Mr Green spoke today about his wish that students who enrol in our school adopt our school values, embodied by the word Pride, and abide by them. 

He acknowledged that at times students don't work well in our school and, while not a wish for any student, exclusion from our school is an option. He sent a clear message to students  that we want our school to be a safe place and that school administration take action against those who don't do the right thing.  "My desire is that you stay at this school by doing the right thing all of the time and that you seek, with me, to make our school the school of choice," he finished.

Georgia and Victoria spoke on behalf of the Interact Club about Epilepsy Queensland and the funds raised by the Character Day during Library Week last year.  They presented a $752 cheque to Brendan Murrell, a former Hawk, whose daughter Mia was diagnosed with epilepsy.  Brendan thanked Harristown on behalf of Epilepsy Queensland for raising the funds and raising awareness about epilepsy.  The Interact Club organise functions for various charities and projects throughout the year.  Students can attend a morning tea on Thursday to get involved.

Mr Forknall gave vital information to the Year 11 students about the Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE). The presentation can be found under related links on the Senior Curriculum page.
