R U OK 2018

A fantastic annual tradition took place a few weeks back. Its fast becoming one of our favourite days of the year and to celebrate, our amazing Wellbeing Team went all out once again!

R U OK? Day is a national day of action held annually to encourage and empower all people to regularly and meaningfully ask ‘are you ok?’ to support those struggling with life, with the encouragement to all that a conversation can change a life.

At WPSC our student leaders promote the message of positive mental health and inform young people, staff and our broader school community of how to seek help and access support services.

40th Celebration!

Celebrating 40 years of education!

It was plainly obvious to see the impact these lovely students had on their new Australian friends, with lots of tissues needed at the bus as they set off.

They will all be missed greatly and we hope they will keep in contact with their host families.

THE SKY’S NOT THE LIMIT

Since finishing Year 12 in 2005 a lot has happened. Firstly after all the hard work, effort and support through school, I got the result I needed and scored my place at university doing Aerospace and Business. My goal for this course all started in Year 10 and my love for aircraft a long time before that. At university I was told to embrace everything which I did in strides. Made lots of new friends, learnt all the new topics and went to all the new parties, highlighted clearly with the participation in Red Bull Paper Wings tournament placing third in Australia for distance with a paper plane.

Professionally however it has been even a bigger journey. The skills I learnt at school and passion I have for my work have taken me globally. From structural analysis work with the European Space Agency in Austria to Airline Survey work in Japan. Now I hold a prominent position in a local aviation firm specialising in aircraft fit-outs for the likes of Ambulance and Police Agencies throughout Australia, the federal police agencies and various international operators throughout the Asia Pacific region. Highlights including implementation of new stretcher systems to flight testing with hi-tech surveillance equipment, without being cliché, the sky’s not the limit.

Year 9 Cafe Skills

Our Year 9 Café Studies class were able to showcase their new skills to family and friends they had invited to a luncheon this week. The event was a celebration of the skills they had learnt through out the semester, from cooking and serving a meal, customer service, coffee and cold beverage making and serving.

It was an absolute joy and honour working with these young adults and watch them work together as a team, the event was sensational. Ms Sheridan

Project 9 at Queen Victoria Market

Project 9 students visited the Queen Victoria Market last week to look at small businesses. While they were at lunch, Reyce thought he’d entertain the passers-by and diners. Reyce and his pianist talents were certainly a hit! #westernportsc #piano #pianist #project9#queenvictoriamarket
