Sydney Boys' High School - Speech Day 2005
'Thank you for inviting me back to Sydney High as Guest of Honour at the 121st Speech Day to give the Occasional Address. It really is a great honour and my wife Hellene (a Sydney Girls' old girl) and I are touched.
'As you sit there looking at this bald, boring old guy, more than half of all the nerves of sensation that enter your brains are in the nerves of your eyes ~ 3 million fibres in the optic nerves and much of our brain power is tied up with processing this information - we are visual animals – living in a world almost wholly orientated by sight. We seek our food, sex, shelter and even inspiration through information provided by retinal images. Much of our language is tied up with visual imagery…I can't see myself doing that….I'm going to make a spectacle of myself ….see here, with a view to, I wouldn't be seen dead in that.., For the teckies, vision is our highest bandwidth sense.
'Eye doctors have the great responsibility and privilege to care for vision and treat eye disease – from simple things like prescribing glasses, to carrying out eye operations, sophisticated laser surgery and doing research – such as trying to develop bionic eyes. We also teach our successors and our students. When we fail, blindness can result – rarely patients die, if we miss something, such as the warning signs of a stroke that can first appear in the eye.
'So how did I get to do all this stuff?
'There is a short answer – as a medical student you get to explore the human body and having looked at the other end, moved to the end furthest away.
'When I walked through the gates of this School for the first time in 1970 I would I never have predicted that I would be standing here today. We had moved to Sydney from Scone for two reasons – my father was seriously ill and my parents wanted their children to attend University – in those days difficult to achieve from small schools in the bush. These issues of Health and Education remain big issues for regional Australia. Worse still, I wanted to be a Doctor – so moving to Sydney for the final 2 years of high school and aiming for a big HSC score was as big as many of the challenges I have since had to face and certainly it was excellent preparation for what lay ahead.
'In truth I had a pretty ordinary career here – I do not appear on any of the Honour rolls up there on the walls – after having topped every subject in the School Certificate, I did not even come close here. I wasn't much of a sportsman, didn't debate – really wasn't much use at all. But I was determined.
'Let me tell you, growing up with a name like mine in a country town in the 1950s was no picnic. Multiculturalism is a relatively recent invention- even fashionable – back then there was a certain xenophobia – the funniest thing that happened in Scone was that a classmate threatened to attack me with grease proof paper – he was rather put out that I couldn't stop laughing. The best form of revenge was to excel academically. My parents valued and rewarded academic success – they did not have much of a formal education – my father's family had arrived here from the Island of Kythera in Greece in the 1890s - he had one year in school where he learned basic English and how to swear in Australian then to work in the Niagara Café where hot food could be had 24 hours per day. He told me that "knowledge was power", that a lot of big deals were done on golf courses, that no-one owed you a living and honesty was the best policy – bad things happened to bad people. I have gone through life trying to know more than anyone else and I wasn't a bad golfer. He also had learned that central to the Australian ethos was the concept of "the fair go".
'Why medicine? Well the most impressive person in Scone was Dr Walter Pye – he saved lives, delivered children, had a new white Jaguar and the biggest house in town. My father had been in the ambulance corps in Darwin during World War II – he saw some major surgery – was unimpressed and did not like doctors – so unlike most ethnic dads tried to talk me out of medicine – actually he got me a job in the local abattoirs to turn me off – instead of which I became an expert in cow, sheep and pig anatomy.
'Why ophthalmology – well after the war my parents purchased the local cinema, a beautiful art deco palace. Some of the projectionists would show up drunk on Saturday nights – so in my early teens I entered the world of cinemascope lenses, carbon arcs and multitasking – running 2 x 35 mm projectors and doing homework between reels. I have since had a fascination with light and lenses and optics and where better to study this than in the human eye.
'Sydney High in the early 70s was a great experience. Talk about multicultural – my small group of friends on the Flat included guys with Russian, Jewish, Chinese, Hungarian, Yugoslavian and Scottish heritage – there were Greeks everywhere – there was an honorary Aussie. These were guys whose families brought the best of their cultures to Australia and left past problems behind – somehow we all got on and had fun learning about our various heritages.
'I made good lifelong friends. I remember one morning at the bus stop in Kensington where we lived – one of the local stable hands called my new friend a wog – my friend calmly walked up to this chap, lifted up this fellow's trouser leg, closely inspected his ankle suddenly said "Yep, chain marks, you bloody convict" and then flattened him. This was a new experience for me.
'We had some truly inspirational teachers here and I am very much the product of my teachers. From my days in Scone, taught by locals who went off to war, retrained and went home to teach the local kids, to here, to Sydney University Medical School, to Germany then back here – I have been extraordinarily lucky to have extraordinary teachers. Perhaps the most famous was Fred Hollows - more later.
