Attention: open in a new window. E-mail

From the Principal

High Talent
Darren Chien set a new GPS record in the 200m 17 years breaststroke at the GPS meet last Friday, posting a time of 2:30:14. Congratulations on a great swim, Darren! Our 14s and 15s put in another dominant performance with 5 wins. Great job, boys! A terrific result came in from the NSW All Schools Triathlon where Luke and Jayden Schofield, and Jason Qiu (Year 9) won a silver medal in the Government Schools Division and were 7th overall.

Caught Behaving Politely
It is gratifying to be able to pass on the unsolicited positive feedback from two people observing our students

To the boys serving drinks at the High Junior Regatta, your dress and demeanour impressed a Riverview parent.

Friday 22.2.13: “I wish to bring to your attention how impressed I was at the behaviour of two young boys on the Eastern Suburbs train at around 3.30pm this afternoon. The two boys noticed an elderly man standing near the exit door to the train. They got up from their seat, walked up to the exit door and offered the man their seat downstairs. It is not every day you see two young boys show that level of consideration and thoughtfulness.

"You should be very proud of the principles you have instilled into your students.

Financial Management Meeting
There will be a meeting for all co-curricular activities in the Great Hall on Monday, March 18 at 6 pm. The meeting is for MICs and a representative from each Support Group (Incorporated Association or P & C Sub-Committee). The agenda for the evening will be:

  1. Budgeting for the season: sources of income / expenditure dissections
  2. Maintaining monthly records: parking / co-payments / salaries / venue hire / equipment
  3. How parking works: allocations / payments
  4. Accounting for other income sources: ASF / concessions (bbqs – kiosks – hiring of facilities) /fundraising
  5. What the sports levy funds. MICs / facilities development / buses /OH&S /GPS levies
  6. Setting co-payments for the year / season / term

I urge all co-curricular activities to be represented at the evening but particularly activities with budget expenditures exceeding $10k per annum from all sources.

Summer Sport Co-payments
The rolls for summer sports and activities have now been finalised. In many activities co-payments are levied for the season, so boys continuing in a summer sport will have paid their co-payments already. However, for Year 7 one term of summer sport will be levied. Also, a few activities have term-by-term co-payments. These are due now. For 2013 the agreed figure for co-payments is $110. Certain Supporters Groups, with agreement from parents, decide upon higher co-payments for some expensive to run sports, such as rowing, sailing and rifle shooting.

Six Day Week Rule
High is a 6-day a week school but MICs and event organisers have of late been scheduling training or competition on the occasional Sunday. Our boys need a full day off each week. Any activity that is planned on Sunday needs to be approved by the Principal. Approval will be withheld if any of the boys affected have Saturday commitments as well. Sporting excursions away are exceptions to the rule but participants would normally be travelling, rather than competing or training on Sunday.

The Debating Season gets well underway this week with a Home Debate for Eastside against Rose Bay and an away debate at Knox for FED. People who have signed up for Debating emails will have teams and further details on this.

Invoices for Debating will be being sent out over the next week so I wanted to take this opportunity to give you an overall perspective on those costs.

Year 7 $100, Year 8 $100, Year 9 $100, Year 10 $110, Year 11 $120, Year 12 $120

Over the last two years we have added significantly to the team of coaches and so student to coach ratios, in all Years, are now smaller than ever before. Couple this with the size of the program (over 250 boys) then I think you will agree Debating represents outstanding value for money at High.

SBHS provides an outstanding program of sport and other co-curricular activities such as music and debating. As a GPS School, High offers our boys opportunities to participate in programs that are unmatched in any other public school in Australia and even in most private schools, where the fees are many times those at SBHS. Moreover, our programs are structured to fit with the academic focus of our students. As a result, High produces outstanding scholar-sportsmen equipped not only for academic success but with the broader skills and attributes to succeed in their careers and their lives. Debating, for example, is an activity which develops the skills of speaking publically, critical thinking and logical argument.  These skills are essential for success in most (if not all) future careers your son may aspire to.

We have an extremely successful record in debating at High, but in recent years we have noticed a range of our competitor schools have been able to pour resources into their programs.  Resources that, as a Public School, we simply do not have. If we are to remain one of the best debating schools in NSW it is essential that we get financial support from parents. 

The School makes a substantial contribution to the cost of providing its fifteen co-curricular programs but is unable to cover the full cost from the relatively low annual contributions it invoices to parents at the beginning of each year. To help provide adequate coaching and facilities, the School Council, supported by the P&C Association, has requested that the School also charge a co-payment per boy for each co-curricular activity.

