Limelight and Floriade

As a Visual Art’s Teacher at Mount Stromlo High School, I am always looking out for competitions and exhibitions for my talented students to enter. We recently exhibited in the Limelight Exhibition 2015 held at the ANU. This was an amazing opportunity for us to showcase our students best work. Twelve students’ artworks were chosen to enter and they were shown alongside entries from 300 students from 30 ACT public schools. The exhibition included artwork from preschool students all the way through till year 12 students, and showcased photography, sculpture, collage, painting, lino print and mix media works.

Every year I go to Floriade and check out the Gnomes, this year I decided to run an in-school competition and enter as a school group. The students had to submit a design and then if chosen they came in at break times to paint it. Mount Stromlo entered ten Gnomes ranging from sombre, respectful ANZACS to a cheeky little clown, but our most impressive Gnome, a Bi-plane designed and created by Neve Foxcroft brought them all together. I am very proud to announce we won the Bronze Award for the Best School group. Watch out for our entries next year!

World Education Games Term 4 Week 1

The World Education Games is a global online challenge to get all students excited about learning, and to give the top students in all schools an opportunity to see how they measure up against the best in the world. Free entry allows all students to get involved and celebrate their education with equal opportunities.

Just use your Mathletics password.  You can use this link:

The World Education Games takes place across the 13-15 October 2015.

In 2015, for the first time, all three World Education Games events (World Literacy, Math(s) and Science Days) will be open simultaneously for the full span of the Games, rather than consecutively as in previous years.

Only the first 20 games are counted for each student’s Hall of Fame total. These can be earned all in a single day, or spread out across several days. Playing continuously for three days gives no advantage over a student who completes their allocation of three sets of 20 games in a few hours.

Students do not need to compete in all three events if they do not wish. Prizes and awards are given for individual subject events. However to be eligible for the World Education Games multi-event award, students will need to have earned points in all subjects.

Prizes and awards are given for individual subject events. However to be eligible for the World Education Games multi-event award, students will need to have earned points in all subjects.

Here at Mount Stromlo high School, we will run a number of ‘incursions’ to allow students to participate.

Those that complete the 20 games for each subject will be eligible for graduation points and Merits/Bronze Stromlo awards.

See Mr. Grieve in the maths staff room for a permission note to attend an incursion.

All the best for the event.  Go Mount Stromlo!!!