'The English master here gave us what he called growth novels – Golding's Spire, Kafka's Trial; in French we got all the grammar and a dose of existentialism. A wonderful maths teacher who got over 30 Boys, including rowers, through level one Maths – at the time I had a relative who wrote the Maths text books – I had little choice as to which class I was in. In my years here, despite a maths/science intent, I learned to care about literature and the arts.
'In 1971 we won the football – there was an assembly, which symbolically I missed and almost got caned for. While I enjoyed sport, I believe too much emphasis is placed on it in our society. Intellectual pursuits are not well recognized, yet it is only by intellect and innovation that we will survive and prosper.
'At the time I had another apparent handicap – I was something of a lateral thinker – before it was fashionable. I was unable to go from point a to b via the most direct route – this is a real problem, particularly if you are being taught by surgeons. I seem to meander through various fields, taking what seems forever, but borrowing ideas from one area that can be applied elsewhere. A second tactic that I accidentally learned when facing research problems is that you look at say a disease or problem you do not understand – you learn everything about it – all the conventional wisdom – this must be by definition wrong – you then chuck it out and start again – I later found that this as the approach of a very famous Australian, Rodney Brooks who is head of Robotics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology – he builds those funny looking but very effective vehicles that you see on Mars. This approach can get you into lots of hot water, especially when you challenge accepted wisdom. I got to be a Professor on the basis of a single observation – one morning in 1982 I was putting on my tie – I noticed a spot of focused light in the cornea of my eye – it turned out that the optics of the eye work side on as well as front on – so side light can damage the eye – which is why sunglasses that wrap around have become popular. Well it turned out that this light focusing could cause forms of cataract and a fleshy red growth called a pterygium. When I tried to publish this - I got polite and sometimes impolite rejections – basically a little guy from Australia was being told we don't believe you. Fred Hollows encouraged me to stick to my guns – it was eventually published and now is in some textbooks.
'After the 4th year of medical school I interrupted formal studies to do a year of research with a Professor John Young - who became Dean of Medicine at Sydney University - he taught me most about what I know about how to do research – he was a tough boss – it was all about excellence – in Medicine it has to be – you are dealing with peoples lives – yet we know relatively little about basic biology. In the current political climate doctors are seen as elitist and attacked – and whether or not I am permitted to talk about politics tonight, I think that in the last Federal election Australia voted against the class hatred evident in these attitudes.
'John Young was erudite, cultured and trained in Germany and most of my early research was conducted there – a tremendous experience – working in world class laboratories, travelling, trying to learn another language. Eventually I ended back in Sydney working for Fred Hollows – in stark contrast to Young. I travelled through central Australia, spent 10 years driving to and from Bourke - when he was ill I stayed in Randwick and ran his Department, learning how to deal with the bureaucracy.
'We are incredibly lucky to be living here in a relatively wealthy democracy, in the country of the fair go, where we still have a somewhat wry sense of humour. We have had to be smart to survive, both from first settlement days and earlier but we have been hopeless at the business of selling innovation, which is why our American cousins lead much of what we now do. So I am sure that with these fabulous ingredients, your teachers will take these very bright young minds and challenge them to make a difference. Yes we need to know all the conventional stuff – this gets you through exams but to make a difference you need to do more.
'So guys, travel, read, question everything – finish what you start. Watch out for the anti-elitists – and the dumbing down of everything they touch. Work hard, be kind to your parents – my nephew once said to my mother, "You know, gran, we have a common enemy, my parents."
'When you go to the United States, and you must go – to see the best and worst that our civilization has to offer, drop in to the Getty Museum, one of the world's great cultural establishments. It was built by John Paul Getty a driven oil man – as you leave the building just inside the entrance, there is a marble bust of an elegant man in a fine jacket, looking you in the eye – the inscription gives the history of the museum which is dedicated to delighting and educating its visitors. He is challenging you to do better with your life and as an academic and a perpetual student, I have come to understand that education and delight go hand in hand.
'To the prize winners today, congratulations for your hard work and to your families for your achievements – most of you won't get prizes tonight but there are plenty more out there and there is hope for you yet.
'Thank you for listening and for this opportunity to come back to a place that I can never forget
and to which I always will be grateful.'
A message from the Anti Racist Officer
Welcome back to school to all students and a warm welcome to the new Year 7 students and their parents. This is just a reminder to all members of the Sydney High family that racism has no place at Sydney Boys High School. In recent years I have had very few complaints about racist behaviour in the school and I will endeavour to make sure that this continues in the future.
