Good evening staff and students, parents and mentors. I stand before you this evening to outline this yearÐ²Ð‚™s greatest and so great achievements. Before I get on with the boring bits, IÐ²Ð‚™d like to do a bit of reminiscing. And a though explanation of college life to unacquainted parents.
Year 7. Best year level if there ever was one! I still remember my first day of school, teachers threatening to torture us mentally if we did not obey their every command. Spending a two full consecutive graphics lessons one the many shade and variation of the humble pencil. Smacking each other with metal rules in metalwork or even taking pot shots at the bins (there were a few walks of shames and near misses with teachers). Then before you knew it the year was over.
Year 8.A new year and a new school community issue. Believe it or not the new year had brought with it the lively debate of whether or not chess was a sport! Good times, good times. A step up in the college ranks ment a step up in the workload. Yep, no more easy nights or getting away with un finished work. With year 8 also came the era of detentions. Teachers dishing out detentions as fast as they could photocopy the cursed slips. Fortunately I escaped this crack down unscaved. Towards the 3rd quarter of the year, USB keys reached epidemic proportions. Malicious programs spread like wild fire. Games could now be accessed directly from USB keys and quickly removed if under inspection. And then like the previous year and eventful 2006 came to an end.
Year 9. Most of us remembered it to be prank year. Students pushing teachers and testing out limits. As a result, mass detentions were not uncommon. There were even a few expulsions concerning a certain vegemite incident, but another story. And for many the first exams in their lives. Fear fuelled study and subsequent results were surprising as the year average level reached a college record of 88%. With year nine had also come a new era that had the whole community swept up.
This year as the rising of the band Fall out Boy and the birth of the EMO. This had a major influence one peoples hair cuts as they seemed to have grown 500% during the semester some style were so stiff the you could lob a ball at their heads and it would just bounce of the hair like a brick wall. Time passed quickly and before many of us knew it the second set of exams had descended on us. Sadly many of us werenÐ²Ð‚™t very prepared and suffered bad results, there even was an incident of cheating but that was dealt with. Then as soon as they came the exams were over. More importantly, the summer holidays in reach.
Year 10. It would seem that the teahers were out to get us with everything they had from heavy artillery such as mass 1000 word essays to mind numbing assaults of regular work sheets and surprise tests. I was not uncommon for student to feel extreme hatred towards the evil creatures know as teachers. I must say, gaming consoles and computer were abandoned totally for the first time as every waking hour was dedicated to exam study and every other hour spent sleeping. The library became a well known dwelling as the comfy chair and relative silence allow some very much needed rest for those who were too busy to fit sleep into their already full life. It became a frequent sight as so-called friends practised their texta skills on their slumbering comrades. Fortunately, whiteboard markers were the weapon of choice. Semester 2 blitzed by and exams were no brainers.
Year 11. After the daunting subject selections we all thought that was
