Accelerated Business Studies students met with Minister for Foreign Affairs, Marise Payne, and food ambassador, Adam Liaw, at the launch of the public diplomacy program "Australia Now" on 19 March 2019. The program aims to strengthen and deepen bilateral ties, raise Australia's profile as an innovative, creative nation and build understanding beyond our landscape and lifestyle. It is developing business opportunities and building relationships with the countries of Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).

Presentation Day 2019
Congratulations to all the prizewinners at our 2018 Presentation Day on February 15th.
We welcomed Michael Tomilaris as our keynote speaker, a Tech Old Boy from the class of 1978. He is one of the longest-serving members of the team behind SBS Sports and is the anchor fronting the Australian public television broadcaster's cycling programs.
Presentation Day ran very smoothly thanks to the organisational efforts of Mr Trotman and Ms Feigen. There were some outstanding music performances, thanks to Mr Gamage, and Miguel Mariano performed a musical solo. Thanks to our many parents, P&C and special guests for celebrating our outstanding academic achievements of 2018 with us.
Creativity and Innovation
Year 7 participated in a Creativity and Innovation Workshop on 12 December 2018. The aim was to inspire them into thinking about their future careers and to introduce them to terms like "machine learning", "artificial intelligence" and "blockchain".
As part of the workshop the students had to build a tower out of only dried pasta, 1 metre of string and 1 metre of sticky tape, but be strong enough to hold a marshmallow. The winning team, with a 65cm tower was Paramvir, Mahdi, Caleb and Justin. Well done, boys!
