From the Principal

June 2004.

The fine traditions set by former pupils of our school are certainly being maintained this year.  We have two 14 year old boys who have been included in the Australian Team to compete in the 45th International Mathematics Olympiad from 9-18th July in Athens, a Year 12 student competing in the International Physics and another in the International Chemistry Olympiad.  As teams are composed of four or five members only drawn from across Australia, selection is indeed a great honour.
For those of you who missed Alan Best’s Annual Musical “Godspell”, (or should I now say Scott Copeman’s (1995) “Godspell”), you certainly missed a great spectacle.  Peter Ballantyne (2000) came back to provide his skills with light and sound as did Stephen Chin (2002) on the drums as part of the band. Thank you Peter and Stephen.
I was recently invited by Mr Andrew Watson, Principal (1983-1989) to his new house in Kenthurst.  Mr Watson’s house, like Dr Alan Fahey’s (1970) house, was reduced to ashes during the fires in 2002.  The school reproduced appropriate memorabilia for Mr Watson relating to the Years 1983-1989 and for Alan we “found” an old School Captain’s badge and pocket.
Keep supporting the Union and the school will continue to support you.
