Our Year 10 Engineering students took on the challenge of creating prosthetic hands using materials from around the house during their recent period of teacher-directed online learning. Hear about their ingenious approaches to this project, and how Engineering has developed their creativity, collaboration skills and problem-solving ability.
The Simple Things
This week’s podcast is a little different to usual. Instead of hearing from one or two members of our community, we asked a whole range of people, from our younger students to our staff members, what they cherished most about spending time at home over the school holidays. Listen in to hear about how they made the most of having more time to enjoy the best—and often most simple—things in life, such as spending time with family or learning a new skill.
Finding Her Voice
Year 10 student Savannah was selected from more than 1000 applicants to take part in Australia’s most prestigious junior public-speaking competition, the United Nations Youth Voice National Finals.
Savannah is a determined individual, who credits a lot of her success to hours of research and rehearsals with her family. Here, she discusses her passion for giving speeches, exploring complex topics and working towards her ultimate goal of serving others as a leader.
