      Guringai country, on whose land we are privileged to live.
                                                                                                      Page 1
        A philosophy professor stood before his class and had some items in 
          front of him. When class began, wordlessly he picked up a large 
           empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks, rocks 
                               about 2" in diameter. 

         He then asked the students if the jar was full.   They agreed that it 
         So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them 
             into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles, of course, 
                    rolled into the open areas between the rocks. 

         He then asked the students again if the jar was full.   They agreed it 

          The students laughed. The professor picked up a box of sand and 
         poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. 

           "Now," said the professor, "I want you to recognise that this is 
           your life. The rocks are the important things ‐ your family, your 
          partner, your health, your parents; anything that is so important 
             to you that if it were lost, you would be nearly destroyed.” 

          "The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your 
                                 house, your car.” 

                     "The sand is everything else. The small stuff.” 

            "If you put the sand into the jar first, there is no room for the 
           pebbles or the rocks. The same goes for your life. If you spend 
           all your energy and time on the small stuff, you will never have 
                    room for the things that are important to you.” 

           "Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. 
          Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take 
         partner out dancing. Talk to your parents. There will always be time 
                                 to go to work, clean 
               the house, give a dinner party or fix the garage door.” 

            "Take care of the rocks first ‐ the things that really matter. Set 
                        your priorities. The rest is just sand."

                                      The Working Bee
                        Last weekend 49 students, parents and school staff attended the final ‘working
                        bee’ for the year. It was a fantastic effort for a morning
                        that was very hot and humid, however all participants
                        worked like Trojans to complete the pathway in front of
                        ‘C Block’. It was incredibly satisfying to see so many
                        students taking up the challenge to become involved in
                        the school in such an atypical fashion.

                      A sense of community and the feeling of belonging can be easily understood
                      when you view many people involved in achieving the one outcome.
        Congratulations to all involved (see below) and
                       thank you for helping to make
                       Barrenjoey the ‘best it can be’ -
                       and a challenge to other
                       students to become involved by
                       sparing three hours of your
                       weekend at the next ‘working
                       bee’, sometime during Term 1

                       Before the end of the year I will be sending a number of letters home
                       including a summary of our achievements and plea for support.
                       Throughout 2010 we developed innovative programs in numeracy and
                       literacy, including an after school Mathematics extension program and
                       a targeted approach to students with learning needs. Currently
                       students are benefitting from a fully staffed Senior Study and
                       Homework Club, individual report interviews, new Merit award system,
                       Year 7 Drama classes and after school tutoring by qualified external
                       providers. In 2011 after school tutoring will be expanded, creative
                       writing classes will be implemented and Year 8 students will commence
                       creative and performing arts electives.

The physical facilities have also been further developed over the last couple of years with a
number of projects taking place. These include the refurbishment of the oval, library, canteen,
kitchens and senior study and the completion of a
purpose built ‘art shed’. In 2011 the infrastructure
will continue to improve with remodelled
staffrooms for the Mathematics and Creative &
Performing Arts faculties, resurfaced basketball
courts and refurbished Art rooms. Much of what
we do is extra-curricula and funded by us as a
community, that is by saving small amounts of
resources and careful distribution of fees and P&C
donations. Please help us to be as progressive as
possible by contributing to our school through fee
contributions and P&C donations; every little bit

                    Upcoming Event ….. Junior MADD Night

For all the people who witnessed our last MADD night held last term I’m sure you agree that it
was a spectacular evening. On that occasion the evening focussed on displaying the
amazing talents of our senior (mostly HSC) students. I can still remember the ‘buzz’ in the
Hall that night and the comment from one parent in particular who proudly noted “that they
                        would pay a lot of money to see quality performances like that”. Well
                        we know that at Barrenjoey our students are of that quality, so mark
                        this date in your diary and keep it free so you
                        can see what the juniors can do.

