Academic Philosophy

Work Hard: In school, smart kids do not always finish first.  It often comes down to commitment and hard work.  So we encourage students to remember to work hard.

Infuse Urgency: Most students only work hard a few days before a piece of work is due because that is when it becomes urgent.  We teach our students to break work up into smaller pieces, infuse urgency into the small tasks and get the work done on time.

Never Give Up: Courage is not the absence of trials, it is the conquest of them.  Winners are those who push through when times are tough, when everyone else is giving up.  That is when success is the sweetest, so we encourage our students to never give up.

 

 

 

Primary Goings On

Artist of the Week - Jack Birch

Hi, my name is JACK BIRCH.

I’m in Year 1C and my teacher is Mrs Bond. I started at ACBC in Kindy in 2015. At School, I really enjoy Art with Mrs Tie.

I love playing AFL football and when I’m older I'd like to be a football player. At home, I like to play football with my brother Max. My favourite AFL team is the Eagles.

My favourite colour is blue because it is an Eagles Team colour.

Primary students recently planted 200 tree seedlings at the High School Campus.

The seedlings were supplied by Men of the Trees in Rockingham, and a team from Bunnings Halls Head helped to plant 12 established trees. A big thanks to Mandurah Toyota for their support in providing prizes and tree guards.
