High Notes, Vol 9 No 7, March 14 2008
From the Principal
Well done to Masnun Kayes (Year 11) Raiyan Khan (Year 10) Andrew Huynh, Raghib Saddique and Iznad Zaman (Year 9) and Zafar Mohamed Rizvi (Year 7). Dominic Mah (7E) has recently broken the GPS record for 50m breaststroke (carnival 3) and smashed the Sydney East Region 100m breaststroke record by a massive 8 seconds. Max Chien also won the Junior Boys 200m breaststroke at the GPS carnival. Congratulations, boys!
Our Community Service Projects: Year 12- Father Chris Riley’s ‘Youth Off The
On November 30 last year, ‘Youth Off The Streets’ honoured young people who had made progress as measured by – gaining School Certificates, obtaining employment, succeeding in sport, reuniting with family, living drug free or participating in special events. We were represented by Richard Yang (2007) Shreyas Iyer and Mihir Desai (Year 12, 2008). Father Riley is also working with East Timorese youth. At the function some universal ideas were explored. The ‘circle of courage’ idea refers to the encompassing directions surrounding self esteem development. Traditional native educational practices address the four basic components of self-esteem: belonging, generosity, mastery and independence. Native people envision themselves as a person standing in a circle surrounded by the four directions.
Next time you are asked to bring $2 to school to donate to a mufti day, reflect on just how much difference our collective generosity can make to the lives of young people in calamitous circumstances so different from our own.
Project Rugby Revival
High Academics – High Participation
Building Fund Advisory Group
The policy of the school was to prepare to accommodate the new Year 9 class. The policy is also to maximise savings to go towards financing the new Library / Performing Arts Space. The auditor is concerned that capital works payments should be made directly from the No 3 Sydney Boys High School Building Fund Account and not from our No1 cheque account – building refurbishment. Thus, the SBHSBF had to reimburse the $36,584 in capital works for 2007. Other items funded directly from SBHSBF were: network cabling, data projector installation and cabling, room 705 wall, carpet for room 611, an airlock for 204, demolition of 611 wall and rebuild corridor wall to complete 611. In total $94,205 of capital works were approved. I appreciate that such a level of expenditure takes away from our capacity to build momentum in our fundraising for our new library. Nevertheless, a balance between emergent needs and long term goals needs to be struck. Be assured your tax deductible capital donations are being used productively to benefit the maximum number of boys, now and into the future.
The BFAG recommended to me at the March meeting that a small volunteer Steering Group of people
experienced in architecture, project management and liaison with the Department of Commerce
should be asked to advise me on the next steps in our process towards making the library vision a
closer reality. If there are any parents out there with any of these qualifications or
experiences or who have contacts in these fields, I would love to hear from you.
Latin at High in 2008 is set to be a busy programme, as there are many activities planned for all classes.
Year 12 students have already participated in the first of the enrichment activities organised for this year: the Latin Summer School at the University of Sydney. This is as annual event that has been running successfully for a number of years, now. Students are able to participate in a variety of activities, from Latin song (carmina) to intellectually stimulating in-depth study of Latin authors like Cicero and Vergil.
The current Year 12 studied a number of authors. Dr Jaggar recently presented these students with their Certificates from the University. The recipients were as follows: Jacob Cao, Jack Chen, Jun Dai, Edwin Montoya-Zorilla, Thomas Wilson and Boris Zolotarev.
Congratulations to these boys, who devoted part of their summer holiday to the pursuit of Latin.
Year 8 classes, with Ms Matsos and Ms Cook, will soon be visiting the Italian Forum in Leichhardt, where they will be hearing a talk on the Roman Forum, and then enjoying the culinary legacy of the ancients in the form of Pizza and Gelato. Historians tell us that the pizza concept originated in either ancient Greece or Asia Minor, where herbs and a topping such as olives were placed onto pitta bread and then fired in the oven. Gelato, or the first ice-cream, comes to us from two sources: ancient Rome, with one of the Emperors who wanted a dessert that was refreshing, and ancient China! (An interesting cross-cultural connection.)
The Year 8 Latin Camp will be held in September at Elanora Heights Conference centre. Students will participate in a number of creative cultural activities, such as mock-battles!
Year 7 have recently been introduced to Roman ways, through the excellent Cambridge Latin Course, interesting on-line activities, and the first of a series of documentaries on Rome.
Cultural research assignments from this Year are of a high standard. Presentation of work is
interesting, with students getting into the spirit of this language by producing parchment
scrolls filled with details about life in ancient Pompeii.
