YEAR 8 EXCURSION TO ST GEORGE’S CATHEDRAL
On Tuesday, 30 October, the Year 8 cohort travelled to St George’s Cathedral in the city centre to explore and learn about the historic Mother Church of the Anglican Diocese of Perth.
The students participated in eight workshops which explored the Central Nave and High Altar – both rich with symbolism (which students have been learning about in Religion and Philosophy); learnt about robes and treasures of the Cathedral; climbed the bell tower and learnt how the rope-pulled bells worked; studied the pipe organ with All Saints' Heritage Coordinator, Mr John Beaverstock, one of a very few people authorised to play the organ in St George’s Cathedral. Everyone then descended into the crypt with Head of Humanities Ms Trish Harris to reflect on the history of crypts and the concept of death; contrasted the historic Cathedral with the bustle of the modern city; and listened to the legend of St George from a professional actor.
The day closed with a reflective service, with students lighting candles of prayer and giving thanks for their opportunities in life.
Overall, the day was full of crosscurricular learning, and the students returned quite surprised at how much fun a day in a cathedral could actually be.

YEAR 12 COLOURING BOOK
Starting to think about Christmas and stocking fillers? Why not purchase a colouring book designed by Year 12 ASC students for the younger members of your family?
For the first time at All Saints’ College, Year 11 and 12 students have enjoyed Personal Enrichment Periods scattered throughout their timetable. Known as PEP sessions, the purpose of these periods is to allow our Senior School students some ownership and control over their learning. Students are involved in both academic and wellbeing periods which allow time for them to work through some study, catch up with staff members or look after their wellbeing by getting involved in some physical, creative or restful sessions where they can take their mind off their academic studies for a small period of time.
During the year the Visual Arts staff opened up the Art rooms for wellbeing sessions with an end product in mind – a colouring book. Year 12 students who took up these sessions created the drawings for the colouring books that are available for purchase at the Runway Pop-Up Shop for $8.00 each. All money raised through the sale of this book goes to beyondblue, a foundation that provides information and support to help Australians achieve their best possible mental health, whatever their age and wherever they live, and is a partner of the All Saints’ College Service Learning Program.
Thank you to the following Year 12 students who contributed their drawings to this project:
