BRILLIANT BROOKE

Brooke Hurst (Carramar Year 11) continues to make great strides in the world of hockey, after being invited to train in the Western Australian Institute of Sport’s hockey programme.

She’s also been invited to a training camp in Canberra with the Australian Institute of Sport in March 2020.

It’s safe to say Carramar’s Sports Department are super proud of Brooke, who is the only player in her age group in WA to be afforded these opportunities.

ICING ON THE CAKE

After their outstanding efforts in Hospitality this year, Year 12s Naomi Velterop (Carramar) and Abigail Kemp (Duncraig) were both nominees for School Based Apprentice of the Year at the Hospitality Group Training WA Annual Awards. In fantastic news, Naomi was awarded Runner Up!

St Stephen’s Alumni Zac Tholen was also awarded the John Cox Memorial Trophy for most Outstanding Apprentice. What a way to top off 2019!

BBQ Lunch

Secondary students from Carramar and Duncraig joined our friends from Rocky Bay at Neil Hawkins Park recently for a barbecue lunch.

This has become an annual event leading up to Christmas, but was the students’ first cross-campus barbecue.

The group had a great afternoon at one of their last catch-ups for 2019!


HEALTH KICK

Carramar Year 7’s in the Athlete Development Program have recently been looking at the importance of nutrition in a sporting context and in everyday life.

Today they had the opportunity to get into the kitchen and make their own protein bliss balls, muesli bars, smoothies and fruit and vegetable juices.

With some tasty results, they learned that there are healthy and yummy alternatives to refined sugar!

 

5000 MEALS

Carramar’s Year 11 Food Science and Technology and Certificate II In Hospitality students have played an important part in the 5000 Meals and Second Bite World Food Day initiative. Using donated surplus food, students made over 60 meals and 24 muffins for people facing homelessness. Their efforts will contribute to the state-wide goal to create 5000 meals for people in need from food that would otherwise be wasted.
