So today, unit 3 & 4 subject results came out, and it appears I got a 46 for Mathematical Methods (CAS). That’s pretty good, although to be honest, I was expecting slightly higher – maybe my working out for the exams wasn’t stringent enough – who knows.
On another note, I’ve finally had to return that trophy I got for the Chang Maths Award to the school (who should really consider cleaning it). I wonder who’s going to win it this year. It looks like I’m getting a couple of awards this Presentation Night, although I’m not really sure what ‘Special Academic Award’ means – hopefully something good.
Also, being a Music Captain is pretty fun. We had a meeting with all the music leaders last Thursday, and that went pretty well. Hopefully 2015 will be a good year in the music department.Comments: none yet | Filed under: school | Tagged: chang maths award, maths methods, music captain, presentation night

So tonight was Presentation Night and overall, I think it went pretty well. Things went mostly to plan, and I didn’t make any mistakes in my cello playing (a welcome change from the norm). The first couple of pieces were quite good; Celebration and Song (Robert Sheldon) was a success, as was the National Anthem (it’s hard for someone to boo that anyway) and Edge of Glory (Lady Gaga) was well received.
Cosmic Girl, however, despite being the most fun to play, was a little shaky… The start wasn’t in time and it ended up sounding quite muddy. Oh well, there’s always something.Comments: none yet | Filed under: school | Tagged: kldys, maths chang award, presentation night

So this week I’ve been rehearsing for the school Presentation Night. Concert Strings has one performance alongside the Latin Jazz Ensemble (in which we can’t really be heard, annoyingly) and three pieces (though one is Advance Australia Fair) as part of the GWSC Orchestra. The pieces are pretty good, especially the one we’re playing with the Latin Jazz Ensemble, thanks to some good synth samples (and bubbly noises) on the keyboard and an electronic drum kit. (Although it still doesn’t change the fact that it’s damn hard to hear us.)
Apparently, I’m getting three awards this year on Presentation Night; one Academic Excellence, one KLDYS program award and one maths related one (maths something-or-rather) which I’m not too sure about. Ms Alway called to tell me there’d been a glitch and the letter I’d been sent said I’d won only the Academic Excellence award and the other two had been sent to the wrong Jason. Some poor person received a letter saying that they’d won two awards only to be informed it was a mistake.
The spam comments are commencing their flow into the website… Seemed a little quiet lately. Things are returning to normal.Comments: none yet | Filed under: school | Tagged: awards, GWSC, kldys, presentation night, strings
