Principals Message - Westport Campus


Massive shout out to Sasha Davies (Year 9) who was successful in gaining a placement in the State Drama Festival. A further twelve Drama students and two Dance students have also been selected to perform in this year’s School Spectacular. This event will be performed in Sydney in November. Fantastic stuff.

Trial exams have concluded for our Year 12 students. The process will give the students and their teachers good feedback as to where their learning sits as they approach the HSC in October. Many students have completed the practical component of their courses.

Today is Daffodil Day. The WASCAL students from the Westport Campus will be visiting our partnership primary schools, including Kendal to deliver daffodils. These outstanding students will deliver more than 1400 daffodils collectively to those schools. Another super community effort from our community.

The Science Faculty coordinated Hastings Valley Science Fair was a great showcase of everything science. The event displayed the work of our Year 8 students’ Techno Museum Tasks, which explore the question “Is everything better now than it used to be?” This is based on a task from Flinders University – The Australian Science and Mathematics School. Year 10 also displayed their Individual Research Projects in which students chose science investigations based on their individual interests and abilities. Thank you to Port Macquarie Panthers for hosting this great event.

Mariah McCleery has been successful in gaining a place at the National Youth Science Forum. The process of being nominated involves a very extensive nomination and interview process. Mariah is a worthy recipient of this placement after performing at an excellent level throughout the selection process. Well done Mariah.

A reminder that there will be a parent-teacher evening on 11 September 2018. Parents will be able to book teachers interviews through the Parent Portal on SENTRAL. If you do not have family access to the Parent Portal, please contact me, and I will arrange for you to be given access.

Warm regards
