Senior School news

As students and staff look forward to the Easter break, there is still action aplenty in the Senior School. As a new member of staff, it has been inspiring to witness the willingness of students to get involved in a variety of extra curricula activities.

Youth Voice Peak Group and NT Youth Round Table.

Stephanie Waugh and Charlotte Williams are currently participating in the Youth Voice Peak Group, while Ashley Parsons and Oliver Wurst have been selected for the NT Youth Round Table.

Run by the NT Government, students from a variety of schools come together to discuss issues impacting youth in the Northern Territory.

A special acknowledgement and congratulations to Charlotte, who has also been selected to join the National Student Voice Council.

Youth Global Sustainability Conference

Students from Haileybury Rendall School were offered an unprecedented opportunity to participate in an international conference on sustainability alongside other students within the extended Haileybury family.

The all-day conference was held in England and involved students from Melbourne, Darwin, Bangladesh, Astana, Almaty, Malta, and the UK.

Our group of extraordinary students Felix Bender (Year 11), Sam Reader (Year 10), Isaac Loganathan (Year 10) and Olympia Vea (Year 11) presented last Tuesday night on the topic of Fracking in the Northern Territory via Microsoft Teams.

All four students are to be commended on their hard work, maturity, and outstanding presentation skills.

Congratulations to all students involved in such important and exciting events, ensuring students have a voice in the wider community.

Chinese Excursion

On Thursday, 14 March Ms Chen and Ms Cheng treated my class to an excursion to the Loong Fong Chinese restaurant.

We enjoyed the tasting many traditional Chinese dishes, including Crispy Skin Chicken, Sizzling Beef and Duck with Plum Sauce.

Some favourites were the prawn crackers, fried rice, and noodles.

It was an amazing opportunity to practice our Chinese knowledge in a real-world setting, while enjoying authentic Chinese cuisine.

On behalf of everyone in the class, I would like to say a huge thanks to Ms Chen and Ms Cheng for sharing the experience with us.