If any member of the school family believes they have been discriminated against on the basis of their race or have been racially abused, they should immediately contact Steve Codey in the Social Science Staffroom.
All correspondence is treated confidentially and immediate action will be taken to overcome the
problem or concern
SOCK IT TO YOU
Thank you to all who have returned orders.
GREAT WORK !!
Please continue to ask friends, family and neighbours to support our school.
Orders to be placed by 21 March
A big thank you to everyone who contributed to the BBQ at Woollahra Sailing Club on Saturday morning. Parents did a magnificent job feeding hungry sailors between races.
A special thanks to Simon Cradock (Captain of Sailing) who wields a mean set of tongs and Jack
Gough "bar tender" extraordinaire. Also old boy Oliver Pickles whose hard work and enthusiasm
kept everyone going on the day.
Woollahra Sailing Club has offered Sydney Boys High the opportunity to sail FREE during Autumn and Winter months. You would be required to attend every second Sunday between 11am and 2pm.
Perhaps you have thought about Sailing as a sport and weren't sure if it was for you.
This is an opportunity to try Sailing at no cost to you or your families and without interfering with any other winter sport commitments.
Go On! See if you would enjoy this sport …
Please let Mrs Boukatos know if you are interested so she can organise a spot for you and your friends.
What a great day it was for everybody on Saturday during the final races of the Inter-Schools Tri Series Regatta! The threatening weather added to the atmosphere. Sydney High sailors, who have put in a fabulous effort over three Saturdays of intense competition, excelled themselves.
This was reflected in the great results all around. Jack Gough was able to win on the day and in doing so, finished first in the Full Rig Lasers for the whole competition. Simon Cradock also finished strongly – overall third in the Radial Class Laser.
The Pacer sailors also worked hard. They finished their races knowing that they had contributed to High's overall point score. Special mention must go to the Year 7s who, with little sailing experience, managed to crew like professionals.
Thank you to Old Boy Oliver Pickles, Ms Kurts, Ms Massellos, Ms Gough, Mr Blaxell and Ms Savit on
the BBQ for all the schools involved.

For Parents - boys and reading
On Neil Whitfield's "Communities" website there is a good powerpoint display on the issue by Rosemary Horton the Librarian at Trinity. It is well worth a read.
On this very issue - our boys reading program - Year 8 Parents – message to Dad's in particular I would love some parent volunteers to email me regarding reading and reviewing one book for a year 8 Literacy Circle. (The entire voluntary reading and discussion with 4 students can be done by email – You would not have to leave home.)
I have purchased 16 novels for students which need to be pre-read by adults. The books could be picked up by your children at the Library.
Please contact me on
if you will read a book for us.

As we move into our last day of competition this Saturday the 1st and 2nd XIs can improve their season's record by putting in their best effort with the ball as both take the field chasing early wickets. All going well and the weather and the pitches in good shape, we are in with a big chance in both games. Good luck to these teams and all the High teams as we strive to finish on a good note.

COMMITTEE and GENERAL MEETING
Linguistic Logistics: News from Languages…
The Year 9 French class agreed to contribute two dollars per person to experience the taste of a popular French food – pancakes! Monsieur Albert transformed himself into a chef, and a little teacher's desk was used as a kitchen. Flour and milk and other ingredients were mixed in a measuring kettle, then the white liquid was poured onto some sort of electric fryer. Jam, Nutella and cream were also provided.
The class was impatient and we didn't have to wait long. Each serving was ready in 2 minutes. A normally quiet classroom was suddenly full of chatter and laughter. Everyone enjoyed themselves as they ate, the limitation of space didn't seem to matter. The atmosphere was great!
It must be a great recipe, the pancakes that we make at home are somehow different; my friends really enjoyed the pancakes.
The room was in chaos towards the end of the period. Tables were rearranged and bits of paper plates were littered on the floor. However, we managed to tidy up the room, converting the restaurant back to a dull and lifeless classroom.
Thanks to Mr Albert and the LOTE staff who organised this. The pancakes were absolutely
On Monday, 7th March, 7M made pancakes to celebrate Shrove Tuesday (Mardi Gras, in French). I enjoyed it just as many of the other people in the class did.
Shrove Tuesday, in the Christian calendar, is the day before Ash Wednesday, which marks the beginning of Lent, traditionally a period of fasting. When Lent was observed more rigorously than it is now, the two or three days prior to Ash Wednesday, known as Shrovetide, were celebrated by games, sports, feasting, dancing, and general merrymaking. "Shrove" comes from the Roman Catholic practice of confessing one's sins and being absolved of them, or "shriven". This takes place on Ash Wednesday.
