Year 7 Football Team

Recently the Year 7 Football team took part in the 2015 District Winter Sports Competition at Mill Park Lakes Reserve.

The boys' first game was against Mill Park Secondary College. We had the breeze in the first half and put the score on the board early, putting the pressure on Mill Park to do the same in the second half. Whittlesea continued to score well against the wind and ran away with the win.

Netball Team

Year 7 Girls Netball.

The Year 7 Girls Netball Team faced some challenging opposition last term at Mill Park Stadium. The girls played 9 games of netball, each with 9 minute halves. They were immediately challenged by Hazelglen and unfortunately lost this game. However, warmed up and working more cohesively, the team went on to win the remaining 8 games.

Parents of Year 10 Students: SENIOR SCHOOL INFORMATION EVENING

 

As students transition from Year 10 into Senior School it is important that all students and parents are well informed about the process and structure of VCE/VCAL and VET. The first step in this transition is the Senior School Information Evening on Wednesday 29 July at 7.00pm in the Performing Arts Centre.

During the holidays we had one Year 12 and three Year 11 students attend the SEAMS (Strengthening Engagement and Achievement in Mathematics and Science) camp at Monash and Melbourne Universities. The camp aims to increase equitable participation and attainment of students in science and mathematics related disciplines in higher education.

The following 11/12 students have been on the SEAMS summer.

Sculpture

Year 10 Art

Inspired by Japanese Artist, Hiroshi Yoshii, Year 10 Art students created sculptures that reflect his style. Yoshii creates 3D illustrations so lively they seem real. He posts these new characters on his own blog The Daily Work after hours of painstaking and precise digital labor. Hiroshi is driven by excitement for his creative process and by pure love for his 3D creatures.

Magazine Cover

Students are exploring the codes and conventions of narrative in a variety of different media. They used Adobe Photoshop to construct magazine front covers to refine their technical skills and develop narrative in front covers. Have a look at some of the work our students have been creating.

Senior School

Well done to all VCE students who completed mid year exams in the last two weeks. It is a busy time with the transition into Units 2 and 4 and it is important that students stay focused and motivated as the term draws to a close. Students and parents are encouraged to communicate with subject teachers and Student Managers about any concerns or queries they may have so all staff can provide the necessary support needed for all students to perform their best.
