Around the grounds with Year 10
Jul 29th, 2022Our Year 10 students have been involved in many activities in class over the last few weeks and it has been a pleasure dropping by and seeing our students enjoying their learning and actively participating in their classwork. Ms Cameron’s class were in the Makerspace constructing 3D models of DNA for their science class ‘Who You Are’, which is a subject combining Biology and Psychology content. Mr Collins had his students in the gym working on their fitness programs and also outside for a boxercise session which looked like lots of fun. Ms Lamour’s Mullauna Masterclass class were frantically preparing and cooking either cherry ripe or peppermint slice which looked amazing and Mr Vapp’s English class were focussed on a Kahoot! on the memoir ‘Night’ which they are reading and analysing at the moment. Keep up the fantastic work Year 10 students!

Year 10 METEC Driver Education
Jun 17th, 2022On Friday 20th May and Thursday 9th June 65 Year 10 students took up the opportunity to attend the METEC Driver Education Facility in Bayswater North. After the induction, the groups split, with half of the students taking to the streets (private roads at METEC) to improve their driving skills and the other half into the classroom to better their knowledge of road rules and driving strategies in particular situations. The groups rotated to allow practical and theory to be spilt both before and after lunch. This opportunity saw many of our students drive a car for the first time and become more aware of the dangers of driving a car and those around them. Well done to our students who participated in both theory and practical sessions to an exemplary standard and congratulations to the small number of students who successfully sat for their Learner’s Licence on the day.
