From the Principal

High Talent
A pat on the back to all geographers.! High was ranked first school in Australia in the 2009 National Geographic Channel Australia Geography Competition. Ashwin Rudder was equal first in NSW. Excellent work also by Andrew Chan, Andy Ho and Yu Sing Chan (Year 10) who were equal fifth in the state. Congratulations to Craig Moller (Year 9) for his selection in the U16 NSW Metropolitan basketball team to play at the national championships in Tasmania. Cameron Morrison (Year 10) won through to the Regional Final of the Plain English Speaking Award – great work! Well done to Stephen Garofano (Year 12) and Antony Paul (Year 11) who were chosen in the CHS state squad for debating.

Connected Classroom Installed
We now have a connected classroom with video conferencing capability, interactive whiteboard, cameras and TV screen. Room 606 now has the potential for live student to student as well as teacher to student interactions. Staff and students are invited to contribute to the range of possible uses to which this new technology may now be directed.

Athlete Support Program Returns
The Athlete Support Program (ASP) that was trialled last year is returning. Students in first or second grade GPS teams are eligible to attend the nine sessions in the program. The aim of the program is to help busy athletes get organised, study better, stick to a routine, stay focussed and attend to specific learning areas in two major subjects. This year the sessions will commence at 3:20 each Friday. The sessions will run until 4:30 each week. The introductory registration session is Friday, May 22. I expect Year 12s to attend. The following week is Armidale and no session will be held. Year 11s (and others) can commence the sessions on Friday, May 29. Coaching in Mathematics and English will be available during the sessions from May 29 on a flexible format of group and individual blocks of time. Students in any Year who are in the two top GPS sides are eligible to join the group. Could coaches please advise their teams of this program.

GPS Athletics Carnival
The GPS athletics season culminates in the impressive AAGPS Athletics carnival at the Homebush athletics stadium. Our team is large and has trained well. Our staff and coaches have been preparing solidly since the Head of the River and we look forward to building on our competitive results from last year’s carnival. The carnival is a great team event because every competitor scores points for his school. We need every competitor to attend the carnival and also to compete in the scheduled events. We have been granted extra seating this year, following last year’s better support from the High Family. Let us again get behind our dedicated athletes and recognise their efforts. I urge boys to show High Spirit and get out to Homebush on Saturday.

Anzac Day Assemblies
In order to afford all students the opportunity to be involved in our Anzac Day commemoration, we held separate assemblies for the Junior and Senior Schools. At the High Junior School assembly, Year 9 speakers William Baxter, Tom Connolly and Robert Sternhell delivered interesting reflections on war and Shaun Pak was the MC. I enjoyed the assembly and believe that we ought to make more of our opportunities to celebrate events as High Junior and Senior Schools.

Australian Sports Foundation Donations
Thank you to all those dedicated parents who have made tax deductible donations to assist various sports. Since November last year, we have received grants for: Sports Equipment ($13,077), Sports Facility development ($6389) and Sports Development Fund ($882). These grants represent all funds donated by parents. They help to develop the capacity of various sports and are not used in running costs to administer them. If you would like to assist your son’s sport, talk to your MIC about where funds are needed.

To play or not to play…that is the question

Does playing first or second grade for High in your final year at school adversely affect your HSC results? This is a critical question for students and parents. Our research on Year 12 students in the sports represented in the table indicate that students perform at or near their ability level even if they participate in one or more GPS sports at the most demanding level. Several elite sportsmen were awarded entry bonuses of 5 UAI points when qualifying for their university courses. Parents are exhorted to allow their sons to have a balanced life, even in Year 12. Success is about personal management, volition and self-discipline, not about whether or not you are playing sport.

From the Andrews Junior Library

What is special about our Library situation at High? The answer to that is money – specifically – the parent donations of $425,222. Thanks to the recognition of the work done by libraries in our school for our very special clientele; High parents have donated around $53,000 annually to the Library Fund.

It is because of this fund that our school now has both a Senior Library and a Junior Library. Unlike most schools where the Library’s budget was unable to purchase adequate resources High has a quality library. With all the quite justified excitement of creating a Senior Library boys should be encouraged to use the Library database to find the huge number of resources these funds have quite recently purchased. (Library staff is going to a lot of trouble to put subject added entries in so that searching can be fruitful)

It is because of parent donations to the Library Fund that the Andrews Library has been enabled to purchase such a boy-oriented fiction and a Head Teacher personally-selected nonfiction collection.

