Principal’s address – Lift up our school

Mr Green presented a few key messages before beginning his address.
  • Congratulations to Year 7s who braved the Year 7 camp to Murphy’s creek Escape on Friday, demonstrating courage as they looked down from the heights of the abseiling challenge or looked up at the Ropes Course challenge;
  • Compliment received on manners of students using the South Street crossing guard;
  • Barang won the Inter-house attendance last week; Balkuin only needed 2 more students to attend every day for last week to retain first place.
Looks, Litter and Language
  • Looks – bring the note if you are out of uniform and use the uniform exchange to be in uniform;
  • Litter – the litter left after breaks is disgusting; we need to lift in this area.
  • Language – our school grounds need to be places where swearing and foul language is not heard.
We are not in a good place at the moment. We need to lift.

National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence

Youth Support Coordinators Teresa and Paul spoke about the National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence on Friday. The focus this year is on bystanders and all students were asked to sign a pledge to take a stand against bullying.

Junior and Senior Choirs

Vocal Ensemble Captains, Shanyn and Abi, promoted the Junior and Senior Choirs.
  • Junior Choir – Thursday 1st break in the Lecture Theatre
  • Senior Choir – Thursday 2nd break in the Lecture Theatre
Rehearsal for the choirs will run until May, with a break for Musical rehearsals, then begin again in August. The choirs perform at Eisteddfods, the TYME festival, Presentation Night and the Paul Morton Festival. Opportunity to be nominated for prestigious choral and solo singing events such as CGen, MOST and SHEP, will come only to students in the choirs as Ms Matheson, the conductor, needs to know the student’s voice before she can nominate you. Learn vocal warm ups to help you with Musical and Arts Day performances and join in the fun of Music Ensemble socials.

‘Shave for a Cure’

Kurtis and Brooke, on behalf of the Interact committee, spoke about ‘Shave for a Cure’ and the Leukaemia Foundation. Every day another 35 people will be diagnosed with a blood cancer like leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma. Cancer is lethal and affects families and friends as well. Mr Lau, Mr Martin, Mr Rodios, Ms Hollman and Mr Krisanski offered to have their legs waxed and their hair shaved for $5 a strip, raising funds for The World’s Greatest Shave to provide emotional and practical support to families and fund vital research. For the price of a gold coin, students could have their hair coloured with hair chalk.
