Senior School Report (August 15, 2013)

This week marked week 5 and the half-way point of term 3. Senior students were presented to by Jess, a representative of the Wellington Youth council. Jess explained to the senior cohort what the youth council was about, her experiences as a member for the past three years and how students aged from 12-25 can apply to become a member.

Hopefully next year will see one of our students representing Yarram on the Youth Council!

Students were reminded about the Courage to Care Excursion, which is not only useful for students completing English and History, it is also a valuable workshop for student personal development.

As part of the Schools Access Monash (SAM) program, Monash University has generously offered to fund a limited number of tickets for our VCE students to participate in the Access Education end of year revision lectures. In addition to the limited number of free tickets, Monash will offer additional tickets ordered by YSC at the discounted price of $27 (compared to the full price of $42 per ticket.)

All Senior VCE students were strongly encouraged to take a look at the enrolment forms and to go and see Miss Demaria or Ms Kerrison if they are interested in attending a workshop at Monash Gippsland, or any other University Campus listed as offering workshops.

There was also a lot of praise given out to the students who we heard the night before on 3Mfm! If you missed the program, but would like to hear it, 3Mfm is providing Yarram Secondary College with a copy of the program. It will be archived in the Library very soon.

The YSC radio stars were:

Lewis McQueen, Shauna Miller, Nadine Lucas, Shantaz Gregson, Jed Smith, Suzie Mumford, Ashlee Elliott, Kaitlin McDonald, Sam Thomas, Emma Gay, Dylan Skaratt, Holly Jonston, Ebony Scott & David McKeane.

All students who were involved with the radio program were invited for a ‘lucky dip’ in the prize bin and will receive an acknowledgement by post.

Speaking of lucky dip…

Congratulations to the following Frequent Fliers who all ‘cashed’ in their cards this morning for a lucky (or not-so-lucky) dip:

Year 11:
Liam Yodgee, Adam Moore and Luke McKeane

Congratulations also to Matthew Lambrick and Trinity Andrews who received a ‘participation’ and ‘credit’ in the Big Science Competition.

Each of these students was allowed a ‘lucky dip’ in the prize bin and received a certificate on the day.
