On Thursday 26 July, Ms Ball’s Year 12 Standard English class attended the National Theatre of Great Britain’s highly acclaimed performance of ‘The Curious incident of a dog in the Night Time’.

The performance was chosen as it was an interpretation of a novel, written by Mark Haddon, that the students enthusiastically studied  for Module B of their HSC course. The students thought the performance was incredibly well done as it was not only true to the novel but also utilised digital technology to bring the main character, Christopher’s, thoughts and fears to life on stage.

At the close of the performance patrons who sat near the students told Ms. Ball how impressed they were with the school’s polite and attentive manner culminating in the perfect end to a wonderful excursion.

In the the weeks leading up to our Multicultural Day festivities many boys got busy with their pens and entered a competition to produce the best poem to celebrate the wonderful diversity of our school community. The winners were presented with their prizes on the last day of term. They have proven that a skill with words not only lifts our spirits, but it can also bring tangible rewards! One hundred and thirty five dollars worth of prizes were distributed; there will be more opportunities for boys to exercise their pens for profit later in the year. Given the standard of entries for this competition the English department are in a frenzy of expectation about the next competition!

Congratulations to Eli Mansfield and William Knight who shared first prize. You can read their work, and see photos from the beautiful readings of the poems given on Multicultural Day. Congratulations to Darshan Neshabalan, Mohammed Hamza, Anargyros Kallos and Jay Silva who also won prizes. Many thanks to Avi Carleton and Billal Hassanzai for their beautiful readings on Multicultural Day.
