The theatre group Poetry In Action recently visited the Duncraig campus to present ‘Words of War’ to our Year 11 ATAR English and ATAR Literature students. The presentation focused on the works of Wilfred Owen, a WWI poet, and explored the potential and power of words to capture the inhumanity of war. Not only was the performance entertaining, it will help students in preparing for their Semester 2 exams.
Teaming up across our campuses, Year 12 ATAR Biology students from Carramar and Duncraig recently worked to make transgenic organisms. Taking the GFP gene from jellyfish and inserting it into bacterium, results show that when the gene is expressed it glows! Students then participated in a debate discussing the ethics behind genetically modified organisms and the future impact the science will have on society.

The ATAR Y11 Human Biology students performed a chicken wing dissection to help associate the musculoskeletal system in humans. They discovered that pulling on the tendons would flap the wings.

Here are my Y11 Biology ATAR students carrying out their very first independent scientific inquiry assessment. All students had to research, design and investigate a factor of transpiration in plants. Let’s hope the results work out!
