Romeo and Juliet

‘Romeo and Juliet’- A Poem

By Bellanna Jenkins

 

Hating is like love, and loving is like hate      

Both are the same and yet they are divergent.  

Rivals that are ruled by hands of fate                        

Forcing those that feel to become urgent              

 

In their quest to find balance in peace                      

Two people trapped spinning around and               

around. They face fate in hope to cease                  

Literature

Year 12 Literature- Literature Review

 A Glimpse into the Past Through the Future

By Michaela Parkinson

The year is 1968, Philip K. Dick has just released his novel, ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?’ and readers are entranced with a view of the future. 

Philip K. Dick’s novel proposed, at the time, radical ideas of a future suffering the aftermath of a nuclear war with off-planet colonies and androids that feel empathy, or at least mimic it to a degree that it appears they do. 

Whittlesea Secondary College Debating Team

The Whittlesea Secondary College Debating Team went to Loyola College on Monday 18th April to compete against Parade College in the second round of debates. The topic for the debate was:

‘That professional sports should have separate leagues that permit the use of performance enhancing drugs’.

Athletics Carnival
The Athletics Carnival was held at the Meadowglen International Athletics Stadium last Tuesday. All field and track events were available for students to compete in on the day.
 
After a drizzly start the sun came out and we had a healthy amount of competition on the day across all year levels. Highlights were the inaugural "dress up 50m dash" in which Zac Rizzotto took the chocolate prize for running in his "death clown" outfit. We also had a large amount of costumes from our fabulous year 12 cohort.

GAME 1:                 Whittlesea 1/67                defeated                Lalor North 8/23

GAME 2:                 Whittlesea 36                   defeated by          Epping 5/46

 

Tennis

Wednesday 9 March saw Year 7 students Pj Mountney, Jack Taylor, Ethan Robertson, Riley Reece and George Ianakis take part in the interschool tennis competition with Epping, Mill Park, Hazel Glen and Lalor. Their first game against Mill Park was a well fought battle by the boys, unfortunately they weren’t able to cross the line, going down by 2 points. In the second round against Mill Park they faced tough competition and were unable to progress to the next round.

Year 7 Barbeque

Just a friendly reminder to our Year 7 families that our BBQ evening on Monday the 21st of March will be held in the VCE centre from 6.30pm-8:00pm. We look forward to celebrating student achievements, reflections of camp and a night of awards.
