On Friday 4th May students participated in Cross Country at Princess Park oval. It was a terrific day for all staff and students with a high level of participation by all. After the big race the students and staff enjoyed a barbeque whilst celebrating the sporting accomplishments of the students. In 2018 Crane House were victorious and took out the Cross Country shield. House Leader, Sam Sharpe celebrated with students and staff in Crane House on the return bus trip back to school. We are extremely proud of the positive House Spirit demonstrated by all students and the comradery and good sportsmanship is a credit to the McGuire College Community.
On Wednesday 2nd May staff participated in a solid day of professional learning around curriculum transformation. Staff worked extremely hard on transforming our Year 8 curriculum to ensure that it incorporates the following 21st Century skills for our students:
- Learning and Innovation Skills
- Life and Career Skills
- Information, Media and Technology Skills
- 21st Century Themes embedded in all subjects
We are looking forward to our students reaping the rewards from our innovative work in the very near future.
Congratulations to our Year 12 class of 2018 who have maintained an attendance rate above 93% throughout April-May. This is a fantastic achievement and will certainly support you in making the most of your final year at McGuire College.
