Year 7 & 8 Athletics Carnival
A cold but sunny day made for a very successful carnival this week. So many students had a turn at multiple events and were very busy and active all day.
Thankyou to the Year 9 Coaching and Fitness elective class who came to assist teachers in running events and made the day progress smoothly. There were also Year 10 student leaders who helped organise the teams and the BBQ which was very popular.
The following students are the age group champions for accumulating the most points for their team in their respective categories.
Congratulations to the following athletes who are year level champions for their events. Many of these athletes will be selected in the school athletics team who will compete against other schools later this term.
The overall results of the carnival will be announced at the next team assembly so students will have to wait to find out the result.
Students who placed 1st, 2nd or 3rd will receive their ribbon at the next team assembly.

Year 11 Art Excursion
Engagement in Art not only requires personal art-making but also getting inspiration and knowledge from studying the creative practice of artists. Seeing artworks in real-life enables students to see additional details and perspectives, and to gather important personal impressions that supports their own work.
On 3 August, 2 classes of Year 11 Art students visited the National Gallery of Victoria, both at Federation Square and in St Kilda Road.
Fortunately, two of the artists currently being studied had their work on display: a painting by Kaylene Whiskey (Australian) in “Who are you: Australian Portraiture” and a “Soundsuit” by Nick Cave (USA) in “Queer”. The latter exhibition, “QUEER: Stories from the NGV Collection” is a sprawling hang, split across all seven galleries of the third floor of the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) International. It is the largest queer exhibition ever staged at a state gallery in Australia, consisting of approximately 400 works from antiquity to the present including fine art, fashion and design. There was something for everybody and the students were highly motivated to explore the works.
In addition, they were delighted to see work by Ron Mueck, Mass, which comprises 100 large-scale resin sculptures of the human skull, a momentous and confronting work.
We look forward to seeing the way students integrate inspiration into their own creative practice.
