Year 11 Camp

The goal of the Year 11 camp is to give students the opportunity to experience a range of activities that challenged their way of thinking about themselves, our school, our community, our faith and the world around us.

Each year this camp has been the catalyst of some form of change in a majority of students’ lives.  Some changes might be subtle.  Minor tweaks and adjustments of a student’s perspective or attitude towards themselves and others.

The camp prepares students for success in their final years of schooling.

Glowing Results

The Y12 Biology ATAR students have had some glowing results! They inserted a gene from a jelly fish and inserted them into E.coli using transgenics to express the GFP to make them GLOW, well done on becoming genetic engineers!!

Year 7 Service Learning Excursion

These wonderful Year 7 students participated in a Service Learning experience at the Heathridge Salvation Army Op Shop today.

They were busy helping the staff sort clothes, build displays, spruce up the consultation rooms with decorations, serve food and drinks to those in need and even join in a community dance session!

They did an outstanding job and we are very proud of them all.

Something smells fishy…

The Year 11 Marine and Maritime Studies students spent some time at the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) – Fisheries office at Hillarys Boat Harbour to learn about overfishing, fisheries management and the science involved. The students were able to dissect a fish, determine its sex and extract the otoliths. It was a great opportunity for the students to get a taste (and smell!) of what fisheries scientists actually do to ensure there will be fish for the future.

Service Learning with C1

On Friday, students from C1 homeroom braved the rain and walked to the Hepburn Heights Conservation Area to help The Friends of Hepburn & Pinnaroo Bushland with their annual native shrub planting.  City of Joondalup and Friends group representatives spoke to the students about the importance of urban bushland areas to preserve native flora and fauna, and how voluntary groups play a vital role in protecting and rehabilitating the bushland and conserving biodiversity. They then joined forces in planting around 200 seedlings.  Students hope to return later in the year to check on the progress of their plants.
