Equine Cross Country Course


St Paul's Equine students are busy planning and working at the school's Cross Country Course, in preparation for the up and coming Cross Country assessments for Year 9, 10, 11 and 12 Equine Students.

The course is looking fantastic, thanks to the help of the dedicated Equine Team and the lovely winter rains we have received. The students have been training hard each week this term in preparation for this assessment and we wish them all the best. 


Year 9 Students Hit The Slopes


Last week a group of eager Year 9 students hit the ski slopes early for their first time skiing or snowboarding.

With an early morning start they traveled to Falls Creek with Ms Barber, Mr Wellington and Mr Hartshorn on the school bus ready for a day of adventure.

It was a beautiful day with blue skies and not a breath of wind as persistence and determination paid off as the students enjoyed the snow experience.  Many laughs were had, skills learnt and memories made throughout the day.

Well done to everyone for a fantastic effort!

SOD Turning Ceremony for New Learning Centre


Today St. Paul's College celebrated a Sod Turning Ceremony to start the construction of The Flexi Learning Centre.  This is an important and significant milestone in the 69 years of providing education within the Greater Hume Shire and across Australia.

We welcomed The Hon. Sussan Ley, Federal Member for Farrer and Cr. Heather Wilton, Mayor of Greater Hume Shire Council to construction site.

This new building will be a welcome addition to the current growth we are seeing and the future needs of the College as we continue to grow and implement innovative teaching methods to deliver the best possible education for our students at St Paul's.

We acknowledge the considerable contribution of the Commonwealth Government towards the funding of the building, of which has made this project possible. 

The building will be completed in December of this year ready for the start of 2018 when the College Community will celebrate 70 years of education. 

We are excited to have signed the contract for this building with Premier Building and Construction (PBC) who recently received five Awards for projects completed. We look forward to working with PBC to complete this project on time and within budget.

 

Partnership Day with St Paul's Henty

St Paul's College warmly welcomed St Paul's Henty to our first Partnership Day.

This is a new initiative between the two schools to support, offer a wider curriculum, utilise our facilities and teaching staff.  It is also a wonderful opportunity for the College students to interact and serve another school.

Thirty six students and four teachers attended the day and joined the College in Chapel Devotion, Community Garden, PE and Science Students.

Visits will be each month and we look forward to the next Partnership Day in August!

School Based Apprentice & Traineeship

The College community congratulates our Year 11 Student, Maddisen Ward from Cooma who has secured a School Based Apprentice & Traineeship (SBAT's) at Kotzur - our local design and manufacturing plant of bulk handling and storage facilities in Walla Walla.

Here is an extract from an interview with Maddisen about her Traineeship.

What is the qualification that you receive from completing the SBAT?
At the end of my course I will have obtained a Certificate II in Engineering. Along with this, I'll also complete my HSC ATAR and a Certificate II in Primary Industries.

What is involved with SBAT and what are your duties within the workplace?
My SBAT involves going to work at Kotzurs one day a week.  Within my work place, I weld and construct components of silos.  Working within the team, components is made based off the drawing specification to build a silo.  As each week goes by, I am engaged in different parts of the process.

Wool & Sheep on Show

A group of enthusiastic Agriculture students represented the College at the recent Holbrook Sheep & Wool Fair - with sterling results!

This three day event is designed to showcase the industry and allow students from Agriculture Schools to learn and compete against other schools in this discipline.

Several workshops were  improving the students ability to handle livestock in a show scenario, judge and assess sheep and even how to train a working dog!  Students also competed in the School's Competition with great success - taking 1st Place in the Ram Section and 2nd Place in the Ewe Competition.  In addition, the Colleges' pair of ewes finished 2nd and our group of two ewes and ram placed 2nd Place.

On the last day the students started the morning leading our sheep in the White Suffolk section winning the White Suffolk Ram and Ewe as well as Reserve Champion Ewe on the day.  

Judging is always very popular event and this year the College dominated with Will Kosh, Chelsea Rankmore and Aliah McDonnell all taking home ribbons - Will winning 1st Place in the Meat Sheep Judging and Aliah with 3rd place.

A great effort by our students and the organisers of the event.
