The Duke of Ed is an enriching program which involves young people to participate in a number of activities over a set length of time. Participants design their own unique program centred around their interests and passions. It is our vision that our boys are empowered to explore their potential and achieve success through access and participation in The Duke of Ed.
Throughout the year we have been meeting weekly in room 42, and setting goals and planning how to achieve them. Each participant must take on volunteer work, physical activities, and skill building as well as developing some bushcraft which accumulates in an adventurous journey.

Congratulations to all year 8 who progressed well through term 2, welcome to the new enrollments. I commend you on the high standard of uniform you have maintained throughout the winter season and recommend the school scarves and beanies that are now available for purchase for providing extra warmth.
Year 8 – Community involvement - New Beginnings Program
Thursday 12th June - Friday 13th June
This was a two day program that aimed at building leadership skills of students and increase community engagement.
The annual CAPA night was held on a wet and chilly Thursday night this term. The evening started with an exhibition of the Yr12 Visual Arts students’ Body of Work that showcased the many talented students we have at our school. A big turnout of parents, friends and teachers viewed the artworks, and commented on the high standard and quality of the Body of Work produced by the students. The second part of the evening involved the Yr12 Music students performing their solo musical pieces that they will be doing for their HSC practical exams and again that brought enthusiastic applause from an appreciative audience. Once again the night proved to be a roaring success that highlights the many creative Yr12 CAPA students within our school. We wish the students every success with their upcoming HSC exams in term 4.
