School Motto[edit]

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the school motto (nil nisi bonum) mean "No one can speak ill of the dead"?

"Nil nisi bonum" is often used as abbreviation for "de mortuis nil nisi bonum", however alone it seems that the correct translation is "simply the best", see, e.g., the following links: [1], [2]. --Cyfal (talk) 16:11, 12 October 2009 (UTC)

Technically, the school motto means "nothing but the best". This is how the school translantes it. --Diddy29 (talk) 23:51, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

Architecture[edit]

The following quote appears incorrect: "The school's Buildings were constructed according to the hilly terrain of the area, so that there are no more than two levels at any single point." Unless things have substantially changed since I attended in 1994 I believe the maximum number of floors at any one point was 3 (from the 4th to the 2nd at the corner of the steps between levels 2 and 3.

It would also be good to add a section about the construction of the sports hall/theatre sometime around 1990 as it significantly added to the ability of the school to perform annual dramas with performances spanning about a week each (e.g. Barnum, Pirates of Penzance, Superman).

Updates[edit]

Hello guys; just a quick thought for anyone who wishes to do it; this page should be linked from an appropriate section on the Pennant Hills page. Secondly, in the first paragraph, "It recently celebrated its 40th anniversary." could be updated so that the statement doesn't age -- in a few years, it'll be obviously dated. Something better might be "The school celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2006".. Skittled 05:46, 27 September 2006 (UTC)


[this bit edited by diddy29]. I just added some stuff about the portables, and a section of Staff. I thought it would be good to add the staff section as it seems important. Feel free to add or edit this section. I didn't put a full staff list on there as I felt it would be a breach of privacy, although I think putting the executive and year advisors was appropriate. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Diddy29 (talkcontribs) 08:41, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
