Year 6 IPSHA Winter Carnival

On Thursday 27th June, all Year 6 students will be travelling to John XXIII College to participate in the IPSHA Winter Carnival. Students will play AFL, Netball, Soccer or Hockey against other IPSHA schools. The focus of the carnival is on participation and there are no finals. It is about giving children the opportunity to display skills learnt, promoting fun and enjoyment, encouraging everyone to participate and highlighting the importance of fair play.

Year 9 Outdoor Education Mountain Biking Camp

The year 9 Outdoor Education students participated in their overnight mountain biking expedition during week 7 of this term. The expedition was split into two parts with group 1 riding on Monday and Tuesday and group 2 riding on Wednesday and Thursday in the Dwellingup region of South West WA.

Group 1 was faced with some challenging conditions with heavy rain and cold temperatures. However, they all completed the ride very well and showed great resilience and flexibility in riding over 50km on off road tracks over the two days. The highlights were some long winding downhills and the team building and group cohesion shown throughout the two classes whilst riding.

Group 2 arrived in Dwellingup faced with less rain but colder temperatures. Students were treated to brilliant scenery and biodiversity whilst riding on the Munda Biddi trail and Waterous trail. Every student completed the rides over the two days with great enthusiasm. The highlights were a 2km long single track downhill and the abundance of roasted marshmallows over the fire on Wednesday night.

With Term 2 camps all over, Outdoor Education is gearing up for a busy Term 3 of camps with two mountain biking expeditions, 2 mountain bike day trips, a leadership expedition and a hiking expedition all taking place in term 3 through our Year 11 and 12 General and ATAR courses.
