Year 9 Teenage Living students have been focusing on different types of self-care and homemade cosmetic products throughout Term 3.
Recently, students participated in a special skin incursion, provided by Dermal Therapist and owner of ‘Miracle Skin Clinic’, Gulay Kanani. Gulay presented students with an abundance of relevant information, including topics such as, the importance of sunscreen, affordable and effective skincare options and skincare products and treatments to avoid. Students also prepared and gave each other hydro jelly face masks.
Miss Jones and her class wish to thank Gulay for this enjoyable and knowledgeable experience.

Australian History Competition:
This year the Year 8 and 10 Alpha/GAT students attempted the Australian History Competition. Students studied a range of historical sources and questions to focus on testing students analytical and interpretive skills in comparing their ability to students all around the country. Both the Year 8 and 10 students scored higher than the Australian School Average, which is a fantastic result for Alkimos College’s first entry in the competition!
Australian Geography Competition:
The Year 7 and 9 Alpha/GAT students attempted the Australian Geography Competition. The AGC is a contest for Australian secondary school students, assessing their geographical knowledge and skills against students from all over the country. The competition was a selection of multiple-choice questions testing geographical knowledge and skills. It gave student real-world sources and examples to use their geographical skills.

Alkimos College staff on the national stage!
Our foundation staff SALP teacher, Sarah Dinan was one of only four educators selected to represent WA at the recent AEU conference and lobbying event in Canberra.
Mrs Dinan met with several ministers in Parliament House to promote the 'For Every Child' campaign, including Federal Education Minister Jason Clare, who listened to compelling accounts from delegates representing each state and territory.
All of the Ministers that the WA delegates met with, asserted their full commitment to ensure equitable funding for all public schools.
Mrs Dinan even caught up with our very own College Board member! TTracey Roberts - Federal Member for Pearce
Mrs Dinan is proud to have participated in this successful and memorable experience and described the opportunity as a real privilege.
