Biddle Boarding House News

Ashley Crook |  Biddle Assistant Housemaster

Dear Biddle Community,

Well the boys have progressed into Term 3 with much gusto and are clearly working hard. There are exams looming in most subjects, which necessitates hard work during prep/homework time in the evenings. I have said it before yet the Senior boys’ strong work ethic is great for the other boys to model for future years. Our Year 12 boys, Hugh, Harry, Scott, Josh, Sandy, Wayne, Andrew, Liam, Cormac, and Jeff are fine young men and the experiences that they have and are continuing to learn as a Senior Boarder will serve them well in future years.

The Biddle active wear has arrived for the new boys and they look great in the bright Biddle colours of green, red and yellow. No-one will miss a Biddle boy during the athletics carnival in a couple of weeks. Thanks Zac Sezer, Year 11, (below) for the recent modeling shot!

This week sees the whole school assembly in celebration of the boys academic successes. It is with great pride that I can name the Biddle boys who achieved a place on the “Primus Octoginta” and for a select few, on the TSS Dean’s List for this Semester.

The Primus Octoginta is the Top 80 students in each year level across all subject areas and to qualify for the Dean’s List a student must receive 6 A’s and or Top 20 Primus Octoginta in Year 7, 8 & 9, 5 A’s and or Top 20 Primus Octointa and 4 A’s and or Top 20 Primus Octoginta.

Biddle House are currently positioned 4th in the overall House rankings and the boys are pumped up for a big day! During Health and PE lessons there has been Athletic coaching and testing which will serve the boys well in their events.

Nick and I wish you well and once again, congratulations to the Biddle boys listed above.
