From the Principal

High Talent
Khushaal Vyas (Year 8) was successful in the local round of the Legacy Junior Public Speaking competition and will progress to the Regional Final. Congratulations, Khushaal! Well done again to the 14As rugby team who had a confidence-boosting big win against Shore 14Bs on Saturday. A solid win by the Year 11 debating team sees them through to the Zone Final of the Karl Cramp. Good luck boys!

Wireless fibre installed
We have had to install optic fibre links from the server room to the main building to service the recently supplied wireless hubs from DET. We have invested $7k. to support the network. The first stage of our DET wireless network will be activated shortly. This is only stage one of the expansion of wireless capability. We expect most of the school to be wirelessed during phase 2.The down side is that our existing wireless hubs will not be accessible using the new laptops. We are working on establishing compatibility.

Students and parents should not expect that using laptops will change immediately the way teaching and learning occur at High. Syllabuses, programs, units of work and assessment strategies will gradually reflect the increased capabilities of students to research, retrieve, manipulate and present information. Newly created resources, strategies and approaches to concept and skill development have to be tested and piloted before widespread changes can be attempted. We ask for your patience and understanding as the staff and the students explore the possibilities of the technology available.

Solar Funding Agreement Signed
After a very long wait and several changes in the specifications for the photovoltaic cells, I received and rapidly signed the funding agreement for the Commonwealth Grant of $50,000. The P & C has already donated $10k. towards the project which will cost $72k. As soon as the paperwork is cleared I expect to receive the money and we can activate the installation contract. We expect to save >$1.4k per annum on electricity bills through solar power generation. More importantly, we will have an on-site educational facility to familiarise students with solar energy and its benefits.

Applications for enrolment in 2010
A team of 15 teachers is currently assessing the applications of over 390 students who have expressed a desire to come to High in Years 8-12. Once the applications have been assessed by three teachers and the scores collated, a meeting is called to review any discrepancies, before a final list of ranked applicants is sent for review to a community representative and the School Education Director. Interviews will start to be scheduled from the end of this week for the next couple of weeks.

From the Canteen Team

As some of you may have discovered, we have a new pide supplier. So we have chicken, beef, spinach pides again at the new price of $2.60.

We know how busy life can be for today’s parents, which is why we’d especially like to thank our loyal volunteers for their contribution to the smooth running of the canteen. Volunteer help is vital to ensure healthy food for our boys and an ongoing income stream to the P&C for allocation to worthy school projects. We’d like to say thank you by rewarding our volunteers with the chance to win a $10 Canteen voucher for their sons. All volunteers have to do is turn up for duty as usual and sign the duty roster book. A draw is held each month for the lucky voucher winner. .

Our June thank you voucher has been won by Michelle Dickson-Garay (Jasper, Year 9). Thank you Michelle for your reliable help and support at the canteen.

To all our other current wonderful volunteers...THANK YOU!

As the school year progresses, we often find work situations of our volunteers can change. It is a huge help to the Canteen staff if you can use the Roster to find someone to swap with and advise staff of the change if you cannot make it on your rostered day. Some volunteers however are forced to drop out entirely, due to pressures of work, so we are in constant need of new Volunteers.

If you have never tried Canteen duty before, it is never too late to put up your hand. Just ring the Canteen and offer your services! The direct number for Canteen is 9360 4027. Speak with Karen or Tracey.

Remember…all Canteen profits are returned to the school for the benefit of our boys’ education and development. Thank you
The Canteen Team

Public Speaking

On Thursday 6 August Christopher Chiam and Khusshal Vyas participated in the Local Final of the Legacy Junior Public Speaking Award at Sydney Girls High School. In a Local Final which more closely resembled a Regional, Christopher and Khusshal delivered insightful and entertaining speeches. We congratulate them on this impressive effort. Good luck to Khusshal who won a place in the Regional Final which will take place in the coming weeks. We wish him the best of luck in this prestigious and highly competitive competition.

Student report-Local Finals of Legacy Public Speaking
On August 6th I competed in the Legacy Public Speaking Award. This time, instead of traveling long distances to compete, I was able to walk to the final at Sydney Girls High School.

In the Legacy Public Speaking Competition, we were able to choose any topic and talk on it for five minutes. After that there was an impromptu section in which we had five minutes to prepare a two minute speech. There were competitors from Year 7 to Year 10!

This local final was of high quality. VERY HIGH QUALITY! Each speaker had very meaningful speeches which included humour as well. But the impromptu speeches were so impressive! Each competitor talked about issues really influencing our modern day society which kept each member of the audience listening.

The adjudicator took quite a while to choose the winner. Each person had a great chance of winning, it was so very tight! But after about ten minutes of waiting I was announced as one of the winners. Chris Chiam from Year 9 also delivered outstanding speeches!

