An average day
(Year 10, 2013)
Everyday there is something to look forward to. I know for my friends and I, we always look forward to our Japanese and basketball classes especially on a Tuesday when we have them consecutively.
Basketball class is great fun because you are with all your friends and ultimately you get to practice playing basketball. There are always more opportunities to train at the school either before or after school to push you that little more.
Japanese class after basketball is a great way to end a day of hard work because the native Japanese teacher assistants that help our teacher are always really friendly and helpful.
After school we have SRC, this is the student representative council. We have meetings to organise fundraising events, whole school events and year group socials and dances. SRC is a great way to develop your leadership skills and is a stepping stone to other leadership roles throughout the college. This is just one school day which is filled with fun.

Life as a student never seems easy, but the thing is sometimes you get the opportunity to participate in the things you love, and here at St Norbert College I can.
At school I am known as the girl that was singing at that concert, or the girl who played the Queen in the College Production and the ballerina at Dance Night. I get to be the person I want to be and have the opportunity to show my talents and express my feelings in ways I never expected I’d be able to while in school.
I enjoy performing because I can affect others and perhaps inspire them to be creative and imaginative, because you can do, and be anything you want too. I’ve learnt that you just have to work for it.
Yeah, life as a student isn't easy, but you can have a lot of fun if you’re given an opportunity and you join in.
During our time at St Norbert College we have been fortunate to participate in numerous co-curricular programs. It was through one of these programs that we were given a great opportunity. Our Dance teacher, Mrs Borrello, gave us the chance to develop and lead a new initiative at the school and the Canons Hip Hop Crew was created in 2013.
The creation of the Hip Hop crew has inspired us to do more through our dance. We are passionate about dance and through dedication and hard work we have been able to inspire other students to get involved. It is so rewarding to lead other students into the world of Urban dancing and help teach them this incredible dance style. It’s also very satisfying to see how the Hip Hop crew has developed into a very close group.
We thank the College from the bottom of our hearts, especially Mrs Borrello for this amazing opportunity. At St Norbert College we have definitely been given the best experiences and the lessons we have learnt we will positively carry into the real world.
