â€œThis is not the same as reality. But without belief in the possibility, your reality is going to be severely curtailed. We must avoid the temptation to begin with an analysis of what’s easy, or what’s probable, or even likely. We can only do our work justice by examining what’s possible, and then deciding if we care enough to pursue itâ€.

Canterbury Sport Uniform Update
Thank you to all parents for your patience with the Canterbury sport Uniform issues we are still encountering. Despite a number of meetings and promises it appears that Canterbury are no closer to being able to fill the back orders that parents have placed. As a result we have closed the Canterbury portalogue system today to prevent any further orders being able to be placed as Canterbury are not able to provide us with an estimated delivery date. We are also working with Canterbury to ensure that any orders that have been placed will either be delivered or parents given a full refund.
I fully realise that this is an incredibly frustrating experience for students and parents. We are currently negotiating with an alternative supplier and hope to have information on this to parents in the coming fortnight. In the meantime, any student that does not have a Kardinia sport uniform due to the Canterbury backlog is free to wear alternative clothing to PE classes and to sport. The only stipulation is that the clothing is comfortable and appropriate for sport activities.
International Family Week in the Junior School
International Family Week got off to a great start in the junior School this week. It was lovely to see parents and grandparents taking the opportunity to spend time in classrooms and to have lunch with their children around the school. I would invite all Junior School families to join us throughout the week and to help celebrate family week here at Kardinia. The family week breakfast on Thursday in the Centrepoint CafÃ© promises to be a highlight.
Have a great International Family Week!
