Welcome to Term 2! 

Upcoming Events for our Team.
  • Week 7 Term 2 – Reconciliation Week. We will be celebrating Reconciliation week, and have many hands helping behind the scenes to bring it all together. There will be the usual games, arts and crafts on the grass near T block. We will be running the colouring competition again, with some great prizes to be won.
  • Defensive driving course – held in June. If there are any students wanting to participate, please come and see Tracy and put your name down. There are only 5 spaces left.
  • Preqip notes for Year 10 students are going home. Please keep an eye out for information. 

This term, our Tiddas group are participating in Tucka Time, cooking up some delicious recipes to take home. They will complete the program over 10 weeks having fun experiences in the kitchen, but also learning valuable nutritional and life skills that they will be able to use at home.

The Royal Australian Airforce are offering an Indigenous Youth Program for young men and women (15 – 18 years) who are interested in learning more about career pathways in the Royal Australian Air force.

It will be held at RAAF Base Townsville on 26 – 28 September 2023.
This is a residential placement, meaning the students will be accommodated overnight in Service Accommodation at RAAF Base Townsville for the duration of the placement, and all meals are included. Please see Tracy if you are interested or would like further information.
