Get to know the new Szenes House Madrichim for 2021-2022

Why did you want to be a House Madrich?

Remy: I wanted to be a House Madrich ever since I first joined High School. I have always wanted to become a leader and give back to the community that has given so much to me, and this was my chance. I love engaging in House activities and always enjoyed the House spirit as well!
Matt: I have always loved participating in all the Inter-House events, from basketball and benchball, to music and trivia, and I have been really keen to help run and plan more events like these for the rest of High School! As well as that, I really love being part of Szenes House since Year 7 and want to create a lasting impact on the community and House spirit before I graduate.

What are you most looking forward to being a part of?

Remy: I am really looking forward to all of the events, but House Music is definitely something you cannot miss. The House spirit and incredible energy is an amazing experience whether you are on stage or in the audience, the ruach is unbelievable.
Matt: I am looking forward to all the Inter-House events and seeing our House spirit as we begin our journey to victory! I am especially excited for all the carnivals though and being able to see all of Szenes working together and having loads of fun.

If you could be the Principal of the School for a day, what would you do?

Remy: I would firstly take a couple of Turkish Delights from the Principal’s famous chocolate bowl, then proceed to send out videos of Michael Khedoori doing parkour tricks to the School and finish off by hanging a few yellow and purple banners around my office (just to let everyone know who my favourite House is).
Matt: I would ask the canteen to make Mac and Cheese Monday every day of week, so it never runs out!

What is your dream for Szenes 2021-2022?

Remy: My dream is to make our Szenes family more connected and embrace the feeling of belonging within our little yellow and purple community.
Matt: To win!… and have some fun along the way.

Thank you to the Szenes House Madrichim for 2020-2021

As the new Szenes House Madrichim, we would like to thank Jess Lowy and Lexi Joffe for the absolutely incredible job they have done over the past year. Despite the uncertainty regarding Coronavirus, they ran our House activities and carnivals with such amazing spirit and led us to great success! They were the heart of our Szenes family and we can only hope to achieve what they have accomplished. Both the House Madrichim and the Year 12 Szenes Tutor Group have achieved so much and their uplifting presence at both House events and assemblies will be missed. 

Lockdown tip of the week!

Make sure that you are going outside daily! Aim to be outside or put your face in the sun for at least 10-15 minutes each day. Vitamin D is so important. Not only does it keep you physically healthy as it helps regulate the amount of calcium and phosphate in your body, it is also so important for your mental health, as low amounts of vitamin D can be linked to higher levels of depression and anxiety. So take care of yourself, and get a little sun! 

Quotation of the week

“Do more than belong: PARTICIPATE. 
Do more than care: HELP. 
Do more than believe: PRACTISE. 
Do more than be fair: BE KIND. 
Do more than forgive: FORGET. 
Do more than dream: WORK”.
William Arthur Ward

Enjoy the weekend, stay safe and well
