Creche
Today our year 11 and 12 AHEAD students hosted their first creche for 2024. Students were required to complete First Aid training and have been looking at child development milestones within their lessons to prepare. Invitations went out to parents and members of the community to help support our students in developing their skills. It was a very successful day and they look forward to continuing to host these events. The creche was held in our theatre and was catered by our CHAT Café. Our year 11 and 12 CHAT students have been developing their menu over term 1 to be able to facilitate this event. 👶

DAME ROMA MITCHELL 2024 SCHOLARSHIPS

Whyalla Secondary College is proud to announce that Sofie has been awarded a Dame Roma Mitchell Scholarship in 2024. 🎉

Below is part of the statement that was read at the ceremony.
“Sofie is an extremely diligent and goal orientated student with a career aspiration to work within the Hospitality field or make Aboriginal art. Her ambition is to further study an Art degree at University as well as work within the Hospitality field. Her passion and inspiration to pursue this career stems from her wanting to express her stories and feelings through art. Sofie will be completing our Cooking Hospitality and Tourism program in 2024, which tailors learning to reflect pathways. Sofie will also be undertaking a certificate II in Kitchen Operations throughout year 11 and 12. Throughout doing this program at our site, Sofie will get her SACE and the opportunity to get an ATAR as well. Sofie is already Barista trained and has done work experience at a local cafe in Whyalla which ended in part time work for her outside of school. Sofie’s passion for Aboriginal art shows through her work as they are such moving stories that she creates. Sofie already has many of her art designs on a tram in Adelaide, on the back of guernseys and on banners. There is no doubt that Sofie’s talent and passion towards Indigenous art will promote her to be successful within her Arts degree in the near future.”

Sofie’s hard work throughout the last 2 years has been a testament to her winning this scholarship. We are incredibly proud of you Sofie, we are excited to continue watch you succeed. 🤩

On Friday 10th of May, Whyalla Secondary College participated in the H2GP (Horizon Hydrogen Grand Prix) race in Adelaide Findon High School

Miss Kober and Mr. Jackman took 10 students that were split into 2 teams to compete in the race. The race was a 4-hour endurance race that involved the students creating and maintaining a hydrogen powered remote control race car. Students have been working on the car throughout the semester to modify the vehicle and prepare for the race. The students worked effectively to repair their car during the race. Unfortunately, they did not come home with the win but they did get one of the fastest lap times for the whole event. Well done to everyone involved, we are very proud! 🤩

We would like to thank our sponsors GFG Foundation Whyalla for their ongoing support before and during the race. 🎉

Congratulations to Findon Technical College on winning the race. 🏆

Recently, the year 8-10 WSC Shooting Stars girls participated in their annual leadership camp to Adelaide. The girls participated in leadership skill activities, tree top climbing, BOUNCE, visited the Adelaide Zoo, watched the Indigenous round football game, and had the opportunity to visit the BHP and GFG offices to talk about job opportunities.

They can’t wait for their next camp 😊