‘WriteNow’ - a creative writing competition, sponsored by the Sydney Morning Herald, The Sydney Writers Festival and BigPond, for students in Years 7-9.
‘What Matters? 2008’ - a writing competition for students in Years 7-12. Presented by the Whitlam Institute this competition asks for a 400-600 word opinion piece on what matters to you and why.
‘Mark My Words’ – The Sydney Morning Herald Young Writer of the Year competition.
Please encourage your son to take advantage of one of the above writing opportunities. Entry forms and further information are available from the English Faculty.
Recommended reading – a regular feature!
In many ways, we are what we read. In your English lessons the English faculty seeks to give you texts that we think will contribute to who you are. The books and films we teach are calculated to make you think critically, to expose you to beautiful writing, to make you enjoy immersing yourself in someone else’s story, so you can better understand your own. But the classroom isn’t the only place you should be reading.
In each High Notes this year we plan to offer up a recommendation for your reading - and viewing - outside the classroom. Sometimes, from a member of the English faculty, sometimes from a student or a class, sometimes from members of other faculties and other staff from around the school. We hope you will read these recommendations with interest, and perhaps seek out some of the books and films people at High enjoy and admire.
This week it’s my turn…
Ms Trompetter’s reading suggestion…for the writers in us and all the readers

SBHS Foundation Years
The Curriculum and Examinations
Sydney High’s first course of instruction covered the Classics – Latin and Greek; Mathematics; Modern Languages – French and German; English language, literature and elocution; History; Physical Science; and Drawing (geometrical and perspective). Both Greek and German were optional.
The school’s teaching program was, to a certain extent, governed by the system of public external examinations then in place. The Sydney University Senate had established a system of public examinations, in 1866, in an attempt to raise the educational standards in the colony. The “Junior” and “Senior” University Examinations were, essentially, the ancestors of today’s HSC. The University’s Manual of Public Examinations guided the syllabuses of all secondary schools in NSW in the second half of the 19th century.
The first candidates from Sydney High to sit these external exams sat for the Junior Examination in 1884 and the school quickly established its position in the league tables of 19th century NSW.
Even in the 1880s, the Headmaster was having to defend the School against charges that it was nothing more than a “cram shop” for the University Examinations. In 1885, the Headmaster of All Saints' College, Bathurst, alluded in his annual report to the “competitive eagerness” displayed by the Sydney High Schools. Coates replied in a letter to the Sydney Morning Herald:
If by this term [he] means that we are eager to make a proper use of all the examinations conducted by the University, then we plead guilty. But if the head master of All Saints' College wishes your readers to draw from this term “competitive eagerness” the inference that we are confining our work in any subject to the requirements of the University examinations, or that we are rushing our pupils for those examinations in the largest possible numbers, then he is entirely wrong. We could have sent up this year to the public examinations, with every chance of fair success, twice as many candidates as we did actually send; and I may mention that, out of the highest form of 17 boys, only two were candidates at the recent examinations.
By 1889, Sydney High was second only to Sydney Grammar School in the Junior Examination. Of the 384 NSW candidates, Sydney High School achieved 31 passes to Sydney Grammar’s 38.
The first curriculum, with its strong classical bias, was considered to be ill-adapted to the needs of late 19th century society. By the late 1880s, forces within the Department of Public Instruction were looking at changing the high school program so that, after a conventional junior course, the boys would choose either a commercial or technical course in their senior years. This move was strongly opposed by the Headmaster, Joseph Coates, whose view was that the school’s task was to prepare its boys for their future life as citizens, not just for life in the office or workshop. The curriculum was broadened somewhat and practical subjects were introduced with the move to Ultimo in 1892, but Sydney High School managed to retain its important role as a link to the University for its pupils. All that remains of the Department’s full proposal is the inscription above the door of the new school building at Ultimo which, to this day, reads “Commercial High School”.
Recognition of academic achievement at Sydney Boys High was not as full as some of the pupils might have hoped. The school history records that at the first prize-giving, when announcing the order of merit, the Headmaster stated that “all through life the virtue lies in the struggle, not the prize”. The history goes on to state:
This was cold comfort to those who headed the lists. Instead of carrying home a pile of books, as was the case in other schools, they were rewarded with a foolscap sheet stating their position in class and in various subjects.
This policy of principled opposition to prize giving was adhered to more or less consistently throughout Coates’ headmastership, although it is recorded that, in 1886, he did set up honour boards to record the names of the Dux (then called the “Captain”) and the most successful candidates at the University Examinations. These boards are still on display in the Killip Wing.
