Principal’s address 'From little things ...'

 
  1. Interhouse Attendance Competition: After the first three weeks of Term 2, Balkuin is leading the way, closely followed by Bonda with Barang and Dherwain tying for 3rd place.
  2. 'From little things ...': Mr Green related historical incidents that began from small incidents: from a lie concocted in Denver Colorado by four reporters needing to fill the newspaper, a story about American engineers used to assist with the Great Wall of China flared tensions to grow into the Boxer Rebellion; a father and son with a homemade rocket and sparkler set off a blaze in the Valley Forge. In history something big can start from a small, untrue or unthinking beginning. Small things can unite and bond or divide and split a community. Seek the help of a trusted person on staff and work through the layers to deal with the issues. Our focus on relationships includes attending to the detail to make our community strong.
  3. MAJR squad: The video launch of a special project MAJR, with elite super humans who convey our school values: PRIDE.
