Principal's Address

Mr Green wished the students all the best with the exams and encouraged them to get a good night's sleep.  He told the story of two young people applying for a job, both with excellent written applications and both shortlisted for the interview. One applicant interviewed well and so did the second. However there was something different about the second applicant who, on entering the interview, knocked his knee on the table and dropped an expletive.
Through the interview, he did speak another swear word. The reason he didn't get the job was because he didn't practise the habit of mind, managing impulsivity. As a professional organisation that was expected of its employees.
 
L stands for language. Mr Green believes our language is dragging us down and affecting our reputation. We need to be mindful that swearing can be removed from our vocabulary at school. "Like a city without walls is a person who lacks self control." Control the way we behave and the way we speak. Remember the L words we need to lift: looks, litter, learning and language.

Futsal Competition

Hamish and Jesse encouraged students to sign up for the Year 7 Futsal competition which will be run at lunch times by the Year 12 Recreation Studies class.  The venues and times for each team will be in form rolls.
