Another busy term comes to a close!

Almost the end of Term 2! Although it was a relatively short term, it has proven to be an extremely busy and productive one. From a Round Square perspective, we have been involved in a number of different Service activities, been busy organising more Exchange visits for Term 3, and preparing for our involvement in the Round Square International Conference in Canada at the end of September. Some activities planned for Term 3 include Year 8 Regional Exchanges, continued support of Resthaven and Foodbank, as well as fundraising activities and support organised by the Round Square Board. I will keep you posted about these in future eNews articles.

Being Round Square and Exchanges Coordinator gives me a great opportunity to work with a number of new students and families every year and allows me to challenge myself every day with the variety of areas that make up Round Square. Whilst I am looking forward to our July break, I am also excited about some of the opportunities coming up for Round Square in Terms 3 and 4. Thank you for your continued support over the first semester.
