Gosford Police Station Mural Project
Two years ago, Chief Inspector Paul Nicholls approached the Photography department with an idea – a wall mural constructed of hundreds of photos of Gosford Police Station, telling the history of the station in pictorial form. Year 10, 11 and 12 Photography students were assigned the task and we set to work – then the dreaded COVID hit! Two years and two lockdowns later, our project is completed and has come to fruition. Many hours have been spent by students editing each photo, merging, layering and photoshopping the mural, which measures a very large 1.8 m x 5.0 m in area. The mural was then delivered to a company for production and installation, and we are proud to present photos from the official opening ceremony of the mural in situ. Congratulations go to the following students for their hard work and perseverance in contributing their share to the mural: Flynn McHale, Will Turton, Nathan Collis, Andre Sirio, Conor Kelly, Will Clarke, Oliver Wagemaker. These boys spent hours editing and proofing photos, erasing and changing backgrounds to make the mural as spectacular as it is. It is a credit to the boys and their perseverance, work ethic and professionalism. What a wonderful way to link our local Police representatives with a sense of community and pride – well done, Eddies! [foogallery id="38655"]

Waste Audit Report – Environment Portfolio
On 27 July the College Environment Portfolio participated in a waste audit. The idea came from a series of webinar sessions Take 3 for the Sea ran three years ago and it was great to see it finally come to fruition. There were three boys: Owen Bradstreet, Wilheim Hieber and Fletcher Moore who participated in these webinars three years ago and were there on the day to see through their initiative. Owen and Wilheim ran the event which included students from each year group from 7-12. The students gathered one bin from each of the main areas of the school and then grouped the rubbish from that bin into separate sections on a big tarp in the school quadrangle. This was great, as the whole school got to see what we were doing and it was very interesting listening to the explanations and conversations between students in the portfolio and other students not in the portfolio. The rubbish, as you can see in the photos, was divided up into foods that could be still eaten (left over sandwiches fruit etc), compostable rubbish (apple cores, citrus peels etc), recyclable rubbish (paper, card board etc), soft plastic recyclables (glad wrap, chip packets etc) and then finally the waste that could not be recycled or composted. It was amazing to see that of all the piles, the non recyclable rubbish pile was by far the lowest with only a few small objects that could not be recycled.  This showed that if the school was able to introduce all of the above recycling options or students were to come trash free and recycle/compost the other items at home, we could potentially fill all of the College's rubbish into one red bin. I look forward to watching the prefects present this to the school body and look at what initiatives can be introduced as a result. Well done to all those students who participated! Your passion and drive to make a change will make a difference. [foogallery id="38558"]

Year 7 Goal Setting
The students in Mr English’s Core class completed some goal setting at the start of the term that included creating a series of “I WILL” statements. The “I WILL” statements were inspired by the work of 1978 Surfing World Champion, Shaun Tomson who works with schools, charities and multi nationals to encourage all of us to believe in ourselves, face life’s challenges and commit to positive values. During the process of putting the “I WILL” statements together, the boys were lucky to be in communication with Shaun who shared what it means to be creative, courageous and determined. The artwork you see with the “I WILL” statements was created by Shaun and his team who put together the work, free of charge for the boys to share and have as a class display.
