Photography Competition – Winners 2018

The eXchange would like to thank all students and staff who participated in the 2018 Photography Competition. The quality of the entries was outstanding. The People’s Choice category received over 1400 votes from the boys. The winners for 2018 are:

Best Staff Entry – Mr Trowse

People’s Choice – Xavier (Year 10)

Overall Winner – Simon (Year 10)

 

Mr Chris Walker, Communications Manager, judged the competition and praised many of the entries for their artistic merit. It may seem a way off until entries are open for 2019, but it is a great time to start taking photos for next year’s competition. It was extremely encouraging to see so many entries come from our Middle School.

Junior Jedis at the Lunchbox Club

“Ben! I can be a Jedi. Ben, tell him I’m ready!” (Thumps head on ceiling.)

The Lunchbox Club boys have been “constructing their own lightsabres” (sorry Darth!) and finding fun ways to repurpose used plastic printer cartridge components, PVC, and other typical components you would usually find lying around in a junk shop on Tatooine. We’ve also just made a deal that will keep the Empire out of here forever and are always happy to have new members!

So remember…

  • Nobody is too short to be a stormtrooper.
  • We will never tell you the odds.
  • You won’t have a bad feeling about this.
  • You’ll find we’re full of surprises.
  • We may be the droids you’re looking for!

So, unless you would prefer another military target…or wish to be a scruffy looking Nerf herder…then JOIN US, because this ‘aint like dusting crops’ boys!

Our Lunchbox Club is a space that provides a balance of hands-on and minds-on activities for boys eager to explore a range of technologies and creative interests. The Club provides a makerspace, always with a focus on STEAM activities aimed at supporting curriculum learning while enhancing students’ digital skills portfolios from early on. Recently, the boys have focused on exploring fun ways to recycle and repurpose waste materials. Technological waste and plastic components have been given new life as the boys fashioned these unwanted leftovers into lightsabres. The project has been so successful we are now running Prop Shop activities as part of regular Lunchbox Club activities.
