Postscript to Reflections Part 2.

With Michaela sick all of last week, I wasn't sure whether she would return in time to complete her reflections of her TS year. 

While the rest of the TS Team, quickly finished off Star Card business & prep for the Q&A with "prospective" 2017 TS  "applicants," Michaela beavered  with her reflections & TAG ( Tip, Advice, Good wish) for the incoming 2017 Team.

Bikefest 2016

GSG's Bikefest 2016 saw 129 bikes and 17 scooters lining the grass as students from Years 1-6 joined in the cycle festivities.

Reflections Part 2.

The highlight was getting to Platinum. That was also the good part!

The best thing for me was speaking at Assemblies.

Something I learnt was better team skills. 

My good wish for the 2017 TS Team is to achieve Double Platinum.


(Mentor's note: With a Q & A next week with…

We want to…
