Keys Please

In the first few weeks of Term 2, the Year 10 cohort was involved in the Keys Please VicRoads learner driver program. We were fortunate to have a guest speaker from VicRoads provide us with a positive and engaging program that introduced the different driving skills and experiences that a learner needs in order to become a responsible and safe licensed driver. The students were engaged in a number of tasks that demonstrated the levels of concentration needed to drive safely and they were presented with souvenirs to take away as both keepsakes and memory prompters.

 

ANZAC Day

ANZAC Day

On ANZAC day this year, representatives from our Student Leadership team were privileged to march in the ANZAC Day Parade in Whittlesea. Our school captains Flyn Atwood-McInnes and Deanna Berry, along with student leaders Mitchell Allen and Rachael Oh, read out the names of the soldiers from Whittlesea who lost their lives in WW1. Kirsty Lord of Year 12 read the requiem beautifully. As always, the group did a wonderful job of representing the school at this meaningful event.

Save Our Sons

On Tuesday 26th April the entire Year 10 cohort showed their support for the Walk to ‘SAVE OUR SONS’ charity event which involved a boy Emilio who suffers from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. He was being pushed in his wheelchair 369km from Albury to Melbourne by his parents over a two week period and as they were coming through Whittlesea, our Year 10 students were assembled along Forest Street opposite the school to cheer them on. The school organised a gold coin donation from the Year 10 students and along with the staff we were able to donate just over $140 for the foundation.

Romeo and Juliet

‘Romeo and Juliet’- A Poem

By Bellanna Jenkins

 

Hating is like love, and loving is like hate      

Both are the same and yet they are divergent.  

Rivals that are ruled by hands of fate                        

Forcing those that feel to become urgent              

 

In their quest to find balance in peace                      

Two people trapped spinning around and               

around. They face fate in hope to cease                  

Literature

Year 12 Literature- Literature Review

 A Glimpse into the Past Through the Future

By Michaela Parkinson

The year is 1968, Philip K. Dick has just released his novel, ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?’ and readers are entranced with a view of the future. 

Philip K. Dick’s novel proposed, at the time, radical ideas of a future suffering the aftermath of a nuclear war with off-planet colonies and androids that feel empathy, or at least mimic it to a degree that it appears they do. 

Whittlesea Secondary College Debating Team

The Whittlesea Secondary College Debating Team went to Loyola College on Monday 18th April to compete against Parade College in the second round of debates. The topic for the debate was:

‘That professional sports should have separate leagues that permit the use of performance enhancing drugs’.

Athletics Carnival
The Athletics Carnival was held at the Meadowglen International Athletics Stadium last Tuesday. All field and track events were available for students to compete in on the day.
 
After a drizzly start the sun came out and we had a healthy amount of competition on the day across all year levels. Highlights were the inaugural "dress up 50m dash" in which Zac Rizzotto took the chocolate prize for running in his "death clown" outfit. We also had a large amount of costumes from our fabulous year 12 cohort.
