Introducing the Djinda Sports Centre

Thursday 14 May was a significant day for everyone at St James’ Anglican School in Alkimos, Western Australia. The School gymnasium received its formal signage and will forever be known as the Djinda Sports Centre.

Head start for new senior system at Kimberley College

Year 10 at Kimberley College is undergoing changes to better serve as a transition year between middle school, senior school and the future. Kimberley College, a school in Carbook that opts out of formalised testing until senior school, will keep its successful multi-graded primary and middle school classes but make adjustments to the structure of Year 10 to introduce students to the workflow, assessment pattern, and nature of testing of Year 11 and 12. The changes are in response to the new QCAA system that replaces Queensland’s former OP grading.

A New Entrepreneur Program for Carmel School

Following the decision to introduce a new entrepreneur program at Carmel, we set about investigating the best of the best currently available. After a period of intensive research our Principal, Shula Lazar, headed to the USA to find out more about her preferred option: the Uncharted Learning course.

The task seemed simple enough (NOT!): uncover the best high school entrepreneurship program in the world and work out how to offer this program at Carmel.

Honestly, I didn't know much about entrepreneurship, but I do know about education. Like all the successful teaching implemented here at Carmel, I knew the program needed to be explicit, comprehensive, knowledge-based and experience enhanced.

A New Spiritual Heart of Wesley College

For the first time, Wesley College’s Glen Waverley Campus will feature a dedicated Chapel, at the heart of the campus, within a new multi-storey student centre, The Drennen Centre. 

The Chapel is especially meaningful to Ms Ev Kreppert, a long-serving former Wesley teacher, who made the first donation in 2008 for a spiritual meeting point for students and staff from all religious backgrounds to congregate.

‘I told Helen Drennen at the time that the campus would not be complete without a chapel and so I made an initial donation to assist the future funding of the chapel.’ Ev Kreppert said.