I am now preparing for the regional final which will be held in the near future. Till then it’s practice, practice, practice!

SBHS Fencing

Schools League – Week 1 Saturday 8 August
SBHS First Grade: Addison Clune, Julian Burnes, Anirban Ghose [Caillin McKay] (4 - 5 Loss, 7 - 2 Win)

Our first match of the tournament against Newington B was closely contested. Addison Clune has improved dramatically winning all of his bouts, and perfecting his taunting tactics to annoy opponents. Julian Burnes was the most secure out of our team, winning his bouts with a few points to spare. The bouts that we lost were each very close, and could have gone either way. This was rectified in our next match against Barker A, who we beat 7 - 2. This is the first year that we will have three left-handers in one team.

SBHS Second Grade: Patrick Hsiao, Warren Dang, Chun Wong, Yixin Liu (2 - 7 Loss)
Our Second Grade team was surprisingly inexperienced, however this did not show in their match against Sydney Grammar C. The electric gear proved a challenge to master, but many positives can be taken from the 2 - 7 Loss. Patrick and Warren won the first and last bouts of the match respectively.

The Under 13s
SBHS RED: Ashley Chan [Captain] Kin Pan and Kritman Dhamoon (6 - 4 Win, 8 - 2 Win)
Saturday 8th of August, Sydney Boys Red won against Mosman A and Newington White. For the Mosman game, we won 6 bouts, and for the Newington match we won 8 bouts. Kritman Dhamoon was the best fencer in our team, having won all of his bouts. What a pro. As a team, we were great, encouraging each other, and helping each other out. Mosman A and Newington White were formidable opponents, but in the end we won.

SBHS Blue: Kenneth Yu, Hardy Zhu and Yiutao Wong (4 - 5 Loss)
The Blues provided the most exciting, epic battle I have seen from SBHS. In a match against Mosman Yiutao went in for the final bout with a score of 4 all. Yiutao [who was fencing in his first ever electric fencing comp] managed to keep the battle going over time. It didn’t really matter that Mosman finally scored the match point when spectators were given such an extraordinary display of feisty fencing. Congratulations especially to Yiutao who won many bouts and displayed a very cool determination under so much pressure. The Blues fenced against Sydney Grammar and Mosman and narrowly lost both matches 5/4.

SBHS Orange: Nicholas Costa, Michael Hauser, Michael Xin [Hawk Ji] (0 - 9 Loss, 3 - 7 Loss)
The Orange team began their fencing season slowly with a 9-0 loss against St Aloysius. In their second match against Sydney Grammar the team showed much improvement after experiencing the unfamiliar electric gear and competition rules. Man of the Match goes to Michael Hauser wan two of his three bouts. A big thank you to Nicholas whose flexibility and willingness to move into different teams meant no SBHS team had to forfeit.

SBHS Green: Riley Irwin, Christopher Chen, Oliver Long [Gideon Kwok] (3 - 6 Loss)
A very encouraging first match of the season against Hills Grammar with a 3/6 loss. Chris was the man of the match winning two of his three bouts. This team had no experienced electric fencers and performed very well in their inaugural match.

Match Reports from last week:

1st XV
High 1st XV played an exciting and tightly fought game on the impressive new Shore home ground. In the end we went down 19 - 12, yet showed great improvement from previous encounters, and were able to sustain a competitive attitude for the full game. The skill level was high, and tries were scored by Jonah Petrie and Michael Ambrose.

15Bs lost to Shore 32-7. The team had high confidence coming into this match with a win in the previous match. A poor start by us resulted in an easy try to the opponents. Good defence held their forwards from scoring tries but when the opposition spread the ball out we didn't have an answer for a while. When we had the ball we could not seize the opportunity. A late try by Eric Li proved to be a consolation - too little too late.

The 14As came up with a convincing 33 to 0 win over Shore 14Bs on Saturday, with a great team effort in both offence and defence. With continued improvement the 14As can be competitive at an A grade level.

Loss to Shore 29 – 0. The scoreboard did not tell how closely the teams were matched. However, some lax defence and lack of communication gave Shore some easy tries. The 14Bs need everyone to attend training to ensure that they are well prepared for each match.

Sydney High 13Ds played Shore away. The 13Ds started off well but dropped to a 40 point deficit at half time. Fortunately, the Ds showed vast improvement in the 2nd half making strong tackles and limiting the opposition to 28 points for the 2nd half. Everyone had a great game and enjoyed themselves.

  • Friday 1st, 2nd and 3rd May 2009 NSW Secondary Schools Teams Racing
  • Sailing Dinner
  • and a new home

A selected group of the Sydney Boys Sailing Squad competed at the NSW Secondary Schools Teams Racing over three days in May at Rose Bay.

