Humevale Memorial

Students from Whittlesea Secondary College and Kinglake Primary Schools worked together to paint murals on two water tanks at the Humevale Bushfire Memorial site at the end of 2014.

Six students from 2014's 7A worked over three days. Initially students painted the tanks green and blue to create a background. Small groups then formed to devise how they would create a bush landscape with trees, animals and a waterfall. The 12 monarch butterflies were painted last and represent each member of the community who lost their life in the Black Saturday fires.

Science Students

A number of Middle and Senior School students had tremendous experiences in various fields of Science over the break.  We look forward to future newsletter articles from the following students, and we congratulate them for their involvement in the 2014/15 Science Experience, National Youth Science Forum, and the Strengthening Engagement and Achievement in Mathematics and Science Camp.

new microscopes

Thank you to the Parents Association Whittlesea Secondary (PAWS)!

On behalf of the Science faculty and students at the College I would like to say a huge thank you to our PAWS group for the funding of our six new microscopes. Year 10 classes are using them this week in their study of Cells and DNA, and appreciate the high-quality instruments provided by PAWS.  We are lucky to have such a passionate group of parents!
