Last Monday, Year 10 students had the opportunity to attend Start Smart, an award winning program held by the Commonwealth Bank. Start Smart consisted of six different workshops each focusing on a different topic in depth; financial choices, earning, saving, spending, investing and enterprise. Each workshop was an interactive learning experience empowering students to make confident financial decisions. Students found the workshops informative and relevant. Below are some of the feedback received:
“I learnt that as you start your own business, you should start small” Akua A
“I should save 30% of what I earn” Lourel J
“I must get a Tax File Number” Levi G
“I should have a savings account as well as a day-to-day account” Abbey F
“Know your rights before you start a job” Devarsh M
On the 21 November, HSC Drama attended Parramatta Riverside Theatre to see the Verbatim play ‘To Be Honest’. The students had the opportunity to question the cast and director, which assisted them in their own play.
Year 8 finished off their Science study with some fun experiments. Punching pencils through bags full of water, making purple foam and creating towers of molten sugar were all fun experiences. Thanks for a great year, Year 8!
As part of the Year 9 Invictus program, students placed meaningful spaces around school for students and teachers to engage in.
Spaces included the Fence of Improvement; Self Worth; and Reflection Tree. Wellbeing Friday as it was aptly named gave those involved an opportunity to improve and reflect on their wellbeing.
