Welcome to term two! The term where everything REALLY starts happening here at
Burnside. Just finished up was the famous stage challenge with the Raw group taking
out the competition and the also winning the Spirit award!! Congratulations to all of
you juniors that were involved and the senior leaders who lead them to victory! Not
only did the junior group come out with a win but our open team came second! This
is the first time open has placed in two years. They also took out the spirit award as
well while hanging out with all of the primary schools that were at the arena for their
own competition. Congrats and well done to everyone in both teams keeping the
Burnside reputation of excellent spirit alive!
Winter sports are also in full swing this term with games starting either the first week
back or during the term one holidays. The boys’ rugby team has been doing pretty
well in their first few games sitting second on the leaderboard following St Andrew’s
College. Another sport doing well so far is our girls hockey team, playing off for third
and fourth in the mini Porritt Cup championship held at the start of the season.
Although many seniors found themselves swamped with internals come the first two
weeks back it seem to calmed down a bit in the last week or so. However in saying
that, the next flood of internals are just around the corner so be prepared!
We had they’re cross country recently and although it was changed to optional for the
entire school there were plenty of juniors out running during the first two periods.
Congratulations to all those who ran and made it to the finish time through the cold.
Also a good luck to all of those participating in the junior dance showcase which is
happening next month, all dance students in year 9 and 10 take part and put on a
spectacular show for the their parents and friends to watch.
Last but definitely not least is the announcement of the year 12 formal theme…The
Midnight Magic Ball! The magical night is 6th June so save that date year 12s!
Tickets go on sale May 18th so get in quick before they run out! Don’t miss out such
an amazing night with your friends.
Have a good term from you coeditors
