Over the past few years our Toorak College School Prefects have been presenting at School Assembly about adherence to uniform requirements. This year’s presentation was a stand out. You’ve gotta love it when the Head Girl and Deputy Head Girl (Tilly and Sarah) take some creative licence to Iggy Azelea’s ‘Fancy’ and deliver a message about school uniform that had every students’ attention. It had mine too. I love it when I see these girls demonstrate their talent and creativity in such an entertaining fashion. I love it even more that the school has posted it on our YouTube channel and it’s had over 1400 views to date. Watch and share it around. 🙂
Highlight of my week: Having Rolfe Kolbe from Newington College visit me on Wednesday at school so we could finally meet face to face and chew the fat. You were a breath of fresh air Rolfe; talking to a like mind always injects me with the energy I need to forge on.
Second highlight of my week: A group of students from my class who performed their Spoken Word poem today.
Blew. my. mind.
Hoping to film these next week when all groups share them publicly at the Book Week Poetry Slam event we are holding at school and then share them here. The commitment to the task the groups are demonstrating has been one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve had this year.
Lowlight of the week: Being sick with a shocking head cold Monday and Tuesday.
Second lowlight of the week: Hearing news of the rumbling Bardarbunga volcano in Iceland that remains poised to erupt according to news sources. If it does, it’s likely that air travel to Europe will be off limits. Given that my family and I are due to board a plane to Europe a week or so from now, I’m feeling pretty edgy about this.
Ah well, you take life as it comes. What will be, will be. I do know that tomorrow will be 21 glorious degrees here in Melbourne. Blue skies and warm rays always make me smile. Have a great weekend. May the sun shine on you. 🙂

I find your students’ video on school uniform dress code very entertaining. They found a great way to really get the dress code regulations across to other students, in using a popular song as of today. I found it very interesting and meaningful. I do hope you and your family have safe travels to and from Europe. Hopefully no volcano eruptions happen anytime soon.
