Our school will be transitioning to NAPLAN Online in 2019. A trial is planned of the assessment platform scheduled for 27th August. Groups of students will undertake online tests that will include examples of the new NAPLAN online questions. Participating in the trial is important as it will help us ensure we have adequate internet connectivity and simulate the conditions for future test rounds. It will also give most of our students an opportunity to see the platform prior to their year 9 NAPLAN in a low pressure scenario as reports are not issued for readiness tests.
We are on the look out for some more amazing secondary teachers to join our team. We have commenced our recruitment for 2019 with some of our teaching positions advertised on www.jobs.wa.gov.au, and more to follow shortly.
Some footage of our first football match last week. We are so proud of the boys, and they looked great.

The word is out – Fresh as Cafe is a hit with our students. Some students are coming back to thank Chris for the yummy food and there are even students coming back for seconds each lunch. Chris has thanked the students for making her feel so welcome and she has taken the time to get to know our students and meet their dietary needs. Chris commented how polite students are, we are so proud of them!
More information regarding the Cafe is available on our website including the new Dietary Requirements menu.
School photos have arrived today and were given out in PCG class. Uncollected envelopes will be at the front office for any student absent today.
If you wish to place another photo order which will be sent to your home address you can contact Academy on 9248 1263.
Students have welcomed Chris and her team to the college and are very pleased with the meals on offer. It is standing room only at both Lunch 1 and Lunch 2 as students rush in to get their food from the selection of freshly made on site produce. Chris adapts any menu item to taste and preferences and as she is passionate about providing nutritious and tasty meals, she is quickly learning and catering for, the student’s various tastes. An additional menu for special dietary requirements has now been released.
We are very excited to kick start our Academies program this term, most of the programs occuring after school commencing week 2 and will continue until the end of term. All parents/caregivers have been emailed details on how to register through Qkr and students were provided with the Academy schedule in PCG class. There is a fantastic range of Academy options including sporting teams, technology and the Arts. If you have any questions please contact the College.
Our Year 7 students have been busy in Visual Art creating animal chalk pastel drawings as part of their Semester One drawing unit. They have gone through a series of drawing processes to complete their artworks and the quality of the drawings has been impressive. Some of the works are featured below and on display in our front office.
Our school is part of a national project about students with disability and or learning difficulties, called the Nationally Consistent Collection of Data (NCCD). We have been asked to provide data about the number and learning needs of students at our school. As part of the collected data, individual students and schools are not identified.
The project aims to collect information about differing student needs. It also looks at the levels of intervention in place such as the programs and resources the school has utilised so that students can overcome barriers, participate and learn. We believe it is important to contribute to this project because it will help inform Government and the Education Department about level of resources needed in schools.
