Top Prize

We are delighted to announce that Harman Heer (Carramar Year 11) has taken out the top prize – the Golden Mesh Award – at the 2018 Mesh at Murdoch Awards for his stunning photography! As Harman is currently overseas, he pre-recorded his acceptance speech while Mrs Lesley Nation proudly accepted the award on his behalf.

National Stage

Our teams continue to excel at each FIRST LEGO League competition – this time our two Carramar Teams have progressed to the Nationals! The Raging Comets, Galaxy Goats and Robotic Operating Buddies all performed well at yesterday’s State Finals. The Raging Comets and Galaxy Goats will now be heading to Macquarie University in New South Wales for December’s National Competition!

VET Induction Day

Tuesday morning saw the annual VET Induction morning, this year held at Duncraig campus, for all of the students embarking on External VET studies in 2019.

Students listened to Lewis Schofield (2017 graduate) and Megan Wright (2015 graduate) tell them all about where their qualifications have taken them since they left SSS.

Lewis is now working FIFO for BHP as an apprentice electrical mechanic and Megan has returned briefly from Scotland where she has been working in a stately home (using her Certificate II in Hospitality). While she is home, she is using her Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care as she does relief work in a childcare centre so that she can save some money before returning to the UK.

The value of a qualification earned at school was clear for all to see!
