Candid Conversation


Now well and truly immersed in Term 3, Carramar students are feeling inspired about their HASS studies after a recent visit from Dr Anne Aly MP, Federal Member for Cowan. Dr Aly met with Year 9 students who are beginning their Civics & Citizenship course, then visited the Year 12 ATAR Politics & Law class to discuss her experiences in Federal Parliament. Not only that, Dr Aly also spoke candidly with the Year 12 students about their hopes after high school and provided some words of wisdom as they prepare to move onto the next chapter of their lives. Thank you for visiting!

   

Clever Construction

Drawing on their teamwork and mathematical problem solving skills, Carramar’s Mathematics Enrichment students took on a challenge to build a giant six-level geodesic dome. Students are investigating the properties of geodesic shapes and how and why these shapes are used in building and construction. Take a look at how they went!

Students on a Mission

St Stephen’s School Carramar Home Economics students put the old adage of learning with purpose into practice last term, drawing on their sewing skills to help those less fortunate.
Spurred on by the words of Mission Australia WA Chaplain Scott Vawser, who took time to speak to the students about the impact of drugs, alcohol and homelessness on Perth’s youth, the Year 11 and 12 students created care packages for Mission Australia’s Drug and Alcohol Youth Service (DAYS), which provides a comprehensive range of treatment and support services to youth battling drug and alcohol issues.

Carramar Canberra Tour 2018

During the recent July holiday break a group of 19 Year 9 students and 3 staff from Carramar had the opportunity to participate in a 7 day educational tour to Sydney and Canberra. It certainly was a busy schedule and they managed to visit a host of special places which included the old Parliament and current Parliament Houses, Questacon, the National Capital Exhibition, the High Court, the National Gallery, the National War Memorial and the Australian Institute of Sport, as well as the Perisher ski-fields, where the students very much enjoyed the snow. They absorbed a considerable amount of Australia’s history, culture, heritage and democracy, with education and fun going hand in hand as it should.

We would like to take the opportunity to thank the Australian Government, who through their support of the Parliament and Civics Education Rebate (PACER), helped make the trip to the national capital more affordable through this funding process.

Special thanks to Mr Langley, Mrs Cross and Ms Percy for working with the awesome students who participated in this successful tour.
