Principal Report
Last night we enjoyed meeting the Year 6 students and their parents who will join
our school community next year. Families were entertained by our talented and
enthusiastic Music students and were given a sneak preview of the 2010 Art
Exhibition featuring an eclectic range of highly professional pieces by students
from Year 7 to 12. Thank you to the many student and parent helpers, and to the
School Council
members who also
attended to welcome
our new families.
The official opening
is tonight beginning
at 5.30pm. Featuring
artworks from
subjects Art,
Ceramics, Mosaics,
Digital Art, Jewellery,
Textiles, Technology
Wood and
Photography, the
2010 Art Exhibition is
an impressive tribute
to the creativity and
artistic ambition of
our students and their very dedicated teachers, several of whom are currently
involved in VCAA exam marking. If you are free this evening, I highly commend
the exhibition to you.
compulsory VCE Orientation Program serves a number
of functions. For most students, it gives a confidence
building overview of the subject and provides a helpful
head start on Unit 1( Year11 ) or Unit (Year 12) work.
For a few students, it enables them to realise that the
subject they have chosen is not what they expected
and that they wish to reselect. Teachers have put a
great deal of time and thought into preparation of
lessons and materials to ensure a strong and positive
early start for our students.

several Rock Eisteddfods and who like Glenn is
generous in his time, effort and commitment to other

a familiar cycle, each year we are surprised by how
quickly the end of year has arrived and the need to
shift our energies and efforts to the following year while
ensuring a strong learning focus until the end of the
year. Students in Year 10 and Year 11 have been given

Year 8 Textiles
Semester 2 Concerts
In Year 8 Textiles we have been making calico bags or
pillows. My bag has a patchwork heart design. I made
the heart shape and then cut out many different
patches from the scrap fabric box. I picked the different
colours and fabric patterns because they look good
together and make a creative design. I am nearly
finished and so far I am very happy with my design
work.

studying gravity and

we paired up to make

Once we had finished
making the
parachutes we tested
them by standing on
benches and
dropping them while

This prac was a test
run for our assessment task which will involve dropping

Project Overview – Uganda
At Bikes 4 Life we are trying to raise as many bicycles as we can to send to the most isolated,
vulnerable and war-ravaged districts in Northern Uganda (Gulu, Pader and Kitgum) who
have been affected by a brutal 22 year long war and neglected by the outside world. The
people that live in these districts are largely displaced and are subject to extreme poverty,
mental illness, disease, famine and political instability. From the camps basic health care,
education, food and water is largely inaccessible. However with bicycles as a mode of
transport, civilians will have an increased chance at surviving…. accessing food, water,
hospitals and eventually recovering from the war.
Through bicycles we aim to create transport, which will allow vital access to and from the
remote locations of the camps, to make basic needs such as water, food, medical assistance
and schools accessible. We are trying to help revive a neglected people, promoting
community outreach and peace building.
Bicycles and the ease of transport to locations they provide have the potential to save the
lives of men, women and children that are dying every day due to preventable diseases.
Bicycles are also beneficial in terms of the economic recovery, aiding in areas such as
agriculture. By helping the people of the North move forward in the post-war period, we hope
to also promote peace and recovery, while helping to strengthen community relationships,
values and structures.
