Year 7 news

Here we are! Year 7s have made it to the end of their first term at Calamvale Community College! In celebration, we had an end of year assembly to reflect on their experiences and successes.  The assembly was jammed packed with activities, including:

  • A live performance from Water Warriors from Urban Utilities. This wrapped up our Humanities Unit 1 focusing on water sustainability.
  • Classroom Karaoke “High Hopes” led by Miss Lucardi, with teachers distributing Easter goodies to the most passionate performers in the audience. Mrs Yan should have won best singer! This was certainly the highlight of the day.
  • Mr Duncanson, Year 7 Deputy Principal, gave students a glimpse of Term 2, and students participated in reflecting on Learner Profile Traits they developed throughout the term. This reflection is on page 106 of their organisers.  Mr Duncanson spoke about the cohorts achievements and how proud he was of their progress.
  • Mrs Thach concluded the assembly and each student was given a blank gratitude card to thank someone who has made a difference in their first term of year 7.  They filled in the note to thank a fellow student, friend, teacher or family member. Students were asked to be a communicator and a risk-taker and given the challenge of handing that card to the person they wrote about.  It was wonderful to see notes for teachers, families and friends being handed out.
  • The assembly concluded with a 6-minute video of Year 7 2021’s learning experiences and events throughout the term.  These photos and videos were submitted by teachers.  Students squealed and laughed in excitement as they saw their photos appear. Some of these images can be seen in the collage below.



As we head into the Easter holidays, we hope families and students have a wonderful and safe break.
