On Friday 15th August, sixty-six students from Years 11 and 12, together with nine teachers, journeyed to Mount Buller to spend the day learning to ski and snow-board. Perfect weather, superb snow and  a wonderful team of students and teachers made this one of the happiest school days of the year.

 

For Tuesday, 12th August, SRC students organised the Multicultural Day. This idea was initiated by the SRC last year and has now been embraced as a tradition at our school. There was an assembly in the morning, showcasing student performances such as dances, songs, instrumental music and poem recitals from different cultures in our school. There was also a multicultural display showing special artefacts from the students’ cultures. Students dressed up in their cultural clothes to celebrate their backgrounds and being part of multiculturalism at our school. .

The Year 11 Business Management class ran their own business, selling a variety of different foods from cultures all around the world, as part of their assessment. Students and staff bought food such as cevapis, nachos, wedges, Dutch pancakes, Greek chicken skewers, butter chicken, churros, kebabs and drinks.   SRC 2014

 

 Senior Girls' Table Tennis

On 29th July 2014, the year 11 senior girls’ table tennis team participated in the annual Interschool Table-tennis Zone Finals. Finals were held at the ­­­­MSAC in South Melbourne. There were five schools in total, including MacRobertson (last year’s States Champions), Hampton Park, McKinnon, Lakeside and Carwatha College P-12. At the beginning of the day we were very concerned with the level of professional players in the room. Despite our nerves, we had our first match with MacRob, which didn’t go down too well. Although we lost that first match we held our heads high with determination and at the end of the day we came into second place just losing 1st place to MacRob. We were all very proud of our accomplishment and we know that next year we will try even harder.

Lastly we would like to thank Mr Pieta for always having faith in us, always reassuring us that it isn’t about winning or losing, it’s about having a go and having fun.                    Fidela

International Student Homestays

Carwatha College P-12 is currently looking to expand our team of homestay providers for our International Students. An outline of the responsibilities of a homestay provider are:

  • ensuring that the student has their own bed (they do not have to have their own room) and a place of their own to work and study;
  • overseeing the student’s wellbeing;
  • providing all meals including lunch. 

It is compulsory for all families (everyone in the household over the age of 18 or even frequent residents of the house) to have a current Working With Children Card. The current rate of payment for homestay providers is between $200 and $270 per week.  This may be negotiated depending upon the homestay provided.

If you are interested in the possibility of becoming a member of our homestay team, please contact Lynne Ramsay at the college for full details and an application form.