It is because of the Library Fund that we have state of the art photocopiers, lots of extra computers and printers and that we had a laptop trolley and wireless computers. We have also purchased G Proxy to ensure that parents, boys and teachers can find our catalogue on home or staffroom computers. We now have the software to run a printing and photocopying account for all students, so that boys are free to print up work and assignments.

It is because of the Library Fund that the Librarian of the Andrews Library has been able to run a Literacy Circles Course for the past four years which has introduced both Year 7 and Year 8 readers to brand new books by the latest smashingly successful children’s authors.

It is because of this fund that we have run an Archive with an Archivist since 2001. This is High’s way of reaching out to Old Boys.

It is because of this fund that the Andrews Library was able to open early and provide such a fabulous service that its OASIS transactions tripled from 10,000 in 2001 to 30,000 in 2005.

Despite not being able to raise quite enough money to build a new library outright, the story of libraries at High has been quite a remarkable success story. Its’ fabulous loan record, quality resources and high student usage reflects our enthusiastic students.

In fact our little 1960’s library was so overcrowded and popular that our Principal decided to employ a librarian and re-fit the Senior Study as a Cyber Library -as there is no room for books in the Senior Library space. The Andrews Library had an average of 830 students daily walking through our gate counters - we kept records.

The Andrews Library still averages 700 daily walk throughs even with 2 libraries in operation. The Senior Library, also, is really well used. Even as a Junior Library, we still have in excess of 90 boys in the Library before school. Libraries are popular places at Sydney Boys High.

For the last two years the Andrews Library loaned, on average, 13,500 loans. From our surveys it appears that half of these were nonfiction. The combined Senior and Junior Andrews Book Library has a hugely re-vamped book collection specially selected by each subject’s Head Teacher and houses books no older than 15 years old. Our fiction, magazine and daily paper table is oriented at boys reading and is very popular and refreshed annually by $8000 worth of purchases and includes resources requested by students. In recent years there has been an effort to create a Visual Literacy Collection which is very popular with the Junior Boys.

The DVD and Video collection which has been developed for boys to borrow has also proved very popular and has added to the variety of resources. Enough money makes our library world go round.

Student Health Precautions

Due to current public health warnings, we would like to remind parents and guardians of the need to inform the school immediately if your son has any form of contagious illness (eg. Influenza, Chicken Pox, Measles, Mumps, Glandular Fever).

Although this is a major concern for everyone, we have some students at our school whose health could be more seriously affected than others by contact with any of these diseases.

  • If your son is sick (and it might be contagious) please keep him at home until he is well.
  • If your son contracts a serious illness of any sort, please inform the school so we can take the necessary precautions to ensure the wellbeing of all our students (and staff).
  • Your contact with the school will be confidential and you should direct your call to the Deputy Principals, Year Adviser or the Head Teacher Student Welfare (Mr Walker).
  • Additional information regarding procedures for sickness and injury can be found in the school diary or on the school website.

We are keen to provide a safe, healthy environment for our boys

Managing HSC Stress

A Free Managing HSC Stress Program This is a four week program for students who are currently completing Year 11 and Year 12. The program aims to assist students to better manage the stress of the HSC and teaches a broad range of skills that can be helpful in any stressful situation. It can also be useful for students who are struggling with anxiety, low self-esteem or low mood. The next program will be run in Term 2, 2009 starting on Tuesday 26 May at the Royal North Shore Hospital, St. Leonards. Sessions will run from 4pm-5.30pm.

20th/21st Century Concert
Our 20th & 21st Century Concert held last Saturday evening was a great follow up to our successful Night at the Movies Spring Music Concert last year. The evening began with the spectacular entrance of all the musicians in senior athletics who had just finished their races out at Homebush and rushed in to perform in the senior concert band. There was a wide variety of repertoire performed ranging from Grainger to Vaughan Williams and Masgagni to Rolf Harris. The highlight of the evening was the Senior Elective Students’ rendition of Coldplay’s Viva La Vida which ‘brought the house down’ and the light Entertainer music during the interval with Andre Brokman, Thomas Wilson and Jesse Chen. Thank you to all who came along and supported the students’ hard work in this very busy time. A special thank you to Anirban Ghose (Yr 11) who organised the stage set up which ensured the smooth running of the concert and huge thanks to all the parents who organised the sausage sizzle before the concert, refreshments during the interval and raffles for the concert creating a lovely and relaxing atmosphere.

