A Questacon ‘smart skills’ workshop was held for selected Year 7-9 students this week. This is a STEM based workshop where the students are involved in hands-on skills. Looks like great fun and great learning!
Earlier this month, a team from BCC travelled to South Coast Baptist College in Waikiki to compete in the Rockingham Interschool Chess Tournament. The competition was tough, and BCC finished 3rd, behind South Coast Baptist and Halls Head College.
Our best players on the day were Joel Cronin and Blake Botica, both winning 4 of their 7 games.
As the only Bunbury team, BCC has automatically qualified for the State Finals later this year. Overall, a great day was had by everybody!

What a great effort by the College Cross Country team at the SWSSA carnival yesterday.
Despite leaving behind some very talented runners at school, our team still had the class to win Overall Champion School. Also taking out Year 7, Year 9 and Senior Champion shields.
We had terrific individual performances across both campuses and these students will be presented with SWSSA certificates at the NAIDOC Assembly next week.
A big thank you as well to Mike Hearne, Terri Gann and Paige McKenzie for their assistance.

Four students who took part in the Indian Immersion 2016, Chris Gaetke, Ruby Nalder, James Granger and Charles Reddin spoke to the Bunbury Leschenault Rotary Club today about their experiences working with the Missionaries of Charity in Kolkata (started by Saint Mother Teresa) and travelling to different parts of India. This Rotary Club, as well as the BCC Ex-Students Association, donated $1000 which the group used to buy clothes, learning and medical equipment and toys for the children in India. They are pictured here with Rotarians,Steve Woodhouse and ex-student, Michael Jenkins. The group look forward to sharing their presentation which involves slides and a short video to fellow BCC students.
BCC students from Years 9 and 10 and then Years 7 and 8 are enjoying 2 separate workshops over 2 days with Brisbane based Author, John Moloney, as part of the Talented Young Writers series.
During this series the students are given the opportunity to not only hear about the author’s journey, which is often quite a story in itself, but also brainstorm ideas with like-minded students and get direct feedback from much published authors.
