On 27 and 28 October, five students from Year 9 (Olivia, Hannah, Jerusha, Charli and Ava) attended the Global Youth Advocacy Forums. We participated in discussions and workshops around issues of globalisation, how we can better ourselves and establishing collaborations with other schools.
For a long time, I thought leaders had to be fearless. But now, I know that true courage comes not from doing things without fear, but from doing things in spite of it.
As a College leader, I would not only work to continue what the previous leaders have achieved, but listen to your views and opinions on how we can enhance this great community even more.
Congratulations to our 2020 Middle School Leadership Group announced today.

We heard that today you’re exploring the Good Samaritan story, so we thought we’d share our thoughts with you.
Now this story – as it happens – is rather extreme. To be a Good Samaritan you don't have to wait until someone’s half dead on the side of the road to do something - although if a classmate has to get lunch from Cafe Bene - they are very much at risk of dying from boredom in that long line!
We can never know what other people are thinking.
