Year 9 Science Compete in Science IQ Competition
This term, two teams of Year 9 students competed in the Science IQ Competition which was run by the Science Teachers Association of Western Australia and was offered to both National and International Schools.
The competition was based on-line and required the teams of students to answer a set of 12 Science questions within a one-hour period.
Students used their outstanding group work skills to allocate roles to each of the members of the team. Most of the questions required students to research new concepts within the allocated time period. The goal was to complete the test correctly in the shortest period of time.
This term one of our teams placed in the competition. Congratulations Santino Febbo, Tal Shmuel, Jacob Range and Isabella Rosenberg for coming in THIRD PLACE.
A special mention to Maia Hilu, Asher Altschuler, Shaked Cohen and Toni Grolman for coming in SIXTH PLACE.
Thank you to all of the students that competed this year. We look forward to seeing how the Year 7 and Year 8 teams do in the next two terms.

New P&F Fundraiser: Student Led Initiative
The Carmel P&F have a New Fundraising Event, thanks to the thoughtfulness of Gia Ismay, a year 6 Carmel Student, who approached Mrs. Fisher about fundraising idea she wanted to suggest to the P&F. A team of 3 P & F members along with Mrs Fisher met with Gia before the end of term 2 for her to present her proposal. Gia provided a sample of a Personalised Kiddush Wine bottle with art work created by students and placed as a new label over the bottle. All at the meeting were very impressed with Gia’s foundation work, in researching costs of bottles and the cost to make and print the labels.
The P&F have embraced this wonderful idea of selling personalised pieces of art. We feel it is a Perfect project to link the primary and high school in creating a wonderful Shabbos or Yom Tov memento. In keeping with having a responsible view on alcohol we have elected to place labels on Kosher Grape Juice.
So how is this going to work?
Each class or mentor group are being provided with a single page to decorate which will then be converted into a wonderful label.
How much will it cost ?
$12 per bottle OR 12 Tribes Special $120 for 12 bottles (buyer's choice)
How do I order?
Cash & Paper sales
Order forms available at reception, attached in FB / included as part of Kesher notices.
ALL ORDERS CLOSE FRIDAY 18th AUGUST
We are getting close to achieving our $10 000 Target for funds build a covered walkway in the highschool. As Gia brought the idea to the P&F she has been given the recognition of assigning a portion of money raised from this initiative towards a project of her choice. With Gia’s great enthusiasm for art, she is keen to see some of the funds being used in the Visual Arts area.
The P&F Committee & Staff are very excited to work on this Student initiative as it’s a wonderful reflection about helping a child find their voice and grow through this valuable experience. We hope you find a way to support us and the school in working towards improving facilities for all the students.
