Drama Club Impresses at YouthFULL Festivial

On Friday the 14th of September the Southern River College Drama Club performed at the YouthFULL festival at the Don Russell Performing Arts Centre. Our group of twelve performers presented the songs ‘More than survive’ and ‘Upgrade’ from the musical ‘Be More Chill’.

The audience enjoyed the performance and commented on how polished, together and funny the students were.

I could not be prouder of the students involved for pulling together such an amazing performance in two months and also for the support they have given each other in the process of planning and rehearsals and during the performance.

Also, a huge thank you to Miss Pasco, Mrs Page, Ms Smith, Ms Coole and Mr. Wallace-Gibb for their support behind the scenes of Drama Club. – Ms Pearce. ... See MoreSee Less

The Chevron LNG Exploration Day

At the Chevron Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) Exploration Day, our students joined with students from other schools at the Perth Arena to learn about the production of liquified natural gas in Western Australia.

The day was part of Chevron Australia's Powering Careers in Energy program which allows high school students to learn more about the energy industry and careers. Students were out of their comfort zones from the start of the day, being split into groups with students they didn’t know from other schools for the whole day, but they rose to the challenge and impressed staff and students alike.

In these groups, they learned about the science and technology behind to LNG exploration, extraction and processing through a series of interactive activities, as well as the health and safety aspects of the industry (including biodiversity on Barrow Island) and how advances in technology help the industry.

The day had a strong focus on careers and pathways; students took part in mock interviews with Chevron professionals, gaining valuable experience and practice for future job interviews and the types of questions they might be asked.
For the students, a highlight of the day was making ice-cream. How does ice-cream relate to LNG? Liquefied Natural Gas is liquid because it has been super-cooled to -162 degrees in order to change from gas to liquid. It takes up less space, is easier to transport and is less hazardous in this form. The process of making ice-cream also involved super-cooling the creamy mixture to illustrate the process; it also proved to be a fun activity to break up a day of learning and to help meet new people.

The students enjoyed their day very much and this is what they had to say:
“At first it was terrifying because of all the new people, but it was a wonderful experience for me”
“It was very professional and the best part was meeting new people and making new friends.”
“I loved learning about the technology used on Barrow Island”
“It was helpful to experience an interview and learn about what questions you might get asked”
“It was super fun and really engaging. I learnt lots about LNG, and the ice-cream was the best!”
“It was nice being able to meet new people and see and experience stuff”

The students who attended the day are all part of the Chevron Minerals and Energy Program at Southern River College. Thank you to Chevron for having our students and to Miss Ludekens for going along with them. ... See MoreSee Less

Volleyball WA High School Cup

On Friday 14 September, two teams represented Southern River College at the Volleyball WA High School Cup competition at Lords Recreation Centre, Subiaco. The year 9/10 girls team finished third in their division with the year 9/10 boys team finishing fifth. This is a fantastic achievement given the calibre of the competition.

All students demonstrated excellent sportsmanship, both on the court and off, and should be very proud of the way in which they represented the college. A huge thank you to the students who made the day such a success and we apologise to the PE team for pinching all your volleyballs.

Mr Murray and Mr Filer ... See MoreSee Less
