The Mont 24 Hour Race

Ruby Wilson and Mitch Whitby from Mount Stromlo High competed in the Mont 24 hr Mountain Bike Race over the weekend. They both did really well and their team came second place in the Mixed Young Guns category. A great effort and achievement for their team!

The Science block was filled with posters and demonstrations, and a constant stream of parents and staff engaged with students as they happily and expertly explained their individual experiments.

A big congratulations to the Science faculty on a wonderful showcase of learning and engagement.

Community Partnerships

Netball3Netball2 Netball1On Friday 17th October, 7 students from years 9 and 10 travelled to Boorowa to serve as referees and mentors to 6 teams of netballers from Chapman Primary School.

The students were asked by the primary school to volunteer their time, which they happily did. The team left Canberra at 6:30am and did not return until 5pm and officiated 6 games each over the day.

The feedback from the Chapman Primary and the parents who attended on the day was extremely positive. There are already plans to continue this partnership next year after such a successful day.

The girls will be formally thanked by the Chapman Primary students at their assembly in Week 4.

Scientific Investigations Invitation

Parents and Guardians,

You are invited to the Year 7 Science Investigations Exhibition evening on Tuesday the 28th of October. The evening will commence at 4pm and continue until 6pm, and will be held in the corridors of the Science block at Mount Stromlo High School.

Students have been working hard on investigating a variety of different scientific phenomenon and are putting together presentations to share with the wider school community about their findings.

Whilst it is not a requirement to attend, yr 7 students and their families are encouraged to take this opportunity to explore the topics they have been investigating in Science this semester and join in celebrating their success.

If you have already paid for your ticket, please contact Melissa Wales at the Finance Office for a refund or you can request to divert the money to another excursion.
