[Monday 4 February] was the first day of the school year for many, and Prep students Pepi, Peggy and Maddy were glad to be back. And there were no shortage of activities on their first day, with the girls saying they did maths, read books, played with Lego and “relaxed”. Maddy said on their first day they spent some time on Collegiate’s “faith and life” program, where “you make yourself calm and relaxed . . . you lie down and don’t talk to other people,” she said. Not only was it Pepi’s first day of Prep, but also her very first day at Collegiate. She did not shy away from the action though, but enjoyed “playing in the playground with friends”. Peggy spent part of her day building a house. She said Lego was her favourite activity, simply “because it’s fun”.
