Its Yr 9 Special Education Block (SEB) Wellbeing Seminar - A day of interactive learning exploring themes associated with; safer party, risk management and making smart and decisions to promote personal and community health and safety.
The students take part in a seminar designed to enable them to consider the evidence about young people and risk taking and then apply health promoting behaviours.
We are most fortunate to have MBF, Paramedics and rescue teams work with our students to show them some of the realities associated with risk taking behaviours.
This month is especially important in regards to climate change as we prepare for the Paris Climate talks on Nov 30th to 11th of December. The Catholic Church has been a very big supporter of a movement towards a green future which is underpinned by the latest encyclical by Pope Francis titled "Laudato Si". This piece of writing focuses on God's call to come into relationship with him and his creation. To help demonstrate your commitment to this cause we'd love for you to come a climate change march. It's happening this Friday, leaving from the State Library at 5.30pm. If you are interested in participating please reply to: email@example.com.
Last night was the School of Rock - Battle of the Band at EV's Youth Centre, Croydon. Aquinas won the kindly donated a Laney Guitar Amp valued at $1000 from Hans Music Spot (Croydon Main Street) for being the school with the most support on the night. Well done to the Infamy boys for their performance and to the Aquinas parents, staff and students for their support.
The Ozobot has arrived at Aquinas ready for the students in the Makerspace to program. Ozobot is a small robot that helps people learn about simple code language and deductive reasoning using Blockly as the code to program it. The Ozobot is programmed to follow black, red, green, and blue paths that control its movement and speed in different directions. It works on tablets as well as coloured paper.
