From the Principal

Welcome Back to Term 2
I hope all students and staff are rested and refreshed and ready for the hectic second term schedule of assessments, activities and reports. There have been quite a few staff changes since the end of last term. Congratulations to Rebecca Dam who has been appointed Head Teacher for Technological and Applied Studies. We welcome Kety Manolios from Randwick Boys High to the Science Department to replace Maureen Luithle. Mr Everett Coan takes over as Year 11 Adviser. Mr Paul Hagan is relieving for Sonya Gorney. Ms Debra Gilmore will be Acting Head Teacher Creative Arts. Ms Bonnie Branigan and Ms Sue Ann Plenkovich are relieving for Nic Morris and Helen Tuthill. Mr Paul Ganderton is relieving for Ms Celia Finnie who is on maternity leave. Antoinette Hirst is relieving for Estelle Harman who is on long service leave.

High Talent
Congratulations to our High sailors who competed at the CHS sailing regatta at Belmont over the holidays. Phillip Kurts (Yr 9) won the 4.7 Laser championship. Brian Lung (Yr 10) and Tadeusz Davenport (Yr 8) retained the Joint Coal Board Trophy for High with a win in the Pacers. Jed Coppa and Calum Martin (Yr 10) were runners up, with Nikita Slinko, Julius Macefield and David Toh third. Thank you to Ann and Simon Kurts who organised and supported the CHS campaign with such commitment. Congratulations to the class of 2005 Old Boys who were awarded University of Sydney Entry Scholarships: Peshala Kariawasam, Mischa Steen, Thomas Kaldor and Hung Neo. Congratulations to Sriram Srikumar who has been selected in the state debating team of four – a great recognition of his skills!

Anzac Day Participation
I was pleased to receive congratulatory telephone calls and emails about our boys’ demeanour and participation on Anzac Day this year. The marching band looked great in their blazers and marched and played well. Nine of our cadets were involved as members of the banner carrying party for the 2/1st Field Regiment RAA Association, led by CUOs Budd and Farrow-Palmer. Two others played in the band. Phillip Kurts, Lachlan Deacon and Michael Carr are members of the strong Performing Arts Unit Millenium Marching band which distinguished itself on the day. All the boys were a credit to the school. Thank you to the Music Staff who rehearsed the boys and gave up their holidays to manage their performance. Thank you also to Major Knowles and the cadet leadership who arranged for our cadets to be of service on the day.

Work on the Grounds
As part of an environmental program, a bore was drilled some years ago to provide water to our courtyard. At the end of last term we installed a 10 kilolitre rainwater tank to catch run off from McDonald Wing. Six quite mature trees have been planted mainly on the Cleveland Street fence line to replace trees removed during the tennis court redevelopment. Some dead or dying trees were removed during the holidays and their stumps will be ground out soon. A garden bed will be laid along the gymnasium side border of the tennis courts. More trees will be planted. Significant resources are being set aside in an attempt to enhance our external learning environment.

The Athletics and Cross Country Carnivals
I was most impressed with the level of participation in both carnivals at the end of first term. There were more boys competing than anyone I spoke to could remember seeing before at High. Congratulations to all competitors! Numerous heats were run in sprint events and competitor numbers for field events were very high. The two days were an inspirational example of the energy that a collective will to participate can create. Great all round performances were recorded for: Michael Phung, Kumadika Gunaratne, Gabriel Garayalde (U-12); Derek Trang, Andrew Ye, Shadman Ali, Chris Morrow (U-13); Joshua Tassell, Jeremy Ireland, Alasdair Brown (U-14); Lachlan Street, Matthew Ling, Edwin Montoya Zorrilla, Kent Nguyen (U-15), Ty Linegar, Louis Yang, Gehan Karunaratne (U-16), Dakishika Gunaratne, Roger Burrell, Dale Sun (17/Open).Congratulations to these high achievers and to all competitors for your commitment.

In the cross country event, the competitors faced a tough course at Mount Steele and changeable weather but the participation was tremendous. Placegetters were: Pasan Pannila, Michael Phung, Kumadika Gunaratne (12 years), Vlad Boulavine, Luke Vlatko, Ian Lu (13 years), Jeremy Ireland, Harrison Lane, Alasdair Brown (14 years), Edwin Montoya Zorrilla, Matthew Ling, Nelson Ridges (15 years), Ty Linegar, Mitch Kelly, Louis Yang (16 years), Roshan Karunaratne, Eugene Stadnik, Michael Masalehdani (17 years), James Barker, Sam Gribble, Attila Szabo (18 years).

