Parenting Tip of the Month

Dealing with Emotions

Sometimes when things don’t go their way teenagers can become quite emotional. If you notice your teenager is upset you can help them by:

  • Stop what you are doing and pay attention
  • Listen and stay silent
  • Summarise what you heard and check that you’ve got it right
  • Acknowledge and name the feeling or emotion
  • Reassure your teenager that it’s okay to feel this way
  • Don’t try and solve the problem yet – allow time for everyone to calm down first

Year 9 Academic Enrichment Science Excursion to Harry Perkins Institute BioDiscovery Centre

Year 9 Academic Enrichment Science Excursion to Harry Perkins Institute BioDiscovery Centre

On Monday 5 December the Year 9 Science AE class visited the BioDiscovery Centre at the Harry Perkins Institute. Students had the opportunity to enrich their classroom studies on Biology by working with leading medical researchers. They were highly engaged in laboratory techniques involved in diagnosing diabetes, utilising technology (including glucose meters, an ELIZA protocol and spectrophotometry) to determine glucose and insulin levels in patient samples. Using the digital technologies they analysed patient samples and arrived at possible treatment plans. Students gained an insight into medical research as a future career path and had a tour of the world renowned research facilities.

Elemental Scales – WSC Dragon is taking shape!

Elemental Scales – WSC Dragon is taking shape!

Our fourth workshop on 8 December saw us 'dressing' Elemental with scales - a huge task, given he is yet to be fully measured in length (though it seems he will be over 8 metres long). The scales, made of colourful soft plastic, are to cover his rattan structure and will be beautifully set to life with lights and movement for the City of Joondalup Display in early April, before being displayed at the College.