For Debating, the School pays for 20 high quality coaches who have or are currently debating at Inter-University Level and the cost of the MIC – so that she can be released from timetable commitments to organise the program and for limited release time for other members of staff to escort students to debates. Other costs are membership fees for three private and one public competition, regular opportunities for boys to attend additional coaching or debating tournaments at University, social debates with other schools and additional competitions such as UNYA

Unlike most other co-curricular activities at High debating runs for three terms. In addition, unlike many competitor schools, we have a very inclusive program which means we endeavour to give as many students the opportunity to debate in competitions as we can. Even after GPS selections have been made we continue to provide high quality coaching and debating opportunities for those boys who have been unsuccessful in this selection process or didn’t want to try out for this competition.

We would be grateful if you would make your payment as soon as possible. If you have any queries about the need for the co-payment, please contact me on 93616910 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Whenever there is a Home Debate we request parental support to help prepare and provide the supper for the debaters and audiences. Thank you to Nina Ilena and Reeta Prasad who are the Supper Coordinators of the Debating Support Group for their excellent efforts with this. They are a key component of the Debating Program at High and need to be supported as much as possible. This is a notice from them.

When there is a Home Debate we will need 3 parents from Year 7 to Year 9 for the early shift and 3 parents from Year 10 to Year 12 for the late shift.

The EARLY shift starts from 6:30pm. We will need two parents to bring 1 bottle of 2L of cordial each, and one parent to bring in 2 litres of milk (1 litre light milk and 1 litre full cream milk).

We'll need the helpers in the late shift to take home and wash the tablecloth and used tea towels and then return them to the staff common room during the following week.

If you are able to help, please respond with your name, your son's name and roll class.

As usual all parents will be asked to bring a generous plate for supper. Some suggestions for your contributions are Fruit platters, Sandwiches, Breads and dips, Party Pies, etc. If you bring food in before helpers arrive, you may want to mark the food for "Debating supper" and for "Junior" or "Senior" group.

From Tennis

High vs Scots – Round 5

1st Grade
High headed out to Scots on Saturday, with the disappointment that there was a better chance of swimming rather than playing tennis. The boys were hopeful as we waited for a change in weather, however, the combination of rain and wind proved detrimental in our chances of gaining much needed points against Scots. As a result, we had to settle with a 6-6 draw. The boys will be looking towards better weather and the big matchup against long-time rivals Grammar this week.
Frank Zhang

2nd Grade
High went out on Saturday confident after a long, hard and intense week's worth of training against Scots. However, to our and Scot's disappointment, the rain and weather conditions were not playable. Both teams waiting for the sky to clear up, had small chances of clear weather, which slowly turned back to heavy rain after minutes of attempts to dry the courts. Due to these unfortunate events, High and Scots drew this week at 6-6. High will now be even more excited for next week's opponents, Grammar, just itching to play a good day's worth of tennis.

16s Tennis Report

SHS vs Shore
By Captain James
Chee, A1
The 16s tennis team played away for the fourth week of the AAGPS season. Playing at slightly later times (12pm and 2pm), the team did not approach this week any differently to the others. The C and D teams proved too good for their opposition with a strong performance in both their doubles and singles matches. Some of the wins included 6-0, 6-1 and 6-2. Unfortunately, this result was not reproduced in the A and B competition; although the matches were very close, with doubles going to tie-breakers and singles matches having only the one break of serve. Despite this there were some standout results such as 6-0 and 6-1 victories. As we look toward our next Saturday competition, we hope to improve on our plays and match performances.

GPS Swimming Report

Carnival 2 proved to be more competitive as all GPS participants were competing for points to gain GPS selection.

Overall, it was a rather successful carnival with HIGH participating in the majority of events.

This week we saw a matchup against Scots where Scots were just too HUGE for High 1st Grade. Three players bigger than Geoff Gerlach! However 1sts still remain 4th on the AAGPS table because of their strong offense throughout the season, which puts them ahead of St. Ignatius by 59 points For on the table. This Saturday still landed with a great win by High 2nd Grade against Scots once again, and thus able to maintain their dominance in the AAGPS 2nd Grade tables.

