Design Students were excited to view works of Visual Art from 2017 at the College of the Arts in Lights Square. They had an insight into the quality of work expected to successfully achieve their SACE. The visit to the Biennial 'Divided Worlds' Art Exhibition at the Art Gallery of South Australia was a first for some, making the excursion a very valuable experience.
While the action is currently taking place on the Gold Coast for the Commonwealth Games, the student athletes of Charles Campbell were competing in their own athletics competition last Thursday at the Interschool Track and Field Championships at SANTOS Stadium.
A bright and sunny day made for perfect conditions for the 33 students who participated in the events that they had successfully won or placed second in from the CCC sports day. It was great to have a number of students help fill in missing spots and have a go at events that they hadn’t previously done, in particular the hurdles and steeplechase.
The attitude and willingness of the students was great to see and contributed to some great placings in the division 1 category – with the boys finishing on 260 points in 6th position, and the girls narrowly missing out on first by 4 points, to finish on 297 points in second. These results left Charles Campbell to finish in 3rd position overall on the day against seven other schools, a fantastic result!
There were some outstanding results on the day, with a number of students placing first, second and third in their events, as well as performing personal bests in a number of events. Successful students were-
Boys Matthew Lill – Long Jump. Alex Van Wyk – Discus.
Girls Furtuna Legesse – 800m, 1500m. Hayley Jamison – Shot Put
Boys Tatenda Nyaruwe (100m, 200m), Braxton Conradi (400m), James Candeleria (Javelin). Emjai Santos-Paje (Shot Put, Discus), 4x100m Relay Team.
Girls Gul Zehra (Long Jump, Shot Put, Discus).
Boys Jacob Campbell (High Jump, 1500m - Open). 4x100m Relay Team.
Girls Tiegan Chau (100m, 200m, Long Jump), Holly Duthy (400m).
Girls Makayla Saunderson (Triple Jump, High Jump), 4x100m Relay Team
Congratulations to all students involved on the day for their efforts and participation. A special thanks as well to Aidan, Bree, Finlay and Sophia who volunteered and helped with the marshaling on the day.
We could well have witnessed some budding athletic stars of the future!
Congratulations to all CCC Certificate III Dance students who attended the Leaps and Bounds Dance day on Monday 26th March at the Adelaide Festival Centre with other schools from across the state.
Students participated in workshops delivered by independent industry artists: Sian Jackson (graduate AC Arts), Tanya Voges (dancer and choreographer from Sydney) and Lewis Major an award-winning Australian choreographer and dance artist based between the UK, France and Australia, and who will be working at CCC next Term.
This opportunity has provided an in-depth industry understanding and developed school community connections. The program expanded the students’ knowledge in creating and making movement in an authentic environment.
As part of Charles Campbell College’s PGL programme, Brainstorm Productions will be presenting their student wellbeing program ‘The Hurting Game’ forYears 7-9 on the 5th of April.
The Hurting Game is a daring look at the hurtful games we sometimes play to give ourselves a false sense of power and belonging. This is an entertaining way to promote discussion about friendship, peer pressure, bullying, body image, digital reputation and the way we interact at school and online.
The program aims to inspire students to develop healthier and happier relationships, both online and in the real world. The Hurting Game is part of our student wellbeing curriculum and the program has been developed in consultation with teachers, psychologists, as well as real-life student experiences.
The methodology of the program is safe, supportive and nonjudgmental and designed to provide students with positive and useful tools that they can use in their everyday lives.
