Girls to the front
Unlike most recent elections, the Sydney University Greek Society (SUGS) has moved towards greater female representation.
The USU-affiliated club elected an all-female executive at its Annual General Meeting last week.
But, like most elections of recent times, the elected team couldn’t escape criticism based on their gender. Just moments after posting a congratulatory photo of the new executive to Facebook, a Facebook user commented beneath the picture: “Wow. No men. That can’t be healthy. It says there is no interest or commitment from the Greek males. After all, it is called a Society…”
The comments have since been removed, and were in fact replaced with congratulations.
“Strictly confidential” email about the mod Libs leaked to Honi
Honi has obtained an email from Edward McCann discussing the factional leadership of the moderate Liberals on campus.
The email contains an invitation to a “private dinner and strategy meeting”, as well as information about a change in factional leadership from Kerrod Gream to McCann.
McCann says, “I’m honoured to be taking over from Kerrod as the leader of the Moderates on campus and I will continue to rely on his counsel and experience.”
The email also confirms Honi’s previous reports that the moderate Liberals will be running Jacob Masina as their USU board candidate, though Masina told Honi he would be running as an independent. It further says Masina “will be the public face of our faction on campus and we need to do everything in our power to get him elected.”
The email was only sent to a “select few” out of “a pool of many”, and invitees were urged not to discuss the “strictly confidential” meeting with others. We’d like to thank the Mod Libs for extending the invitation to Honi. For any punters interested, the meeting will take place at 5:30 this evening at the Royal
Students lament theft of umbrellas
Several disgruntled USyd students have allegedly had their umbrellas stolen after leaving them outside Fisher Library on rainy days. Everyday, regular, highly relatable student Max Harper is just one of the many victims of this heinous crime.
“I was studying in Fisher, and came out to find my umbrella stolen,” he revealed to Honi.
Honi can confirm Harper has filed a police report, and believes more needs to be done to protect students from such acts of ideologic— sorry, meteorological — violence.
School disco was a great hit!
As always, the school disco was a fantastic night enjoyed by all. The K–2 segment of the evening went off without a hitch, and years 3–6 very much enjoyed Mr Cook’s rendition of the ‘Nutbush’. We’re also pleased to announce that $1351 was raised for the new Covered Outdoor Learning Area! Thanks to all parents who helped with the sausage sizzle and jelly stall.
