This Term the Year 3 classes in Block 4 entered a Tree Decorating Competition for the Perth Hills Festival, as it complemented their studies in Food and Fibre as part of the Design and Technology Curriculum.
The students also learnt about the lifecycle of fruit trees and how fruit gets from the orchard to the markets and then to us, and about the different fruit that is grown in the region of Roleystone and Karragullen.
The tree the students designed depicts the four different seasons and what fruits are produced in each season and what happens to the fruit trees during the seasons.
The result was a stunning 1.2-metre-tall tree which impressed the judges and just got pipped for first place.
Congratulations to everyone involved in creating the beautiful tree.
It will be on display at the Perth Hills Festival on October 12 at Karragullen.

A very busy Term 3 culminated in this year’s Athletics Carnivals, with students from Kindy to Year 10 enjoying two fantastic days of athletics and fun events. All students excelled in sportsmanship and competed with pride in their House colours.
Our Year 5-10 students kicked off the carnivals on Friday 13 September, with some fantastic individual results but it was a hard fought and resilient win by the students in Chevin, which took the House honours this year.

Recently the WA Department of Education decided to acknowledge the work and support of Education Assistants in our schools across the state, by dedicating a special week to them.
EA’s work tirelessly in classrooms, assisting teachers and providing support to lots of students every day.
Here at Roleystone Community College we have many dedicated EA’s who work very hard every day helping our students learn and progress their education, contribute to their safety and wellbeing whilst at the college and support students with additional needs.
EA’s also provide tremendous support to our teachers, in and out of the classroom.
EA’s at Roleystone Community College lend a sympathetic ear, give a helping hand, and put a smile on the faces of students and staff.
We appreciate everything our EA’s do at RCC and thank them for their professionalism and hard work.
Apologies to those who aren’t pictured in the photos – but please know as a collective group you are all fantastic colleagues.

On Thursday 8th August Principal Mark Brookes held a special morning tea for the Roleystone Community College students who achieved Principals’ Honours in First Semester.
79 students were the worthy award recipients.
In 2017, Mr Brookes introduced the Principal’s Honours to the College. In Semester 1, of that year RCC had 24 students who met the criteria for the award, which is presented to those students who demonstrate consistent excellence academically in their studies.
The award is presented to children in Pre Primary to Year 3 who have achieved an A- average in English and Mathematics without having worse than a C grade on their report.
And to students in Year 4 to Year 10 who have achieved an A- average in English, Mathematics, Science and Humanities and Social Sciences without having worse than a C grade on their report.
All award winners must have demonstrated appropriate attendance at school for the Semester.
Mr Brookes is extremely proud of the work done by staff and students over the past two years to make this amazing improvement.
Mr Brookes and staff of Roleystone Community College would like to congratulate all the winners for Semester 1, along with these 4 students who have received the Principal’s Honours each semester for the 2 and a half years it has been running.
