From the Secondary Campus

Exchange Students Meet the Principal

Japanese exchange students Fumiya, Takya, Megumi, and Noemi met with Deputy Principal of Secondary Mr Darren Martin during the week. The students, with the support of Exchange Program coordinator Jenny Toepperwein and Year 10 Coordinator, Mr David Nuske, spend ten weeks on campus immersing themselves in English, improving their fluency and learning about Australian culture.

 

Secondary Swimming Carnival

Students from Years 7 - 12 travelled to the Pool in the Park Doveton for the recent Secondary Swimming Carnival 2020.

 

The day was filled with enthusiasm as students warmed up for their swimming heats. Students performed in 50m freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke and age relay finals. Students also had the chance to perform for the House colour with the novelty events including the Sunken Treasure and Pool Noodle Relay. 

The day concluded with students have some fun in the sun on the waterslide and play pool where they kept cool from the summer heat.

 

This was the closest swimming carnival ever making it exciting for competition. Landy came in at 4th, Court came 3rd, Elliot came 2nd and Jackson came 1st by a margin of only 1 point!

 

All students showed excellent sportsmanship through encouragement and participation. Our college values of excellence, service, resilience and respect were exhibited by all and made for a positive experience throughout the whole day.

Year 7 Information Evening

A number of Year 7 Parents and students attended the recent Parent Information Session, held Monday 10 February. Mrs Sione spoke about expectations, uniform and routines in starting secondary school. Although the choc-chip biscuits disappeared quickly over the course of the evening, parents took the opportunity to have conversations with staff about subject areas and choices available for their child in Year 7.
