Year 10 Textiles
In term 1 the Year 10 Textiles students were required to use a selection of fabrics to create a quilt. They extended their knowledge on threading, bobbin winding and needle replacement on the sewing machine. Using their understanding of colour, shape, line, pattern and repetition they worked hard over the term to produce a quilt they were extremely proud of.
Our first ever Badminton team competed in our district. A strong team of four in Alex Hybinett, Edwin Johnstone, James Davies and Arij Ameen took on Lalor, Lalor North and Epping to see who would progress through to the finals.
Hands On Learning
Our Wednesday and Friday Hands On Learning students (HOL) have been busy with many activities and projects. This Wednesday HOL students Damien, Mitch, Toby, Sean, Tye, Brayden and Mitchell were seen working together as they continue their fence building near the Senior School Centre.
Our Intermediate Girls Tennis team set out to Boroondara Sports Complex for their Regional competition to see who would be crowned Champion of Northern Metro. In a very tough drawer our girls were brilliant on the day and competitive in all matches.
In round 1 against Eltham, our number 1 seed Shanae Watson led the way in defeating her opponent in her opening match. Eltham’s lower order players were extremely strong, and they managed to take out the game, meaning Whittlesea would now be fighting for places.
Ronald Mc Donald House - VET Hospitality/VCAL
Students from VET Hospitality 3 & 4 supported one of our VCAL students Justine in her school community project. Students cooked an array of foods for the families living at Ronald Mc Donald House. RMD House currently had 51 families staying with them and was very appreciative our home baked foods we provided.
Our students demonstrated amazing teamwork skills and I was very proud to be assisting them on the day.
VET Hospitality Teacher
Our Boys Netballers went out to Mill Park Stadium for our Whittlesea Division Competition. Filling teams in our Junior, Intermediate and Senior competition, we were set for a big day across all teams.
Our Junior team had the tough challenge of taking on Hazel Glen where we were well beaten by a well drilled team. Round 2 against Lalor we were big winners by 15 goals, an outstanding effort. Our final game against Epping we fell well short, Epping eventually taking out the winning team on the day.
Year 10 Photography
Year 10 Students are currently working on a unit called "Storytelling through Photography". Over the course of the unit students have learned about the structure of a Photo Essay, sequencing and editing through Photoshop.
Students focused on a variety of themes ranging from the relationship between humans and animals to the comradery shared between team mates. These are some of their images.
Sustainable Garden Sculpture Workshop
Artist in residence Hoss Ayres and students took part in a creative public artwork called "The Forest Forever” in the Whittlesea Community Garden. The students decorated iron tree frames with all sorts of material and colourful recycled objects. Loads of fun was had and there was a real buzz with creative making.
