Mr Dickson’s Year 10 HASS Academic Extension class were the chief organisers of this year’s ANZAC Service. Students were very respectful and this is great credit to all. A number of students from Mr Dickson’s class gave short speeches about various aspects of Australia’s military experience. There were also memorable musical performances by students including Holly Ranson, Selena Tan, Ashkaan Singh, Olivia Kirk, Daniel Skinner, Skye Ewington, Lilli Coulson and Suzan Eyssautier. Our Head Girl ,Sophia Ammali and Head Boy, Max Uchino, laid a wreath on behalf of school staff and students. Eva Mustapic also spoke about her forthcoming trip on the Premier’s Anzac Tour to Vietnam. We were honoured to have as our special guest, our local Member of Parliament, Dean Nalder MLA. Mr Nalder had an opportunity to answer questions on life in parliament from Mr Dickson’s class afterwards. Mr Lloyd, Mr Wilding , Mr Stapleton and their teams also played a vital role on the day. Congratulations to Mr Dickson and the Year 10 HASS Academic Extension class for their hard work in marking this significant day in our national life.

Congratulations to Mrs Raich, Mr Lilleyman, Toby, Jordan, Emerald, Georgia and Xaviera for their efforts in getting shaved. We also had Declan from Year 8 and Ms Purvis shave their heads in support of our fund raising. Thanks to Andy Saxton, Mr Goodenough and some Year 12 students for their shaving efforts. Well done to Mr Wilding and as well as Jacob from Year 10 for setting up the sound system. Max Uchino, our Head Boy, did a magnificent job hosting this lunchtime event. The efforts of Sophia Ammali in taking the photos as well as of the others who helped with the collection made the day a roaring success. As at 3pm on March 14th we have raised over $7200. You can still donate at this link https://bit.ly/2tKQjed

 

I would especially like to acknowledge Andy Saxton our School Chaplain. He is the main driving force of this Year 12 Student Council event. The 2020 now have a serious challenge if they are going to raise more than this amount next year but I have already heard them discussing who will be shaved in 2020.

Upon our return to school Perry gave us the news that he had been selected and attended the National Gallery of Australia for the Summer Arts Scholarship. Applicants were selected late last year so he's already been and had an amazing experience.

 

This is a great win for our school as only 16 winners were selected from across the country

On Friday 550 of our Year 7 and 8 students were able to be addressed by Glen from the Hopeful Institute on “Finding their Purpose”. Students learned about resilience and setting goals to achieve their passion and more importantly about self-belief.

 

During Period 2 over 500 Year 9 and 10 students also attended a presentation by Glen. The focus for them was called ‘Jailbreak’ which ideally about leaving past events in the past and moving forward to achieve personal goals. All students across all 4 Year groups were enthralled by Glen with many of them walking away feeling motivated and inspired to achieve their dreams and set about putting things in place to reach them!
