News from the High School

This week has been exciting in the High School. We started off the week having a well known local industrial designer, Nathan Pollock, come to the school and talk to our Design and Technology students. We also had a portable timber mill arrive at the school and demonstrate how timber is milled for use. It was noisy but fascinating! The smell of camphor cleared all our heads. Thanks to Peter Palmer for his work in bringing exciting experiences to our D & T students. 
Autumn Festival rehearsal took place on Thursday, followed by our High School Assembly which celebrated the whole High School’s participation in our Swimming Carnival. Ric was able to read out the winning house, amidst enthusiastic cheering. Sparta was declared the winner but the real winners were all the students who participated for their House. The House Captains handed out certificates to students who gained points for their house.

Tom Whitaker took his Year 12 Music students to Kadina HS for a rehearsal for the upcoming Bluesfest where our students will be performing on the Monday. At the same time, Loani and Ian accompanied the ensemble to Shearwater and Mullumbimby for some performances and fund raising for their trip later in the year.

The High School is a dynamic and enriching place offering students the opportunity to shine in their own individual fields and I applaud our wonderful teachers who, this week, have brought a variety of interesting experiences for the students.
