Innovative Award

The Abydos app, developed by St Stephen’s School and Edith Cowan University, has been named a finalist in the Western Australian Information Technology and Telecommunication Awards (WAITTA) INCITE Awards for the Most Transformative Impact on Education.
The gamification app uses the theme of ancient Egypt to teach primary students about fractions, and research has shown a group of Year 6 students who used the app scored 10.5 percent higher than those who didn’t after just two sessions a week for four weeks using the app.

Abydos has been integrated into classroom teaching for Year 6 students at St Stephen’s.

The finalists were announced on Friday 15 June, with the winners to be named in later this month.

Congratulations to all involved – such a coup for our innovative School! Best of luck for the June announcement.

Caring For Our Community

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.

  

  

  

 

Library Lifeline

With the increased reliance on devices, it is more important than ever for us to offer charging amenities for our students. Devices like laptops, iPads and phones have become important educational tools that facilitate a productive learning environment. As the popularity of such devices continues to grow, keeping a device charged can be an issue. A dead battery limits student productivity.

The Library has installed a Charging Station with a multitude of different chargers.  Charging stations are fixed units that feature separate locking compartments where a student can leave their device to charge safely.
