Adieu to Madame Racape

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We just wanted to take this opportunity to let you know that Madame Johana Racape, our wonderful French teacher, will be taking some time off this year to spend time with her family. She will be leaving us today and will return to St Stephen’s in 2021. In conjunction with that, we are very pleased to inform you that Madame Julie Penin will be taking over this teaching load for the rest of 2020. Madame Penin is already well known to our Primary students, as she has regularly joined us as relief teacher.

We truly wish Madame Racape all the best and look forward to her return next year.

Kind regards,

Hannah Lockwood-Jones and Jarrod Heglund

Potato Olympics 2019

Have you ever wondered: Can smaller potatoes be flung further? Are rounder potatoes better at rolling? Do lighter potatoes create less splash?

These questions and more were investigated on Tuesday afternoon, which saw the Year 7 students participate in the Potato Olympics. The triumphant return of the Potato Olympics to the Duncraig campus saw potatoes being flung, rolled, bowled and dropped – all in the name of maths! Pure spud power was used to collect authentic data and determine which potato athlete and country would fry the competition.

Notice for Parents Year 7 & 8

Dear Yr 7 and 8 Parents

Earlier in the year your child may have opened a Pinterest account using their school email address. Pinterest is an excellent visual learning tool for students to document their research. Some of your children may have received some diet and body image advertising emails through their school email. You may wish to check with your child to see if they received any of these emails and talk to them about the content.

We have given time and instruction to the students in the classes affected to delete these accounts. Therefore no further emails should be coming through the school email system. Protocols for using such online learning tools are now in place. Here is a link where you can find further information about the protocols and how you can make using this learning tool as private and secure as possible.

If you have any further queries please contact Mrs Penny Herd, Head of Learning Area, Technologies.
