Assembly : Wednesday, 29th

Queen’s Baton Relay: Mrs Kennedy
informed students about the Queen’s Baton Relay and how it is a ‘once in a
lifetime opportunity’ to be a part of. The
journey of the Baton started at Buckingham Palace in London and will finish on
the Gold Coast in time for the Commonwealth Games. Mrs Kennedy encouraged interested
students to complete the green nomination form that could be obtained from the
Student Support Desk. Nomination forms contain the eligibility rules and need
to be returned to the office by 28th April.
Student Awards: Breanna Pledge was presented with her Chisholm House Leader
Certificate and Estelle Lancaster was presented with her Values Certificate for
volunteering for the Hampton Summer Long Lunch. Both these students were absent
at the previous assemblies.
School Property: Mrs Kennedy was disappointed at the lack of respect that some of
our students are showing towards our new buildings. This week there was an incident where ink had
been smeared over the floor in K Block (K16) and the cleaners have had to use
harsh solvents to remove the ink. Some of the room numbers have also been
removed recently from K Block. Students were requested to report any incidents
of this type immediately to their classroom teacher or a Deputy Principal as
this is one of our school values - Taking Care of this Place.
Religious Instruction: R.I. Lessons for all year levels will be held today in the
Lecture Theatre. Years 8, 9 and 10 during Period 1 and Year 7 during Period 2.

Crazy Hair Day: Mrs Barker reiterated that this is
a crazy hair day only, not a free dress

support this fantastic cause in a good way.

parents and carers by the end of the week.
