On Wednesday the 6th of September the Year 6s had an excursion to Adelaide Oval, the Museum, and Parliament House.
We first went to Adelaide Oval and met our tour guides. During the tour we saw many incredible things including the changerooms, scoreboard, the coaches debrief room and much more. Our favourite part of the oval was when we ran up the players slope and a crowd (fake crowd) cheered us on.
Next, we walked to the SA Museum. We were split up into 3 groups and viewed the Museum’s exhibits, ranging from the Giant Squid, animals, and Sir Douglas Mawson exhibit.
After that we walked to Parliament House and our tour guide was Member for Heysen, Josh Teague. We got to see the House of Assembly and the Legislative Council. Josh taught us about the different levels of Parliament, and the various roles in a debate.

On Tuesday the YELP students attended a workshop day at Stirling East Primary School, along with many other YELP students from other schools. The day was full of hands-on environmentally-focused activities which included conducting PH testing of soil samples collected from across our school environment, identifying character strengths of our YELP team, making clay models and studying flora and fauna charts to identify key features of native animals and plants.
Our YELP representatives worked amazingly well as a team and showed excellent leadership skills in communicating their team goals and their learnings from the day.
Recently Swanbury Penglase commissioned professional photos of our new area opened late last year.
The new welcome and wellbeing spaces at St Catherine's School Stirling has completely transformed our beautiful school. Architecture, Interiors and Landscape teams worked together to deliver a new front entry, administration facilities and student breakout space.
