Woodvale Secondary College welcomed Year 6 students enrolled in Year 7 2017 this week at an Orientation Day which included a parent and caregiver tour and activities for students. The day was very successful. The College Transition Program also includes a Parent/Caregiver Information Evening to be held next week and further orientation activities for students to be held at the commencement of the 2017 school year; The Big Days In.
We are excited to be able to add scales now to our dragon. There is one workshop to go before the end of the year. Students will be donating some time at home and school to cut out a range of colourful scales. We might see Elemental come to life before the end of the year - or early next year!
"[Recently] 25 nervous and excited indigenous students [including Jamie M from WSC] with an interest in food and hospitality rolled into the [Margaret River] region - along with their teachers [including Wendy Triplett from WSC] and WA chefs - to spend time exploring [the] region, meeting producers, farmers, fishers and operators...In a bushland setting, youngsters were able to relax, cook and tell stories from home."
The second Workshop to make our dragon saw a flurry of activity. It was great to see the parts taking shape and our dragon growing by the minutes, complete with LED lights attached to his enormous head. Our dragon has been tentatively named Elemental, representing his link to the Chinese elements. Work started on the scales which will be made of soft plastic in a range of colours that will be attached to the rattan frame. Our work continues over the next few weeks.
