Principal's Address

Mr Green spoke to the following:
  1. Earphones are not part of the school uniform and students should not wear them as part of their uniform in the playground or during class.
  2. Behaviour: Mr Green took a print out of one day's classes to the P&C meeting.  There were over 500 classes that occurred on one day for our 1661 students. Mr Green asked the P&C, "How many incidents of misbehaviour would occur in a typical day?" He then explained that the Leadership team and staff want the number to be as small as possible. At the moment there are fewer than 10 major incidents and fewer than 10 minor. The P&C were impressed thinking they'd be many more. Mr Green's message is that it is still not good enough. We want there to be days when there are no incidents. 90% of students have a clean slate regarding behaviour. We are moving in the right direction. Students are asked to think that any incident of misbehaviour is their last.

Japanese Study Tour

Pavi and Takuma welcomed our special guests, the teachers and Japanese students from Tokyo visiting Harristown on a Study Tour in both English and Japanese languages.

One of the visitors introduced their song, translated by Takuma. ‘Ue wo muite aruko’ which was sung by Kyu Sakamoto
This song tells us “Don’t look down, keep looking up and stay positive. The song was a great success around 50 years ago in Japan and was also a big hit in America.
In summary, everyone tends to look down when feeling bad, but if you look up you are going to get a positive feeling.

Junior Arts Expo

Arts Captains Becky and Will spoke about the Junior Art Expo, curated by the Toowoomba Art Society and Chronicle.  The work of three of our Visual Art students was selected for display at the Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery in a showcase of the region's best student artwork. The students, Somayeh Ghavamjoo, Milrus Caguimbal and Claire Russo were presented with certificates by Mr Green.

Drama Production

Drama Production Captains, Maggie and Becky, invited students to the performances of "Gate 38". The play is set in an airport with the focus on four groups of young people - what they're doing and where they're going. They become trapped at this point of departure as technology fails and contact with the outside world is slowly and mysteriously cut off. The four shows begin Wednesday, 10th August and finish Saturday evening with tickets available from the P&C Shop.
