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.

Ice Factor 2021

Ice Factor is an important initiative at our school! Not only does it enable students to participate in a unique Ice Hockey program – the only one in the Southern Hemisphere – that aims to build skills in a fast paced and action packed sport, but it’s an opportunity to work as a team, build resilience, problem solving and leadership capabilities.

The Palms

Native Australian Animals are amazing

The Animals Anonymous organisation visited students in The Palms who were lucky enough to learn about a whole range of our native furry friends.

Teigan and Ryan will use the knowledge gained in their Stage 2 studies and the hands on experience resulted in lots of learning as well as fun!

Foundation Camp 2021

Happy campers!

Foundation students had fun and made new connections at the city based Foundation Camp. Students stay at the Adelaide Shores camp ground and have a range of new experiences that take them outside of their comfort zones. The camp ensures the transition to secondary school at Findon High School is a positive experience and sets students up for a successful year.

Our annual Splash carnival is always a highlight of the Term 1 calendar and gets our Foundation and Intermediate students moving, working together in teams as they compete for the Splash Shield.
