Secondary students from Carramar and Duncraig joined our friends from Rocky Bay at Neil Hawkins Park recently for a barbecue lunch.

FESTIVAL FUN

Year 7 Indonesian students recently travelled to Elizabeth Quay to attend the Festival Indonesia accompanied by none other than Mrs Donella Beare and Mrs Darnelle Pretorius! The group relished the opportunity to take part in creative workshops including batik painting, storytelling, singing and dancing. What a wonderful opportunity to learn more about Indonesian culture!

MAKING A DIFFERENCE

A group of Year 11 girls from Carramar and Duncraig spent their school holidays making a difference at Bethany Home in Malaysia. Students helped the children with their aerobics, motor skills, physical education and arts and crafts, while also taking the time to create a beautiful Peter Pan mural. The Tour no doubt forged close friendships and created memories the girls will never forget.
