Message From the Manager, Education and Administration Term 4

Students have been quick to settle into College life again. Uniform and grooming have been impressive and students’ application to their studies has been equally impressive. I am glad to see that students’ engagement, learning and application is well underway. Given this, the results for this term look promising, as we anticipate our students’ success at the end of term.

As I was looking at the list of award recipients at the recent Headmaster’s Assembly, I was amazed again at how many JPIC graduates are in that list. Their achievements were across all areas and included:

  • Burgundy Awards for JP Community Care (Check full list here)
  • Senior Laurels for exemplary behaviour, attitude and commitment to non-compulsory service activity (Check full list here)
  • Australian National Chemistry Quiz certificates – High Distinction & Distinction 
    (Check full list here)
  • TAS Football Trophies – Yr8, Yr9, Yr10, Second XI and First XI
  • TAS Basketball Trophies – Yr10 and Seconds. (Full Stories)

These achievements mark only some of the work and success of the JPIC graduates. I am sure we will share in more JPIC graduate success soon.

As you are aware, Speech Night is not far away. This is a significant event in the JPC and JPIC calendar, representing a culmination of the JPC community, academic and co-curricular year. Each year, we are proud of the many achievements of JPIC graduates. I would ask that you show your support by joining the JPIC staff and Level 5 students at this event on 7 November as we look forward to hearing about the success of our JPIC graduates.

Graduation of JPIC students is also a significant event this term. On 7 December, we look forward to sending our graduates to JPC. Again, we welcome all families and homestay families to this event. More information will be forwarded shortly.

I encourage families and homestay to continue the hard work and investment into your students. With only a few weeks left in the year, it is very important to continue the momentum and good work.

I wish you all the best for Term 4.

Michael Bos
