Year 10 LIFT Week: Entrepreneurship and Business

The Year 10 Entrepreneurship and Business LIFT week participants spent two days working on innovative business ideas aided by industry mentors, start-up specialists and Spacecubed staff. Spacecubed is a start up ecosystem spread over two buildings in the Perth CBD. The students pitched their ideas to a team of judges from industry and gained some wonderful experience in thinking in a blue sky business environment. Congratulations to our winning team with their pitch of solar panel blinds!

Year 10 LIFT Week: Marine and Maritime at WA Fisheries

On Monday and Tuesday students had the opportunity to attend the Western Australian department of Fisheries to experience a day on the life of various marine related occupations. They completed marine science research in the form of intertidal sampling, dissected fish and removed the otoliths in order to age their specimen and enjoyed compiling fish collection information following and afternoon of fishing! A very hands on and insightful two days which has given our Year 10 students a taste of what to expect in the Year 11 and 12 MMS programs in the coming two years as well as the possible careers which it could lead them to in the future!
