Twelve students from Years 5 and 6 have been working really hard over the past two terms in preparation for the Tournament of Minds competition, which was held last weekend at Edith Cowan University.
Recently 40 girls in Years 7 and 8 completed the Balance Program. This program presents information on a number of different topics around wellbeing. It was lovely to see the students engage in each of the sessions to discuss and explore the topics presented. The girls enjoyed mixing with students in other Year groups and building relationships with each other.
Yesterday, Year 10 students had the opportunity to hear from a panel of guests, comprising of current and former Santa Maria students. The panel spoke about their experiences in choosing the ACCESS or ATAR pathway. The guests also spoke about how their choice benefited them and some words of advice for the girls about to make their own decision on which pathway to follow.
We sometimes tend to take our education for granted, but at the recent Girls4Girls Day Assembly, students were reminded that they need to treasure their education, and work together to ensure ALL girls are given educational opportunities.
As we celebrate Girls4Girls Day today, we reflect on what we hope for girls throughout the world?
