WWI Honour Board Rededication
On Friday 23 November, our school was privileged to host NSW Premier Hon. Gladys Berejiklian at our WW1 Honour Board Rededication Assembly. Fittingly, on such a significant occasion, our entire school community did a wonderful job demonstrating the absolute best that our school has to offer. Former students, staff, parents and distinguished guests, all spoke with such pride and admiration of the efforts of our students whose respectful conduct throughout the day was simply outstanding.
2018 Intermediate Mathematics Olympiad

On Tuesday 6 February two players from the Sydney Swans, Heath Grundy and Gary Rohan, came to visit the school. In the morning, they took Year 8 for a practical instruction lesson as part of the AFL component of PDHPE. However from 11.30 onwards they gave the Year 11 and Year 12 PDHPE classes a lecture and subsequently a Q and A. Year 11 and 12 took this opportunity to gain an insight into sports medicine rehabilitation procedures, specialised training programs designed to improve both individual and team performance, and the interaction between skeletal and muscular body systems. Core points of enquiry included the ethical use of local anaesthetic and the impact this has on the rehabilitation process and the concussion policy of the AFL which, over recent years, has been surrounded by controversy. Year 11 and 12 students were afforded valuable examples which were extremely relevant to their studies of Senior PDHPE which will undoubtedly be beneficial for use in the HSC exam.
The Angelo Anestis Aquatic Centre – Bexley hosted the annual Sydney Tech swimming carnival. Under blue skies we had the best attended carnival this century according to Mr Grinham, and it was a chance for our swimmers to showcase their talent early in the season. The SRC had students dress in house colours and this added a lot of fun to the event. Congratulations to Eugene Waetford who broke the 200m freestyle with a time of 2:25.00 and Russel Koh the 50m Freestyle record with a time of 26.03. Thanks to all staff for the smooth running of the carnival.
