Congratulations to Applecross Blue (our Year 12 team) who finished 11th out of 124 teams in the first round of the Mock Trial. They will be the Defence Team against John XXIII College in the week beginning July 23rd. Unfortunately some of the team were on an English excursion today but we have Carolyn, Val and Andrew pictured along with their coach Lachlan Silberstein. This is the first team in the six years we have been competing we have reached the final sixteen teams.

 

181 trials were staged in Round 1, including two at the Bunbury Court House and three at Mandurah Court House. 87 individual volunteers adjudicated for the Law Society this year, and some have presided over several trials.

 

There were 124 teams in this year’s program with1302 students taking part. All the students competed in a spirit of friendly competition. There were 23 teams that won all three of their trials.

 

Well done to the Year 12’s but the three other teams also did exceptionally well.

 

Also, Shaneli Dias, former Applecross SHS mock trial participate, Bachelor of Commerce (Finance and Law and Society), is also featured on page 19 of the The University of WA 2019 Course Guide.

Twenty five year 10 and 11 students braved the cold, dark winter morning to volunteer on Friday 29th June to help raise funds for Red Nose Day. From 6.45am our students were on duty to catch the morning rush of city workers to accept donations and to sell promotional items in Forrest Place. Nine infants still die every day in Australia from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, and these funds are needed to conduct research for a cure. Congratulations to the generous and enthusiastic students who participated and represented our school fantastically. We had lots of encouraging and positive comments about our efforts.

Congratulations to Year 12 student , Zac Littlewood, who was recently crowned World Champion at the Laser Radial World Championships held in Kiel, Germany on the 18th to 24th of June. The championships have been held every year since 1989, organized by the International Sailing Federation and the Laser Radial is an Olympic sailing class

 

Zac has said he was the youngest competitor there and that he was able to beat a six time world champion. There were over one hundred competitors from 25 countries. He is also appreciative of the understanding shown by his teachers as he continues with his Year 12 ATAR studies while needing to travel and train for his sailing. The school is very proud that one of our students has enjoyed such success at an elite level. He is pictured here being congratulated by the Deputy Principal, Mr Lilleyman.

Well done to Applecross Senior High School students who participated in the Mock Trial this week. We had a successful night with three wins and a narrow loss. At the time of writing we do not know if any of teams have made it through to the next round so this may have been the last time Year 12 students were able to represent the school. Some of these Year 12 students are in their third year of competition.

 

We would like to especially thank Mr Dickson, Ms Wallner, Mr Silberstein and Ms Barnes who have voluntarily given up their time to coach teams. We have also been able helped by our lawyer coach, Cory Folgliani. The staff in the front office have provided invaluable help in organizing our uniforms and of course we really appreciate the support of parents. One of the great joys of the Mock Trials is talking to parents who attend and they are often quite surprised at the way students are able to excel in the Mock Trials.

Congratulations to the Scimitar String Orchestra who performed in the WA Schools Senior Orchestra Festival on Sunday 24 June at Churchlands Senior High School Concert Hall. The Scimitars consist of 34 advanced string instrument players ranging from Years 7-12, and were awarded Excellent in A Division. They are proudly conducted by Tim Stapleton, Head of Music.

 

The male staff were the winners of today’s clash against the Year 12 students, the score being 10 teachers, 7 students. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s clash, when the female staff take on the female Year 12 students. Can the staff win a second time or will the girls get a chance to revenge this loss.

On Tuesday 19th June nine enthusiastic Year 12 Chemistry students travelled to the Chemistry Precinct at Curtin University of Technology to compete in the 2018 RACI TITRATION STAKES.

The competition is designed to encourage students who enjoy Chemistry, particularly its practical side, to develop their skills and to reward those who attain a high level of proficiency. Every Secondary School in the state was invited to enter teams consisting of three members each.

Each team had two hours to complete four titrations, carry out all calculations and hand in result sheets. All of our teams performed well and competed successfully with a high degree of accuracy. Our top performing team just missed out on reaching the finals with results only 0.00159 mol/L different from the winning team’s! Congratulations to all participants.