The SBHS Sailors included: Yr 7 Feng, Daniel, Yr 8 Robinson, Connor, James, Marcus, Yr 9 Bart Daniels, Ceh, Adam, Ennes Mehmedbasic, Matthew Delaney Yr 12 Richards, Adam, Phillip Kurts

Participation of the boys at the 3 day Regatta was made possible by Adam South who gave SBHS a base on his small yacht for the day so it was possible for the boys to quickly change teams between races as well as giving teachers, coach, parents and fellow teams mates a close view of the racing. The Sailing Dinner this year was another great success – thank you to the committee for the organisation.

SBHS Sailing has found itself a new home this year at the Double Bay Sailing Club. We look forward to inviting parents and friends of SBHS Sailing to come along and see the new facilities and storage.

Match Reports
1st XI v Riverview Lost 1-3
The build up to this match involved trepidation mixed with patchy knowledge of the stern task ahead in St Ignatius. A top of the table clash at the home of High football (McKay 1) laid the foundation for a mouth watering clash between the who’s who of football in the GPS (Ignatius had 8 combined GPS representatives in addition to the convenor of the GPS Football program) and a solid High outfit that continues to perform well against any opposition. High dominated the early parts of the match with its slick two touch passing game and resolute defence across the paddock. Some neat layoffs from striker Sam Higgins and quick passing on the angle from Harrison Lane and Jarrod Chan caused all sorts of problems for the tall but slow Ignatius defenders. We were unfortunate, however, to concede an early goal where an inability to clear the ball saw the Ignatius striker pounce and convert an easy chance. Importantly, we were able to bounce back both physically and mentally – a testament to the positive mentality and willingness to never give in amongst the group – when Nick Dimitropoulus converted a penalty midway through the first half. We continued to play inspired football for the remainder of the half going into the break at 1-1. The second half proved an extraordinary challenge playing into the wind and with Ignatius pressing hard for another goal. We created a multitude of chances that if converted would have placed extraordinary pressure on Iggies. Josh Sutton – one of the most improved players of the season thus far – had a phenomenal game in goal, with close to 30 possessions and countless last ditch saves (not to mention a flawless performance with his goal kicks). While High continued to play simple, free flowing football, Iggies converted a sharp cross from a corner which put them ahead 2-1. High continued to fight for an equaliser - which would have been a fair result based on our execution of the game plan and the way we knocked the ball around - but again, an inability to convert chances cost the side on the scoresheet. Iggies put away a third goal in the dying minutes to win 3-1. A really impressive effort from High’s 1st grade squad with all people involved contributing to a solid team performance.

2nd XI v Riverview Lost 1-2
Facing a strong Riverview team, Sydney High 2nd XI started shakily, being found out by Riverview’s up tempo play and lateral ball movement. Pleasingly, High readjusted to counter Riverview’s tactics and dominated the later part of the first half and scored the first goal of the match and led 1 nil at half time. Facing a stiff breeze, High’s defence, led by captain Jacky Chen, were under constant pressure throughout the second stanza and held on bravely until Riverview jagged two late goals to snatch the game. Goal scorer for High was substitute Jeremy Rajendram.

16Cs v Riverview Drew 0-0
Coming off last week’s comfortable win against St. Joseph’s, High faced a highly skilled and sleek Riverview outfit. From the kickoff, we were entrenched in our own half with only a number of breaks toward goal. As neither side could seize the initiative and gain the momentum, defensive tactics were essential to keeping a clean sheet. At the half time break, both teams remained goalless and we went off knowing we had a tough task ahead of us. The second half started with a severe push down the right flank from St Ignatius and they capitalised on their territory by taking several shots at goal. Resisting the advance toward goal, our defence muscled its way back into the game. Special commendations must go to M Rozsa and V Sethi for providing an unyielding defence down the centre corridor. Also, A Mokdad played brilliantly on the left flank, presenting the few breaks down the wing. L Sheldon, the goalkeeper has retained another clean sheet, among a barrage of late shots from St Ignatius. Although, the nil-all score line does not reflect the streaks of talent in the match, it proves we hauled out a great defensive effort and clearly are a competitive force in the GPS.
Iftiar Khan, Captain of 16Cs

13Cs v Riverview Won 1-0
As the 13Cs walked onto the field the coach and the team had doubts about winning. The first half was tough as their attack was very strong. Riverview continually applied pressure, but a fast break and errors from the opposition saw Michael Yu score the first goal of the game. The second half was filled with tension as a determined Riverview team fought to equalise. They posed many threats with a lot of shots, but our solid HIGH defence line would not falter. When the full time whistle blew everyone cheered. The first victory for the 13Cs 1-0.
David Evans
