Student Achievements
This term we have witnessed the Year 9 students working extremely hard to achieve their goals and receiving their just rewards. A key project for the term was to create a World War 1 monument that Mr Brockhus had set as a challenge:

I am asking you to create a modern monument to World War 1 over the course of the next few weeks. You will decide on the form of this monument and I encourage you to use any resource that is available to you either here at school or out in the community. You will work with your teachers to gather more information on the process, but I will choose the monument that best fits our community and will display it in the school during a time of Remembrance.

I am entrusting this important task to you. Your monument will inform and educate future generations of students so we can all learn from the events of the past.

And so, the Year 9 students worked with great gusto to accept Mr Brockhus’ challenge, coming up with a huge variety of monuments from paintings, sculptures, video holograms and magnificent remembrance walls.

Holiday Work
Term three, will see the students studying the novel Tomorrow, When the War Began as their English text. In this unit, students will be analyzing and creating text.

Year 9 students will be required to read the novel over the holiday break and complete a character analysis.

Students are asked to take the opportunity to begin reading the novel as soon as possible. Should students have any questions or concerns, they are asked to contact their English teacher.
