Jamie receives her award

Jamie receives her award with teacher Susan Peachey

Last Friday, Jamie Clayden (yr 9) received an Excellence in School Sport Award at a presentation at the ACT Legislative Assembly. She was one of only 8 students across all ACT schools and year levels to receive the prestigious award.

Jamie’s sporting achievements this year have been extensive, including representing the ACT in the under 15’s Schoolgirls Netball and Volleyball teams at nationals. Having demonstrated her tenacity and exceptional skills during the National Schools Volleyball tournament, Jamie earned the privilege of being named in the Honorary Australian School Girls Volleyball team.

At school, Jamie has competed in volleyball, netball, touch football, softball, cricket, basketball, water polo, AFL, cross country, athletics and swimming. I think we can all agree that this was a very well deserved award. Well done Jamie!

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.

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.
