The Living Kaurna Cultural Centre

Over eons of time, the Kaurna people of the Adelaide Plains have gathered at Warriparinga. The Living Kaurna Cultural Centre was built here to ensure that Kaurna culture, and the Dreaming Story of the Land, is passed on from generation to generation.

 

Students from Findon High School visited and gathered so much new knowledge from our tour guide, Tom.

 

From bush-tucker, to scar trees, to fish traps to bio-chemistry, the knowledge of the Kaurna people is relevant and so important in understanding the history of the place that we call home.

 

The students will use this knowledge to create a range of texts to teach a lesson that always was and always has been, important. 

Youth Music Night at the Woodville Town Hall

These superstars absolutely rocked at the Youth Music Night! 

 

The night kicked off with some amazing performances from our school’s very own Greg, Jordan, Courtney & Jasmine. 

 

Rock band Lola got things pumping, followed by hip hop extraordinaire Akeim who took to the stage and got us vibing.

 

The show continued with Sarah stunning the audience with her amazing vocals, followed up by a killer performance from Hayley and Taylaa closing the show. 

 

Great job to all involved and huge thanks to the staff at The Brocas for your endless support of our school. 

The Findon Fishos bagged an impressive catch out on our local waters!

It was a busy week, preparing equipment, checking the safety gear and consulting tide and weather information but it all paid off when they hooked a few Leatherjackets off Marino and Brighton.

 

They even brought them back gutted, filleted and ready for the Outdoor Fishing Club to cook up on the BBQ.

 

What a day of learning our natural environment provided and what a great way Clubs is, to harness it!

Primary Showcase Superstars

The dancers, leaders, artists, singers, & fishers of Findon High School headed off to Woodville Gardens, Challa Gardens and Seaton Park Primary Schools to showcase their skills!

They did a brilliant job sharing some of the best bits of Findon High School and the Year 5/6 audiences had a blast!

Well done to our Showcase team. They are developing as leaders and are having lots of fun working together in the process.

Student Voice

Student voice is powerful in enacting change and it is harnessed through the Student Pillars Program.

The program enables students to show leadership around literacy and numeracy improvement strategies. They spent the day at the Torrens Rowing Club, developing strategies for improved student outcomes.

I Love Coffee

‘I Love Coffee’ is Findon High School’s latest initiative and today the enterprise served up steaming cups of deliciousness for the families who joined our Principal’s Tours. Check it out!

Kaurna Boomerang star, Stacia heads off to Darwin

Stacia Sumner is passionate about Ice Hockey and her dedication to the sport was captured in the Advertiser! She’s part of the Ice Factor Program and a proud Findon Falcon but not only that, she’s also part of the Kaurna Boomerangs, Australia’s only Indigenous Ice Hockey team. The Boomerangs headed off to Darwin late last term, to play in an invitational tournament called ‘Dry Ice’. We’re all so proud of Stacia and everything she’s achieved both on the ice and off. Fly high, Boomerangs!

Step back in time!

Our Graduate 2 English students undertook historical research at the Maritime Museum and Adelaide Gaol. Their findings will inform historical creative writing pieces, ensuring they are authentic and engaging.

Cutting Edge 2021

Cutting Edge is a Youth engagement program designed to develop technical and transversal skills critical for success into the 21st century. This Semester the group are creating some grandstand seating, perfect for those action packed handball games played at lunchtimes. Students involved in Cutting Edge will reflect upon the skills they have learnt each week and use this reflection to work towards their personal goals.

Panda

Panda, the Learning Hub therapy cat, made lots of new friends during his first visit to our school. He’ll be visiting weekly and if today is anything to go by his presence will benefit each and every student who utilities the space in terms of emotional regulation and empathy building.

National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence

Bullying, NO WAY!

To shine a light on the damaging impacts of bullying, every student in our school community took a stand against the problem, making a personal commitment to action to tackle the problem, displaying their action visually in our front foyer. The postcard design is the work of Graduate 1 student, Angela Vellotti who was a winner of a City of Charles Sturt design competition in 2021.

Harmony Day 2021

During Harmony Week and our school community worked together harmoniously to create a piece of shared art that reflects this year’s theme: ‘Everyone Belongs’.

This jigsaw puzzle mural backdrop was created by Graduate 2 student, India and by the end of the week, it was covered with words and drawings symbolic of individual identity.

This art tells a story of how many unique individuals can fit together and feel like they truly belong.

Sports Day 2021!

Sports Day 2021 was an action packed, colourful, fun-filled event!

A huge congratulations to Hoffmann, who fought hard, taking home the shield for the second year running.

 

The Hoffmann House Captains provided inspirational leadership, spurring every Hoffman competitor on and igniting the support of all the spectators. Well done to Blight and Flynn who demonstrated impressive sportsmanship and a fighting spirit, right to the end.
