Year 12 Retreat

Year 12 students participated in a three day Retreat Camp held at Woodhouse Activity Centre in the Adelaide Hills. The annual event for our graduating class provides an opportunity to leave behind their normal daily lives and be part of a process which allows them to take stock of where they have come from and where they are going.

Through a range of activities, students were given the chance to reflect on their lives and the people who support and love them. It was also a time of deepening friendships and delighting in the company of one another.

Some of the outside activities included Challenge Hill, Laser Skirmish and Tube Sliding while they also participated in smaller group games and times of reflection. 

Students are to be commended on the enthusiastic way they entered into the program and it was fantastic to hear the camp and catering staff speak so highly about the nature and quality of our students.

Minister for Education visits College

Special guest Minister for Education the Hon John Gardner MP was welcomed to the College on Tuesday 18 May for a tour of our unique educational facilities. Year 11 & 12 students from the Food & Hospitality, Hair & Beauty, and Childcare programs did an amazing job hosting our guest.

The outline of the tour was planned and conducted as part of the students’ Event Management studies. Scripts were written and gourmet boxes of delights were specifically designed to tantalise the taste buds and showcase the talents of our amazing students and staff. 

We acknowledge the expertise of teachers Anastasia Cavuoto and Marija Babic for their student guidance and for all the preparation that went into organising the visit.

Invited guests also included Jamie Blowes from Catholic Education South Australia, and College Board Member Jacqui Asser.

Subs In Schools inspiring next-gen engineers

Year 10 students have kicked-off the term with Subs In Schools, a STEM based program allowing students to explore the complexities of maritime engineering and hydrodynamics.
Thanks to mentors Nathaniel, Alec, Paul, Max and Jeremy from Saab Australia, one of our P-Tech industry partners, for stepping into the workshops each week where students are assisted in the build and understanding of the complexities of a Remote Operated Underwater Vehicle (ROV).
It is a privilege to have IT and Engineering mentors from Saab’s Graduate Program supporting the students and our College by sharing their knowledge and encouraging them to explore a STEM career pathway.
