Principal’s Report

Congratulations to our zone cross country students who achieved fabulous success on Wednesday. It was wonderful to hear of Jessica Guo’s (11) win and also the success of our 17 year old boys who will run at the Regional Final. Congratulations to all our other competitors for their wonderful participation on the day.

Our Year 12 debating team has been moving forward successfully – combining debating with the completion of their exams. Well done.

Yesterday the SRC ran another successful ASPIRE day for our Year 7 students. This amazing day has been designed and implemented by our SRC students. Year 10 and Year 9 students lead this event. Through a series of games, activities and reflections students gain insight into the meaning of our school values:

Acceptance        Service        Participation       Integrity          Respect       Endeavour

Special thank you to Julia Tran and Aniruddh Chennapragada of Year 10 for their leadership of this special day. Thank you to Ms St Louis who guides our SRC and ensured the day was a wonderful success.

Thank you both to our staff and to parents of Year 7 for attending the Year 7 parent teacher night. These nights are so important to ensuring a successful learning partnership between teachers, parents and students.

Thank you to Ms Fernandez and Mr Wong for organising a fabulous year meeting for year 9.

Congratulations to Darshana Kannan (11)  who competed in the U17 Netball Championship at Newcastle during the long weekend playing 17 games over the three days.  Darshana has been playing State Age Championship since she was 11 years old.

Next Wednesday, Year 12 will be introduced to a very special award that they are eligible to apply for. This award is a joint award between the University of Sydney and JRAHS and recognises a male and female student’s academic success, leadership, sportsmanship and service to the community. Brendan Ma, one of the 2015 Award’s Recipient, will return to share his journey at Sydney University
