Thankfully, I settled in well with the help of the boarding house that acted like a second home to me. Heather Reilly House has provided me with an environment that is warm and welcoming, even as a new student, I never felt isolated with the girls and staff around me. Mrs Lawson’s door is always open to help us all the way on our new journey. The house is not only just a place for us to stay, our supervisor, Mrs Lawson puts in a tremendous amount of effort to organise events and trips for us; The doors are always open The warmth of Heather Reilly House my favourite being our trips to the Hot Springs and Bowling this term. This Year Mrs Lawson introduced a “Take Away Night”. We had Japanese and Chinese in the 2nd Term and this Term we are looking forward to trying Vietnamese and Russian food for dinner. In the last term we are going “Australian” and having an Aussie Barbie! Another fun item that was introduced was the games night. Our House Leaders Stacy, Ichika and Nancy run this twice a term at supper time. They arrange a fun group game and get every girl involved. They are really fun nights and lots of laughter is heard throughout the sitting room. Even though I love living in Australia and studying here, I was set many challenges in the classroom. But as the Term progressed, support and encouragement from my teachers has really helped me to settle here. I have grown as a person and learnt to be independent and to be a more positive and resilient person in my new environment at The Peninsula School and Australia. The friends I have made in boarding will be my friends for life. So I am very privileged to have had the opportunity to come through the OPEN DOORS of Heather Reilly House.
