Hawk Assembly Notes


National Anthem: Ensemble and Chloe and Becky

Assembly Leaders: School Captains, Alex Hohn and Chloe Ledger

Acknowledgement of Country: Mr Forknall

Principal’s address: Mr Green

Mr Green welcomed all students especially our 304 new Year 7 students and 85 new students in Years 8-12. He spoke of the importance for these new students to understand what it is to be a Hawk and a student at Harristown. Lucky draws will continue in 2016. The winner of the lucky draw receives a voucher or iTunes card if they meet the school targets for behaviour, effort and attendance. 

Mr Green claimed to be the greatest tennis player of all time … in his family. He spoke of Roger Federer who, when asked his opinion on another tennis player, guardedly replied that he was a fine tennis player with fine matches and wins but he is not in the Top 10. This is because the difference between a good and great tennis player is consistency: to always play well. This fellow needs to improve his consistency to be in the Top 10. Mr Green related that to school: Every day counts – being here every day, excellent behaviour and maximum effort every day, paying attention and bringing what you need every day. The ability to produce every day is the difference between good and great students.

Swimming Carnival and Sports News

Mr Wilkes spoke about the upcoming Swimming Carnival on Friday 5th. Balkuin was last year’s winner. Sports Coordinators will call for nominations during House meetings. The House Swims will happen – everyone gets the chance to be in the pool. 

Year 8 and 9 sport selections will happen Thursday 28th January and Year 10s will do selections next Wednesday. The Year 7 students will select on Friday 29th January. The Sports calendar and all news is on the noticeboard outside the yellow gym and students are asked to check here for their trial dates.

Assembly finished with the School Song.


School photos will be taken on Thursday 11 Feb (Week 3). All students will be required to be in their Formal Uniform.  Year 10, 11 & 12 students require the school tie. Named envelopes will be distributed during form class – you must have your envelope on photo day even if you are not purchasing photos.

Wet weather procedures will be in place during breaks when required.

Students are to observe the out of bounds areas especially the cricket pitch on the top oval, Cricket club shed and the Staff car park.