One old boy, who enrolled in 1889, did recall one occasion when the Headmaster was made to give a prize against his will:
S D Chalmers, later a world authority on Optics (he did great scientific work in the war) had
been our "false alarm" in Mathematics, always below his brilliant best. Joey presumed on this,
and jocosely offered him "a writing desk worth five pounds," if he beat me in Maths at the
Matric. Chalmers ran straight and won the University Maths Scholarship from a good field. The
"old man" pleaded an obvious "never intended," but he compromised and paid up finally.
P&C General Meeting
P&C General Meeting to be held at 7.30pm on Wed 19th March, 2008 in the Great
We wish to thank Richard Ayre, our Head Teacher of Sport, for a very informative talk on GPS Sport and Sport Policy at Sydney Boys High at our last P&C General Meeting. We will be inviting guest speakers to talk about various topics of interest to the school community at our P&C meetings to be held on the 3rd Wed of every month during school term. Come along for a chat with other parents and participate in the decision making process of various P&C activities.
Michael Kay, MIC of Volleyball and head science teacher, is asking for volunteer parents to work
with him to organise 30 billeting families for the State Volleyball Carnival hosted by SBHS from
25th to 27th March. Any families that are happy to participate are encouraged to contact Michael
Kay by email
From the Canteen
First up….some background information: 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 will be held each month for the lucky voucher winner. Remember, if you find you can’t make your shift, just call a fellow parent on the roster and arrange a swap.
And the lucky winner this month is…..Toni Lindeback, with Tom (Year 12) and Nick
(Year 11). Congratulations and Bon Appetit!
The Performing Arts Unit (PAU) is auditioning for new recruitments this year for their various ensembles. Please download and fill in the form on their website www.pau.nsw.edu.au under Music and return to the PAU by the 10th of April. No late applications will be accepted for any reason.
This year’s Encore performance was held last Monday 10th of March in the Sydney Opera House and featured two of our HSC students; James Mackay and Muhamed Mehmedbasic. The boys performed outstandingly in this showcase concert and were also interviewed by the ABC news crew about their musical journey and experiences. Congratulations to all of our Encore nominated HSC music students for their hard work and efforts.
Yr 9-Yr12 Elective music students attended a performance by DAORUM last Tuesday afternoon featuring Carl Dewhurst (guitar), Phil Slater (trumpet), Simon Baker (drums), Matt McMahon (keyboards), Bae ll Tong (vocals) and Kim Dong Won (drums/vocals). The group, who performed only one show at the Sydney Opera House (a sellout concert), gave up their time to perform and entertain us with traditional Korean music with contemporary improvisation in the school’s Great Hall. The boys learned a lot about the traditional percussion instruments used in traditional Korean music and the unique vocal techniques used in their operatic singing.

A very encouraging Day 1 of Round 7 of the AAGPS Competition and Round 13 of the One Day Competitions with the three of our five senior teams having won and the remaining two are in winning positions. The 2nd XI establishing a first innings lead and the 15Bs becoming the Grade Premier 15 B team in the One Day Competition in that grade are highlights.. The “Fighting 4ths” (XI) and the “Composite 5ths” produced run blitzes together with some vastly improved performances by our Under 13s Year 7 Teams. Congratulations to all concerned.
The 1st XI hit a bump after last week’s great win over St Ignatius (Riverview) but all is not lost as they only trailed by 33 runs on the first innings and secured a second innings Newington wicket in the last over of the day to put them on the track to consider an outright victory.
As many of our senior XIs players have realized that next Saturday will be their last match as members of one of our flagship teams, it was obvious that some were experiencing the emotions attached to the realization that their school years were ending all too soon. Having said that, it is of course no excuse for performances as Adam Gilchrist displayed in his final emotional matches in playing the same way as he always has and as we expected. As a result of that I am inviting members of our junior and intermediate teams, supporters and coaches who play morning matches to bring a lunch on Saturday and head over to our home ground at McKay No 2 Field in Centennial Park . Then sit and watch the 1st XI work towards a victory in their last match and send them off from our cricket section with personal pride and a sense of achievement. After all is this not the reason to be a student at HIGH??

Head of the River
The season reaches its climax on Wednesday March 19 with the eight schools competing at the Head of the River. Our crews have been well prepared by their respective coaches and best times are anticipated.
For the first time it is on a Wednesday and this has enabled our school to send a larger than normal spectator contingent. All Years 7 and 8 are expected to attend along with other school spirited seniors and those who have attended in the past.
The boatshed dinner was held last Wednesday and there is a selection of reports below from the dinner. The Gold Cup is on Saturday and is best viewed from the grounds of Riverview College. This year the entire Gold Cup Regatta is seeded heats so that crews may taper for the Head of the River.
