AWESOME AUTHOR


Author Kate McCaffrey dropped by recently to give Year 10, 11 and 12 students an insight into the world of publishing. Kate is the author of five young adult novels which regularly feature in English studies. Students were left inspired after listening to Kate’s insights into how to construct meaningful and targeted creative compositions.

 

HAVE SUM FUN

On Friday night, Carramar Secondary students represented St Stephen’s School at Have Sum Fun, an Interschool Maths Competition. Students had to work as a team to problem solve and answer as many questions as they could in a certain time limit. While the teams didn’t come away with the win, it’s safe to say they certainly had fun and learned a lot too!

CRICKET CHAMP 


Carramar Cricket Captain Rajit Bose (Year 12) recently solely represented St Stephen’s School in the ACC Cricket Team, after being chosen by WACA selectors to compete. At Friday’s Interschool match, Rajit’s team were victorious after he took an impressive three wickets for his team. Congratulations!

“My favourite thing about cricket is that it’s a team game which I enjoy,” Rajit said.
“There has been many successes I have been able to achieve this year such as being first in the state.”
