Morning Notes

Wednesday 6 May

Football Result

Well done to the boys football team who won 6-4 vs ICS yesterday. Our team raced into a 3-0 lead early on with good goals from Nathan but were pegged back to 3-3. Will found his scoring boots to get a couple late on to seal the result. Captain Kieran was a beast of a defender while Cameron, Raif, Andres and Tanguy also played well.

Interested in debate?

Interested in debate; tired of adults making inept decisions; do you struggle with the important issues; is it 'education, education, education' or do you believe it is 'the economy stupid'; do you say 'yes we can' more than Obama, are you interested in making a stand and making a change.

Everyone has to start somewhere, start today after school with model united nations club. Everyone is welcome and you could get the opportunity to debate at Halcyon MUN.
