Last term, the Year 11 ATAR Earth and Environmental Science students investigated the igneous geology of the Yilgarn Craton at Mountain Quarry and The John Forrest Railway Tunnel.
The investigation included the mapping and interpretation of granitic and volcanic rocks and some challenging interpretation of geology in three dimensions. The fieldwork allowed the students to apply all the theory that they have learned in class to a fantastic field environment.
The hard work of students was rewarded with a brief inspection of the Oldest railway tunnel in Western Australia and a bit of hide and seek in the darkness of the now abandoned tunnel.
Goodluck to all students sitting their Mock Exams (Monday 7 October – Friday 18 October).
These mock exams are run under the same conditions as the actual ATAR exams, so they provide an excellent opportunity for students to further prepare themselves.

The Year 10 Remar Red Rowers will attend the three-day Red Leadership Camp on Phillip Island, Victoria. This camp aims to fully inform students about the requirements and expectations of the Remar program; with a particular focus on the motto and values for the Red Crossing. Further, it is the first and essential step in working towards forming a Christian community. This is achieved through interactive presentations, challenging activities, small group discussions and engaging prayer experiences. At the end of the retreat, students are given the opportunity to decide whether they wish to commit to beginning the Red Crossing in 2020.
