Thrifty Fifty Winners!

Congratulations to the Senior School Thrifty Fifty winners! The theme for 2020 – Extraordinary Times – Extraordinary Tales. Students were required to write 50 words to the theme.

Scroll. Double Tap. Scroll. Two hours fades into forty-eight. They cling to my brain, becoming ingrained in my psyche. I give in, succumbing to common idiocy. Rock. Swing. Cross. Renegade…Renegade…Whoa. Clap. My brother screams in horror, “JESS THAT’S THE WRONG MOVES!” TikTok, the true virus of 2020.

Another Mock Trial Win!

While many interschool competitions have closed in 2020, the Mock Trial has been able to continue through zoom software online. This week our team competed against Woonona High School and came away with a convincing win! The College’s team is comprised of Year 10 and 11 students who have demonstrated enthusiasm and commitment to learning how the justice system operates and the relevant court room processes
