Good luck to the Year 11 Legal Studies students involved - Maha Syeda, Louise Armstrong, Isabella Soriano, Katie Farrell, Grace Allen, Piper Gorringe.

Science and STEM opportunities
This week we have some students joining the Big Science Competition which will give them valuable information about their Science learning.  A small group of students attended a webinar presented by a female engineer working for NASA JPL who spoke about her career pathways.  We have advertised two programs that take place during holidays that are pitched at students that are interested in pursuing a Science career.  One program is for students in Year 9 & 10 and the other for Year 11 and both offer experiences in cutting edge Science and Technology.  We will be calling for Year 10 students to participate in a Science and Engineering Challenge at WSU Kingswood campus in early term 3, a competition where our students have been very successful in previous years.

We also have an ongoing STEM Club currently running three different competitions and a coding course.

If your daughter is interested in Science and Technology then you should encourage her to join the STEM Club classroom page to look for opportunities beyond the classroom.  The access code is:  p5fxjvd

Year 8 STEM activity
The survey found at the link below was created by students in Year 8 working on an extracurricular STEM activity looking at solving problems around Sydney Transport networks.  They would appreciate any parents or members of the community completing the survey, particularly if they are regular public transport users.

The issue of vapes (e-cigarettes) has been raised by me in the past. I spoke to the students at the college assembly today and was very clear about my concerns on health and legal grounds. I was also very explicit that students found smoking on school grounds or on transport to and from school would face significant consequences, normally a formal out of school suspension. I would urge parents to talk about this issue with their daughters. There are many good resources out there. NSW Health has this webpage with information and further links.

Call for parent volunteers - Year 9 Textiles Class

We are looking for ways to increase volunteer opportunities for parents and carers here at the College and one way you can lend your support at the moment is by sharing your sewing expertise with our current Year 9 Textiles class. Volunteers would need to be available on Wednesday or Thursday mornings and be prepared to work alongside the teacher, supporting girls in all aspects of sewing - from patterns to machines! Volunteers are also required to complete the CEDP Build Child Safe Communities module which takes approximately 20 minutes. If you can sew and are interested in getting involved, please contact the Partnerships Manager, Nicky Alsemgeest, at the College for more information.
