FROM THE PRINCIPAL
It has been a very busy week, particularly with our Open Night on Tuesday. This was a great night
where we hosted visitors, particularly students and parents from the Primary School. We had large
numbers of our current students assisting staff in running activities and displays for the visitors and they
all did a great job. Many thanks to them all.
Last week I had the great pleasure of attending the International Student
Awards, in company with our International Students Co-ordinator, Ms Ogilvy.
These students are an important group in our school and we always have
some wonderful achievers among them. This year Martina (Hyun) Gim was
our Academic Award nominee and Joy Yao was our nominee for the School
Service Award. Both girls performed very well and are great ambassadors
for our school. The photo shows Joy being congratulated by the Executive
Director of Schools, Ultimo, Mr Murat Dizdar.
On Thursday evening we hosted our annual Information Evening about the GATS program. If you
have friends or family interested in entry to this program, please let them know to obtain an application
th
form from the Front Office. They must be returned by 3:00pm Wednesday 11 March.
To celebrate International Women’s Day this week, a group of girls will be attending the Zonta
International Women’s Day Breakfast, accompanied by Ms Pandelios, our Girls Adviser.
Congratulations to our fantastic Zone Swimming Carnival competitors. Despite the poor weather for
our carnival last week, we were able to run the events and select the team for Zone. They competed on
nd
Wednesday, with outstanding results: 2 in the Zone, overall. Congratulations to everyone in the team!
As an addition to our School Welfare Program, in order
to support students, our school is introducing a new
Mentoring Program. This will assist some students in
Years 8 & 9 in setting and achieving goals and making
informed choices. The program is run in partnership with Raise Foundation. Raise Foundation is a
registered Australian Charity which provides mentoring programs for young people, using qualified and
vetted volunteers. They are supported by the NSW Government and they have worked with many
schools in Sydney previously. We welcome them to partnership with our school.
At our formal assemblies this week, it was great to be able to acknowledge the achievements of some
of our VET students in Yr11, as well as several students who achieved Gold Merit Awards. I would also
like to congratulate our amazing musical performers at the assemblies, Sophie Woolaston, Daniel Kim,
Karen Chang and Paul Lee. They displayed a lot of talent!
Thank you to the Year 7 parents who responded to the Year 7 Parent Survey last week. To make it a
little easier for more of you to respond, we have also produced it in a Survey Monkey format. Please
click on the link below and assist us by completing this survey. It will only take a few minutes.

