Our students undertake a range of practical subjects in our purpose built facilities as part of their programs. Pictured below is one of our Year 8 students Maddie Malins in her Design and Technology classes with Mr Imrie and Mr Richardson. Maddie engages wonderfully in all of her practical subjects and overcomes any obstacles in her learning due to her vision impairment. Maddie demonstrates perseverance perfectly which is one of our College Agreements. Great work Maddie.
We were lucky to receive some food donations from our community partner Ozharvest which our Year 10 student leaders crafted into individual family hampers for families in need in the area. We donated the Term 4 2020 Christmas food drive to Ozharvest and we really appreciate that this has resulted in an ongoing connection that allows us to give back to the community.
Our Year 10 students have been learning about sustainability within the Textiles industry and creating items that focus on reducing wastage. Recently they have completed their first project, to upcycle a reusable bag into a fashion item and we are loving their creative usage of an everyday item.
We are so pleased to see students challenging themselves to lunch-time chess battles in Ms Merten’s classroom. Chess is wonderful for improving student’s problem-solving skills, spatial awareness, memory and creativity.
