Girl Power at North­holm!

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - News -

Last week of Term One was par­tic­u­larly re­ward­ing for some of our girls. Be­gin­ning with a group of Year Seven girls un­der the watch­ful eyes of their Art teacher, Miss Bar­low, and the new Year Four teacher, Mr Mil­ner, an avid fan of film­mak­ing, at­tended the Kids­flickz In­ter­na­tional Film for Chil­dren Fes­ti­val af­ter the girls were nom­i­nated for awards in three dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories:

• The Bardic Stu­dio Award for Best Film Pro­duced by a School

• Women in Film and Tele­vi­sion Award for the Best Film Pro­duced by a Girl

• An­i­mal Logic Award for Best An­i­ma­tion by a Child

The girls, Ruby Cox, Faith Tre­strail, Lil­liana D’An­gola and Tyler Old went home tri­umphant af­ter be­ing awarded the ‘Best Film Pro­duced by a Girl’ for their film ‘ The Chang­ing Life of Syd­ney’.

Fol­low­ing on from this suc­cess, Ca­rina Sirolli at­tended a cer­e­mony at the Univer­sity of Syd­ney where she re­ceived a Year Ten Aca­demic Ex­cel­lence Award. Ca­rina achieved this pres­ti­gious award based on her over­all grades re­sult­ing in Dux of Year Ten 2015.

To con­clude what was to be a week of tri­umph, our Un­der 15 Girls Bas­ket­ball Team (Mys­tics) won their grand fi­nal against Tan­gara 19-15 then backed up to play in the Un­der 16 Girls (Stars) com­pe­ti­tion where they were again suc­cess­ful against Tan­gara win­ning con­vinc­ingly with a score of 28-13.

We were also de­lighted to re­ceive the news that the 2014, School Cap­tain, Mor­gan King­ham, has been se­lected as the 2016 Cas­tle Hill RSL Kokoda Youth Lead­er­ship Scholar and will fly to PNG to walk the Kokoda Trail as the Am­bas­sador for the RSL. While at North­holm, Mor­gan was the re­cip­i­ent of her Gold Award in the Duke of Ed­in­burgh Pro­gram, a con­tribut­ing fac­tor to her suc­cess in be­ing ap­pointed to this ex­cit­ing role.

Is it a co­in­ci­dence per­haps, or just very timely, that our Chapel theme for next term is to be ‘ Women of Grace and Courage’. Rest as­sured, how­ever, that our boys aren’t for­got­ten. The Term Three Chapel theme will be ‘Men of Hon­our’.
