Year 9 Japanese students enjoy fun linguistic and social evening

Our Year 9 Japanese language students joined forces with Year 9 students studying Japanese from Marist College Ashgrove to enjoy a delicious feast of gyoza, sushi, karaage chicken and sukiyaki/shabu shabu at Bishamon Japanese Restaurant. The Japanese staff expertly showed students how to cook their one pot dinners, use chopsticks correctly and the language surrounding meal etiquette. A fun linguistic and social evening on the Languages’ calendar!


MSM Writer’s Club

The MSM Writer’s Club celebrated their tenth year on camp at the weekend, exploring the classics, Oliver Twist, Pride and Prejudice and Much Ado About Nothing with Pirates of the Caribbean tossed in for good measure. The girls explored an escape room, a rumour mill, the difficulty of finding missing maps and the skill of Shakespearean insults. They spent time writing, editing and then competing for places and prizes.

Downs and West Community Fundraiser

Our Year 11 students hosted a fun-filled Staff v Students Volleyball fundraiser match at lunchtime on 16 May 2019. All money raised from the entry fees, sausage sizzle, bake sale and rummage sale will go to the Downs and West community. Well done to the staff volleyball team on a narrow win against the students!

Environment Group – Containers for a Change project

A massive thank you from the Environment Group to all staff and students who placed recyclable bottles or ‘containers’ into the yellow bins placed around the College as part of the Environment Group’s ‘Containers for a Change’ project. The bottles were sorted, filling 6 whole bins – a massive step towards slowing down the affects of Climate Change. With 10 cents back per ‘container’, how much money do you think the Environment Group will raise for their Term 2 initiative Downs and West?

Paint the World with your Colours

Over the last two weeks, Year 9s have been busy reflecting on and bringing to life the Year 9, 2019 theme “Paint the world with your colours”. This ties in with their Positive Psychology in Action program which involves the students exploring 6 key units: Positive Self, Positive body, Positive Emotions, Positive Mindset, Positive Directions, and Positive Relationships.

The winning Homeroom is 9C. Congratulations!
