POLICE VISIT a huge success
Last Monday staff from Bridgetown Police Station spoke with students in years 8 and 9. The success of these talks was immense. Students in years 7 and 10 have since requested similar talks for their year groups as awareness of the content spread through the school community and was valued by staff and students alike.
I’d like to take this opportunity to wish the Country Week teams, captains and coordinator, all the best for Country Week. This type of event takes a great deal of planning in the lead up to departure, both in terms of organisation and training. The relationships and experiences that are developed through the teamwork and time away, creates memories for a lifetime. Seek the best!
I have received individual student reports for this year’s NAPLAN. These will be sent home to parents once they have been verified against the school data which is due for release in two stages, the first this week and the rest next Friday. Results should then be in your mailboxes early next term.
Bridgetown is unique in that it provides work experience to students in years 9 and 10. This is a great opportunity for our students as they begin to make decisions in the next few years about career choices. Having a practical experience upon which to reflect is very powerful. Knowing what you want to do is fantastic but not something we all know innately, so ruling out things you don’t want to do, is also valuable. Work experience provides a great opportunity to try things out and look at what went well, and why. Thanks to all local businesses and employers that have taken time to support our students through providing this opportunity.
Many thanks to the families who have returned their attendance records. Please be reminded that normal school classes are running for years 7 and 8 and students are expected to attend all of week 10.
SEEING ALL CHILDREN AS HUMAN BEINGS
Year 7's continued learning about stove top safety by making banana pikelets (and in some cases, just pikelets). Some of the year 7 photos are a little "blurry" due to icing sugar on the lens.
Year 8's designed, prepared and cooked thier own lunchbox menu suggestions as thier assessment task.
Year 9/10's made sweet potato, zucchini and feta frittata as well as a potato salad.
Anti-Poverty Week – BHS House Competition
To support Anti-Poverty Week BHS holds an annual competition to see which House can provide the most amount of tinned and packet food. These items are then donated to local charities.
Please may students bring items to the front office and place them in their House container from now until week 2 in term 4.
Thank you from Mrs Holdsworth.
In 2019, Anti-Poverty Week will be held from the 13th to the 19th of October. This year national Anti-Poverty Week organisers have invited the Raise the Rate campaign led by ACOSS to be the focus. This campaign is aimed at increasing the rate of Newstart and associated allowances by $75 a week.
Around one million Australians are reliant on these payments which have not been increased in real
terms for more than 25 years. Newstart at around $40 a day traps many people in poverty and
many employers say it acts as brake on job search. We can improve our social security system to lift
people out of poverty and unemployment – to truly give them a new start.
The year 10 Cadets enjoyed an outing to the Blackwood River as part of their DFES program, learning how to use local fire fighting equipment.
We would once again like to thank DFES and the many awesome local volunteers for spending so much quality time with our Cadets.
So much fun, so many photos... enjoy!
Bridgetown year 10 high school students were thrust first hand into the world of emergency services on Tuesday while taking part in the annual Roadwise Mystery Tour of Life.
Some very important messages were conveyed to our up and coming driver's, including; Don't drink and drive, don't use your mobile phone behind the wheel and look after each other!
Thanks to Bridgetown Fire & Rescue, St John Ambulance Bridgetown Sub Centre officers, Bridgetown Police, Bridgetown CWA, the Road Wise Committee, The Bridgetown Repertory Club actors and everyone else that assisted.
Please note: this is a simulated accident with simulated injuries.
Bridgetown High School is in the process of updating the student's school uniform.
