The weeks that were…

It’s been another exciting couple of weeks in Szenes!

The Athletics Carnival took place on 4 June 2021, and it was such a great day! There was so much participation and House spirit from our Szenesians and the rest of High School, which was really nice to watch.

As this was our last ever school carnival, we would just like to say a huge thank you to everybody who took part. You made it such a special day that we will never forget. 

Special congratulations to Mariah Lewy (Year 10), Remy Waller (Year 11) and Toby Port (Year 12) for being awarded Age Champions! There were also lots of broken records, which speaks to the incredible amount of effort that went into the activities.

Grease is the word

The cast are busy preparing the the School production of Grease, which will take place next week. There are many Szenes students involved in the production including Mariah Carey and Remy Waller who are part of the main cast.

Break a leg, so they say, but not literally!

Book donation

The book Zionism by Mr Alex Ryvchin, Co-Chief Executive Office of the Council of Australian Jewry was distributed to the eldest sibling during our House Assembly on Wednesday.

Please contact tgreenhill@emanuelschool.nsw.edu.au if you did not receive a copy and would like one.

Leadership voting

A quick heads up that voting for leadership positions is approaching.

 Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Make sure that you are voting for somebody because of their skillset and attitude, and not your relationship with them.
  • Leadership is not only the responsibility of the future House madrichim – the entirety of the current Year 11 body will be supporting and leading Szenes House. Make sure to take the opportunity to get to know all of them before they become your leaders. (It will also help with your voting!)
  • The current Year 12s are all here to support you. If you ever need anything or have any questions, we are here to chat – not only about leadership!
