Hawk Assembly News

21/08/2017
Assembly Leaders: Kurtis and Perri
Acknowledgment of Country: Tallis Martin
Kurtis: A special welcome is extended to the study tour group from Seijo Junior High School & High School.  The staff and students of Harristown High hope that you enjoy your time with us.

Principal’s address

Mr Green welcome our visitors from Seijo and spoke to the following topics:
  • Congratulations to Balkuin who are leading in the Inter-house Attendance Competition and a special mention to Dherwain, coming second showing exemplary House Spirit at the Athletics Carnival and for being here.
  • Thanks to Tech Crew for the Spice Girls music; show your support as Hawks by going to the school musical ‘Popstars’ this weekend.
  • There is concern over some student behaviour and students need to lift to exemplary behaviour.
  • Mr Green entertained the Assembly with a story of his struggle to open a gate on a property in Charters Towers. He noted that his ability to open a gate does not matter to his work life but there are things in life that do matter: “Reading is something we all have to do. We have a vision that everyone us can read to the level required. Our reading will improve. Teachers will focus on the reading and assist but we need students to do their bit: read regularly.”

Visual Art Award

s

Ar
ts Prefects Claire and Musa celebrated the many achievements of our Visual Art students over the last few months. In particular, we are honouring the students selected as finalists and award winners in the following three competitions: Creative Generation Excellence Awards in Visual Art, USQ’s Future Visions and the Chronicle Junior Art Expo.
 
The Queensland government’s “Creative Generation Excellence Awards in Visual Art” recognises excellence in senior visual art. Year 11 students Kirra Thompson, Melisha McCarty, Samantha Bonell and Renz Buenceslao were accepted as finalists in this prestigious regional exhibition. Their work is currently hanging in the Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery, which is open to the public. You are welcome to visit the gallery and view their work. The exhibition will be officially opened on the 3rd of September, at which time awards will be announced.
 
We also had students selected as finalists in the Future Visions exhibition. The “Future Visions” art exhibition is run by the University of Southern Queensland and showcases the best artistic work of senior Visual Art students from across the region. Six of our Year 11 and 12 students were accepted as finalists in this prestigious exhibition and their work was hung in the art gallery at USQ. Congratulations to: Claire Russo, Alexandra Knight, Jack Lowien, Courtney Kinchela, Melisha McCarty and Bridee Reid. A special congratulations is extended to Bridee Reid in year 12 who was awarded the “Packer’s Prize” and received a cash prize.
 

The work of five of our Visual Art students was selected for display as finalists in The Chronicle’s Junior Art Expo. This competition was curated by the Toowoomba Art Society. Selected student artworks were hung at the Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery in a showcase of the region’s best student artwork: Bridee Reid, Georgia Hauser, Courtney Kinchela, Rahila Abdul Hadi, and Naheeda Narouz Ali excelled with a remarkable 3 works chosen for display.
