In the true tradition of Sydney Technical High School, Tech pride stood mighty tall once again on the basketball courts in 2016. We were humble in our victories and gracious in our defeat as we battled through the CHS first grade basketball knockout competition.

I applied for the Engineering and Technology Cadetship Program run by Professional Cadetships Australia (PCA), as advised by Mr Zigas. I opted for the Technology Cadetship run by Westpac Banking Corporation.  I had to fill out an application of seven questions and submit it to PCA.  After two weeks, I was contacted by PCA and was told that I was successful in gaining an interview with them regarding the cadetship.

This was enormous success as I was briefed that, out of over 2000 applicants I had made it to the top 21. As this interview I was asked a few questions about my high school proceedings and also my relevance to the technology program.  Following this, after a couple of weeks, I received another email telling me that I was shortlisted by Westpac (the top 21!).  I was required to participate in three tasks at the campus, being an individual task, a group task and an individual interview.  Here I was required to collaborate with the other cadets who had made it here as well.  At the end of such a long and tiresome process I am glad to say that I have been offered the cadetship at Westpac. 

I can’t wait to start my new life with them. Of course, this could not have been possible without the support and assistance of Mr Zigas and Ms Lyons, to whom I am eternally grateful.

The school celebrated RUOK? day on Friday 26 August with a student led assembly. This day is a very important wellbeing initiative on the schools’ calendar about the importance of that simple question: RUOK?????

Read the heartfelt speeches from assembly by Tyler Hagiwara of Year 9 and Jack McDougall of Year 10.

Our student led assembly was followed by a popular BBQ lunch very kindly supported by our parent community. Deputy Mr Kirk Grinham stepped in to cook with our Interact students, who overcame a few issues relating to missing BBQ tongs!

Check out their website for further information about this important lifesaving program at https://www.ruok.org.au/
