Hello and welcome back to all,
I trust everyone enjoyed the break after a busy start to 2019. Firstly, I would like to thank David Walker
for filling in admirably while I went on Long Service leave during Term 1 of 2019.
Term 2 commenced
with much excitement as many rushed off to train for the upcoming football season. This year we will unearth
some exciting new talent across all grades, the long wait was over to pull on the red and black guernsey.
Our year 12 students enjoyed the combined activities night at PAC, starting with a nice meal and a fun
night with mixed Basketball, mixed Netball and other activities throughout the night.
Early in the
term our Year 8 and 9 indigenous boys participated in the McLeod Challenge at Thebarton Oval. With a few
boys unavailable to play our side was topped up with Year 9 boys. All players acquitted themselves well,
winning all games on the day. This winning formula earnt them the chance to play on Adelaide Oval prior
to the Eagles vs Crows AFL game. Our boys went on to win the challenge defeating the boys from Seaton
High. Score 8-8 to 7-5. Great result!

Reconciliation week was another busy week for
the boys with our Reconciliation High Tea on Monday night 27th May. This year's Guest speaker was
Documentary Filmmaker/Performer Martin Pascoe, who spoke extensively about the importance of reconciliation
and how important it is particularly to our younger generation.
L-R: Sean Henderson, Frederick
Campbell, Darcy McKenny, David York, Luke Homan and Hunter Elliott
His speech was appreciated by the entire
audience with a quick Q & A at the end. Jerome Avlonitis and Leonard Ferreira presented Ryan Lymn
(pictured below) with the non-indigenous award, while Frederick Campbell (relation of
Martin, pictured together below) made a presentation to Martin. Our sister school Loreto
attended the evening with our boys waiting on the girls during the evening. Special thanks to John Lochowiak
for once again doing the Welcome to Country.
I would also like to take this opportunity in
congratulating Cameron Taheney (pictured below) on making the U/18 State side which narrowly
defeated WA at Optus Stadium recently. Cameron has also made his League debut for Norwood this year kicking
10 goals in three games. Well done Cameron. Best of luck with the remaining U/18 fixtures.
Congratulations to Christian Wills who
was also selected to represent South Australia in Rugby Union (pictured above).
Next term we will welcome two new staff members to the boarding house with Tamara Hahn and
Nick Plumb joining us, both have spent time within the Rostrevor school community and have taken up the
opportunity to work in Boarding. We wish them well for term 3 and beyond.
We also welcome the
Bradford twins,(Thomas & Joshua) Jayden Gale, Nash Richman and Jesse Trevor all year 10 to Duggan
House at the commencement of term 3. I trust everyone will have an enjoyable and relaxing break at home,
look forward to you all returning on Sunday 21st July.
