Year 9 Captains' Report
Term 3 is in full swing, everyone should have their subjects worked out by now.
Recently, there has been many activities happening around the school; Athletics Day, Information Night, 2019 Course Selections, EIS tryouts, World Challenge ‘Sausage Sizzle’ and LHS The Voice competition.
On Thursday 2 August, the whole school had Athletics Day, where everyone had the opportunity to 'dress to impress' in their house colours and show off their skills in their chosen events like; sprints, shot put, long jump, discus and many more. It was great to see so many Year 9's participating in this fun and exciting day. I'm sure the main highlight of the day was when the teachers had the relay race and we watched them run and compete for the best teacher title.
The overall 'House Winner' was Tate;
1st: Tate with 3,152 points
2nd: Cummins with 2,427 points
3rd: Deakin with 2,415 points
4th: Everard with 1,516 points
On Wednesday and Friday of last week, students who wanted to further themselves in their chosen sport, could try out for EIS (Excellent In Sport). EIS will be an elective for students who were successfully selected into Basketball, Football, Netball and Tennis.
In addition, on Wednesday and Friday last week, students participated in the beep test, 20m sprints and vertical jump. Congratulations to all students who were successful.
On Monday 30 July, the 2019 Course Selection Information Evening, was held to inform all students and their parents about subject selection for next year. The 'Subject Selection' closes on Friday 10 August; so make sure your forms are signed and in so you can get all the subjects you want.
At lunchtime, on Friday 3 August, 'The World Challenge' students held a ‘Sausage Sizzle’ to help support people in 'Third World' countries. The sausages were pretty good!
Over the past few weeks in front of the PAC, the LHS Voice competition was held. There were some talented students and some brave teachers performing. Congratulations to all students who made it to the Grand Final.