Riverview Gold Cup Regatta - held at Riverview School on Saturday 15th March. This is a very exciting day of racing for all crews. Please come and show your support for the boys in the lead up to the Head of the River.
Rowing Assembly - all senior parents are invited to the school rowing assembly in the Great Hall next Tuesday 18th March at 11.30am. This is a formal and special school occasion for the senior rowers. 1st and 2nd VIIIs, Year 12 rowers and their parents are invited to the afternoon tea following the assembly.
Sheds Head of the River Presentation and after party - the boys get back to the sheds approx 3.00pm after the Head of the River and there is an informal presentation, barbeque, drinks, smoothies and the traditional HOR cake to be cut. If you can't make it to Penrith ... try and get to the sheds for this late afternoon gathering.
Good luck to all the boys racing on Saturday and next Wednesday and thank you to teachers,
coaches and parent helpers for your time and commitment preparing and supporting the crews
throughout the season.
YEAR 10 VIIIs
We started off full of confidence, fielding 3 Year 10 VIIIs for the first time in several years. Most of the group started regular weights training in addition to the on-water training, as well as a land training session most Monday afternoons. For about the first 2 weeks, the crews were mixed while everyone learnt the new sweep oar technique.
Once the general technique had been picked up, the first round of selections took place. The 1st crew that was selected has remained the same all season except for the inclusion of Dominic Edgtton, who brings pure power to the boat in his first season of rowing. Led from the front by the controlled, technical rowing of George Denny-Smith, Dale Chen and Andrew Blomberg, the crew has worked hard as a unit to reach its expectations. This, backed up by the athleticism of James Whiting and Jack Musgrove, and the fitness and determination of Vlad Boulavine and Michael Ambrose, has produced what we believe is a fast, spirited crew that hasn’t yet reached its potential. This season we have experienced both sides of racing: the great feeling of leading a crew throughout the race like we did in Melbourne, and also the devastation of getting passed by another crew. Wise words from John Croll himself have inspired the crew and given us a real idea of how to structure our race. We have all learnt a lot about racing, and believe the best is yet to come at Head of the River in a week’s time.
The 2nd Year 10 VIII also started the season with high hopes, although their crew has taken a lot longer to settle down into a good regime due to many troubles. The crew was changing almost every session, and this problem was worsened by several people leaving the sport. 2nds also had equipment problems from a chronic broken seat and even a rigger which was snapped clean in half by Alan Low during a race. An unfortunate injury to the crew’s leader Nam Nguyen has also set the crew back a bit, but he is now almost recovered and ready to race. Ben Li, who is new to rowing, has been a great addition to the crew with his excellent power to weight ratio, and he is supported by the quiet workers of the crew in James Lee, Sean Kim and Puneet Baweja. They race with spirit thanks to calls of encouragement from Andrew Banh and Austyn Guo, and are well led by Erick Wong, who uses his experience to squeeze more power out of the crew. Their times have come down steadily throughout the season, and in their last race, they beat Newington comfortably and came close to St Ignatius.
Unfortunately, several people did drop out of the sport, and this has left a difficult number of people in the squad, where we couldn’t quite get a 3rd crew together. There are several rowers who did train this season, but didn’t make it into the 2 crews for Head of the River.
Thanks to Mr Barris, Ollie Wilson, John Croll, Jason Tassell, Robbie Girdler and Liam Benett for
their involvement in making this season work for us, and getting us fit and ready for races.
Year 9 Quads
Lastly I would like to encourage everyone to come along to the Gold Cup to support us, and of course to come to the Head of the River.

SYDNEY HIGH SCHOOL OLD BOYS’ UNION Life membership by instalments scheme
The Sydney High School Old Boys’ Union (the OBU) was founded in 1892. Over the past 115 years, it has fostered and continued the friendships formed by students while at school and through this fellowship contributed something of value to the School’s corporate spirit and well being.
Membership of the OBU will provide a lifetime of professional, social, sporting and academic connections with Sydney High, its network of old boys, and the alumni of other GPS schools.
Life membership can be secured by the payment of six small annual contributions throughout the passage from Year 7 to Year 12. Instalments are currently set at $44.
If, for some reason, all six payments have not been made by the time of leaving, the OBU will contact you and allow a further 12 months to pay any outstanding instalments.
We trust that you will see fit to pay this year's instalment towards securing your son’s life membership. Those of you who are already part of the scheme will know that the OBU posts copies of its quarterly magazine to all students who take part.