Music Camp

SBHS Debating

Last week saw the Grand Final for the Eastside Debating Competition with SBHS being represented by Years 9, 11 and 12 and winning BOTH senior debates! The topic for the senior debates was that “The Federal stimulus package is a waste of money”. Big cheers to all the boys who have contributed to the success of the SBHS debating squad across the competition but specific mention must go to the boys who won the debates!

Senior A (defeated Sydney Girls): Max Phillis, Justin Chan and Stephen Garofano

Senior B (defeated SCEGGS): Chris Wong, Angud Chawla, Puneet Baweja

FED Round 5, SBHS v Trinity, Friday 15th May
This is the last week of the Friday Evening Debating Competition and we are at Home against Trinity (apologies for the error in last week’s notes – we were against Joeys). The topic area is Science and Technology. It is essential that all Year levels have a win in order for us to have a strong showing going into the semi finals (starting Friday 29th May).

A big thanks to the DSG for a fantastic info session last week which hopefully cleared up some of the conventions of adjudications and selections. It was great to see meet some new parents and I hope they continue to be involved with the DSG which is essential for the continued functioning of the debating program.

GPS Team Selections
By now all boys have been invited to nominate themselves for selections for the GPS Debate team. GPS debating begins in Term 3 with 12-16 boys being selected to represent the school at each Year level.
I am often asked what our coaches consider in determining who makes the team for GPS and the answer is that it is a balance of factors. The obvious answer is performance in the selection debate (run as part of coaching over the next few weeks) and in other debates held so far. However, we must also consider: performance and attitude in coaching; preparation for coaching including performance in quizzes; and, that students have returned a signed code of conduct and made their co-payment.

Students who have not made their co-payment cannot be part of the GPS squad.

Above all, selections are made based on the experience of our coaches and the need to form the best and most compatible teams as possible. As any parent can imagine, even if a boy is the most brilliant speaker in the Year, if they cannot work as part of a team or are disruptive to the learning of others then it is to the detriment of the greater squad to have them as part of the team.

I ask all boys to give their best efforts in selection debates and in their continued behaviour in coaching.

More information can be found at www.sydneyhigh.org/debating and will be emailed to you on a weekly basis.

Please CHECK YOUR EMAIL regularly and ensure we have current contact details for both students and parents.

PARENTS: If you are not receiving weekly emails about debating please email us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and ask to be added to the parent group for your child’s year.

Senior Rugby

Senior Rugby players which include Year 10 have been involved in working together to improve the standard of Rugby played at High. The key strategic areas we can improve upon are

  1. Strength
  2. Fitness
  3. Skills (Defence and attacking guides.)
  4. Vision.

The number of senior rugby players consistently logging their Strength, Fitness and Rugby sessions has certainly intensified. Many thanks must go to Mr Devlin for co-ordinating the Athletics logbook which has made tracking the Rugby Athletes a lot easier.

Many thanks must also go to Mr Tassell for co-ordinating weight sessions at the Waratahs Gym. A highlight and reward for the players who have consistently logged their training throughout the pre-season. TJ has also organised an elite squad of 30 senior players who will be provided with a Body Science training shirt and receive 30 supplement packages at a 50% reduction in price.

The school weights room is open early Monday and Wednesday mornings for Snr rugby players to log their strength sessions. The Rugby committee along with TJ have also been able to feed the boys straight after a weights session on these mornings. Hot baked spuds on a bread roll have been on offer and may even lead to a hot bowl of spaghetti in the future. Too many boys neglect the basic dietary requirements for playing rugby. The intake of Carbohydrates such as potatoes, pasta and bread will help the boys recover and provide much needed muscle bulk. The player’s diet should also include as much fresh fruit and vegetables as possible.

A player should also never be thirsty and should drink plenty of water before, during and after training. It is expected that players bring their own water bottles to training and hydrate as much as possible.

Many Year 10 Rugby players are Log booking for the first time and this will be an expectation for boys wishing to continue to play Snr rugby. Overall, the coaches are very impressed with the Year 10 rugby players who have taken up the challenge to consistently log and improve their Rugby. The following boys deserve a mention and should be congratulated for their efforts.

Vin Anandaselvakumar, Shimon Danziger,Timothy Gollan, Lee Ming, Eric Ovadia, Jonah Petrie, Michael Phung, Shanaz Razeen, Sheikh Siddiqui, Sangeeth Subramaniam, Michael Wong and Isnad Zaman.

