Year 12 students headed off to Kiah Ridge for a three day retreat. This was an enjoyable experience for them, as they considered the best ways to approach their final year of schooling.

Quotes from some students:

The Year 12 retreat was a fantastic and memorable few days which included many educational, interactive and inspiring seminars, and allowed enjoyable time to bond with fellow peers and members of staff. CB 

Year 12 students were given an excellent opportunity to engage in a variety of activities at our retreat. A highlight certainly was connecting as a year group and creating some unforgettable memories. RR

I really enjoyed having the free time to get to know our peers and teachers in a different environment. CS

The Year 12 Retreat was a great three days where we learnt some important study skills to help us in our final year of schooling. There was also free time where we could hang out with our friends and participate in fun activities. LW

Year 10 are currently studying World War One in History. This week they have been able to gain a greater appreciation for the experiences of those who participated in the war by viewing an Australian War Memorial archival box. This box contains artefacts from the war, surplus uniforms and some replica pieces. As the students prepare to complete an assessment task on an Australian Service Person from World War One it is wonderful to see so many making personal connections with relatives, places and people who were involved in The Great War, such a significant event in Australia and the world’s history.

Swimming Carnival 2022

A very disrupted start to the Senior Carnival being postponed due to Covid restrictions at the original venue. The carnival was then moved to a new venue at Warilla Swimming pool.

With a larger student cohort the senior carnival continued to increase with high participation and increased number of heats, especially within the 13 yrs age group. This placed a strain on completing the program but with staff cooperation we were able to complete the day. Unfortunately, the house war cries were again cancelled due to Covid but was replaced with some music, creating a great carnival atmosphere for the day.  

Thank you to both the P & F who provided and organised the BBQ, this was greatly appreciated and to all staff for their help with the running of the day.
