On the last day of term one, Thursday the 29th, the year 11 and 12 Systems Engineering students, and the year 11 and year 12 Physics classes got the opportunity to take part in an Air Force Simulation Experience (AFSE).
Activities include using Virtual Reality headsets to experience a joy flight in a PC9 plane, trying on the life support gear aircrew wear when flying, playing an Air Traffic Control game, and the main event the FA18 Super Hornet Simulator. Throughout the activities participants learned about what it's like to fly, while being immersed in the simulators.
Representing the Air Force, we had local personnel from RAAF Base East Sale leading the program. During our flight brief, we got the chance to ask questions, and provide answers for hypothetical situations, like turning a plane mid-air, or take off procedures. The personnel shared their personal experiences, telling students what its like to be in the Air Force. The goal of the program is to motivate students to excel in school and perhaps consider an Air Force career after school, such as being a pilot, Air Combat Officer or an Air Traffic Controller.
In the last week of Term 1 VCE students of Art, Studio Arts, Media and Visual Communication and Design have enjoyed their annual trip to Melbourne on Wednesday and Thursday this week.
Students viewed the best VCE folios from 2017 at the Top Designs exhibition at the Melbourne Museum and viewed the best Art and Studio Arts folios from 2017 at the Top Arts exhibition NGV – Australia in Fed Square. They also attended a lecture and viewed folios and art works from the top 2017 Art students. This supports students to understand what is required in producing a high level folio of work and final designs.
A very exciting night was had at the Regent Theatre where students watched the stage production of Pricilla Queen of the Desert. A real highlight! A huge two days was jam packed with new and exciting things to view and explore. The students are to be congratulated on their stamina, enthusiasm and courtesy.
During the last week of Term 1 the Year 7's had a fantastic few days at Licola Wilderness Village. Here are some snaps of what they got up to!
The Licola camp was all about interacting with new people and trying new things. Rock climbing, giant swing and canoeing are just some of the variety of things to do on camp that were new to the some people. The staff at Licola were very welcoming and were never shy to have fun with us. The Licola camp was a fantastic experience that the Year Seven group were able to share.
