The GPS Swimming Finals are this Friday the 29th of March!!!
Everyone is encouraged to go to support their fellow students (AWARD SCHEME POINTS APPLY)
Udon Day is also on this Friday (same day as GPS swimming)…
A ticket must be purchased on Friday morning before school. This is then used at lunch to redeem your Udon.
Message from the SRC – Please do not run in the hallways!
As for bucket hats, there have not been enough orders so they are cancelled as for now.
Udon Day is approaching: 29th March. Don’t forget to make pre-orders for your udon on the day!
Bag storage problems – an issue was raised that the box outside 201 is making the corridor too crowded. The student who raised this issue will have to consult with teachers himself.
All students are encouraged to go to Head of the River this Saturday @ Penrith, award scheme points apply. GPS Swimming Carnival is next Friday @ SOPAC, award scheme points also apply.
A year 12 common room for study was proposed last week; this will not go forward since it will be too difficult to schedule teachers on duty for supervision of room, since all rooms with students are required to be supervised.

SBHS Bucket hats can now be ordered from the High Store for $27.50. The hats come in 3 sizes (S/S, S/M & L/XL).
A minimum of 100 orders is required and you MUST pre-order to get a hat.
Unfortunately, Udon Day has been cancelled, although it is certain we will revisit this event next year.
We will receive the bucket hat pre-orders early next year.
The minimum number of pre-orders for the bucket hat has been reduced to 100 people. The bucket hat will be $27.
The date for Udon day has been set, and will be held on Tuesday 11/12/2018. The price for an Udon cup will be $2.
Jivan Naganathan has been elected to be the Year 10 SRC Tech Support for 2019
Concerning bucket hats, there has been a minimum number set of 300 pre-orders needed by the High Store to make an order. This should be achievable since 700 voted for bucket hats in the poll.
An Udon/Ramen day next year is expected to happen, the date and other details are to be determined.
In 2019, our school will be having three combined events with SGHS- Junior Dance, Talent Quest and Trivia night. The finalised event times are:
Trivia night : Thursday Week 8, Term 3
Talent Quest : Week 10, Term 2
Junior Dance : Week, Term 2
With the Year 11 SRC transitioning to Year 12, a new SRC executive body was recently elected.
Lachlan Ho will be the president of the SRC, with Ritchie Ah-koon as vice president and Alex Zhou as secretary. We will try our best to live up to (and surpass) the Year 11 SRC.
Concerning bucket hats, the most popular design was Number 2 (the one that had the logo and said “HIGH”) and the chosen colour was light blue. Now, an appropriate cost for the bucket hat has to be decided upon. The school also needs to pre-order a certain amount, in full, for the High Store. You will be able to put in your pre-orders in the near future.
Also, with the transition to a new executive body, students should expect Udon/Ramen Day to happen next year.
