The end of Term 1 is quickly approaching! It has been a busy term, with Open Day being a highlight. It was wonderful to walk around our College on Open Day and see the myriad of opportunities our children are able to experience. The day was a great success and we thank all families who attended and supported the College on the day. We hope you enjoyed the day as much as we did.

House Events

Throughout the term there has been an increased focus on developing a connection to our Houses. Every second week our staff and students have been getting together in their houses a participating in a range of fun activities. On Tuesday morning our houses will be competing in a House Team Challenge – details below. Parents are most welcome to attend this special assembly and we look forward to sharing the results with you.


It was lovely to come together as a College and to celebrate Easter at our Whole College Easter Service. Getting together for such special events is a reminder of what a wonderful community we have at Investigator College. On Wednesday 5 May, the Junior School students also held an Easter Egg Hunt. Students really enjoyed spending time with their Buddy Classes and going in search of some Easter Eggs.

We hope you enjoy the Easter break and that you have the opportunity to spend some time with your family at this special time.
