During the July school holidays I hosted a flash mob choir. So what's a flash mob choir you ask?

It is a number of people from all walks of life who come together in a hall and with the help of music conductor/composer to get a chance to sing like no one is watching or listening. You're given a song sheet have a few practice runs and then just sing your heart out. The only requirement to attend is to be equipped with enthusiasm, have any type of voice and have a passion for the cause it's supporting.

Well in this case it was my cause UBelong, a project to help foster a culture of welcoming and inclusiveness in our community and around Australia.

Earlier in the year I heard of a place called City Recital Hall with Richard Gill and how they have started a trend called a 'flash mob choir'. I was very interested. I sent Richard and Elaine an email not expecting a response let alone an invitation to have my own flash mob choir. I was humbly blown away!

Richard Gill (World renowned composer), Elaine Chia (City Recital Hall CEO), the team and I had a meeting and we discussed what it involved and how honored they were to be a part of my cause uBelong.

So the mission began....

The Exodus Foundation at Ashfield, is an organisation that meets the needs of Sydney’s poor and homeless by connecting each guest with the professional services they need to break their cycle of poverty. Their mission is to be a provider of food, primary health care and crisis support to Sydney’s homeless and aim to deliver services to the highest possible standard. Their generous and benevolent activities are supported by communities in the form of donations, volunteering and strategic partnerships.

During term two, the SRC spoke to the school about helping this foundation. Throughout the remainder of the term, students began to provide food cans to give as donations to the organisation. Each assembly, students were also urged to donate a few dollars.

The evening will cover the process undergone for the transition of the students into year 9 and the NESA (NSW Education Standards Authority) requirements. The information given will be more about the subject selection process, rather than about specific subjects.

Where: Homebush Boys High School hall
When: Thursday 24th of August
Time: 6.00pm start

A subject information booklet will also be handed out on the night to help in this decision.

This meeting is for parents. However, students are most welcome to attend. The information will be repeated for year 8 within the following weeks during their classes.

I am part of a male hip hop crew called STEPZ. We have performed together as a crew for the last 4 years. Last month, I travelled to Pasadena USA to compete with my hip hop crew to represent Australia in the World of Dance 2017 competition. Our dance performance placed 4th in the world out of 27 crews. There were 30 countries represented at this competition. It was an incredible moment and one I will never forget.

On the 15th June my team and I (accompanied by Mr Howard and Ms Hankinson) played goalball.

Goalball is a sport that is played in the Paralympics by players who can’t see. It can also be played by many people such as people who don’t have any issues in their body or people who just like to play. It is a worldwide sport for many countries and many people to enjoy.

We drove to netball central at Sydney Olympic park to play goalball against schools across NSW.
