FROM THE ARCHIVES

It’s hard to believe that our School was once a small collection of buildings surrounded by lots of sand! Throughout this year, we’ll bring you highlights from the archives as we celebrate 35 years of quality education. Take a look back and experience the excitement and anticipation of the very first day at St Stephen’s School.

DANJOO- INTERWOVEN

Year 11 students joined Artist in Residence Rohin Kickett, a Noongar artist from the Ballardong region for a 2 hour workshop at Midland Junction Arts Centre on Wednesday 20th March 2019. Rohin’s artworks are inspired by his family stories of strength and survival, along with his own personal experiences growing up in Perth. Born within 50km of where his family first made contact with settlers, his connection to the Ballardong region runs deep within his family.

Students were asked to considered their own identity and connection to place, they produced abstract representational paintings inspired by the Rohin’s working techniques and processes seen in his studio.

TOUR READY

Before jetting off to South Africa for the Service Tour in a few weeks, Year 10 students from Carramar and Duncraig stopped by Bunnings Joondalup to sharpen their DIY skills! Students were trained in using power tools, painting, gluing and sealing, making concrete, laying bricks and rendering. These skills will help students when they take part in building projects at JJ Haven Orphanage.

PAY IT FORWARD

Following a successful pilot program in 2017, St Stephen’s School was lucky enough to participate in WA Charity Direct‘s School Program again in 2018. Selected Year 8 Carramar and Duncraig students chose the Saba Rose Button Foundation as worthy recipients of a $25,000 donation from WA Charity Direct. Read more about this heart-warming project in the Joondalup Times.
