Year 9 Try A Trade
Year 9 Students were offered the opportunity to participate in a construction based ‘Try-A-Trade’ program ran on campus by the Trade Academy WA. The program is funded by the Construction Training Fund as an opportunity for students to get some hands-on experience trying out various trades from the Construction industry. Wayne from Trade Academy WA delivered a program that involved the students completing framework, concreting, levelling, and tiling projects. The students all took great pride in the work they delivered and demonstrated some impressive skills for newcomers to the trade. Further information on Try-A-Trade programs is available from the Careers Department.
During the school holidays (after Soccer Country Week) some of our Nagle students represented Football West TSP in the Borneo Cup, Malaysia. The students were joined by team members from all around the state.

Earlier this year as part of the Y12 General Media Production and Analysis course, Jai created a short horror film called Windikouk. It is a short non-linear horror film that sees a group of teenagers encounter the mythological Windikouk, a malevolent spirit believed to possess its victims.
Jai’s film-making efforts have already been recognised at both a national and international level, and so far Jai has been awarded the following for his film:
Official Selection in the Lift-Off Filmmaker Sessions (London, United Kingdom)
Honourable Mention in the Changing Face International Film Festival (Sydney, Australia)
Quarter-Finalist in the Scout Film Festival Emerging Filmmakers Grant (Vermont, United States)
Jai was competing against university and post-university film students in each of these competitions and there will no doubt be more success to come.

Year 10 Retreat
Our Year 10s were blessed with sunshine for their ‘Illuminate the Path’ Retreat on Friday, last week. For part of the day they were involved in discussion with former student Sam Trusso about how small choices in behaviour, attitude and resiliency can have an impact on their big life choices. For the other part of the day they had a chance to get a bit messy with Creative Therapy Solutions, looking at how Jesus can really light the way for their next step. They finished with a short liturgy in the Cathedral with Father Dominic.
Year 12 Farewell
This week the College farewelled our Year 12s. At their final assembly on Monday, William won the Australian Defence Force (ADF) Long Tan Youth Award that recognises students who demonstrate strengths in the areas of leadership and teamwork, and Will won the ADF Future Innovators Award which recognises innovation in the areas of STEM. It was also a time to enjoy the final videos – a tradition that has evolved into a fun tribute between the staff and students.
Today, in keeping with tradition, the students ran through the school as they announced their arrival in their creatively transformed uniforms. They spent the morning off campus playing games such as wheelchair basketball, cricket, mini golf and topped it off with a pizza lunch. During Break 1 the 12s ran through the campus, past the statue of Nano Nagle with her lantern, while students and staff cheered on with a guard of honour down the drive, the gates ceremoniously closed after their departure.
We wish the Class of 2022 all their best for their future and we look forward to their Graduation Mass at the Saint Francis Xavier Cathedral and Ceremony in the Bishop Justin Bianchini Gymnasium on Friday 14 October.
A special thank you to Mrs Williams and her Year 11 Media students, Jaide, Georgia and Ella for helping film.

Nagle Careers Speed Dating 2022
The Year 9 students had the opportunity to hear from a wide range of professional people about the career pathways they have taken from leaving school to get to their current occupations. We had speakers from a range of industries/careers including rail freight operation workers, medical professionals, veterinary careers (including special guest Hagrid the labradoodle), a range of different tradespersons, education works, cricketing professionals and agriculture. The students sat with each professional for 6 minutes listening to their story and learning about their careers before moving along to the next person. We would like to thank the speakers who gave up their mornings to explain to the students details about their careers and the pathways that they took to achieve their current occupations.
A group of Nagle students had an excursion to Mrs Clunes’ farm early in Term 3 as part of the Life Skills Course. It was a beautiful sunny day and the students were able to have a taste of farm life for a short time. The students witnessed shearing and all its many jobs and met some adorable working dogs. They also were able to chase some sheep in the yards. Students stepped back in history when looking at the old “Newmarracarra “homestead which is over a 100 years old.
The students enjoyed the hands on nature of the many jobs that are carried out on a farm and how busy and well synchronised the process of shearing is.
The group also saw various types of crops in their green state and hope to go back to the farm next term to see them when they are ripened before harvest. It will include a few laps in the big tractor of course!
It was a great day had by all and look forward to our trip out again next term.
