In Semester 1, over 150 students from years 7 to 11 received Blue Awards as a result of consistent effort in all their subjects. To recognise the effort of these boys, the executive teachers in conjunction with Mr Elaro, decided to treat the award recipients to a day at the movies. After period one on Tuesday, 20th of August,132 students caught the train from Homebush to Rhodes.

Years 7, 8 and 9 watched the reinvented Disney classic “The Lion King”, while the older boys watched the action packed “Hobbs and Shaw”. The day was a very good experience and was great to be recognised for our academic efforts. In addition to being lots of fun and enjoyment, it provides an incentive for students to strive for a blue awards next semester so they too can have a day out at the movies.

On behalf of all blue award recipients, I would like to thank the executive team; Mr Elgood, Ms Paleothedoras, Mrs Shadwick and Mr Achmad with a special thanks to Mr Elaro for organising the day.