Harmony Day

Please find following the contents of a letter received by SBHS from Alison Wood, the Acting College Director of Randwick TAFE regarding our participation in the Harmony Day Seminar and Workshop:

"I am writing to thank you for the participation of Sydney Boys High School in the Harmony Day 2006 Seminar and Workshop held at Randwick College on 22 March 2006.

"I felt that the morning was a great success, providing a forum for honest and positive discussion about multiculturalism. It was encouraging and refreshing to see such a focus on the positive aspects of living in a multicultural society when there has recently been so much negative attention. I have enclosed a summary of the workshop discussions/recommendations for your information.

"Please pass on my special thanks to Rouna Daley and your student representatives, Lachlan Street and Thomas Lindeback, for their attendance and contributions. We were impressed by the maturity and articulateness of the students.

"It was noted by many attendees that educational institutions have a responsibility for ensuring that the next generations of Australians live in a harmonious and united society that is proud of its cultural diversity. Thanks to your participation in this event, I feel that we are making a positive move towards achieving this."

New Library Status Update

Please find following the contents of a letter received by SBHS from Carmel Tebbutt, MP, Minister for Education and Training regarding our Library facilities:

"Following my visit to Sydney Boys High School, I raised the issue of the library facilities with the Department of Education and Training’s Asset Management Directorate.

"I understand that further discussions about the library areas have taken place between yourself, the School Education Director and the Asset Management Unit, Sydney Region (AMU).

"I am advised that the audit of areas within the school has been completed and that action to make the best use of the current facilities has been initiated. I am also advised that during Term 2, 2006, the Department will seek architectural advice on this matter from the Department of Commerce.

"In terms of capital works funding, the Department has established a regional prioritisation process for examining project proposals, which are also considered against competing demands across the State. The AMU will be pleased to provide further information on this process, should you require it.

"I would be pleased if you would inform staff and the school community of the actions taken by the Department to date on this issue."

From the School Captain

On Friday 7 April, Kevin Kim and I had the pleasure of going to Parliament and Government House as part of the DET secondary school student leadership program. We joined about 130 School Captains and Vice Captains to learn about state government and leadership. Members for Albury, Heffron, Sutherland and Canterbury spoke to us about their role in the lower house, political parties and local area. They shared the insistence that we should all write to our local MPs to tell them what to do (advice I have since followed). We had a tour of the lower and upper houses (the seats of the upper house were much more comfortable) and had our horizons broadened with a speech from an Afghan-Australian woman who has set up four orphanages for deposed children and has also organised brother and sister school programs with Sydney schools.

Socialising with other school leaders on the way, we walked down to Government House. After a tour of the extravagant rooms and grounds (amazing views) Governor Marie Bashir spoke to us about her job as Governor and the high expectations she has for my generation. Kevin and I really enjoyed the day; it reinforced my faith in Australian democracy and talking to the MPs was heartening – they were intelligent, genuine and community-minded. On a side note I was glad to see that the 130+ school leaders from around Sydney accurately showed the multicultural nature of our city. Thanks to Mr. Kesting for the day.

In the second last week of school a blood donation bus came to the school making six trips carrying boys to give blood at the Clarence Street centre. I heartily thank all those boys who took part. As you can see from their advertising, the Red Cross has a great need for blood this winter and your donation made a real difference. If you missed this time (or last) due to my lacklustre organisation, there will be another opportunity this term for you to help save ‘up to three lives’! I’ll be in touch.

The Onion Bag 2006

I’m sure by now most of you would know that football MIC, Nic Morris, has accepted a transfer to Bowral High, starting second term. On behalf of the High football family I would like to thank Nic for his dedication to High football during the past 5 years.

In his time as MIC he has overseen the development of the sport, to become the school’s highest participation sport, fielding 26 teams on Saturdays. He was instrumental in raising the code’s profile in the school and securing fixtures on the school’s premier venue, McKay 1. Nic has put in place a football development program at High, which consists of professional coaches assisting staff and old boys. On behalf of all players, coaches and staff, Thanks, Nic!

