From the School Captains

We’ve reached the end of Term 2! It is crazy to think that we are now officially halfway through the school year. The end of term is always a busy time and there have been some exciting things that have happened these past couple of weeks. 

Tickets are on sale now to see our school production of Matilda! We highly recommend buying tickets to see the show. This is a great way to show your support for all the people who have worked tirelessly to put this production together. Our school musicals are always a fun way to showcase the talents of our school community. I’ve been hearing some great things about Matilda and am very much looking forward to seeing the show! 

Last week, we spoke to Year 12 about motivation. As we come to the end of a busy term full of assessments, motivation can be quite low. But with Trials around the corner, starting in week 2 of next term, there is still a lot that needs to be done. We spoke about what to do when motivation is low and gave five tips on how to tackle a lack of motivation. 

Tip #1 – Remind yourself of your goals. 

Tip #2 – Form a study schedule. 

Tip #3 – Take regular breaks. 

Tip #4 – Be kind to yourself. 

Tip #5 – Support and use the support of those around you. 

It is great to be reminded of some good habits to maintain during a busy and stressful time. Unfortunately for Year 12, these holidays will not be a complete break from schoolwork as they will be studying for their upcoming Trial HSC exams. However, we encourage all students to ensure they take time to rest over these holidays so that they can come back refreshed next term! 

A careers expo was held on Friday where Year 12 students were given the opportunity to talk to a range of people from different universities. Hopefully this event has provided students with some guidance about what to do next year and opened them up to new options. Our school careers department is a great place to go if students are still struggling with what to do after school or are seeking some extra guidance. 

J-Walk is an SLC run event which takes place during lunchtime once a term. All students are welcome and it is a great opportunity for them to hear from God’s word and sing praises to Him. On Thursday, we were very grateful to have Dan from CRU as our guest speaker to speak about a biblical perspective on respectful relationships.
