We were delighted to welcome two visitors to the Narrabundah College assembly last week.

Captain Aaron Kogler presented the Australian Defence Force Academy Education Award to Angus. This award is presented to a student in recognition of leadership potential and academic and sporting achievements.

LCDR Stephen Blake presented the ADF Long Tan Youth Leadership and Teamwork Award to Aqeel.

This award recognises students who demonstrate leadership and teamwork within both their school and in the wider community.

We would like to sincerely congratulate both students and wish them all the best in their future endeavours.

Earth and Environmental Olympiad

Great news; two of our year 11 science students have been selected for the Science Olympiad Summer School that runs in January 2018, based on their result in the exam they sat in August. Rose is going for Earth and Environmental Science (first time we have ever had a student sit this paper) and Krishne for Physics. We are very excited for them.

Congratulations to Rose and Krishne from all of us at Narrabundah College. Well done!

Dorothea Mckellar award 2017.

Congratulations to Ejoy.

Dorothea Mckellar was an early 20th Century Australian poet most famous for her stirring work “My Country” written in 1908. Since 1984 the Dorothea Mckellar Award for poetry has been given in her honour. Since that time it has grown from an inaugural 300 entries to a competition which attracts tens of thousands of entries from school students across the nation. This year the award in the NSW Multicultural category has been won by Narrabundah College student Ejoy for her amazing poem “Phantoms”, described by the judges as a “Deeply moving and heartfelt poem of dislocation and belonging. “ Ejoy was presented with her trophy during last week’s assembly, along with some beautiful book prizes and a cheque for $500. Her wonderful poem is reproduced here for your enjoyment.
