COMMUNITY CAMPOUT

Although the evening temperature dropped below zero, the sun was shining and smiles were all around as more than 200 people enjoyed the inaugural Community Campout at The Kaadadjan Centre over the weekend. Families enjoyed quality time playing games, using the sports equipment, cooking damper over the fire, making their own Aboriginal-inspired artwork and mining for choc chips with Alcoa. There were lots of laughs around the campfires and the children enjoyed an outdoor movie under the stars. What a wonderful time!

The Kaadadjan Centre will soon open for private bookings for our families, staff and alumni. Keep and eye out for more information.

WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ

What a wonderful few weeks we’ve had watching Carramar and Duncraig Primary’s performances of the Wizard of Oz. Congratulations to everyone who helped bring the magical production to life and thank you to all those who joined the audience to support our students!

Father’s Day Fund Raising

These Year 11 Students thought of a novel way to fund raise for their Cambodia trip next year by helping out at the Primary School Father’s Day BBQ.

A big thank you to Joy Ford and Primary School team who gave the students the opportunity.

Market Day

The end of term three saw the participation of the Year 8 students at the Year 5 Market Day.  Students in Year 8 were studying the idea of sustainability which tied in perfectly with the Year 5 Market Day. There was even a little time for Year 8 students to reminisce about their time in the Primary School Playground. The purpose of this day was to sell goods that had been recycled from existing products.  The creativity of the Year 5 students was extortionary and we look forward to seeing their products next year.

A whooping $1014 was raised.

Design & Tech Champs!

The Design and Tech department welcomed the Year 5 students into their space this week and helped immeasurably with a sustainability project that they are working on. Staff happily gave their time and resources to our children (and adults). We’re blown away by their kindness and generosity. These workshop experiences will definitely be a highlight for so many of our students – and us.

That’s Debatable!

Debating teach students about the difference between strong and faulty arguments. It guides students through the process of developing claims and counter-arguments, as well as ones that help them identify common logical fallacies.

Introducing our fabulous combined debating teams comprising of students from Year 6 and 7.
