Congratulations to Year 11 Carramar student Harman Heer, who took out the top photography prize at Murdoch School of Arts‘ 2017 Mesh at Murdoch Awards on Wednesday 6 December. Harman topped the Best Photographic Series category with these stunning shots, beautifully showcasing African wildlife in their natural habitat.
Carramar Year 7 students recently enjoyed an awesome day of team building activities at the Swan Valley Adventure Centre. Fun was high on the agenda, as well as challenges requiring students to work together to develop their problem solving and communication skills. There is nothing quite like getting out of the classroom for a day of fun with classmates!
Carramar staff and students heard the strum of drums during their lunch break as Carramar Percussionists gave an impromptu performance around the campus. Their moving display drew a curious crowd who enjoyed the energetic demonstration. Thank you to Mrs Thomson and the Percussionists for bringing beats to the lunch break!
On Monday evening, we celebrated the achievements of our Carramar Secondary students. We also said farewell to our graduating Class of 2017, who are beginning their journey beyond the grounds of St Stephen’s School. A full list of award winners can be found on our website: http://bit.ly/2BzosPV

Teachers from the St Stephen’s School Graduate Teacher Program celebrated the completion of the program this week. After two years of mentoring from our teachers and passing their knowledge onto our students, the group were sent off in style with an afternoon tea, certificate presentation and gifts.
The group, who studied through the St Stephen’s Institute, were the biggest cohort yet and applauded the school for the support it offered throughout their studies.
All the best to these outstanding young teachers – we look forward to working with you now and beyond.
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.
