 12, 16 and 19.
