Archaeology @ Flinders University Day 

A group of our Year 11 students who are interested in finding out more about careers in Archaeology attended this day, and found it to be a very informative experience that gave them wonderful opportunities to network with experts in the field, and ask them questions about this career path. Thank you to Flinders for facilitating this opportunity.

Our photography group guided by Daniel had a photo competition to put their application of newly learnt skills to the test. Congratulations to the student winners and their final pieces. It is fantastic to see how the students have developed their skills and passion over the course of the term.

This term students have chosen to expand on their Term 1 passion project or have chosen a new passion, students are exploring anything from crochet techniques, learning Python & HTML, rebuilding a lawn mower engine, learning a new language to scientific research on thermodynamics. Students are preparing to showcase their work later in the year.
