Woodvale Secondary College students and staff enjoyed a successful day at the Interschool Athletics Carnival! WSC came fifth in ‘B’ division and as a result will remain in ‘B’ division next year. A special congratulations to Jake P who was awarded champion boy for Year 7!
Hospitality Group Training awarded Woodvale Secondary College "School Partnership of the Year 2015-2016" in recognition of the commitment and support for entry level training at their awards evening held last week. This particularly recognises the College's provision of hospitality training of an industry standard to its students.
This year, Woodvale SC was very lucky to have two teams enter the Interschool Numero Challenge. The competition involved students completing four different challenges, either as individuals or teams, under time restraints. We were fortunate to have the head coordinator, Julie Richards, come to our class to provide an intensive training session and share a few competition hints and tips.
It is clear that knowing an Asian Language is one thing that may offer our students the edge in the work place and in other life opportunities, as well as having many other benefits. To this end, top students in Years 9 and 10 were offered a special lunch in which they were given a presentation on the benefits of continuing their studies of Japanese and Chinese into senior school. This included outlining the benefits, particularly through screening interviews of successful career-minded people who are testaments to the importance of learning an Asian Language and learning about Asian cultures. Specific benefits of continuing to study an Asian Language at the College were outlined.
