Operation XLR8

After hours of planning and fundraising, a group of Year 10 and 11 students took part in the Operation XLR8 obstacle course in Baldivis on 8 August. When we arrived at the site, we were warmly welcomed by the Baldivis staff. Ted Blackshaw, the owner of Operation XLR8, gave the students an inspirational speech, detailing his life in the army and encouraging us all to become our best selves. Following this, Mr Blackshaw guided the group through stretches to prepare our bodies for the obstacle course. We then went through a quick demo before commencing the course. The obstacle course was gruelling – it tested every fibre of our bodies and challenged our minds to persevere through the physical fatigue. We completed two laps of this course before having a relay competition where we were split into four groups. This was the last activity we completed before we headed back to school and the day concluded.

Salvation Army Sleeping Bag Drive: Year 8 CSL

On Wednesday this week our Year 8 students were given an excellent presentation on homelessness in Australia by Mr Darren Reynolds from the Salvation Army.

Aligned with their Religious Education topic where they are learning the importance of giving to others, our Year 8s gained an understanding of who is homeless and why they became homeless. Students were suprised and dismayed to learn that although indigenous Australians make up only 3% of our national population, they make up 25% of our total percentage of homeless.

In a month students will be given the opportunity to see the work the Salvation Army do in Northbridge. We are calling all families of Year 8 students to please consider making a donation of one sleeping bag which we will provide the Salvation Army so that the homeless can be less cold this winter.
