As part of the Year 11 Geography Hazards course, students took part in a short field trip to the South East Regional Centre for Urban Landcare (SERCUL) to learn more about the mosquito and it's role in natural habitats and the risk they pose to humans. The students were given the opportunity to examine water samples from the nearby wetlands and found various macro invertebrate species that prey on mosquitoes and the mosquito larva themselves. This impact of mosquito borne diseases in Australia was also highlighted by the visit.

The Humanities and Social Science Department at Applecross Senior High School has organised students to enter the National History Challenge for the last few years.

This year we have decided to offer after school sessions to help the students better understand the requirements of this competition. Students essentially research a historical subject of their course using the 2016 theme “Triumph or Tragedy”. The first session was held at the same time as the school Open Day and was a great success. Nearly forty students attended the one hour session and they took advantage of the enthusiastic instruction by Ms Don and Mr Kelly. People visiting the school for the Open Day commented on how engrossed the students were in the development of their projects. Most of the students involved were from Academic Extension classes but other students are also encouraged to enter. Ms Don was also able to organise some senior History students to assist the younger students.
The school will select the best entries from Applecross and then these entries will be forwarded for statewide judging by August 24th. State winners are then selected for judging at a National level. Students should see their HASS teacher for more details if interested in finding out more about this prestigious competition.

More than thirty Year 10, 11 and 12 students turned up for specialised coaching for our four Mock Trial teams on the first day of term after school. Students are preparing for the second round of the Law Society’s Mock Trial Competition that will be held on May 11th. Sonia Walker, a Year 11 parent and Law Faculty Academic along with Dr  Steve Shaw and Marchè  Bantam from Murdoch University were able to assist us. A Year 7 parent, Ian Fox, a law student at Notre Dame also came along to assist. Keila Johnstone who was involved in the Mock Trial for three years in Year 10, 11 and 12 at the school and who is currently a second year Law student at UWA also came along to assist. The visiting coaches commented favourably on the enthusiasm and intellectual capacity shown by the students. We hope to continue to develop these relationships with the universities as the Mock Trials  continue to grow in popularity at Applecross. Families of team members are reminded that they are very welcome to attend and should be at the Supreme Court by 5.30 pm on Wednesday May 11th. Three of our teams will be against St Mary’s College and one team will be against St Brigid’s College.
