Welcome Back to Term 3 2017

Tuesday, 12 September, 2017

Welcome back to the final school term of 2017. I trust everyone has had a wonderful break with lots of rest and opportunities to enjoy numerous activities with family and friends. The staff and I are looking forward to an exciting, productive and successful final term of the year.

Since the beginning of the year we have achieved notable successes in academics, sport and culture. We therefore; remain confident that this school year is truly going to be something special. Our consistent effort to support the students’ efforts, academically, socially and spiritually throughout the year, will ensure optimum success for all.

 

To the students, I want you to know how much we truly care about you at Hillcrest College.  Determination is a key part of school life. Without hard work and determination, you will not achieve. Remain focused and determined. Continue pushing yourself to reach your peak potential.

 

To the parents and guardians, you are just as important.  As educators, we look forward to educating your children, and appreciate that you are entrusting them in our care. This is a privilege we accept with great responsibility and continue to work towards maintaining your trust. Without you, we will not reach our full potential as a school. We look to you as a partner in your child’s education.  We are excited to work with you and to greet you with a smile and open arms each time you walk through our gates.  

 

 To the staff, I know this is a team effort.  We work to make a difference in the lives of every student we meet. Often, the life lessons we teach are not realised until the students are ready to learn them -- years after they have left our school.

To the alumni, thank you for making this an academic home to which you are always happy to return to. We look forward to interacting with you in the remaining academic, sport and cultural events of the year. The college is strong because of your ongoing support.

 Let us finish the year with a flourish with unlimited potential and we are ready to meet the challenges head on!

 

We wish all our exam classes the best of luck in the forthcoming Cambridge IGCSE and AS/A Level exams. Always remember; ‘Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out’. – Robert Collier
