The College’s Academic Assembly (Chris Nolan awards) was held on Tuesday, July 26. As a College, we place great importance on recognising those students whose results have placed them in the top 10% of their respective year level. I also wish to acknowledge all students for their efforts in Semester 1, for some, placing in the top 10% is probably not viable, but knowing you have done your absolute best is also a wonderful result. It was great to see so many parents in attendance in support of your son. See the list of award winners below.
On Monday, July 25, all Year 7 and 8 students viewed a drama performance from Brainstorm Productions. The main themes were body image, eating disorders and mental health. The boys should be congratulated for the way they entered into the session and no doubt have taken away many lessons moving forward. We understand the transition to secondary college and all the physical, emotional and social changes that are accruing can place huge anxieties on everyone from time to time. Hopefully after viewing this production the boys can see that they are not alone in the challenges they are being presented with.
