In a long standing reciprocal partnership spanning nearly two decades, Somerville House has once again played host to fifteen exchange students from Chiba Girls’ High School in Chiba, Japan.
With Christian values infused into our programs, priorities and operational principles, the spiritual life of our school is foundational to our wonderful Somerville House community. Every day staff and students go about living out faith in the offices and classrooms of the School. However, for one week of the year, Senior Chaplain Ms Chris O’Gorman says we celebrate not only the birthday of the Chapel, but the on-going and vibrant spiritual life of the School with Chapel Week.
In May, our Music Department welcomed acclaimed Australian Conductor, Dr Ingrid Martin for the first ever Guest Conductor Program in the history of the School.
Today, Somerville House is fortunate to have many committed parents who volunteer in the School’s Tuckshop and Uniform Shop, as well as the ever-increasing number of support groups under the Parents and Friends’ (P&F) Association umbrella. In the lead up to our 120 Year Commemoration Day in October, we thank and celebrate the generosity of all the parents and volunteers, past and present, whose endeavours and unwavering support towards Somerville House have contributed to the vibrant school community that flourishes today.
With much of today’s media coverage often focused on job losses stemming from automation, a recently published report from Deloitte Access Economics, The Path to Prosperity: Why the Future of Work is Human, looked at how robots and technology is increasingly taking over monotonous and repetitive tasks, resulting in the creation of more interesting jobs for humans. Principal, Mrs Kim Kiepe, said she is encouraged by the findings and is proud of how they validate the academic, social and emotional learning opportunities available to all students at a school such as Somerville House.
