Badges made for the event

Last week Whittlesea Secondary College held a 'Love is Love' Film Festival, a celebration of the LBGTI community. The festival ran every day in the PAC during lunch hours, showing films such as Gayby Baby and Love in Full Colour. The festival was a success, averaging 25-30 students each lunch hour. Not only did the festival support the local LBGTI school community, we also raised a small amount of funds for Minus 18, an organisation that supports LBGTI youth in Australia.

Initials Painting

Students in Year 7 learn about colour and colour mixing with paint. They then needed to apply their knowledge to create an abstract painting that used their initials, bright colour and pattern. 7D have just completed the task, refining their understanding of the development process required to create Art as well as their skills in how to paint a neat, eye-catching design.

Just after the holidays, Year 11 VCE students went on an excursion into the city to see the RMIT University. The VCE students had a chance to be shown the ins and outs of how RMIT works and to hear the experiences of RMIT students – both present and past. The students arrived in the city at 9am where they had a chance to wander around and grab a coffee before being exposed to the possibilities of their future.

Intermediate Boys Football

Earlier in the term, the Intermediate boys football team ventured out to Northcote to play off in the 2016 Northern Metropolitan Region Finals.

The boys' first game was against Princess Hill Secondary College. It was a closely contested game with the wind playing a big factor. The boys led early but Princess Hill fought back getting within 5 points at the final siren.

Our second game was against Northcote Park Secondary College. After Bailey Stewart put on 3 goals within 5 minutes, we took the lead and held it for the rest of the match.

Intermediate Boys Netball Team

On Friday 22nd of July the Intermediate Boys Netball team travelled to Nets Stadium in Macleod to compete in the Northern Metropolitan Region Final. In the first game we were up against University High, with only seven players we were a bit worried going into this game. The boys played extremely well together and came away with a convincing 35 to 2 win. The second game was a must win to make it into the final. St Helena were a strong opponent for the first half but the boys were then able to push out their lead in the last half winning by 15 goals.

Computer Anatomy

Year 10 Advanced Computing

As part of their 'Anatomy of a Computer' investigation, the Year 10 Advanced Computing class were required to collaborate in small teams to investigate the internal components of an assortment of different computers, including servers, desktop PC’s and notebooks. 

The students exhibited great enthusiasm, thinking and problem solving skills throughout the investigation, while they negotiated their way through the disassembly and assembly of each machine.
