BEST JOB IN THE WORLD

Science teacher Mr Ben Nicholson, equipped with his GoPro, has accompanied our Year 11 Marine and Maritime Studies students on their scuba diving adventures this term. He captured some awesome footage of the students during their course, from when they began learning about the equipment to their open water boat dive off Rottnest Island. Take a look!

EXPLORING WA

Y11 Biology students investigated the range of ecosystems down Busselton. They explored the underwater observatory and was amazed by the marine life, the beaches and their unique vegetation to sustain life in harsh environments, nocturnal organisms by spotlight and the awesome Ngilgi cave.

What an amazing world we live in!

POETRY IN ACTION

The theatre group Poetry In Action recently visited the Duncraig campus to present ‘Words of War’ to our Year 11 ATAR English and ATAR Literature students. The presentation focused on the works of Wilfred Owen, a WWI poet, and explored the potential and power of words to capture the inhumanity of war. Not only was the performance entertaining, it will help students in preparing for their Semester 2 exams.

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.

STARS OF THE SILVER SCREEN

Year 11s dressed to the nines as stars of the Silver Screen for their River Cruise recently. The night was a great success filled with dancing, laughter and making memories. Deciding the winners of the costume competition proved difficult with some very imaginative gets-ups including Winnie the Pooh, Top Gun, 101 Dalmatians, Prank Patrol and The Jokers. It was a tie for first place with Adam Fletcher (Halo) and Rylan Cunnane (Elton John) taking out the $100 gift voucher.

TALENT ON SHOW

Three of our senior students have been selected to feature their artwork in the prestigious 2019 St George’s Art Exhibition. Be sure to visit St George’s Cathedral to see their stunning work on display before the exhibition closes on Sunday!

Congratulations to:
Will Boutle Year 11
Tascha Cox Year 11
Olivia Roberts Year 12

THE BARISTAS ARE BACK

The baristas are back in Duncraig Secondary, with Year 11 students practicing their skills as part of their Certificate II in Hospitality. With staff members keen to sample the warm cuppas in these winter months, students are certainly getting lots of practice as they work towards their qualification!
