A big thank you to Mr Bright for his organisation of our Harmony Day assemblies on Tuesday. The support from all students and faculties involved makes these occasions very special, and our students are lucky to have the exposure to the many speakers and items involved.
I wish we could have a carnival once every term. The atmosphere is relaxed and happy, students are becoming more involved, the competition is good natured but hotly contested, and it is a chance to catch up and chat with staff. I am deeply impressed with the school spirit that develops through participation, fun and healthy competition.
A big thank you to all for a wonderful day.
Our annual swimming carnival this year was a riot of colour, noise, enthusiasm and house spirit. Student attendance was the best in years. We find that each year is better than the last as students realise what a great day it is, even for non-competitive swimmers. We are very lucky to have enthusiastic house captains who promoted the carnival with amusing antics in the preceding week, as well as a wonderful staff group led by the PD/H/PE Department, who run events on the day. Big congratulations to all staff and students who participated, and to TINGIRA who came away with the honours in a closely fought and entertaining competition.
