Service Learning for A2

As part of their Service Learning today A2 paid a  visit to Creative Arts by RISE (formerly CATA) in Warwick.

Rise works with adults with disabilities to enjoy creative arts, which include drawing, woodwork, pottery and sewing. Our students had a hugely enjoyable time working with them on their artistic projects. All agreed it was a very worthwhile experience and, as ever, the students were a credit to themselves and to the school.

The students who attended from the A2 HR were:

  • Camile Copley
  • Chloe Aeschlimann
  • Max Geneve
  • Jaidyn Herman

CAS Sport Summary Round 1

In the first week of CAS for the new school year, all teams versed Prendiville College. There were some tough matches played against Prendiville resulting in some wins and losses.

In the girl’s senior touch, we drew with Prendiville 2-2. The senior girl’s year 10-12 volleyball team came away with a 2-1 victory as well as did the year 8 boys basketball winning 32 to 17.

The Year 7-8 boys cricket team had a close win against Prendiville with the score being 59 to 48. Unfortunately, the year 9-10 boys cricket team also had a close match but resulted in a loss with Prendiville scoring 153 and us only 139. The year 8-9 girls touch team were successful with scoring 4 to 2.

A special mention to the boy’s senior volleyball, who although saw Prendiville win, scoring 1-2, the two teams scored equal overall points smashing the second set but couldn’t take the third.

This week we’re up against LJBC, good luck to all involved.

Year 8 Earth Science Incursion

Recently the Year 8 Science students have been learning about rocks and the rock cycle. As part of these studies, we had a visit from Earth Science Western Australia (ESWA) on Wednesday the 20th of February. The students took part in some hands-on activities and learned about how we identify rocks and why they are important. ESWA’s visit to our school was made possible by funding from their supporters and we would like to thank them for this opportunity for our students.
