I may be nearing the end of my time as Head of Edenhurst, but that doesn’t stop me being excited about the future of the school and it’s been a pleasure to help to prepare the team of teachers for next year. Over the years I have seen many retirements of experienced teachers: parents have often been concerned about “what will happen when so-and-so leaves?”. Of course, what happens is - new teachers join and refresh the team, the Edenhurst ship keeps sailing on, and the children keep learning and ACHIEVING.

At Edenhurst, one of the key ways in which we enrich the curriculum is through real-life experiences and trips. One of the most important of these is the residential experience, where children live with each other, develop their interpersonal skills and help them to become better leaders, as well as building trust and respect.
As Prep 5 and Prep 6 prepare to make their memories of Barcelona, I’ve been enjoying looking back over the blog entries from our trips in 2014 and 2016. It really doesn’t seem like two years ago since we last went, and indeed four years since our inaugural trip. There has been much excitement amongst the children and also amongst the teachers - whilst it’s a busy time, we do enjoy it as well!
As you sit and read this, our school community is remembering our fabulous play of last night. It was ‘Brilliant’ in every way: from its name to the way that the whole school came together to perform. How lovely it was to have so many parents and friends of the Edenhurst community coming to enjoy the performance in the Mitchell Memorial Theatre.
