Year 9 Giving Projects
Posted on 21 Sep 2017
This week our Year 9 students exhibited their work from their community giving projects which has been the culmination of a term of work on giving and the benefits of giving back to the community – particularly for the person giving. The students set up stalls and presented their group and individual projects to their families, members of the community and local primary school students. Ms Gai Brodtman Member for Canberra also came to see the Giving Projects and all students had the opportunity to explain their projects to her personally and have a photo taken. It has been wonderful to see the students and their work towards their projects and their efforts in our local community. A big thankyou to Cameron Steer, Emma Menzies and Luke Foran for their work throughout the term to prepare for this. Another thanks goes to Jennifer Nott who helped oversee the projects.
Leadership invitation to the National Press Club address by Tara Moss
Posted on 24 Aug 2017On Wednesday 9th of August, four of the Leadership girls were lucky enough to attend the National Press Club to listen to Tara Moss present about Cyber Bullying. It was really good to listen to, as Tara addressed many issues that women everywhere face being online. Her speech was truly great and it was inspirational to listen to such a powerful woman. We ate lunch when we first got there (which was extremely flash and it blew everyone away). Tara then started to give her speech and it was very interesting to listen to, even though it was a bit distracting with the television cameras in our faces. After she was finished, it was time for questions to be asked and listening to the questions and responses was enlightening. Most of the questions that were asked were things that we couldn't think of on the spot. Unfortunately we didn't get to ask any questions, but we luckily did get a photo with Tara Moss. Overall we will never forget this wonderful experience.
