Year 12 Mentors
​Year 12 Mentors

Assembly Leaders: School Vice-Captains, Brittania and Scott

Acknowledgement of Country: Savanah Orcher

Principal's Address:

Mr Green began his address 'Remove the Obstacles' by demonstrating his method to vacuum his house, and the ways to move obstacles when he is vacuuming. Drawing the comparison with students working, he declared, " the vacuuming task is achieved better by removing obstacles."  He gave examples of the obstacles students need to overcome as they work to achieve at school:

  • lack of sleep
  • lack of a home study space
  • not being on time
  • not having the right equipment
  • not paying attention

"You have the choice: to systematically remove the obstacles one by one," he said. He encouraged students to take a moment to step back and remove the obstacles to work before starting work.
