At the ACC Athletics C Division we were placed an agonising 2nd Place by 6 points! It was a fantastic achievement and reflected all the hard work and effort by all students. The Highlights were the Junior Boys taking out the 1st Place trophy in their age group whilst the Junior Girls were runners up by 1 point!!We have built solid foundations and a culture to hopefully build upon this success for next year.

Duncraig celebrated student sports achievements today in the gym.
Principal Donella Beare and guest speaker Brad Ness presented awards, colours and certificates.
The students enjoyed the talk by Paralympic Brad Ness.
Brad was a sports-mad teenager who excelled in swimming, tennis, hurdles and his favourite code, AFL. As a teenager, he worked as a deckhand aboard a high-speed ferry between Rottnest Island and Fremantle, before losing his leg when he was 18. Australia chose Brad to be the flag bearer for the 2016 Rio Paralympics opening ceremony. Brad made his Paralympic debut at Sydney 2000 as the Rollers missed the medals, but has been part of remarkable success with the team ever since. A silver medal at Athens 2004 was followed by gold in Beijing four years later, with London 2012 bringing about another silver.
Mr Titlestad, Head of Secondary, closed the assembly with a prayer.
Guests, awardees and parents were then invited to the Community Room for a morning tea.
A group of Year 11s lead by Mr Lickfold went on a abseiling adventure in Bickley today in perfect conditions.
This activity is part of their certificate in outdoor education.
Abseiling is the mastering of all surfaces and the incredibly useful skill of using a rope to get down vertical drops. Practiced on everything from mountains and bridges and even out of helicopters, abseiling lets you descend from great heights at a pace that suits you.
The eagerly awaited results from Tuesday’s Athletic Carnival are here.
Super effort by everyone!

School sport is an integral part of a child’s development. So many great lessons can be learnt from them participating as an individual or as a team member. The Athletics Carnival involve a mixture of individual and team events. Some of the events include sprints, relay races, long jump, high jump, tug-a-wars, etc.. By trying a variety of sports, students get the opportunity to see if they are gifted in any particular area – that they may not have known about or enjoyed before.
Apart from the physical benefits of sports carnivals there is also the comradery that is formed by being part of a House – the house colours, the war cries, the house mascots – this builds a feeling of team and community and a little friendly school rivalry!
The house results are as follows:
1st Place: Timae
2nd Place: Alethea
3rd Place: Carana
Congratulations to all students and staff.
Students were involved in the Buchanan Cup at the Perth Hockey Stadium on Tuesday.
Playing teams from across Perth (and beyond), the girls put in a creditable performance in winning one game and also drawing another. The games were keenly-contested and our performances were spirited. The team comprised students from both the Carramar and Duncraig campuses and students ranged from Year 7 to Year 11. As ever, they were a credit to the school.
