Grammar News 121 | December 2016

Welcome to this issue of Grammar News.

The diversity of the talents, interests and achievements of Melbourne Grammar School students is extraordinary. Each day staff guide students through a wide variety of learning and co-curricular experiences designed to foster a deep and abiding love of learning, facilitate personal growth and development, and create a sense of community.

In this issue we explore Diversity at Melbourne Grammar School. The diversity in our programmes, our accomplishments and our community all serve to enrich the educational experience of each and every student and, here we highlight some of these aspects. Our connections with Papua New Guinea (page 10) and the Indigenous community (page 22) are explored, as is the use of cultural references to inform Visual Art (page 12).

In addition, some upcoming changes at Wadhurst are outlined (page 20) and we include a touching story about an enduring friendship (page 27), which demonstrates the impact some fleeting human relationships can have.

I hope you enjoy reading this magazine.
