I am part of a male hip hop crew called STEPZ. We have performed together as a crew for the last 4 years. Last month, I travelled to Pasadena USA to compete with my hip hop crew to represent Australia in the World of Dance 2017 competition. Our dance performance placed 4th in the world out of 27 crews. There were 30 countries represented at this competition. It was an incredible moment and one I will never forget.

On the 15th June my team and I (accompanied by Mr Howard and Ms Hankinson) played goalball.

Goalball is a sport that is played in the Paralympics by players who can’t see. It can also be played by many people such as people who don’t have any issues in their body or people who just like to play. It is a worldwide sport for many countries and many people to enjoy.

We drove to netball central at Sydney Olympic park to play goalball against schools across NSW.

Last term 7A completed a wonderful, enriching unit of work written by Ms Yong and delivered by Ms Bonis on “Heroes”. The objective was to expand understanding of the concept of heroes and apply this to real life contexts. The unit explored what it means to be a hero through the film medium, with close analysis of the film Zootopia. Students analysed the filmic features, but also went beyond this examining a range of heroes through history and in our everyday lives. This culminated in the appreciation of how we can all advocate for change in our worlds.

Last term, a group of year nine and ten boys participated in the AFL skills program. The program was run by the AFL (Sydney Swans) and supported by Western Suburbs Junior Australian Football Club. The program took place during period four Tuesdays for five weeks on the Western grass.

Over the course of five weeks, we learnt and developed different skills such as kicking, handpassing, marking and evading. We did so using drills, competitions and games, incorporating skills that we had learnt.

The skills we learnt are beneficial, providing us with necessary skills to play AFL for a local club or even in other sports.

How can parents help during stressful assessment times?

The second semester often heralds blocks of examinations or assessments for students. Some students cope well with the pressure and stress while others find it overwhelming. Of course, the more prepared students are, the less stress they are likely to experience. Encourage students to start their preparation for examinations and assessments early, in particular their study notes. If your student has examination blocks this semester, these tips will help you provide the support they need.
