Principal’s Reading Challenge 2022
Students in Year 7 have been busily reading a range of different books in their wide reading periods in the library, recording the number of books they have completed both individually and as a class.
The program has been organised by the Library and the English faculty, with the aim of promoting literacy skills. An honour board as well as a sticker for the successful completion of a book have been strong incentives in this competition. Awards will be presented in a number of categories including: the class that has read the most books; the student who has read the greatest number of books in each class; the strongest overall reader as well as teacher awards for each class.
The second year of the college’s Principal’s Reading Challenge has proved to be just as successful as the inaugural event held in 2021. Students have been exploring books from a variety of genres, sharing their insights and enthusiastically queueing up for their stickers. We hope that the students have enjoyed participating in the competition and that they continue to read widely.
The library has had a facelift with new shelves and Carrells, new layout and rearrangement of books. We are still in progress redesigning the library to be a comfortable educational space for all students.

Year 8 Food Technology
The Year 8 students researched a country that has influenced the Australian cuisine. They designed, planned and produced a fusion pizza showcasing the two cultures.
The students stepped out of their comfort zone and were creative with their designs! They were a big success!
Well done Year 8, I am super proud!