Our first trial for the year was our traditional clash with the strong football school, Trinity Grammar. First grade came up against a highly skilled and organised outfit, including at least one junior Australian rep. The final 2-6 score line does not reflect the effort the boys put in, with four of the goals scored in the last five minutes of each half. What we must take from the game is that quality opposition will always punish lapses of concentration.

2006 has seen the return of one of High football’s favourite sons, Nick Apofis, to the coaching ranks. Nick has supported Sydney High football as a player, coach and technical director. Both the First and Second grade players can look forward to learning plenty about how the game should be played from Nick. His experience and knowledge will be invaluable.

Second grade, coached by Nick, registered a respectable 1-1 draw. The game was the first opportunity for several Year 10 boys to display their ability against open grade players. All of them performed admirably, with the only sour note being a broken arm to Pat Locke.

Results from the other age groups suggest that we need to work hard to improve our game. Only one team registered a victory and several were on the wrong side of some very lopsided score lines.

Hopefully we can turn things around this weekend.

Quote of the Week
“I think we should have a very nice 1st grade team in a couple of years.”

School Athletics Carnival 2006

Over two glorious days late last term the School Athletics Carnival was held at nearby ES Marks field. The Carnival is intended to provide for all standards of athletes and boys are strongly encouraged to participate in at least three events on the day for the Student Award Scheme. The participation levels at this year’s carnival increased from the previous two years thanks in large part to the new event forms supplied by Mr Dowdell and the student award scheme.

The Carnival went very smoothly thanks to the efforts of staff, student volunteers and willing competitors. Particular thanks to the computer team of James Rudd, Toby Rosengarten, George Qin, Alexandro Lai, Ziggy Harrison-Tikisci, Anthony Ho, Nic Lochner, Varan Perababthan and Alex Shapilsky for donating their skills and expertise over the two days. Our Carnival is now one of the few large school Carnivals held at ES Marks and it continues to be a thrilling and exciting event.

Congratulations also to the Age Champions – Michael Phung (12 Years), Derk Trang (13 Years), Joshua Tassell (14 Years) Lachlan Street (15 Years), Ty Linegar (16 Years) and Dakshika Gunaratne (Open).

Special Awards from the Carnival include ….
The AM Eedy Cup for 100m Champion: Mark Carroll.
The McArthur Memorial Cup for 1500m: James Barker.
The Frank Albert Cup for Senior Athletics Champion: Dakshika Gunaratne.

Full results of the Carnival are published at: http://www.sydneyboyshigh.com/documents/ac2006/index.htm.

Eedy was the winning House this year

  1 Eedy 612 611 1223
  2 Ruby 583 583 1166
  3 Fairland 563 398 961
  4 Mckay 517 422 939
  5 Saxby 439 449 888
  6 Torrington 428 334 762

Over the coming term the athletics coaching staff will be targeting training of athletes in long jump, shot put, hurdles, relays and longer distance runners. These training sessions will be held at lunchtimes on the flat and after school on the Bat and Ball Fields. Over the next couple of weeks all aspiring GPS Athletes need to collect their athletics’ training program from the History Staffroom. The training at this stage should be about skill acquisition and should not interfere with winter sport activities. Anyone interested in joining the athletics team this year, come and see me in the History Staffroom. All welcome.

CHS Regatta 2006

The CHS Sailing Regatta is one of the biggest school sailing events of the year. The regatta is a sailing event open to all students of any Australian Secondary School. Nearly 200 boats compete every year. It is held on Lake Macquarie after Easter and runs for 5 days. Boats are divided into classes where there are sufficient boats of a particular type.

This year Sydney Boys High excelled! In the Pacer Class, Brian Lung and Tadeusz Davenport took out first place, with Jed Coppa and Calum Martin second and David Toh, Julius Macefield and Nikita Slinko (Nikita and Julius sailed on alternate days) in third. In the Laser 4.7 Class, Phil Kurts took first place.

While the wind was a bit fickle on most days we had good weather throughout the regatta. One of the highlights was meeting students from other schools. The sailors were excited, competitive and friendly.

A very special thank you must be extended to the Kurts Family for organising, feeding and looking after the team.
