Virtual Reality First Aid Training

Last Thursday the Carramar  Year 5 and 6 students attended a first aid training program with St John WA. St John WA now provide first aid training using virtual reality. The program means students get the opportunity to experience first aid in a safe and virtual world. Students interact with virtual patients, learn how to provide assistance and call for help.

The students had a lot of fun while acquiring essential first aid skills.

The Power of Speech Competition 2022

On Saturday 10 September the annual Power of Speech competition was held at the Telethon Speech and Hearing centre in Wembley. Three of our students from St Stephen’s took part in the competition Jacob Lloyd, Eamon Doak and Kealan Doak. The competition involved choosing a topic to speak about, writing the speech and lots of practise in preparation. On the day of the competition each of our students stood up on large stage in front of two hundred people and some professional speakers (including Geoff Parry from Channel 7) to deliver their speeches, which was a huge achievement! Our students had an awesome outcome with Eamon and Kealan Doak both winning the trophy for best speaker in their category. Congratulations to all three students, you did a fantastic job!

Children’s University – 2022 Graduation

Dear CU families, the time is fast approaching to the 2022 CU Graduation at ECU in November.  Our graduation date will be in the evening of either Tuesday 29 November or Wednesday 30 November.  The date will be confirmed early next term, however it is suggested that we keep both dates free in our diaries.

The final date for accruing hours towards the 2022 graduation is the end of this term, Friday 23 September, however an update on hours achieved thus far will be sent to ECU next week.

As we approach this deadline, passport stamping sessions can get very busy.  I recommend coming and getting activities signed off as you complete them, rather than saving it all for the end.  I would hate for someone to miss out on graduation just because we didn’t have time to officially record the hours.  Passport stamping sessions are every Tuesday morning from 8.15am in the Primary Forum.

Looking forward to another wonderful graduation in November.

Night on the Green

Dear Parents

It is with great excitement that we invite our school community to the inaugural “Night on The Green” on Saturday 3 December from 4:30pm to 7:30pm. This parent led event is a fantastic opportunity for our community to come together and celebrate the end of our academic year and for our families to spend time together before we break up for the school holidays. Food trucks, silent disco, Christmas Market, animal farm, Santa’s Grotto, music,…. are some of the many activities that will be on offer on the night.

If any parents have a small business and would like to be involved, please contact Bronwyn (bronwyn.doak@yahoo.com) or Karen (hinder@internode.on.net ).

We are also looking for several volunteers to give a couple of hours of their time to help on the day. Karen and Bronwyn would also love to hear from you.

This is a wonderful event and we look forward to celebrating together with our families in December!

Term 3, Week 2

A word from our Head of Campus

I would personally like to extend my sincere gratitude to the whole community who have made my first official week at Carramar such a welcoming and positive experience. I look forward to the weeks and months ahead in which I will learn so much more about our school.

Whilst it has been only one week back for our students, our staff have been back for two. Our first week was filled with planning as well as professional and personal development during the days of our annual Staff Expo.

Last week we marked NAIDOC week in the Primary School with a number of classroom activities designed to celebrate and learn about those who were custodians of the land we live on for over 70 000 years. I acknowledge and give thanks here to Noongar elders, past present and emerging, for whom Lake Joondalup and it’s surrounds were a place of abundance and safety. It is a great privilege to lead a school that resides on that land, where no doubt many young people of the Noongar nation were educated in the stories and ways off their ancestors.

Thank you all once again and best wishes for Semester Two.

Bennet Andrews

Head of Campus
