Congratulations to Kate Loveday, Harry Booker and Daisy Trang who are off to Sydney on Wed to compete in the FIRST Robotics Competition. A FIRST® Robotics Competition team consists of high school students typically aged 14 - 18. These students have to work together to design, build, program and drive robots. In building their robot and doing all the other things that go with an FIRST® Robotics Competition team, students learn valuable life skills like teamwork, collaboration, public speaking, technical science and engineering skills, Gracious Professionalism®, and others. Helping them are their adult mentors including industry engineers, school teachers, university lecturers, university students, FIRST alumni and others. These mentors use their experience to teach, guide and shape the students through the FIRST® Robotics Competition program.

The game this year is called FIRST STRONGHOLD and is played by two alliances of three teams each. Alliances compete against each other to breach their opponents’ defences, known as outer works, and capture their tower. They score points by crossing elements of their opponents’ outer works, scoring boulders in their opponents’ tower goals, and surrounding and scaling their opponents’ tower itself. The Australia Regional 2016 competition is on 17, 18, 19 March at Sydney Olympic Park Sports Centre.

2016 boys WA Champion schools winners and runners up. Well done to Applecross A and B who made the final of the Herbert Edwards Cup, with Applecross A victorious. Well done also to the Applecross F team who were runners up in the Division 2 event.

Parents of Year 7 students were eager to attend an afternoon tea held on Monday 29th February. This was an opportunity for them to meet teachers in an informal setting, before Parent/ teacher interviews later in the term.

Learning areas displayed their teaching programs for the year and also samples of work completed by students so far this year.  There were also samples of Design and Technology projects on display.

Parents and students alike were entertained with musical items by a number of the school Music students and tours of the recently completed Year 7 (North) Block were conducted by members of the school Administration. This area is where the majority of Year 7 classes are held.

The Year 8 Student Councillors ably served afternoon tea to both parents and teachers, while the students were treated to an icy pole from the Canteen.

It was a wonderful opportunity to initiate positive communication between Applecross Senior High School and Year 7 parents and is one of the many ways that we foster “Parents as Partners” in their child’s education at Applecross Senior High School.