ENVIRONMENT GROUP
Meeting is this week Monday Week A in Common 1. Please encourage your eco warrior to
come along.
PERSONAL LEARNING PLANS FOR ATSI STUDENTS
Our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander mentors are collecting information from staff to
complete personal learning plans for our ATSI students. Parents and families please expect a
call and invitation to attend a meeting to have your say in the plans.
UNIFORM AND LATE STUDENT DETENTIONS.
Students who are late or out of uniform are continuing lunch detentions. If your student is late to
school please provide a note or call the Side Office 9745 3777 ext 136. If your student is not
wearing correct uniform please provide a note. Please ensure that you continue to support full
school uniform and punctuality to class. Our image and reputation in the community is quickly
lost by such visible infringements.
Mrs Jody Engisch (Years 7, 9, 11)
Mr Craig Anderson (Years 8, 10, 12)
SCIENCE FACULTY
The Science department received a lot of positive feedback on their
displays from Open Night. Prospective parents and students loved
the hands on experience offered by the staff and in the animal
room. As such the Science department would like to say a few
thankyous.
Thank you to the P&C for support in financing the aquaponics
system and thermoregulation of the animal enclosures.
We would also like to formally thank Mr & Mrs McLauchlan for the
ongoing support that they and their daughter Emily Rose provide to
the Science department, particularly the Animal room. Such projects
require significant labour, time and financial investment without
which all students would miss out on the exciting and unique
opportunities offered by the hands on experience with the bearded
dragon, Stimsons python, multiple frog species, leaf tailed geckos
and the giant burrowing cockroaches who are now happy parents.
Anyone who is
yet to view the
animals up
close and
personal please
contact Mr
Sloane.
IMMUNISATION PROGRAM 2015
NSW Health will be offering YEAR 7 students’ free vaccines three times this year.
All students have been given information kits and permission forms. Those
students, who are still to return their immunisation cards, please do so by
Wednesday March 11, to Ms Iconomou.
The schedule for the visits is as follows:
Visit 1:
Visit 2:
Visit 3:
13/3/15
12/6/15
30/10/15
Year 7: HPV, dTpa
Year 7: HPV, Varicella
Year 7: HPV
It is important that students have breakfast on vaccination day.
If you have ANY questions about the vaccinations themselves, or your child’s vaccination history,
please contact The Australian Childhood Immunisation Register on 1800 653 809, as the school is
unable to provide this information. Information on the School Vaccination Program is available in
languages other than English at:
http://www.health.nsw.gov.au/PublicHealth/Immunisation/school_prog/languages_forms.asp
Any other questions regarding the program, please phone Mrs Milligan HT Welfare
Up until this point in Peer Support, students have been encouraged to respond with open
thoughts to challenges and be optimistic about pursuing positive outcomes. This kind of thinking
allows them to believe that new skills and strategies are beneficial and can make a difference to
the outcome.
Over the next few weeks students will discuss and practise a range of skills and strategies they
can adopt when inevitable setbacks occur.
This week we discuss reflection as a way of taking responsibility for our actions and considering
how we might alter them in the future.
We redefine failure as the absence of effort, recognising that results simply inform us of the next
steps to take.
Students are reminded that perseverance is not a case of doing the same thing over and over.
Persevering in any situation requires much effort, constant reflection and sometimes a number
of strategies.
Congratulations to the students listed below, who have been awarded a Merit this week. Well done!

On Wednesday the 4th March, Miss Brown, Mr Bilbjia and Mr Slocum took 31 talented Concord
swimmers to the Zone Swimming Carnival. Our competition for the day included Burwood Girls
High School, Fort Street High School, Hunters Hill High School, Marsden High School and Ryde
Secondary College. Overall Concord came second with 528 points, 35 points shy of Ryde
Secondary College on 563 points.
Everyone performed at a high standard in the pool and the team bonded together cheering on
their teammates in the water. There were some outstanding results, including seven records
broken, five of which were broken by super fish Ben Comer!
Ben smashed the 12 years Boy 200m freestyle, 100m 50m backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly
and freestyle. Ben was also named age champion.
Chris Son was named the 14 years boys aged champion, winning the 200m freestyle, 2nd in
200m individual medley, 100m freestyle and 50m butterfly.
Thomas James won 5 individual events including 200m, 100m and 50m freestyle as well as
the 50m butterfly and backstroke. Thomas was the overall boys 15 years age champion.
Thomas also joined Cooper Steen, Marco Gallo and Mustafa Orcun in the 4x50m 17+ Boys
Freestyle Relay. Not only did they win but they a smashed that has stood for 9 year record by
4seconds. This was a special day for the boys as it will be the last zone carnival they swim as a
team together, as Cooper and Marco are currently in year 12. Last year the boys came second
at National.
Other outstanding individual swimmers, who will be representing the zone at Regional on the 17th
March include: Kisha Chabo, Hobin Seo, Lachlan Georgiadis, Jake Contemplacion, Mustafa Orcun and

On Tuesday, the Open Boys Knockout Basketball team travelled to Balgowlah Boys High
School for their first round match of the competition. The game was very close with no more
than five points separating the teams throughout most of the game. Unfortunately, the boys did
not come away with the win, however it was very pleasing to see the never give up attitude the
boys displayed. Great effort boys!
Last week, I reported that Amy Falson, Kyla Gray, Francesca Bull, Jared McKenna, Ely
Corliss and Lachlan Georgiadis were competing in the NSW All Schools Triathlon
Championships. The boys finished in the top 30. Well done to all participants.
Everyone found the experience challenged but rewarding at the same time. Thanks to Mrs
Falson for the fantastic team shots!
