Charter House captains under the guidance of Head of Charter Mrs Pauline Galley worked incredibly hard on Charter House Pizza Day to get 205 pizzas delivered across the School piping hot for students at lunchtime on Wednesday 1 November. Charter Pizza day was well supported and just over $1,000 dollars were rasied for the animals at Kanyana Wildlife Sanctuary. Representatives from Kanyana Wildlife Sanctuary will come to the Secondary Assembly in Week 5 to receive the donation and to express how valuable the fundraising is. Some of their beautiful animals will also visit at assembly time.

Year 7 students Tayla Downing and Amber Rosewell competed in a two day ATC Showdown cheer leading competition over the last weekend in October at Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre.

The girls were part of Extreme Cheer Allstars 'Ignite' team junior level 1. The team won this competition and were the Level 1 champions.

They are the first Western Australian cheer leading team to also win a bid to compete at the 2018 Cheer Summit in Orlando Florida in May 2018.

Girls in Engineering

Last week a group of Year 7 girls attended the Girls in Engineering Discovery Day at the University of Western Australia with teachers, Ms Fisher and Ms Phillips. The excursion was an excellent opportunity for the girls meet current Engineering students, academics and professional engineers and participate in a number of practical activities.

"My favourite part of visiting was by far meeting Ruby the robot. It was a spectacular and unique experience to be able to experience how far technology can and will advance. Overall, a great experience," Lilly-Ann Burns

Secondary Instrumental Concert
In Week 4 the Arts Department presented two full and exciting evenings of music with the 2017 Primary and Secondary Instrumental Concerts. From older students building on many years of practice and extensive performance experience to our youngest students who have been trying out an instrument for the first time or courageously participating in their first public performance, we are very proud of the achievements of every student.

The Department would like to make special mention of Music Coordinator Mr Rory Marchant; without his tireless work and planning these concerts would not be possible. A sincere thank you to our peripatetic music teachers as well as staff, parent and student helpers, including incoming 2018 Arts Prefect Katelyn Clark for acting as the MC both evenings.
