Gold!

Congratulations to Thomas McIntyre ( Year 8) who has just won a gold medal at the 2019 Philosothon! Thomas made strong contributions in all four philosophical discussions, taking out First Place for Year 8 in Western Australia. The achievement was no easy feat as Thomas came up against some extremely difficult competition from around the state. Well done!

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.
