Students work on a cubby for Prep class
LAST term, the Year 11/12 industrial technology students worked on the final stages of a school community project designed for Early Years children - a cubby house.
Last year, the Year 11/12 industrial technology students interviewed the Prep class about what they wanted for their class cubby house.
From those conversations, plans were drawn and preparations begun to undertake this project.
Working throughout the second half of last year and the beginning of this year, the students worked diligently to build the structure.
While the project took more time than hoped, the end of this exciting addition to the primary campus is nearing, with only the exterior painting and landscape left to complete.
Though this project has been time-consuming and challenging, for these students and their teacher, Scott Stone, it is pleasing to be so close to completion.
"This project has been an ideal way for the industrial technology students to learn more about construction work and to help them develop their skills in this area,” Mr Stone said.
"The cubby house has been based on what it takes to construct a house.
"It's very heavy and took six students to lift and move from the technology space on the secondary campus to its final location on the primary campus.”
There is now debate about ownership between the current Preps who have the cubby house situated close to their classroom and the Year 1 class who initiated discussions about this project.
Back to the 80s trivia night success
LAST Saturday night, the Bathersby Stadium was transported back in time to the 1980s.
More than 250 people dressed up in 80s fashion when velvet was hot and velour even hotter.
Waistlines had crept higher and hairstyles were typically big, curly bouffant and heavily styled.
An array of colourful costumes were on display on the night as trivia fanatics gathered for this fun-filled St Joseph's P&F Association fundraising event.
Master of ceremonies for the evening, Rob Reeves, kept the crowd entertained. The 80s inspired photo booth was kept busy as new memories were captured.
Once the trivia was completed, DJ Wrenny kept the atmosphere kicking on with the after-trivia disco.
Congratulations to the winners F.O.C.U.S, second Blondie (My Drinking Team has a Trivia Problem), third Uncultured Club and the Wooden Spoon winners Married with Children.
The Care Bears were delighted to be named best dressed team with Remo Raccanello and Kellie Biggin named best dressed male and female.
A huge thank you is extended to the many generous local businesses and sponsors who donated prizes for the multi-draw raffle and various sections.
Thank you to the P&F Association and the Trivia Night Committee for organising a successful and enjoyable event.
Evenings such as the trivia night allow families of St Joseph's School to gather socially and also for the wider community to join in the fun.
