Ride For A Reason

On Thursday 15 March Carramar Campus held our 10th annual Ride For A Reason.

80 students, 18 parents and 15 staff left SSS oval at 7:30 in the morning for a 10km, 20km or 40km ride around Lake Joondalup to raise money for charity. This year we were able to donate $800 to Bali Life Foundation.

Over the past 10 years we have had 1200 riders raise over $12,000 and have covered over a staggering 30,000km – that is 5 return trips to Melbourne or three quarters of the way around the earth!!!!!  We have made donations to Raw Impact Cambodia, World Bicycle Relief, Uniting Care West, Tranby House for the homeless, Food Rescue and Bali Life Foundation.

A HUGE thank you to all the riders and volunteers who helped out.

HARMONY DAY 2018

St Stephen’s School embraced our multicultural community  as we recognised Harmony Day together. Carramar Year 8 students raised awareness among their peers, selling Harmony Day pins and badges at recess and lunch. There were also many activities throughout classrooms giving students the opportunity to reflect on and discuss the importance of multiculturalism in society.

Hack for Harmony

Last week, 6 of our gifted and talented students attended Hack for Harmony at HBF Arena hosted by City of Joondalup. The task for the day was to develop an online solution for Joondalup City to attract more international students to the city. Our team won an award for their 60 second pitch on the business idea 5to9 –  Connecting students with work in Joondalup.

Their business idea 5to9 aims to make it easy for local businesses to access the international student workforce and for students to find casual work in the area.

A big congratulations to the team consisting of Tom Cordell, Cameron Kiss, Shayan Hirani, Abigail Legge, Falgun Batavia and Shayan Hirani.
