3C9 on Ice

The 3C9 mixed challenge groups headed to the Medibank Icehouse and got their skates on. A great time was had by all, some impressive tumbles and even speed skating. Everyone ventured out of their comfort zones, from beginners to expert. Thanks to the Icehouse team too for the lesson.

Horizon Program Expo

This term has flown, and today was the culmination of the hard work from Years 9 A and B. They have spent Term 1 at the Beaumaris campus developing skills through the completion of a major extended research project. The topics were wide and varied and presented to an audience comprised of teachers, Year 8 and 9 students and parents. The students had to explain their research and their findings, answering questions and presenting to the audience as they wandered through talking to them.

Looking forward to 9 E and F joining us next term and sharing their exciting projects as they develop.

 

 

FIFTY TWO STUDENTS MEET THE CHALLENGE.

Congratulations to the 52 Beaumaris students who completed the 2013 Premiers’ Reading Challenge. Students in Years 7,8,9 and 10 read at least 15 books to meet the requirements of the Challenge. Students frequently recommended books to each other and read widely, often choosing a genre they had not attempted previously. Celebrations were held in the Library where students were presented with their certificates and then enjoyed a morning tea.
