Following a period of feedback from parents, the College has now agreed to the uniform no longer being sold on site. Parental response to our call for feedback was positive with only a small number of parents concerned about accessibility. From Term 3 2015, therefore, WSC uniforms will be available from the Uniform Concepts store in Winton Road, Joondalup.
The inaugural “Whale Shark Race Around the World” is almost ready to begin! Mrs Warr and Mr Richards attended the information session earlier this term, along with many staff representatives from the Woodvale Learning Community Network (Woodvale SC, Creaney PS, Halidon PS, Woodvale PS and North Woodvale PS) at the WA Maritime Museum. Dr Brad Norman (Ecocean) and former WA Chief Scientist, Professor Lyn Beazley, presented the highlights and resources available for this year’s event. Students in a number of classes will be monitoring the migration patterns, behaviour and habits of the whale sharks (WA’s marine emblem) off the Exmouth coast, following the tagging of the sharks which will occur in the first week of Term 3. Students will get the opportunity to participate in a skype session with Dr Brad Norman live from Exmouth and representatives will attend the final presentation day in August to see which school’s shark ‘won’ the race.
