As part of their VET Induction Day, Year 11 and 12 Duncraig and Carramar students were joined by past St Stephen’s School students who discussed the benefits of learning through VET. Patrick Middleton, AKA DJ Middy and Mrs Tara Roberts, who is now a teacher at Carramar Kindy, spoke to students about how their VET experience set them on amazing career paths.
Our Carramar Secondary students regularly visit UnitingCare West Community Options, a centre for adults living with disability. In their most recent visit, students used their woodwork skills to assist the Men in Sheds project. Students helped clients prepare and cook lunch and shared a meal with them.
Our students shine during each visit as they use their skills to help a worthy cause and get to know the members of our wider community.
The St Stephen’s School community is at the heart of everything we do. We would love to welcome more people like you into our School so we have created a new Thank You initiative where currently enrolled families can receive a $500 Coles Myer voucher* for referring a friend to St Stephen’s School. It is our way to say Thank You for spreading the good word. Contact your School reception or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Note: *Vouchers will be provided upon successful enrolment of the referred student and are valid from the referral initiative launch date – November 23, 2017. They are not retrospective. One voucher per new family referred. Alumnus eligible for a $200 referral voucher.
There were two words on everyone’s lips this week…….
Over 100 students across both campuses auditioned to be a part of next year’s musical, Grease! Our Drama teachers have been blown away by the sheer talent of our students. This will undoubtedly make for a slick production in 2018.
With the increased reliance on devices, it is more important than ever for us to offer charging amenities for our students. Devices like laptops, iPads and phones have become important educational tools that facilitate a productive learning environment. As the popularity of such devices continues to grow, keeping a device charged can be an issue. A dead battery limits student productivity.
The Library has installed a Charging Station with a multitude of different chargers. Charging stations are fixed units that feature separate locking compartments where a student can leave their device to charge safely.
It’s safe to say our students are immersing themselves in India’s rich culture on the ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ India Service Tour. On day four at Woodstock students spent the morning painting the new library at Kaplani Village School before setting off on an Indian food safari to the town of Mussoorie.

Duncraig and Carramar teacher Dr Mark Fielding has received a scholarship to further his professional development and enhance the education sector. Dr Fielding, Director of Global Programs at St Stephen’s School, was awarded one of six national $5000 scholarships by NGS Super. The awards help teachers, support and management staff of non government schools to pursue their professional goals and make an impact on the wider education sector. Dr Fielding was awarded the scholarship to further enhance St Stephen’s School’s partnership with two indigenous schools – Yiyili and Purnululu Aboriginal Schools – as part of its commitment to building education opportunities and reconciliation in the East Kimberly region. “Our goal was to establish permanent and meaningful partnerships with Yiyili and Purnululu Schools that were mutually beneficial to all involved,” Dr Fielding said.
