Achievements and awards


We have just received our results for The Australian Computational and Linguistics Olympiad (OZCLO) – a challenge of developing strategies for problem solving in fascinating real languages. We received excellent results on a very tough paper this year. With 97 teams from WA, and over 500 teams Australia-wide, our Senior teams performed brilliantly and were awarded SILVER and BRONZE. A spectacular effort from the Junior teams, who were both awarded GOLD, placing 4th and 5th in the Junior Division and 8th and 9th overall. Congratulations to all the girls involved who gave up their lunchtimes to train and then put in an impressive effort on the day.

Synchronised swimming in Sydney

Congratulations to Year 10 student Chantelle Wheatley, who is making waves (or hopefully no waves at all) as a synchronised swimmer. Chantelle represented her club SupaNova at State Competitions earlier this month and has qualified to compete at the National Competitions being held in NSW at Sydney Olympic Pool. This sport is very demanding and requires Chantelle to train a minimum of 20 hours per week. She flies out to Sydney on 12 April so be sure to wish her luck.
