A Musical Item From Last Week’s Formal Assemblies

Solan Rai

Demonstrating our school value – ASPIRATION – setting high expectations and striving for high achievement. Solan has never had a guitar lesson and is self-taught from watching videos on the internet. He started teaching himself 18 months ago and currently practices at least two hours each day. His goal is to be as good as Tommy Emanuel is – Solan is one of many boys at our school who have high expectations of themselves and is a fine example of our school values

Principal’s Blog

This video captures a conversation about Blended Learning and BYOT between the Principal Mr Kilpatrick and Assistant Principal Ben Wilson.  Both of these initiatives are not new to our school, rather we are stepping them up a gear to maximise the learning outcomes for our students.  The audience for this video is for all families especially those with year 9 students.

This video defines what both Blended Learning and BYOT is and our progress in these initiatives to date.

National Day of Action Against Bullying

The national day of action against bullying was an important day for all to stand up and show resilience against bullying and to highlight the importance of a good school morale. New Town started off the day with the prefects and house captains holding signs for the community to see our work for the campaign. We then had sessions conducted by the peer support leaders for some anti-bullying tasks, finishing off the morning with a game of flags between the grade 10 peer support leaders and the grade 7’s. The whole day turned out to be a huge success for all, spreading the importance through the school and community.
