From Head of Green House, Scott Coleman
As Term 2 draws to a close I find myself reflecting on how lucky I am to be looking forward to Term 3 with the young men of Green House. As a staff group we are blessed to be able to work with respectful young men who have a desire to learn. It is also great to be able to work in leading educational facilities and for the young men of Waverley to be able to learn in these spaces provided to them. It is very pleasing to see the students making the most of the opportunities at Waverley College in Term 2 and I am looking forward to a productive and positive second semester.
5 a side football competition – Congratulations to all our boys involved in the five a side football competition. Our senior boys came second and our junior boys came sixth. All students should be congratulated for their engagement in the event.
The Inter-House Athletics Carnival took place during the last week of term. Congratulations to all the boys that participated in the event. It was so great to see so many young students participating actively in the events of the day, in particular, our Year 5 – 9 students.
In addition to the events above, Green House held our Term 2 assemblies at the Junior School this term. This was a huge success thanks to Junior School staff Mr Stephen Ghattas and Ms Gabrielle Bransby. Our Junior School students were wonderful in their support this term and we thank them for welcoming us to the Junior School throughout the term.
The 109th May Day procession took place in May this term. Despite most students not having to attend due to the inclement weather I would like to thank all Green students and parents that did take part in this special occasion.
I would like to thank again our prefects for their contributions to Green House again this term, even as their assessment and study expectations continue to grow.
The following students received Head of College Awards this term, an achievement that requires 15 Merit awards and 3 Gold awards. These students exemplify consistent effort in the classroom, ongoing excellent behaviour and go above and beyond what is expected of them on a regular basis. It is wonderful to see students achieve so well. Congratulations to the following students:
Finn Harley Whitney

Finally, I would like to thank all teachers in Green House for their continued support this year. The time and effort provided by our mentors each morning is one of the many positive aspects of belonging to Green House.
To the Green community, I wish you all an enjoyable, safe and restful break. To those travelling on the The Timor-Leste Immersion or the Red Earth Immersion, I wish you a wonderful trip. l look forward to seeing all Green House students back next term for the second half of 2019.
