 tolerance and to encourage people to live in

 Its content is considered to be very relevant to
 students as they encounter media images of
 intolerance and prejudice or when they
 experience racism or bullying at school.

It provokes conversations about social justice and
bystander intervention in our communities. Courage to

                                                     On Friday 4 June, a team of 42 students went with
                                                     Miss Heinjus and Mrs Davidson to Alexandra Park
                                                     for the Zone Athletics Carnival.

                                                    It was a cold and busy day, with many students in
                                                    multiple events. Our
                                                    students performed
                                                    incredibly well, achieving
                     some personal bests in the running, jumping and
                     throwing events. Our relay teams were impressive, with
                     our senior girls’ team taking out the win; unfortunately
                     they were later disqualified.

                     We had a number of finalists in the running events and
                     Ollie, Didier and Tuli all took second place overall in their
                     respective events and will be invited to the Riverina
                     Athletics Carnival next term. Congratulations everyone            Didier, Tuli and Ollie will
                     on your sportsmanship, effort and enthusiasm.                     attend the Riverina level
