Dear Parents and Carers

The Principal, Mr Graham Leddie, will be on leave for likely the next two weeks. Unfortunately, Graham will undergo back surgery this Saturday morning. We wish him all the best with the surgery and a speedy recovery. Please direct any queries or issues to myself and I will be happy to respond as quickly as possible.

2022 Upstander Lunch With David Leser

On Thursday, students identified as ‘upstanders’ in the 2022 Wellbeing Survey, along with members of the SRC and Prefect groups, attended a special lunch with special guest, David Leser.

David Leser is an award-winning feature writer who has worked for The Australian, The Sydney Morning Herald, HQ, The Bulletin, Good Weekend, The Australian Women’s Weekly, Vanity Fair, Newsweek and The Daily Beast

He is a four-times Walkley finalist and Walkley winner for feature writing for ‘Who’s Afraid of Alan Jones? He has also won three Magazine Publishers Association awards.

In 2018, the Good Weekend cover story by David Leser – ‘Women, Men and the Whole Damn Thing’ – had an unprecedented response from readers both in Australia and around the world. The public reaction to the article was extraordinary, and included hundreds of personal messages urging David to expand his story.

Former College Captain and member of the PDHPE staff, Lachlan Drew Morris, critiqued David’s book before David presented to the 80 students in attendance. Students were then encouraged to ask their own questions about toxic male masculinity and gender equality, in an insightful Q&A session.
