Farewell Year 12!
The high, high heels and white dresses were out in force last night at the Year 12 Graduation. It was a ‘feel good night’, with many smiles and much laughter. We were very happy that Ellie Egan joined us for the celebration. Today the whole School is enjoying the traditional Fun Day, with games, a jumping castle and popcorn. We are looking forward to the Farewell Concert tomorrow. After that, it’s back to business as HSC study intensifies.
Two Year 12 students received some excellent news this week. Katie Lang has been nominated for Callback, for her outstanding HSC dance composition and her dance performance. And Gabrielle Landers as been nominated for Encore, a selection of the best HSC music performances. Well done girls!
Sporting Success
Congratulations to our Basketballers: 4 teams have made the Grand Finals this week. Tangara Whirlwinds (Year 6) won their Grand Final on Tuesday, and the Tangara Stars (Year 6) played extremely well, but were narrowly defeated. Good luck to our two Year 10 teams who are playing this Friday night.
Francesca Sugiaman finished Year 12 with 3 medals at CIS Athletics on Tuesday. She placed 2nd in Long Jump, 2nd in Triple Jump, and 3rd in High Jump. We wish Francesca all the best for the NSW All Schools Athletics competition later this week.
Welcome to our 2020 School Captains
We had a very moving Induction Ceremony on Tuesday, welcoming our 2020 Captains. The whole school was present, together with parents and families of the Captains, and the Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Byrne. It was also an opportunity to thank our outgoing leaders for their contribution. In her final speech as 2019 School Captain, Chantal Kos thanked her fellow Year 12 students: “It has been an honour to come to school each morning, to experience the love and friendship that each student has extended to others, and to leave in the afternoon knowing that the next day I can experience it all again.”
Thank you Channy and all of Year 12 for your outstanding leadership.
I wish all our families and staff a well-deserved break and look forward to returning refreshed in Term 4. Enjoy the Spring sunshine!
Dr Katrina George
