Assembly notes

29/05/2014
Camilla and friends
​Camilla and Year 12 friends

Assembly leaders: Lachlan and Emity

National Anthem: The Ensemble and Rianna Jenkinson

Acknowledgement of Country: Zach Miles

Principal's address: Ms Monagle

Engage with school through attendance and completion of tasks: 

It is week 6 and soon we will be on holiday but there is much to be done before then. Your teachers have guided you towards knowledge that they have scaffolded and explicitly demonstrated.  What happens now is over to you: aim for a B or better. Put your mind to the completion of tasks.

Year 11 and 12 students: you will enter exam block soon. Listen to your teachers when they explicitly speak about your attendance during exam block.

Your uniform your school and your reputation:

Students, you look fabulous in your uniforms but with the uniform must go positive behaviour. The community should develop positive opinions about our school which they will base upon your behaviour while you are in the uniform.  Be mindful of your behaviour while in uniform as it impacts on your school.

Farewell to Exchange student, Camilla:

Simran shared memories of Camilla's time at our school before she returns to her home 14300km away. Her friendship has been valued.

Camilla spoke to the assembly on her last day after 11 months.  She thanked Mr Green for the opportunity to be at school and spoke of her sense of Harristown community and pride. She has learnt much from Mr Green's words and from her teachers, thanking them for their hard work and looking after her. Camilla thanked the students who have shared with her and she will always be grateful to them. Mitch spoke on behalf of Y17 Form Class and Camilla was presented with gifts, including a signed 'I heart HSHS' t-shirt. 

World Challenge 2015

Coran and Emma spoke about World Challenge, reflecting on their experiences in Borneo. The next trip will be with Mr Lau and Ms Beckmann in September 2015 to Sri Lanka, a small tropical island off the southern tip of India. The itinerary includes phases of acclimatisation, a trek, the project to make a difference in a less fortunate community and rest and relaxation.  Students experience a different culture and are also building life skills, confidence and preparedness for the future as they challenge themselves to accomplish goals.

If you are interested in going on the World Challenge expedition and you are in Year 9, 10, or 11, there is a Parent Info presentation on Thursday the 5th of June at 6:00pm in the Lecture Theatre.
