Djeran (April – May)
We are excited to see the work has begun on the HSHS Six Seasons garden during the holidays. A lot of thought and planning has gone into the preparation work before any planting begins. It will be fantastic to see each season unfold in our very own garden.
We are currently in the Noongar Season of ‘Djeran' which sees a break in the really hot weather, cooler nights and dewy mornings. Djeran is a time of red flowers, especially from the red flowering gum (Corymbiaficifolia), as well as the smaller and more petite flowers of the summer flame(Beaufortia aestiva).
As you travel around the Perth area, you may also notice the red 'rust' and seed cones forming on the male and female she oaks (Allocasuarina fraseriana). Banksias start to display their flowers, ensuring that there are nectar food sources for the many small mammals and birds that rely upon them. Traditionally, foods at this time of year included the zamia seeds that had been collected and stored for treatment during the previous season. The root bulbs of the yanget (Bullrushes), freshwater fish, frogs and turtles were also common foods.
As the season progresses, the nights will become cooler and damp. The onset of cool and rainy days meant that traditional mia mias (houses or shelters) were repaired and updated to make sure they were waterproofed and facing in the right direction in readiness for the deep wintery months to come. ...

Year 9 About Babies & Children excursion.
Congratulations to the wonderful students in the ABC course who have started to learn about what it means to interact with young children.
The students as part of their next task had the opportunity on Tuesday to visit and interact with the Kindy children of Anzac Terrace Primary School.
The students worked with the children to create a 2D Self-Portrait drawing which will then be turned into a 3D soft toy by our Year 9 students.
The interactions between our Hampton students and the Kindy children was a delight to observe, there was lots laughter, giggles and our students demonstrated great enthusiasm towards the young children.

SUBS in Schools Day 4 update.
The last day of competition started with a nervous breakfast as both teams waited for their least favourite part of the competition - the verbal presentation. They ran through their final preparations before their scheduled time. It was a great opportunity for them to explain all of the hard work they have done. Both teams did well to communicate their design and manufacturing processes and what they have learned during the project.
During the afternoon students had to bring down their trade displays which is when it started to become real that they are soon to head home. Once they had packed their own displays down, they showed their fantastic character by offering to pack down another schools display for them, so they didn't have to rush back from their sightseeing trip. It was yet another example of our group being kind, considerate and friendly - as they have all trip.
Fridays is the presentation of awards for the competition before we head back west in the evening.

SUBS in Schools Day 3 update
Another full morning started with teams returning to their trade displays and putting their ROVs back on display. Students were required to stand at their stations and discuss their project with visitors as well as get their brand out there by handing our merchandise. It was a lovely atmosphere with visitors, other competitors, and judges once they had finished stopping by to discuss the project. The event is being held at the same time as the F1 in Schools National finals so there were plenty of students and teachers from the F1 competition stopping in to find out more about our teams ROV.
Students were judged on their trade display (pictured) and had two engineering interviews. One was concerning the digital design work they had done and the other the manufacturing process. They both completed this and both teams squeezed in some time to continue polishing their presentation which will take place tomorrow morning.
Having spent the last few days entirely in Penrith some of our travellers needed to branch out into a different postcode and I needed to spend some time in a suburb where I didn't have to see a Panther (mascot of the local NRL team) everywhere you look. We took a train for half an hour an enjoyed dinner together at a nice Indian eatery.
Tonight, after we returned, students are finishing off slideshows and practicing presentations for tomorrow. It's been a big week, and both teams are looking to finish strong tomorrow. Luke Chapman ... See MoreSee Less
SUBS in Schools Day 2 update
Another big day for the group started with a short trip to the local swimming pool to prepare for their sea trials. The sea trials require the students to demonstrate their ROVs are able to function as per the design brief. This includes a timed course which involves a shipwreck (manoeuvring into a bin to read a code, picking up artefacts off the sea floor (pick up three objects and bring them to the surface) and the button (press a button inside a thin pipe with a metal rod.
Both teams got straight to work on their ROVs preparing them for the trials. Iron Clad continued their performance from the State competition. The first trial was a little shaky and some modifications and repairs were required. With those modifications they performed very strongly in their second trial. They managed the shipwreck and sea floor objects and were very close to the button.
Leviathan had been testing and trialling solutions in the lead up to the competition and continued to do so throughout the day. It was a day where their resilience was tested, and they continued to work through various tests and potential solutions. As the storms set in they kept working, eventually getting the ROV in the water and scoring some points near the end of the day.
After such an exhausting day the team needed some fun together and take their minds off the stress of the day. Luckily, we have a time zone in the complex, so we enjoyed some fun, games and friendly competition before having dinner together at a local restaurant.
The nature of the competition is such that we can't rest for too long. Back to the hotel for preparations for tomorrow's event and hopefully some sleep. Tomorrow the teams will be judged on their trade booths, giving our teams a chance to show off their improved displays and fancy new merchandise representing their brands. They will also be presenting on the digital design aspects of the ROV development and manufacturing.
The photo of Leviathan testing in the rain sums up the determination of both teams to do their best. No photo, but Iron Clad also attempted a third trial under similar weather conditions in an attempt to complete the button challenge. It's this determination on display from both teams that makes me very proud of them. By this stage most teams had packed up and had left for the day. It's a pleasure to be supporting them to compete in the competition. Luke Chapman, Deputy Principal ... See MoreSee Less

We wish our fantastic students every success and a great trip at the Australian Nationals for 'Subs in Schools' in NSW (qualifying after placing first and second at the state finals!).
During the afternoon students were reunited with their cartons for the first time in two weeks and worked on setting up their trade booths. Both HSHS teams have made some huge improvements since the state finals and the attention to detail stood out including the variety of cool merchandise and displays. We are very proud of the final result which is the result of some really hard work this term.
The early evening was spent on ROV repairs and finishing touches getting ready for tomorrow when the teams will be competing in their sea trials. Both teams finished the night with ROVs packed up and ready to get going with an early start and another long day on the horizon tomorrow.