In in-school Basketball news, the House Basketball Competition for 2013 has already started up once again in the school, and is held in the gym during lunch times every Tuesday. Last week was Eedy against Mackay, where Eedy unfortunately lost by single digits to a team with 4 players while Eedy had a full 5-man team plus a sub. The Eedy team consisted of sharpshooter Charlie Shi from 2nd Grade, “Anto” the speed demon and Jack “Bawse” Hutchinson from 1st Grade. During the game, Charlie and Jack seemed to switch roles however; it was Jack who was seen the whole game taking the ball up the court and shooting 3-pointers (unfortunately I don’t think any of them went in). The other team members were Derek Sun from Year 11, Sama from Year 10 and me. The Mackay team consisted of Mathew Ng and Bovan Lin as well as two outstanding players; Geoff Gerlach and Bailey Musulin, with Geoff dominating the inside because of his massive height. He has also managed to humiliate me on a fast break near the end of the game where he managed to dunk on me, which wasn’t exactly a very good feeling. However it wasn’t only Geoff and Bailey: Year 10 giant Matthew Ng in McKay also managed to carry the team and perform very well both offensively and defensively (including blocking one of my shot attempts).

As you can see House Basketball is a lot of fun to watch, and if you’re lucky enough, to play. Make sure you turn up to future House Basketball comps during Tuesday lunch times to join in the fun! Last week we still had a decent turn out, as can be seen on the right, but there could be a lot more people to support their friends! This week will see High’s second last game of the AAGPS Summer season before the AAGPS Athletics Season will start. Remember to Play Hard, Play Smart and Play Together! Good luck to all teams!

Music Notes

The Intermediate Stage Band performed Sunday 24th of February at the Chatswood Club supporting Judy Bailey’s Jazz Connection Big Band. It was their first professional gig outside of the school and the band performed excellently. Thank you to the parents for supporting the concert and hopefully it will be the first of many more gigs to come! Well done boys! =D

Encore was held at the Opera House on the 25th of February. Twenty students were selected across NSW from over 6000 music candidates to perform at this prestigious event. This was a great evening with outstanding musical performances, giving our boys inspiration to excel in their performances.

The Senior String Ensemble will be performing at Government House for the Sir Roden and Lady Cutler Foundation Function on Wednesday 6th of March.

All ensembles are now up and running. There are still a NUMBER OF BOYS who have NOT turned up to ensembles. Remember that ensemble attendance go towards your AWARDS SYSTEM. Rolls are taken and you are only allowed to miss on 2 rehearsals per term!

Clean Up Australia Day

Sunday the 3rd of March is the official day for Clean Up Australia Day.  Last year, more than 591,400 volunteers helped to celebrate 22 years of Clean Up Australia by donning gloves and filling up Clean Up Australia Day rubbish bags. 16,000 tonnes of rubbish was collected at over 7,000 registered sites across Australia.  A common misconception is that this is an initiative you must do with the school. But in truth, you can Clean Up Australia in your local communities. All the information is in the Clean Up Australia Day website, http://www.cleanupaustraliaday.org.au.  If you participate, make sure you get a certificate from the organiser on the day.  You can then provide a copy of the certificate to Mr Phillipson for awards scheme points.

The Life of Pi

One of the highlights of my life recently was to once again experience The Life of Pi.  On this occasion it was fantastic to see the job the film director, Ang Lee, had done with this unusual Booker Prize Winner.  Yann Martel’s Life of Pi had been on our Literacy Circles program about 7 years ago and has been chased down by our intrepid readers every year.  I must purchase some shiny new copies of the book.  It would be a great reward for good readers to be sent off to see this magical movie.  Our library looks forward to purchasing the DVD when it is released.

The Fault is in our Stars

by John Green.
Mrs Crothers book recommendation
Many thanks to Mrs Gordon, Librarian of the Senior Library, for unearthing this fabulous young person’s read.  I have not met up with John Green before and I am now looking forward to purchasing and reading other works by this author.  The main characters of this story are cancer victims but the kids irrepressible dialogue is a delight and reminds us of how funny and unique and precious all teenagers are.  I would recommend this book to our students and their parents.

From the Canteen

Keen to try out the fabulous range of food in our canteen, but pressed for time?

Desperate for pasta or rice boxes, sweet chilli wraps or foccacia but keep missing out?

We have a wide range of hot food on offer and limited oven space. While we are adjusting to the new timetable this year, we try very hard to second guess what all you boys (and teachers) will want to eat on a given day, it is very hard to get it right without your input.

The answer is simple!

Order ahead and reserve what you want!

Simply call at the canteen first thing in the morning, place and pay for your lunch order and it will be ready and waiting for you at lunch time.

How easy is that!
