SRC REPORT by Jason Beveridge
The SRC held its first meeting for the year on Friday 10 February. The meeting was well attended and we encourage interested students from all year levels to attend the next meeting. The first order of business was to elect a leadership team. The leadership team in 2017 comprises of; President – Sage Robbins, Vic-President – Georgina Jackson, Treasurer – Brad McKenzie, Secretary – Skye McKenzie.
The next order of business was to organise a best dressed competition and barbecue for the swimming sports. Many students went to the effort of dressing up, many more wore their house colours, and this ensured the swimming sports were a colourful event. The best dressed male was awarded to Marcus Watson and the best dressed female to Rose Morrissey. Congratulations to both of them and they received a $20 voucher courtesy of the SRC. The best dress from each house also received $5 canteen vouchers courtesy of the SRC. The swimming sports barbecue was also a huge success and raised over $200 for the SRC. Well done to everyone who supported the barbecue and a special well done to the senior boys who did a great job of preparing, cooking and managing the barbecue. Thankyou Douglas Jackson, Harley Reynolds, Jason Coverdale, George Gay, Michael Russell and Lachlan Price.

Thank you to Justin Staunton for taking over Ms Podbury’s classes – what a coup for the Maths Department! Finally, a huge thank you to Gill Hampson for her guidance and encouragement to me throughout this year.

FREE EVENT: “You The Man” Live Theatre Performance
Women’s Health & Wellbeing Barwon South West is bringing the thought-provoking one-man play “You The Man” to the south west for school and community performances during the 16 Days of Activism against gender-based violence. “You The Man” is a play about dating violence and bystander action, followed by a panel discussion with key people in the field of family violence. The engaging and entertaining live theatre performance will see one man play six characters (none of whom are victims or perpetrators) wrestling with their responses to unhealthy relationship issues. ??With teen and university dating abuse shockingly common, addressing unhealthy relationships and dating violence prevention and intervention is needed now more than ever.
