St Stephen’s Alumni Zach Tholen has quickly gained confidence as a chef after leaving School to pursue his training at TAFE in 2016. He recently took the time to visit our Carramar Year 11 Hospitality Class to cook his scallop and sweet potato dish, while passing on a few tips and tricks of the trade. Thanks for visiting, Zach!

School students will swap their school bags for sleeping bags later this year for the annual Anglicare School Sleep Out. Although St Stephen’s isn’t part of the Anglican Schools Commission, Anglicare were impressed by our commitment to giving back through our Service Learning arm that they extended the invitation for our community to experience sleeping rough for one night to see how the more than 9000 West Australians who are homeless live. If you’re interested in forming or joining a St Stephen’s School team, go to www.anglicarewaschoolsleepout.org.au. Our School team page is at: https://anglicarewaschoolsleepout.org.au/teamststephens
As we delve into the archives in our 35th year, we reflect on the excitement and anticipation of the first day at the Carramar campus! Does anyone remember the opening of the School in 2001?
Our mathematically minded Carramar Secondary students recently entered the International Mathematical Modeling Challenge for the first time, walking away with a Participation Award for their efforts! Students worked in teams to solve a real world problem, applying a mathematical model to the situation, and were given five days to submit a 10-20 page report. Well done teams!
Last week’s Try-A-Trade was messy but fun as Year 9 and 10 students from Carramar and Duncraig tried their hand at plastering. It took a few goes to perfect the trowelling technique before they took to the walls. There was lots of laughter at the realisation that it’s “harder than it looks” but the students took it in their stride; the lecturer impressed with “a few standouts” and the teens’ polite nature “even early in the morning”.
