Term 1 - week 4
The year 2020 is well under way for Centenary Heights State High School. Entering week four already, it's going to be difficult slowing down and enjoying our final year.
The 2020 year sevens have entered through the Centenary Heights gates to begin their high schooling careers. With yet another large cohort, well over 300, the sevens have begun what is a 6-year adventure. Thanks to hard working and caring teachers, year 7 students have transitioned smoothly into high school life.
Year 7 camp is fast approaching, only 1 week away. Both the at school camp and Runaway Bay camp will be a great experience for our sevens, providing yet again another opportunity for friendships and connections to be made with both younger and older students.
Week 2 saw the presentation of the senior badges to our Year 12's. The Year 12's are quickly adjusting to becoming the leaders of the school, making good use of the International kitchen already. Much to the delight of the cohort, week 2 also saw the distribution of the 2020 senior jerseys. The Year 12's are wearing their jerseys with pride… even when the weather is much too hot.
The Centenary Heights swimming carnival took place this Monday and Tuesday. The Junior swimming carnival saw some incredible efforts from our younger students, with many of them booking themselves a spot in the TSSS trials. Curran House was the eventual winner of the Junior swimming carnival! The Senior swimming carnival also saw some amazing efforts from those who participated. Great house spirit and the bravery of our students to get in and have a swim made the day all the more enjoyable. The final house results will be announced at the next full school parade. Go Curran.
There are many opportunities to get involved within our school community. Whether it be sporting teams, choir, band or the musical there's something for everyone in 2020. We, as captains, look forward to the year ahead and can't wait to keep you updated.