                        Friday 26th November will be the
                        Junior MADD night, starting at 6.00pm in
                         the Backstage Gallery where you will be
                         shocked and amazed at the quality of Visual
Arts, Photography and Design works that our junior students are
capable of. Then at 7.00pm in the Hall be enthralled by the talents of
junior musicians, dancers and dramatists as they thoroughly entertain
you. I guarantee you’ll walk away from the evening in awe of the
creative and performing arts at Barrenjoey and in disbelief that you were witnessing the works
of juniors. As a great car salesman will always tell you, “Just trust me.”

   Did you know that The Blue Whale is the largest animal to have ever lived on the
   Earth. Its tongue weighs as much as an elephant! Its heart is as big as a car and
   some of its blood vessels are wide enough for a person to swim through.

         type of fiction, in this case zombie fiction.  The cover, reproduced below is enough to turn anyone off.

                                             Week beginning Monday 15th November

Thank you to all the families who have supported the collection of Coles vouchers. Representatives
from all PCS schools attended Bilgola Public School for a photo and had the opportunity to talk to
Jeff McMullen. Jeff explained to the students the significance of the PCS efforts and how valuable
this will be to Katherine Community of Schools.

The PCS Robotics teams had a wonderful afternoon at Barrenjoey High School last Wednesday
participating in a pre tournament challenge for the upcoming FLL competition being held at
Macquarie University December 4.

Opportunities for Professional Learning have been plenty. The PCS Administration staff participated
in workshops delivered over the last two Thursday afternoons and many of our Primary and
Secondary staff have attended a workshop looking at NAPLAN results.

We have had yet another visit from Western Australian Principals. They are very interested in the
operation of our Community of Schools.

The Bee Bots have had such a wonderful time at Collaroy Plateau they are going to stay for
another two weeks, the Probots are at both Cromer and Wheeler Heights and the NXT’s are visiting
all three PCS high schools.

Have a lovely week!

                                  DUKE OF EDINBURGH

                                Term 4 has been busy for the Duke of Edinburgh award program.  Week 1 we ran the 
                                Silver Test Expedition at Glenbrook (Blue Mountains) also last week we ran the Gold 
                                Test Expedition at The Jagungal Wilderness Region (Kosciuszko NP). 
                                Both expeditions are amongst the most challenging of the walks that we undertake 
                                but in saying that all students and staff handled the conditions well. 

Silver Test (Glenbrook)  
This was the largest group we have taken on this walk from all 3 PCS schools.  
Over 30 students took part walking from Blaxland (Florabella Pass) to the 
Glenbrook NPWS Station. 
The walk has many interesting and challenging aspects including a steep climb in 
and out of each camp site notably climbing up Pisgah Rock, extremely thick 
vegetation (spiky bushes), an section of individual navigation and probably the 
best part of the walk are the swimming holes at each camp site. 
All the students are to be commended for their efforts and a special mention goes to Miss Peachman who handled 
her first expedition with grace and good humour! 
I hope all the Silver group will complete their trip reports and log books so they can start on their Gold Award ASAP! 
Gold Test Jagungal Wilderness Region (Kosciuszko NP) 
The 2010 Gold group was smallest but one of the most enjoyable groups we have ran at BHS. For this walk we were 
one member down with Nick S injuring his shoulder leaving us with 8 students. Zoe B, Megan D, Kirsten M, India W 
and Claire Mc from BHS and Kane, Ryan and Daniel from NSHS. 
We started  and finished our walk at the Round Mountain Fire Trail.  For the next 4 days we walked for approx 40‐
50kms through the Jagungal Wilderness Region with the highlights being a number of Alpine huts (Derschos, Grey 
Mares, Valentines) numerous river crossings, valentines’ falls, marshes, snow fights and climbing Mt Jagungal! 
A big thank you to Mr Gavin who has joined me on 5 of 6 walks this year without dedicated staff the award would 
not run. 
                                  I must say it has been a pleasure to take this 
                                  group all the way through their award and 
                                  they all can be very proud to have completed 
                                  all 6 Duke of Edinburgh Expeditions!
