The school hosted another wonderful social event this week. Parents had the chance to hear from the Deans, and to meet the House Captains, who reflected on their past experience of Year 8 and what it meant to be part of a House and Homeroom. They then had the opportunity to mingle and meet the Head of Campus and network with other Year 8 parents.
Mrs Nicola Resta and Mr Stuart Gale, Deans of Alethea and Carana.
We witnessed the start of a new tradition thanks to some new cricket wickets! After Mr Herewini kindly provided the stick-on wickets, students and staff gathered to bowl the first ball and kick off a friendly match that looks to become a regular occurrence.
Can you spot any familiar faces at this cheerful reunion? Proving you always remain a part of the St Stephen’s community, past staff recently caught up to reminisce over countless memories gathered throughout the School’s 35 years.

St Stephen’s School will be well represented at the Rottnest Channel Swim this Saturday, with a group of Secondary students and staff ready to take to the water! Our swimmers will be taking part in teams, duos and even a solo crossing.
Good luck everyone!

Expectation was high. Pride on the line.
Both memorable matches, as much remembered by the contest as by the spirit in which the game was played. Once again the Year 12’s triumphed over staff.
There is always next year….
Today is R U OK? Day.
As we always remain vigilant of how our students, staff and families are, today staff across both campuses came together to ask the question while raising funds for the ever-important message. Asking the question is a start but we are always more interested in finding out the answer.

The weather was perfect for last Friday’s Athletic Carnival held at the Arena Joondalup.
With the sun shining and House pride on full display, our students have been giving it their best on the track and field today while cheering on their friends.
Well done to everyone!
