SSV State Swimming Championships
On Thursday 28th of April, we had 5 students represent Strathmore in the State Swimming Championships at MSAC and all 5 walked away as state champions!
Our 15-16 year old boys Medley Relay, consisting of Oli Moxon, Ollie Salmon, Ahmed Elgammal and Jonah Tanfara came from behind to steal gold with all boys putting in a huge individual effort in their respective legs.
Hamish Keenan competed in the multiclass events and is now a state champion in both the 50m Breastroke and the 50m Freestyle events - an amazing result!
Thank you and a big congratulations to all 5 boys who competed in the swimming championships, we couldn’t be prouder!
Year 7 Principal’s Reading Challenge
After the success of last year’s reading challenge, the library is about to launch the 2022 Principal’s Reading Challenge for Year 7 Students.
This initiative will commence in Week 3 of Term 2. The program will be managed during the Year 7 wide reading sessions held in the library. Students will select and read books from different genres in these classes, also maintaining a record of what they have read. Stickers will be awarded to the students once they have successfully completed a book. The stickers will then be placed on an awards board so that the students can see how their class is progressing.
Some of the categories in the challenge include fantasy, biography, adventure, picture story books, and historical fiction. Students will be encouraged to borrow books so that they can continue with their reading at home.
Prizes will be awarded in the following categories:
The Library and English staff would like to encourage all Year 7 students to participate in this program.
