5th ( and FINAL) Letter Home from the Alpine School Campus - Term 3 - September 15th 2014
Overcast and getting cooler
Here we are at the start of our final week, only a few days to go, and I think that students see that their time at the Alpine School Campus is now definitely finite! Five sleeps they keep telling me. Mind you, many students are ready to leave. There are still many important tasks for us all to attend to, and I welcome the greater independence and personal drive I witness in our students, your sons and daughters. It is a delight to work with young people in our environment and see them “doing”! They just get on with the job now, for the most part, and set their goals and review their outcomes.
Thank you for contributing to another successful term of the Alpine School. The “Separation Phase” of the Alpine School Experience concludes for the community of Term 3, 2014 on Saturday September 20th, signaling the beginning of the “Reintegration Phase”!
You can meet your son or daughter at any time after 10am that day. Please do not come earlier and definitely prior to midday. If you are late, please call. It is a source of considerable concern for the “last” students to see all their friends leave and have no idea why mum/dad is late. . Please drive carefully and slowly and remember to carry snow chains at this time of the year. It is a law.
If you intend your son or daughter having any other travel arrangements not with you, and have not already done so, please contact us regarding travel permission forms or other details.
With every good wish on behalf of the Alpine School Team
Mark Reeves (Principal) & Russell Shem (Campus Principal - Alpine School)
