Out of this World Parade
Amazing costumes reflected our students' love of books and reading at our annual Primary Book Week Book Parade. Imagination was celebrated on Wednesday 19 May, with an abundance of martians, superheroes, planets and astronauts as well as other favourite book characters. It was also wonderful to be able to celebrate with parents again. We love our vibrant College community.
Planting for the Future
As part of their Tabitha program, a group of Year 11 and 12 students and Year 10 student Hayden Comber have begun planting thousands of trees as part of a Woodland corridor in Landcare's Creating Canopies scheme. The ongoing project aims to restablish a corridor of Cumberland Plain Woodland at the back of the College's 42 acre property. Cumberland Woodland ecological communities were once extensive across Western Sydney and the Sydney Basin, but are now considered critically endangered by both the NSW and Commonwealth Government. The area is hoped to provide habitat for many endangered species of native flora and fauna including the critically endangered Swift Parrot. It also provides an opportunity for students over the coming years to learn more about volunteering, the environment and sustainability, as well many enhanced curriculum learning opportunities across Primary and Secondary schools. Future activities as part of the project will be creating bee hotels and perspex frog hides for counting the frogs that live on the College property.
