Our May News Wrap

This year has been flooded with various exciting events and activities, which have definitely raised the College spirit and brought students closer together. The first semester has flown by so fast and is now almost at an end, leaving the two of us eager to introduce the various College activities planned for the rest of the year; as well as reflecting on the various accomplishments which our community has achieved so far.

2014 is finally here, and it’s already off to a great start. Time flies when you’re having fun they say, and it definitely has; seeing that we’ve almost already finished our first school term. 
 
The College has hosted a variety of in events this term; most notably, the World’s Greatest Shave in which we had a number of brave students and teachers shave their heads and raised almost $10,000 for the Leukemia Foundation; and also Harmony Week which raised awareness of the various cultures within Australia by celebrating with the use of specific cultural foods each day.

Message from School Captain

So it's that time of the year again when Kormilda converges on Marrara Athletics Stadium to compete house-against-house in our annual athletics carnival. Throughout the week the house rivalry has been running strong with a Djarrak infiltration into the Baru house assembly last Thursday.
 

A message from George

Last term was a fresh start to a new year, and a fresh start means a new focus for the new School Leadership Team.
 
The Leadership Team had focused on bullying; the objective was to remove any form of bullying from our learning environment. The House Captains were assigned to do a presentation on anti-discrimination to our senior year students from Years 10 to 12. The inaugural 2013 Kormilda College Anti Bullying March saw positive changes within the yards of our College community. Students are coming closer together and respect each other’s cultural diversities.

2012 Through a School Captain’s Eyes
2012 was a year that I'll always remember. It signified the end of everything I've ever known as a student, and 2013 signifies a new beginning.

Term Three Already!

It's already Week 4 of Term 3, and it's starting to get to crunch time. Not just for us lowly Year 12 students, but I suppose for everyone. It's starting to get hectic, and for us Year 12s, we're starting to think about our futures, uni, work, exams. It's fairly stressful. How have I been coping with the stress? Kicking back, listening to or playing music for a good while most days – it's how I alleviate stress, and I really encourage everyone to try and have some kind of stress-reliever, doesn't matter if you're in Year 6 or in Year 12, everyone's got to have some respite from school.

The Carbon Tax isn’t all bad news

Amidst political turmoil over the government's new carbon tax, and polls showing that the majority of Australians do not support it, a beacon of positivity shines through the smog from an unlikely quarter. Delaware Ltd., Australia's largest manufacturer of kitchen appliances, has announced that, beginning next week, all toasters produced will no longer be equipped with the capacity to toast bread beyond the "deliciously crispy" setting.
 

OPINION PIECE: Spirituality and! And me.

By Stephen W. Enciso
Spirituality refers to that other dimension that we are linked to but cannot quantify. The contention of spirituality is that there exists a body and a spirit: the body is merely physical and can die, but the spirit lives on forever. Those who practice spitituality see to transcend the parameters of mortal life – religions, whatever they may be, aim to provide followers with the spiritual aid necessary for this purpose – in an attempt to engage with that elusive other dimension.
