Our Year 8 students took a step back to Medieval Times today. As an opportunity to bring history to life and to further support transition; the year 8’s were involved in an authentic Byzantine medieval re-enactment of life in the 11th century, and middle ages themed team-building games and activities. A feast of yiros was also enjoyed by many. This inaugural event was an enormous success, with the students and staff well into the spirit of the occasion. Many thanks to the New Varangian Guard for creating an awesome Medieval Village on our oval, and spending the day immersing our students in 11th century history.
Special congratulations to two Year 12 (2017) students who had the esteemed honour of receiving a SACE ‘Merit’ award/s yesterday.
