Principal’s Address – You’ve got to do better than that!

Mr Green expressed thanks to Ms Monagle and Mr Floyd for their work in his absence. He related three stories with a common theme:

  • Participating in the Gold Coast marathon and setting a goal to run the race in a certain time. Despite his efforts, he finished just short of his goal. The thought: ‘You’ve got to do better than that?’ How?
  • Participating in ukulele lessons and, after performing a discordant note, hearing the comment: ‘You’ve got to do better than that?’ How?
  • After his birthday, he attempted to make Anzacc biscuits. Again he heard the comment: ‘You’ve got to do better than that?’ How?

Mr Green encouraged students: Look at your report for each subject: How can I do better? You’ve got to do better than that!

JB HI Fi voucher was given to Year 11 student, Shai, who has met the school standards with 95.13% attendance. Well done!
