National Reconciliation Week:

National Reconciliation Week is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

One of the activities we held this week at the college was a planting ceremony, where our Aboriginal students nominated a friend, and they were all involved in planting hibiscus trees near the student services gates.

Special thanks to our college Board member Mr Jason Barrow, and his mum Gail Barrow, for explaining the meaning behind the Stolen Generation Flower.
Did you know that during the 20th century under the WA Aborigines Act of 1905, large numbers of Kimberley Aboriginal children were removed from their mothers by the government and put into institutions, missions or foster homes. Because of this policy, many people lost contact with their heritage, country and identity, and became known as the Stolen generation. The grief and trauma associate with these policies still affect survivors, their families and the community today.
The native hibiscus has been approved by the National Stolen Generations Alliance as the official symbol for Sorry Day.
According to the Kimberley Stolen Generations Aboriginal Corporation the native hibiscus was adopted because it is found widely across Australia, and it is a survivor.

Year 10 Engagement Program - Barber Shop

Armed for Life received a government grant of $200,000 over two years, to help support schools with running programs targeted at engaging students. Through our partnership with Armed for Life, the college was privileged to be selected to be involved in this initiative, with the Barber Shop program recently finishing.

The selected Year 10 students were mentored by Zack (a highly qualified barber from one of the top barber shops in Perth). Over the course of several weeks the students learned skills for a basic haircut, clipping, fading, scissoring and texturing.

Our HPE teacher Mr May even volunteered to have his hair cut as well as a couple of the students! Volunteering as a model for the students allowed them to practise their skills on a real person, which was an important part of their learning process. It was beneficial for students to have opportunities to apply what they've learned in a practical setting. Students were guided through the importance of ensuring that their client receives a full consultation and to gain trust in their barber!

Overall, the beneficial program provided a practical learning experience for these students and allowed them to gain exposure to the barbering trade. Programs like these can be instrumental in helping students explore their interests and potentially pursue future careers in the industry.

Well done to students: Jack May, Rivah Anthony, Ben Eun, Karter Stephenson, Zac Gullotto, Bella Watson, Skye Ricciardo, Raidyn Tana, Alfie Fallows-Kershaw, Jesse Barratt, Maddy Murphy, Jessica Peterson, Monica Sayeh, James Sandilands-McCance.

Thank you so much to Zack and the Armed for Life team for supporting the college with this amazing opportunity and to Miss Proctor for supporting and supervising the students each week!

Year 9 Lightning Carnival:

On 25 May 62 of our Year 9 students and 10 Year 10 helpers attended the North Coastal HPE Network Lightning Carnival.

Netball was held at Kingsway Indoor Stadium. Basketball was held at Warwick Stadium and Soccer held at Warrandyte Park in Craigie.

Basketball: Our teams showcased their skill, sportsmanship and teamwork against eight other high schools in the local area. The girls' team continued to improve throughout the day. After an early loss, the team regathered itself and slowly grew in confidence which culminated in a huge 24-4 victory in the final regular game. This win secured them a place in the playoffs, and they finished fourth. Their unwavering teamwork and dedication were evident throughout the day. Meanwhile, the boys' Division 1 and Division 2 teams fought with determination, giving their all in every game. Despite their best efforts, they fell short of the finals. However, their remarkable display of sportsmanship and perseverance was inspiring. The carnival was a true testament to the spirit of friendly competition, with all students involved both players and helpers doing Alkimos College proud. A special thanks to the Year 10 helpers, Mr Hall, Ms Naylor and Izzy for ensuring the day ran smoothly for all players involved.

Soccer: In an awe-inspiring display of grit and determination, the Alkimos Year 9 soccer team secured an impressive 3rd place finish. The team's journey was characterised by numerous challenges, including a shortage of substitutes and an unforgiving schedule, but they overcame these obstacles with unwavering resilience.
With one victory, two draws, and a narrow loss in the semi-finals through a penalty shootout, Alkimos showcased their skill and teamwork throughout the tournament. The lack of substitutes didn't deter their spirit, as the players displayed exceptional grit and endurance on the field. They pushed themselves beyond their limits, proving that the size of a team does not dictate its potential.
What made their achievement even more remarkable was the gruelling schedule they faced in the semi-finals. Having played two consecutive matches with a mere 10 minutes of rest in between, while their opponents enjoyed a full game break, Alkimos demonstrated incredible fortitude and adaptability. Well done to the tam and thanks to Mr TuiSamoa and the Year 10 helpers!
