Year 9s are invited to an after-school sports event in the gym on Friday 12 March until 4:30pm. Parents are reminded to RSVP on Consent2Go. Our Year 12 Wellbeing Prefects will also be in attendance to assist staff, lead the fun and build culture.
Student of the Week
During our Wednesday Year 9 assembly, we like to honour the good things that the cohort are doing around the school, and so we have a ‘Student of the Week’ award.
The Student of the Week is selected from a shortlist of students who have received a SEQTA affirmation from a staff member. The winner receives their choice of a school stationery gift OR they can risk it all for what is in the ‘mystery box’! …and it seems that the lure of the mystery box is irresistible.
Please join me in congratulating Bailey M. and Zac J., who have both chosen a treasure from the mystery box this term. These boys both earned their affirmations for assisting staff members through their thoughtful actions.
Year 9 Success
One of our Year 9 students, Jeandré K., has recently excelled at the State Track & Field Championships winning the 100m and 200m sprint in the U16 category. He ran the 100m in a time of 11.17 and the 200m in 22.92.
We can’t wait to see him compete later in the year at the Interhouse Athletics Carnival and hopefully, he’ll set some new College record times in his preferred events. Congratulations, Jeandré!
Living Well – Story & Challenge
The Year 9s have begun their theme for 2021 which began on the first day of school with the gifting of a ‘talking stick’.
Over the next few terms, students will be engraving their life story on their talking stick. This will provide them with an opportunity for self-reflection, plus it will encourage them to share their life story with others in the year group. Students have spent the last few sessions preparing their sticks for engraving, watching safety videos and doing some personal research about their families.
