Upon our return to school Perry gave us the news that he had been selected and attended the National Gallery of Australia for the Summer Arts Scholarship. Applicants were selected late last year so he's already been and had an amazing experience.

 

This is a great win for our school as only 16 winners were selected from across the country

On Friday 550 of our Year 7 and 8 students were able to be addressed by Glen from the Hopeful Institute on “Finding their Purpose”. Students learned about resilience and setting goals to achieve their passion and more importantly about self-belief.

 

During Period 2 over 500 Year 9 and 10 students also attended a presentation by Glen. The focus for them was called ‘Jailbreak’ which ideally about leaving past events in the past and moving forward to achieve personal goals. All students across all 4 Year groups were enthralled by Glen with many of them walking away feeling motivated and inspired to achieve their dreams and set about putting things in place to reach them!

Year 8 students in Mrs Smith's Food Awareness class have made a great start to 2019! This week they have participated in lessons relating to hygiene and safety in the kitchen and they demonstrated basic cooking skills to prepare Fruit Salad and Yoghurt Dip.  We are looking forward to learning about nutrition and further developing our skills in the kitchen to prepare delicious and nutritious meals.

 

We would also like to thank our Home Economics Assistants, Normita, Rachael and Gayle for the smooth start to the year.

Our Year 7s have just had their first day of school after the Big Day In. The Big Day In is designed to help our new Year 7s transition into high school. During the two day program, they did such activities as, getting to know each other and make friends, learn about where everything is in the school by doing scavenger hunts, test themselves on the rock-climbing and high ropes course, the importance of realistic goal-setting, inclusion and thinking positive, as well being mindfull of their thoughts and feelings. The two days helped them to have a very successful first day at Applecross SHS and give them a great foundation to their first year in high school.

Thank you to the efforts of last year’s Year 11 Coordinator Mrs Edwards and Mrs Hinton from Student Services, the Year 12 Leavers Jackets have arrived. Members of the Student Council and Mrs Zaknich helped Mrs Hinton hand out the majority of the jackets Monday after school. Despite the hot weather, many of the students could not resist trying them on.

The next big event for the Year 12s will be the Ball which wll be held on February 22nd.

We have a great group in Year 12 and I am looking forward to a fantastic year.

Year 12 Coordinator
