Last week some of our Performing Arts students participated in the annual Whyalla Combined Primary Schools Choir as Assisting Artists. The performance was held over two nights at the Middleback Theatre. The choir worked hard, performing 13 songs on both nights, and were grateful for the breaks provided by our student performers. Our students provided two items for the program: a small ensemble made up of year 12 students Rosella (vocals), Nicole (acoustic guitar) and Rdrene (electric guitar) who performed “Ako Na Lung” by Zia Quizon. This featured lyrics in both English and Tagalog (the language of the Philippines). Daelyn from year 10 performed “Just the Two of Us” by Bill Withers, accompanied by teacher Rhiannon Howell on the piano. Both performances were very well received and the students displayed professional and excellent behaviour. 😊 ... See MoreSee Less
Girls from years 7, 8 and 9 competed in a round robin tournament of football last week. They won their minor rounds, defeating Samaritan (47-0), Caritas (28-3) and Port Augusta (76-6) and went straight through to the grand final, again defeating Caritas (36-2) and finished the day as undefeated premiers. Throughout their 4 games, they only conceded 1 goal, which is an amazing effort. All the girls should be very proud of their efforts, with each girl playing a pivotal role every game. Whether it was applying lots of pressure in the backlines, providing plenty of run through the middle, or creating chaos and kicking a few goals up forward, they all played amazingly. A shout out to Hanna who kicked 6 goals against Samaritan and Alyssa who kicked 5 goals against Port Augusta. 🏉😁 ... See MoreSee Less
Throughout term 3, students in our flexible program have been building benches for the Middleback Country Fire Service (CFS) Brigade. As a thank you for their hard work, students visited the facility to undertake a tour, learn about the equipment that volunteer firefighters use and see their benches in use!
Some students are already familiar with the facility because they are volunteer cadets. For anyone interested in learning more about the CFS, cadet training occurs every Wednesday during the school term from 5.30pm to 6.45pm at the SES depot (41 Keith Street) or email the cadet coordinator Mr Gardiner who is also a teacher at Whyalla Secondary College Alistair.Gardiner@sacfsvolunteer.org.au ...

The members of Middleback CFS are really appreciative of the benches they have received and those that are still being built. Members also appreciate the donations that they have received from the Whyalla community, including the staff of Whyalla Secondary College to fund the new lockers for the station.
