School Regulations - Haircuts

School Regulations - Haircuts

High standards of dress and appearance are part of our overall commitment to excellence in everything we do. Our students have an excellent reputation in the community for the way that they wear their uniform and I am keen to ensure that we maintain this.

Examination Period Student Free Day

Middle School

In order to maintain this high standard, students are reminded to observe the following School rules in relation to haircuts, as outlined in the Student Diary (Page 16):

Projec10

“Haircuts should be smart and moderate. Extremes of styles are not permitted. Hair must not touch the collar, nor be styled in such a way that it is capable, at any time, of falling forwards towards the eyes or face. Novelty styles, including undercuts of any kind are not permitted, nor may hair be shaved in part or whole. No boy is permitted to gel or dye his hair, nor use any spray or accessory to artificially hold it in place. Sideburns, irrespective of length, are not permitted. It is to be noted that, in matters of hairstyle, the School remains the final arbitrator of what constitutes an acceptable haircut”.

From next week, students who come to school with unacceptable haircuts may be sent home until they are able to remedy the matter. I do thank all parents in advance for their support in ensuring that their son’s appearance is neat, tidy and appropriate at all times.

Examination Period I would like to congratulate our Year 11 and 12 students on the manner with which they approached the examination and SAC period. Yesterday’s GAT also ran smoothly. Year 11 and 12 classes now resume as normal and I wish our Year 9 and 10 boys all the best as they now enter their examination period.

Student Free Day A reminder that Monday 24 June is a Student Free Day in both Middle and Senior School, as teachers complete examination marking and end-of-semester reports. Semester 2 classes will commence on Tuesday 25 June 2019. Rob French, Acting Headmaster

Middle School House Sport Today saw the recommencement of House Sport, where boys took part in Dodgeball and Vortex. Whilst chilly, it was great to see a sea of colour flooding our picturesque grounds.

Yesterday we welcomed visitors from Fintona Girls’ School and Camberwell Girls Grammar School for the highly anticipated Projec10. This was the introductory planning day where the foundation for the program was established. During the morning session, the philosophy and philanthropic elements were outlined, groups were allocated and students from all Schools had the chance to meet each other. Groups will now go away to plan some initiatives ahead of the second planning day to consolidate their creative and entrepreneurial concepts. Knowing this group, I am excited to see what they come up with.

Something Special - An Exhibition Of Works By Middle School Artists This semester all Middle School artists have explored, developed and resolved a series of two and three dimensional artworks that respond to the idea or concept of ‘Something Special’. Artists were asked to reflect upon imagery, subject matter or personal experiences that are special to them and, to also contribute a photograph of themselves with something special for inclusion in the collaborative Photographic Portrait Collage. The results were incredible.

Footy Day 28 June Let’s celebrate half-time on the last day of Term by wearing team colours, playing kick-to-kick and having a treat! Boys can wear sports uniform to and from School and bring their team footy gear (jumper, beanie, cap, scarf or favourite soccer or basketball team top) to be worn at lunchtime. Friends of Norge will provide a sausage sizzle, cupcakes and fruit juice for lunch. Senior School boys from the First XVIII will join us for lunch and then accompany the boys over to the JTO for football drills and skills instead of the normal lunch play session. A letter and sausage sizzle order form will go home in your son’s Diary soon. This is a wonderful way to finish the Term and the half-way mark of the year.

The Amazing Adventures of Superstan Stanley Marvel may be the clumsiest clot in Megaville, but with a dose of secret formula and a pair of fantastic elastic anti-gravity underpants, Stanley takes to the skies as the greatest Superhero the world has ever known. Is it a bird, is it a plane? No, it’s Superstan - a caped crusader fighting for truth, freedom and justice with his super powers, super tights and the strength to open a really tricky jar of pickles! The boys in Years 3, 4 and 5 are working hard developing their characters in preparation for the Junior School musical production The Amazing Adventures of Superstan. This production is a wonderful introduction to live theatre for our upper primary students. In rehearsal, the boys are enjoying learning about stagecraft as the show comes together with storyline, song, set, lighting, sound, costumes…and your applause. This humorous story will be staged in the Middleton Theatre in the last week of this Term. Performance dates are: Tuesday 25 June 1.00pm (Matinee Performance) Wednesday 26 June 7.00pm Thursday 27 June 7.00pm Book now for this ‘not to be missed’ show and make it a sell-out season for our stars of the future. Tickets may be purchased through Trybookings www.trybooking.com/BDFYJ. Be sure to book early! Helen Thomas, Assistant Director of Music, Junior School

Sport

This weekend is the final week of Sport fixtures for the Term for most sports. Baseball continues beyond this weekend, therefore baseball students and families should liaise with the teacher in charge of their team. Sport training has also finished, although Cross Country and some other teams will continue to train. Training for all teams and students recommences in Term 3 from Tuesday 16 July. The final three rounds of AGSV Sport are fixtured for the first three weeks of Term 3. Following that, the Spring season commences. Well done to Declan Woolf (Year 12), who represented Venus Beach Surf Life Saving Club in the Victorian Surf Life Saving Championships in Warrnambool over the long weekend. Whilst he and his team did not medal, Declan was named as Venus Bay Club Champion for his age group and equal champion in the Open Division. Is your son looking to keep fit in the lead up to and over the holidays, or wanting to improve his running technique? Elitewellbeing are continuing to host running sessions at the KAO on Monday and Friday mornings from 6.45am to 8.15am during Week 9 and on Friday only in Week 10.

If you have any concerns or questions regarding Sport, please contact the staff member in charge of your son’s team or the Director of Sport at dos@cgs.vic.edu.au.
