Hawk Assembly News


​Assembly 29th November

Assembly Leaders: Junior Secondary Leaders, Elise and Zac

Acknowledgment of Country: Darren Galvin

Principal’s address

Relating an anecdote about dogs and a hotel, where dogs come out as far better mannered than humans, Mr Green made the point that an animal can show us with their service and loyalty a lesson about how as human beings we can behave.

He encouraged students to not drop standards of behaviour – do the right thing! Focus on being a great student at our school so that we can talk about student behaviour in positive terms.

IMPACT Presentations

Throughout the year, a group of year eight and nine students participated in the IMPACT program. These students completed three online courses, first starting with critical thinking, then legal thinking and finally debating. Every week on a Thursday afternoon, these students would video chat their teacher who was based in Brisbane, learning new skills related to debating, legal and critical thinking. This opportunity provided students to expand their knowledge and learn new things that they would not normally learn in other classes.

Congratulations to the following students:

  • Georgia Anderson
  • Isaac Budde
  • Sommer Cooney
  • Ella Dwyer
  • Issra Maryol
  • Kaileigh McEwen
  • Jessica Paech
  • Kaylee Richters
  • Samuel Rogers
  • Rebecca Sherrie
  • Bonnie Wilson

Principal's Address

Mr Green congratulated students on their attendance. Good things happen when you turn up. He related an anecdote about his Saturday afternoon difficult encounter with a blue tongue lizard, which he felt worthy of being uploaded to YouTube as a funny video had it been so captured. He was not sure of the first aid procedure if he'd been bitten. He has invited a special guest to explain what you watch out for regarding safety around reptiles during summer.

Well done if you know that you've modelled our school values this year, whether others have been watching you or not. Mr Green read a letter from a community member about two such students who assisted a vision impaired girl on the street. He recognised the students for their efforts, presenting Logan and Chance with certificates for outstanding community assistance.

Finally Mr Green congratulated the Lucky Draw recipient, Caleb from G08, who had 98.75% attendance and a report card of excellent results.

Musical Item

The Year 8 Music Class performed the Adele song "Rolling in the Deep", conducted by Ms Matheson. Well done students.

First Aid presentation

Mr Thompson addressed the audience how students should take care during the summer, with particular regard to reptile bites. Harry Hawk joined Mr Thompson on stage to demonstrate correct first aid procedure for treatment of a snake bite.


Assembly enjoyed a presentation of selection of images from the year.
