Assembly News Dated 23rd May 2018

Assembly : Wednesday, 23rd May 2018
Assembly was opened by Mrs Kennedy
Senior Plays: Four of our talented students performed a small skit to promote our Senior Plays which are happening on Thursday, 31 May and Friday, 1st June.  Tickets are now available from the College office - $5 for students and concession holders and $10 for adults. 
Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea: HSSC’s Student Representative Council (SRC) are inviting staff and students to participate in this event which is being held next Tuesday, 29th May in the undercover area near the canteen.  Everyone is invited to bring along a treat to share for morning tea with their friends (e.g. cupcakes, a bag of chips and preferably nothing that requires heating or cooling).  Students can wear a flash of yellow (a ribbon, a tie, shoelaces) and will have the opportunity to participate in a range of activities from best cupcake decoration contest, to a 3-legged race. Students can earn House points for participating and as this is a fundraiser, we would appreciate if every student also brings a gold coin donation, to help with the school’s donation to support the Cancer Council. We hope to have a fun day and contribute to finding a cure. Please note that this is not a free dress day.
Guest Speaker – Leila Fisher: The White Ribbon Foundation is a domestic violence prevention agency which helps promote healthy relationships.  The ‘Breaking the Silence’ Schools Program run by White Ribbon Australia supports schools to bring about a commitment to stop violence. Leila Fisher from White Ribbon Australia spoke to students about what a healthy relationship should be like.  For more information click here:
