Year 12 Cake Competition

Year 12 students and Senior School teachers gathered outside the kitchen in K block for what has become an annual event, the Year 12 Cake Competition. The Captains and Prefects invited the students and staff to this gathering. The staff put their baking talents to the test as they created the cakes for the students to consume. This year the COVID restrictions required them to make cupcakes that were individually packaged. The students just turn up, eat cake and judge the exhibits. The Captains and Prefects decided on the categories for this year’s competition and awarded the following staff as the winner in each category.

The Most Delicious Cupcakes: Mrs Coulthart
The Most Colourful Cupcakes: Mrs Muscat
The Most Creative Cupcakes: Ms ten Kate
The Best Presented Cupcakes: Mrs Young
The ‘Is that a Cupcake?’ Cupcakes: Mr Lindeback

Thank you to all the staff and students involved for a fun and enjoyable afternoon.

Snacks for the Movies!

Year 9 and 10 Food Technology students have been completing the practical element of their assessment task which required them to create, produce, brand, package and market a Snack Food themed appropriately to eat at the movies. They were required to set their own criteria for success and develop a marketing strategy.

Kayla Zarantonello created a toffee apple to enjoy while watching Alice in Wonderland. Rachael Ristevski created a delicious cupcake to enjoy while watching Batman.

Athletics Carnival

The Senior School Athletics Carnival took place in Week 6 of Term 3 at the Kerry McCann Athletic Centre, Beaton Park. Due to strict protocols it was a competitor event only. This was disappointing however students and staff made the most of a great opportunity. Conditions on the day were ideal. Blue skies, a gentle breeze and warm weather (for a winter’s day!). There were a range of highlights including 17 records being broken and the traditional House relays. At the end of competition Chiswell House, led by Mr Lindeback, were convincing winners on the day.
