Jake Sharp

Hey, everyone! My name is Jake (aka Sharpie), and I am honoured to be representing the finest and greatest House of them all, Rashi. From House music, sports carnivals and so many other events, I cannot wait to work alongside Arielle, Ms Lijovic, our fellow Tutor Group and all the Rashians over the course of these next 12 months. Exciting times, for sure!

A massive thank you to our former House Captains – Jesse and Jayda, for everything over the last year and hopefully we can maintain and enhance the Rashi spirit and culture they provided.

So, a little bit about me. I love playing sports (basketball especially), I play the piano; I like learning useless skills in my spare time; my favourite number is 10; my spirit animal is a turtle (according to this wacky website) and if I could have any superpower, it would be the ability to shape-shift.

My favourite Rashi memory was earlier this year, spending time with the Year 7s over Somerset camp, truly an unforgettable experience. I hope that, as a House, we can create many more memorable moments, especially seeing as our Year 12’s High School journey is slowly coming to an end. Looking forward to lots of fun!




Arielle Melamed

Hi guys, I’m Arielle – one of your new House Captains! I’m super excited to get to know you all and lead Rashi (the best House) for the year to come. If I had to describe myself in three words it would be curious, creative and random, as I’m sure you’ll all find out very soon. My favourite food is a dutch biscoff spread (speculoos) which is absolutely delicious, and which I will eat with anything, while my least favourite food is yoghurt (I know! Unpopular opinion I guess…). I also really like making caramel slices. Like Sharpie, I love music and play piano as well as guitar and ukulele, and sing.

My favourite thing about Rashi has got to be the Rashi spirit. We may be a bit messy, but we always bring the energy. Unsurprisingly, my favourite Rashi memory was when we broke the stage at House Music, although there have been many more funny moments both with my Tutor Group and my very interesting, incredible Year 8 peer supports. Looking forward to making more amazing memories with you all.
