School Disco

The Stromlo High School SRC is holding a School Disco on Wednesday 13th November (Week 5, Term 4) for all students to attend. The disco will run from 6:00pm until 9:00pm and will be supervised by staff and a security guard will also be present throughout the night.

 

Entry to the disco is only $5 and all money raised from the disco will go towards some exciting new projects around the school next year. The SRC is also running a Canteen during the night and will be selling soft drinks, plenty of chocolate, lots of lollies and other tasty (and nutritious) snacks.

 

We are encouraging all students to attend the disco to support the school, have a good time with their friends and farewell Year 10 in a safe and friendly environment! Students who wish to come to the Disco need to ensure they collect a permission note from their TEAM Teacher, the Front Office or Student Services.

Indonesian Day at the ANU

On Thursday 24th of October, “Bu Ce” (Ms Edwards, the Indonesian teacher at Stromlo) will be taking Indonesian students to an exciting event run by the ANU Faculty of Asian Studies.

Indonesia Day is a free event, open to ANU students as well as secondary school students from the ACT and the surrounding region. It will immerse students in the rich and unique culture that Indonesia has to offer. This year’s event will commence with a presentation by an ex-Indonesian studies student followed by a musical performance. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in various workshops in Indonesian language, music and dance followed by a traditional Indonesian lunch. At the end of the day students will be invited to participate as a group in the traditional Papuan ‘Sarjojo’ dance.

Indonesia Day 2013 is sure to be a fun-filled day that will equip students with a new set of skills and a deeper understanding of our closest Asian neighbour.

Permission notes have been sent home with year 7 Indonesian students – please get them back by Monday 21st or contact Ms Edwards in the English faculty for a new note.

In order to encourage students to engage with social media on the day the organisers of the event would like to publish photos of the students on the College of Asia and the Pacific facebook page. If you would like to give consent for this, please fill out this survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ZGRMZWT.

World Vision 40 Hour Famine Fundraising Results

The World Vision 40 Hour Famine was held at Stromlo High School on Friday 30th August – Sunday 1st September (Week 6, Term 3). It was a fantastic success, with 34 students from participating in the challenge to raise money to help fund the World Vision projects in Malawi, Ethiopia, East Timor, Nepal, Tanzania and Uganda. The 40 Hour Famine was made into a House Competition with each Sports House competing to raise the most money and win a free barbecue, hosted by the SRC.

Oakey won the free barbecue, having raised a grand total of $2499.00! The total amount raised by students at Stromlo High School was an amazing $5986.85, which was more than any other school in South Canberra! This is an amazing effort by Stromlo High School and a real credit to our student leaders, Max Jasinski, Andrew MacMillan and Ruby Whalan who organised and ran the 40 Hour Famine and did a fantastic job at getting students inspired about stopping childhood hunger.