In Switzerland, Shrove Tuesday is called Fasnacht (Eve of the Fast); in Germany, Italy and other southern European countries, it is called Carnivale ("Farewell to Meat”, from two Latin words, caro (meat, flesh) and vale (farewell); and in Brazil, France and the United States, Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday).
Shrovetide feasts were designed to use up the food that could not be eaten during the Lenten
Fast. In Britain, Collop Monday was when people ate up their supplies of bacon, eggs and meat and
on Shrove Tuesday (now more generally known as Pancake Day) flour, eggs, milk and butter were
used up in the making of pancakes. According to tradition, revelry began with the ringing of the
Pancake or Shriving Bell soon after midday, which was the signal for the villagers to cease work
and go home to make pancakes or join in the games and merrymaking. Pancake Day races are still
held in parts of Britain today, as are football matches, played since at least the 16th Century
when they were rather boisterous games with few or no rules. Other energetic sports were also
indulged in, such as hurling and wrestling!
It was a different starting line-up that took the court at the tip-off, with Francis Wong filing in at the point guard spot, replacing Dustin Palana, who had not fully recovered from an ankle injury; he would later take some part in the game. Also a surprise starter was Josh Kraindler. With Josh starting, the infamous "Shni Time" was set for some record breaking game time and a rain of threes to come.
In the first quarter High played absolutely outstanding defence; putting pressure on the point guard, denying the pass to the wings. The catalyst for this defence was Cameron Conway. The captain led from the front on the defensive and offensive end (top scorer with 27 points). Even though he easily gave away 20 kilograms on his opposition number Frauny, Cameron used every inch of his height and every bit of weight in his body to out muscle the big man; not allowing him to comfortably receive the ball for an easy post-up and inevitable two points. Also Francis Wong played his heart out, running the point spot to perfection and slowing down the ball, enabling High to remain always a basket behind Iggies. At the quarter time break, Iggies led by 5 points thanks to their accurate shooter who calmly hit crucial and timely 3- pointers when it was difficult for them to score.
Entering the second quarter, High were keen to keep composed and focused to keep chipping away at the Iggies lead. Iggies put on their half court press, forcing some turnovers from High leading to some lay-ups. This gave Iggies some much needed breathing space with a ten point lead. With the injection of Dustin Palana onto the court, composure was restored to the team, as "Steph Hoe" – our half-court press breaker was run to perfection. This allowed Cameron Conway to come into his own, scoring lay-ups at will. The extreme defensive presence of the High boys was still very much on the court. Cameron continued to deny the post extremely well, forcing Frauny to only scoring 3 points in the half. However Iggies' accurate shooter made sure that things did not get out of hand for them, hitting some huge threes during the quarter, which enabled St Ignatius to maintain an 8 point lead going into half-time.
With the third quarter underway, High were determined and confident that we could pull the margin back to five points by the end of the third quarter. As said previously, THE THIRD QUARTER IS WHERE WE MAKE OUR RUNS!! First Grade continued to pile the pressure on their more favoured opposition, applying extreme pressure on the defensive end, which paid off on the offensive end. Francis Wong (14 points) continued to play extremely well, supporting Cameron Conway. Francis was everywhere throughout the game, scoring threes, bank-shots, and even scored a right handed lay-up! However Iggies were good enough to handle the pressure given to them by the High Firsts and the raucous crowd that had come to watch the game, and were able to slightly build on their half-time advantage, pushing the lead out to 14 points by the end of the third quarter.
High entered the last quarter, brimming with confidence. With the crowd constantly cheering us on, urging us to lift, High played strong for the first few minutes of the quarter. High put on their Full-court-press trying to get some quick transition baskets to cut the deficit dramatically. However Iggies answered back, with their own press-break resulting in lay-ups. High allowed their point guard to dribble through the middle of the press, allowing him to flash to the basket or dish to team mates for easy scores. From here on, it was difficult to stop this offensive juggernaut, as First Grade seemed to have run out of steam. In the end the score line blew-out a fraction, which did not reflect the hard fought win on the part of Iggies.
Plenty of positives were taken out of the game. Francis Wong filling in for the injured Dustin Palana had a killer game at the point spot, running plays and being the general on the court for the whole game. Also captain Cameron Conway led from start to finish with a tremendous defensive effort against Frauny, whilst also scoring 27 points of his own.
Looking forward to the game against Grammar, First Grade have been preparing and training hard
for this contest. Last term, High beat Grammar in a tight match which could have gone either way.
We need all the support we can muster to push us over the line in our last GPS game for the
season. The game is at the High gym at 11:15, so be there, and support the most exciting sport in
HIGH 1STS VS GRAMMAR THIS WEEKEND.
