SPARKING SKILLS

Excited to expand their experience in electrical work, Year 9 and 10 students from Carramar and Duncraig recently attended the Try A Trade course at the College of Electrical Training. Students were given an introduction to domestic lighting systems and circuits, with the College commending students on their excellent attitude towards the course.

COLLABORATIVE CREATION

Collaborating with artist Natalie Zuchetti, Year 9 Visual Art students have created an eco-friendly Sea Dragon artwork out of recycled materials. The Sea Dragon will remain on display in the Primary Village for the Synthesis exhibition before heading to AQWA for an external exhibition later this year.

FAST PITCH

Jordan Belcastro  Year 9 and his Western Australian Under 14 softball team have achieved success in the 2020 National Softball Championship these holidays. Held in Sydney, the team won the Competition’s inaugural ‘Fully Loaded’ competition and finished third in the traditional ‘Fast Pitch’ competition.

SKATING SUCCESS

A year of early morning training, dedication and long hours on the ice rink have paid off for Year 9 student Isabella Djordjevic who was chosen to compete in the National Synchronised Skating Competition in Melbourne recently. Her team Infusion Junior overcame the odds, with all bar one team member brand new to the Junior Division, to impress at the State competition and come in a close fourth in two programs on the national stage. Huge congrats Isabella – a true testament to teamwork and commitment.

OUT OF THIS WORLD

Three students will blast off to the USA this October after being accepted into the exclusive Space Camp experience. Head of Science Mr Charles Biddle will accompany Carramar student Year 9 Aaron Popich and Duncraig Year 9s Natasha Anderson and Ben Flanagan on what is sure to be an exciting opportunity!