There are still a number of players who need to increase the number of sessions per week. Try to aim for at least 3 rugby, 1 weight and 1 sprint sessions a week.

At training it is delightful to see the opens appreciate the Year 10s involvement in their warm-up and into the fiery cauldron of team contact sessions. As always it ends with a handshake no matter who is the victor. I was surprised to see Jonah Petrie, Matthew Petrenas, Leon Li and a few other Year 10s not take a backward step against a superior opens pack. The team contact sessions will continue and are of great benefit as teams learn how to perform their patterns of defence and attack under pressure.

There are some things you can’t learn in a classroom which are highly valued in life. Being involved in the school’s Rugby program will most definitely develop your skills of leadership, teamwork, patience, belief and determination. The next Rugby article will include the results of Year 11 and 12 log booking and our progress with Skills and Vision at Rugby training. Snr Rugby including Year 10 will train on these afternoons

Tuesday & Thursday afternoons 3:30 to 5:00 at MacKay Wednesday sport 1:00 to 3:20 at Mackay Committed players should organise their after school activities (tutoring etc) so that these afternoons are free for Rugby training. Senior Coaches -Mr Hannon, Mr Aldous, Mr Scrivener, Mr Storey, Mr Tassell

Shore Invitational Carnival

On Saturday 9th May, the final Invitational Athletics carnival saw High undergo its final race preparations before the 114th AAGPS Athletics Carnival is held on 16th May. Following on excellent past week results, High was able to continue this form into the carnival, with many excellent placings on both the track and on the field.

The U13s had some amazing results, with Maurice Lam taking out the 100m, and placing 2nd in the 200m, while Hayden Lam placed 3rd in the 100m. Anton Brokman followed up on his successful previous week with a 3rd place in the 90m hurdles. Eric Lee performed well in the long jump, placing 2nd. Ivor Metcalf was the stand-out of the U14s, taking out the high jump, and placing in the hurdles and long jump. Ming Chin also performed well, coming 3rd in the 200m.

In the 15s age group, places were gained by Pasan Pannila in the 1500m, in addition to Kevin Tian in the hurdles and T Ling in the long jump. Brian Kelly continued his excellent results throughout the season, gaining 2nd in the 100 and 200 double, while fellow U16 Chris Morrow jumped a massive 1.95m to win the high jump. In the U17s, Max Kite came 2nd in the shot put with another great result, while the stand out of the 17s was Tim Siu, winning the 400m with a PB of 53.6s.

The highlight of the Opens division was Kerrod McPherson, running 3rd in the 200m. The great results in the individual sprints transferred into the relays. The 100m relay events was a clear strong point of the day, where High posted placings in the 13s, 14s, 16s, 17s, and Opens age groups. It must also be noted that many competitors ran personal best times, however there are too many to name. Much appreciation must go to all helpers throughout the day, in addition to all the parents who supported their child in the stands.

As High Athletics makes the final leap before GPS Athletics on Saturday, the results at this and previous invitational carnivals speak for themselves. Great prospects are set to ensue this weekend.

Sydney High School Rifle Club coaching seminar

The Sydney High School Rifle Club was honoured to host two legends of Australian rifle shooting who delivered a coaching seminar for 14 club students at the ANZAC Rifle Range over the weekend of 9-10 May 2009. The two presenters were Brigadier Bruce Scott CSC who won the Individual Fullbore Rifle Match gold medal and also a silver medal in the Fullbore Pairs Rifle Match at the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne in 2006; and Don Brooks, a three time Australian Olympian (1972, 1976 and 1988), a three times Australian Commonwealth Games representative (1974, 1978 and 1986), smallbore world champion and world record holder. Each was eminently qualified to deliver their series of excellent presentations including building a perfect shooting position, goal setting, concentration skills and the elements of sports psychology used by elite level shooters.

The seminar was planned to comprise both classroom lectures and range shooting however, poor weather on the Sunday precluded shooting and the students were instead introduced to an advanced laser based coaching computer simulator. The lessons learned by all who attended will serve them well for the remainder of their shooting careers.

Old boys Kevin Chan, Justin Hill, Sam Kremer and Ishan Nadkarni assisted with the conduct of the presentation. Thanks are also due to Administrative MIC, Cathy Meaney, who provided excellent catering on both days to the horde of hungry club members.
