The Language Literature team have won the State Final. They will now compete in the Australia-Pacific Finals in Adelaide!
The camp began on Sunday night with cultural activities that included indigenous dance, rock painting, indigenous singing, artefact designs and mural painting. On Monday the girls started the morning with "A Walk Together" with all Academies and Staff visiting Kings Park Lookout. The Walk Together was to raise awareness about the gaps in educational outcomes for Aboriginal Women. ABC Radio and Channel Nine interviewed some of our girls. The rest of the day was spent at the Ern Halliday Recreation Camp participating in adventure and team building activities. A delightful lunch was had at a nearby Chinese restaurant. That night the girls went to Morley bowl for dinner and bowling. Tuesday was a full day of basketball competition at Curtin University. Our girls were fierce competitors and made it into the semi finals. The girls also indulged in free massages and strapping provided by the University students! Wednesday was back to the university for a tour and cultural and employment activities with university representatives. The girls then watched the showcase grand final between Kalgoorlie and Clontarf. Presentations were held and the All Star team was named - Zaleema Bourne from ESHS made the All Star team. Ricky Grace, the Girls Academy CEO, and various corporate sponsors presented awards. Dr Robert Isaacs conducted the Welcome to Country and a gave a speech that included some Girls Academy history.
It was a tremendous camp and we look forward to the continued growth of our new Girls Academy.

Humanities and Social Sciences classes have been exploring issues relating to recycling. An action group of interested students has been formed to promote recycling within the school community. Students recently visited the Shire council meeting to put their case forward for a total ban on plastic bags in Esperance. Their speech concluded with a quote from the Lorax - "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not."

We travelled to Wagin on Thursday 9th , the students set the sheep up in their pens then we travelled to Narrogin Agricultural College to set up our dorm.
It was an early start on the Friday as the students cared for and prepared the sheep from our new Suffolk Stud for showing, we had a lot of nervous students, with many attending their first agricultural show . We were very pleased with their performance and the school achieved a third place in the Interschool Competition.
The Saturday saw the start of the Junior Judging competition, the students had to judge wool quality as well as judge livestock in the Merino and Poll Dorset section of the competition, again we had some anxious first timers. The highlight from this day was when William Clements was announced as the second placegetter for the Poll Dorset judging section. We had some students step up and take on extra responsibility by helping other studs with the showing of their animals, this provided a great experience for our students to further develop their skills.
Overall it was a great four days away and a massive thank needs to go to Emily Mc Donald and Mick Harris for all their hard work they put in to provide our students with the opportunity to attend this event
