13 years of school­ing draw to a close for Year 12

This time of year is such a busy one for Year 12 stu­dents. Ma­jor works in the Cre­ative Art sub­jects such as Vis­ual Arts, Drama and Mu­sic have been sub­mit­ted or per­formed, as have projects in In­dus­trial Tech­nol­ogy, Ex­ten­sion 2 English, Ex­ten­sion His­tory and So­ci­ety and Cul­ture. The fo­cus now is on the up­com­ing ex­ams. The Gal­ston High School com­mu­nity wish our stu­dents all the best in the com­ing weeks.

New Pre­fect body elected

Our new pre­fect body has taken over the man­tle left by our depart­ing Year 12. Their In­duc­tion Cer­e­mony was held re­cently. School cap­tains Chloe Lawler and Cal­lum Trethowan ac­knowl­edged and thanked their pre­de­ces­sors in their speech to the stu­dent body when they stated, ‘As the up­com­ing year ap­proaches, we have the hard task of con­tin­u­ing the legacy left be­fore us… but we also want to cre­ate our own legacy. We will do this through re­al­is­tic goals and hard work, how­ever we ac­knowl­edge we will be in Year 12 and face some stren­u­ous times’.

Two Year 9 Gal­ston High School stu­dents re­cently at­tended the RYPEN (Ro­tary Youth Pro­gram of En­rich­ment) camp through the gen­eros­ity of Gal­ston Ro­tary.

Sam Lo­ria and El­iz­a­beth Relph at­tended a Ro­tary meet­ing re­cently to thank them for their gen­eros­ity and out­line what they gained from the camp.

Ru­bik’s Cube com­pe­ti­tion

Com­pe­ti­tion has been fierce re­cently at lunchtime in the li­brary as our Ru­bik’s Cube cham­pi­ons have been bat­tling it out for supremacy. Bryce in Year 10 had im­pres­sive times but Hud­son in Year 7 is hot on his heels. Mr Kim Sing was able to keep it real for all in­volved. He was the only one who needed cheat sheets to com­pete!
