GATEway 8 is coming!

Capture

 

The GATEway 8 Academic Gala Day is a competition in which students participate in a number of academic challenges based around a theme.

Creative challenges may involve designing and planning a video game, creating an advertisement or movie trailer, participating in drama and sport challenges and composing their own musical composition using instruments and technology.

GATEway is a great opportunity for talented students who perform well academically and would like to compete against similar students from other schools.

William Carey will be sending a Year 7/8 team and a Year 9/10 team in Week 4. Any students who are interested can see Miss Smith in the HSIE staffroom or send her an email.

100 Word Short Story Competition Winners!

During Term 2 the 100 word short story competition ran for a second year.

We had even more entries this year from both seniors and juniors.

As with last year, a number of creative, imaginative and well written stories were entered, providing firm proof that it is possible to write a compelling story with only a limited number of words.  As a result, the talented entries made the task of choosing a winner quite difficult for the judges.

However, after much deliberation, one winner and one runner up was chosen to receive a prize.

Winner – Nathaniel W (Year 12)

Runner- up – Felise L (Year 9)

 

Below is the video that was played at the end of the term containing the winning entry.
