HASS Week WA is a cross-sector celebration of the Humanities and Social Sciences Learning Areas across the state. Many events took place in schools, universities and at the WA State Library this week.
The HASS Learning Area staff coordinated activities across all year groups; many students accepted the invitation to participate in a variety of competitions including the Nation-wide ASX Sharemarket Game where individual investors or group money-makers could win real cash prizes from the ASX. Students had the opportunity to take part in a letter writing competition to improve the environment around the school with prizes awarded for year group winners.
Middle School classrooms were buzzing with creative thinking and interesting research.
Paper chain dolls to represent different nations were made in class by Years 7 and 8 HaSS Classes which now surround the top of D Block.
The Daily Bulletin promoted various national competitions- all up for grabs.
Friday topped the week off with the MCC Jousting Carnival where opponents could battle it out for a gold coin donation.
Game show Quiz each day different year group. Good to see how competitive each year group became (Year 12s exceeded themselves).

Indonesian Language Club
Members of the Indonesian Language Club shared their love of Indonesia and Indonesian food by cooking up a storm for their peers. As part of the National Languages Week celebrations, students dressed up in traditional costumes and fried up some authentic Indonesian dishes. Mrs Magpilly showed off her culinary skills with some Perkedel Jagung. Students from Years 1 to 5 were shown how to cook Nasi Goreng and then sampled a few different dishes. A huge thank you to all the staff who assisted and to Megan Delport for her passion towards promoting languages at school.
Students from Year 4G celebrated Languages Week by cooking and devouring fine Italian cuisine. A visit to the Home Economics building under the guidance of Hannah Bent, allowed the students to create their own Pizza. The direct extension of many recent fractions lessons was greatly enjoyed by all students. A huge thank you to Hannah, Ian Pemberton and Megan Delport for their time and efforts in getting 27 kids to produce an impressive lunch for themselves.
