Person of the Week – 23/8/19
AALIYAH FRANCHINA 2M
Aaliyah, it is an absolute pleasure to name you as our Junior Person of the Week, as you are very deserving of such praise and recognition.
Not a day goes by that you don’t live the TRUE values. You are a mature and trustworthy student who always settles to your work quickly and quietly. You are always engaged in class discussions and activities, finding the balance of working and socialising.
You are respectful in all your interactions and whenever there is a problem you solve it with maturity, always having everyone’s best interest at heart.
You are the perfect example of a good friend and a wonderful role model for your peers. It is said that a smile is worth a thousand words and Aaliyah, the smile you constantly have on your face says so much to everyone around you. Your smile is comforting to those who are upset, friendly to those you don’t know, supportive to those who are struggling and best of all it lights up the entire classroom every day. You consistently try your best in all that you do and no matter what challenges you may face, you never give up and you maintain your positive, can do attitude.
You are a smart, kind and compassionate student and we are very blessed to have you in 2M.
Your future is very bright, and I know you will achieve amazing things.
Well done Aaliyah!
DENZIL NATALOTTO 4W
Denzil, they say that the quality of a person’s character is truly revealed when they face adversity. In Sport, it is where champions reveal themselves through their ability to pick themselves up and not only carry on but excel in ways, they never thought possible. It’s like a key unlocking the door to someone’s true abilities, and, Denzil, you have revealed what a truly capable young person you are to all of us in Four White.
Despite the physical set back you experienced this term, you have shown determination and persistence to not let this affect your learning in class. In fact, the effort you have been showing seems to have increased! You are dedicated to achieving your best and are consistently looking for new ways to challenge yourself. The joy you experience when learning new concepts lights up our class, inspiring us all strive to be the best version of ourselves that we can possibly be.
We in Four White have nothing but admiration for you, Denzil, and it has been just wonderful to see you make this progress. You thoroughly deserve this award. Congratulations on being named Senior Person of the Week!

We’ve had another highly successful couple of weeks at the Performing Arts Festival with performances from our Alto Sax Trio – (Matthew Figueiredo, Joshua Clements, Willis O’Brien) and Woodwind & Brass students.
It was indeed a great pleasure to attend the Guitar Solo performances on Thursday. Our guitarists all performed to a very high standard.
A special thank you to Mr Parry and Mr Deacon for preparing their students so thoroughly.
Best of luck to our Dance Club who will perform on Friday evening. I can’t wait to see our dancers on the big stage in those amazing costumes!
Congratulations to all our performers over the past few weeks who’ve embraced the challenge of representing
