Fathering Project Launch

From the Research and Study Centre – End of Term 3

We are currently in the midst of Mystery Madness in the Research and Study Centre - we have had several Mystery competitions, a “who dunnit”, and “Maths Murder” investigations. The crime Escape Room activity booked out in minutes and a mystery fingerprint craft activity was a hit!

Kennedy Transform Centre Update

2020 has so far been a little different than any of us imagined, but we are so grateful that we get this time to reaffirm our purpose and to look at all we do with fresh eyes.

2020 Kennedy Photography Competition Winners

The Kennedy Photography Competition was a contest open to Years 7 – 12 students to enter their best photos, whether they used a DSLR camera, tablet or their phone. The competition was held in Term 2, with the winning photos being judged at the beginning of Term 3. The competition had three categories: 'Black and White', 'Close-Up' and 'My Neighbourhood', which resulted in a diverse range of photos being entered.
