Congratulations to Mrs Raich, Mr Lilleyman, Toby, Jordan, Emerald, Georgia and Xaviera for their efforts in getting shaved. We also had Declan from Year 8 and Ms Purvis shave their heads in support of our fund raising. Thanks to Andy Saxton, Mr Goodenough and some Year 12 students for their shaving efforts. Well done to Mr Wilding and as well as Jacob from Year 10 for setting up the sound system. Max Uchino, our Head Boy, did a magnificent job hosting this lunchtime event. The efforts of Sophia Ammali in taking the photos as well as of the others who helped with the collection made the day a roaring success. As at 3pm on March 14th we have raised over $7200. You can still donate at this link https://bit.ly/2tKQjed

 

I would especially like to acknowledge Andy Saxton our School Chaplain. He is the main driving force of this Year 12 Student Council event. The 2020 now have a serious challenge if they are going to raise more than this amount next year but I have already heard them discussing who will be shaved in 2020.

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.
