Yesterday, Sanny the Origami Artist visited Hampton Senior High School and dazzled the students in our SLP and ASD programs! The students were engaged, entertained, and focused on the craft and wizardry that Sanny brought to life. They were challenged, laughed out loud, and eagerly asked for more.

Thank you to Sanny for joining our school community as a valued volunteer and to EdConnect Australia for working with us to make this happen. What a fantastic way to end the week! We are excited that Sanny will be visiting Hampton SHS once a month.

Hampton SHS is exceptionally fortunate to have such a proactive, hard working and humble P&C. Evident in all that that they do is the firm belief that Hampton students deserve to have every opportunity to participate and succeed at all levels. The time spent networking with local politicians, attending meetings and supporting school events is all done on top of their already busy lives. 

Our Canteen is run by the P&C. Not only do they work hard to ensure our canteen meets healthy food guidelines and stays as cost effective as possible with a variety of products, several of them also volunteer each week in the canteen, at Dance and Drama Nights and other school events to ensure maximum profit goes back into school programs. I am immensely lucky to work with such an amazing team and cannot speak highly enough of this small but mighty. dynamic group of parents and community members.

The past week was highly informative and eventful for both the Year 11 Children Family & Community students and the Year 10 Childcare students.

The week begun with the Year 11 students having the privilege of meeting and listening to the wonderful ladies (Dyan & Kym) from the Koolkuna Womenโ€™s Refuge and Indigo Junction. They spoke about the services offered and how they support women and families in need. The students actively listened and participated in class discussions before showing our guests the planning stages of the Cot blankets they are producing as a donation to the refuge.
The week ended with the Year 10 Childcare class taking the bus trip up to Northam Hospital to visit the maternity rooms of the Wheatbelt Midwifery Group practice and donate handmade Baby Books.

We met midwife Melanie who took us on a tour of the delivery rooms, including the water bath and the fit balls used for expectant mums.
We were given a wonderful opportunity by midwife Judi to meet an expectant mum who allowed the class to listen in on an antenatal visit where mum was measured, and we listened to a babyโ€™s heartbeat at 24 weeks. (Thank you to Katie & her partner)
As we have been learning about the pregnancy journey the students were also given the rare opportunity to view a real placenta complete with umbilical cord. A few students watching through fingers, but the majority were fascinated as was I.
An outstanding week by all students and a look at the possibilities for career pathways through the child studies and community services area.

The past week was highly informative and eventful for both the Year 11 Children Family & Community students and the Year 10 Childcare students.

The week begun with the Year 11 students having the privilege of meeting and listening to the wonderful ladies (Dyan & Kym) from the Koolkuna Womenโ€™s Refuge and Indigo Junction. They spoke about the services offered and how they support women and families in need. The students actively listened and participated in class discussions before showing our guests the planning stages of the Cot blankets they are producing as a donation to the refuge.
The week ended with the Year 10 Childcare class taking the bus trip up to Northam Hospital to visit the maternity rooms of the Wheatbelt Midwifery Group practice and donate handmade Baby Books.

We met midwife Melanie who took us on a tour of the delivery rooms, including the water bath and the fit balls used for expectant mums.
We were given a wonderful opportunity by midwife Judi to meet an expectant mum who allowed the class to listen in on an antenatal visit where mum was measured, and we listened to a babyโ€™s heartbeat at 24 weeks. (Thank you to Katie & her partner)
As we have been learning about the pregnancy journey the students were also given the rare opportunity to view a real placenta complete with umbilical cord. A few students watching through fingers, but the majority were fascinated as was I.
An outstanding week by all students and a look at the possibilities for career pathways through the child studies and community services area.

The squad played excellent basketball all day. In my time at Hampton as a teacher, this was definitely the most impressive day both in terms of results and the style of game the team displayed consistently throughout.

We had a close loss in the first game. Clearly this was because the team didnt get to warm up as we ended up dominating our next 4 games, winning them all by 20 points each. 

This took us to the semi-final against Carine, the strongly favoured team for the day. The boys fought hard but ended up losing by a mere couple of points!

To finish, we competed for 3rd place against the team that beat us at the start of the day. The team took care of business, leaving the stadium with another 15-point blowout.

Buongiorno Hampton SHS community!

๐‡๐š๐ฏ๐ž ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ ๐ž๐ฏ๐ž๐ซ ๐œ๐จ๐ง๐ฌ๐ข๐๐ž๐ซ๐ž๐ ๐›๐ž๐œ๐จ๐ฆ๐ข๐ง๐  ๐š ๐ก๐จ๐ฌ๐ญ ๐Ÿ๐š๐ฆ๐ข๐ฅ๐ฒ ๐Ÿ๐จ๐ซ ๐š๐ง ๐ˆ๐ญ๐š๐ฅ๐ข๐š๐ง ๐ฌ๐ญ๐ฎ๐๐ž๐ง๐ญ? This may be the occasion! In Term 3 the Languages team at Hampton SHS would like to host an Italian language Assistant, a program run by the WA Association of teachers of Italian.

Italian Language Assistants are university students from a group of Italian universities. They aspire to become teachers and want to enrich their portfolio with an international experience. Language Assistants will spend a term (approximately 11 weeks) in Australia, completing their internship experience in their host school, where they share their language, culture, and passion for intercultural experiences. 
As a host family, you will have a chance to have an authentic Italian meal cooked by your guest, practice your Italian, or have a language tutor at home. In the classroom, a language assistant increases the opportunities for differentiation and enrichment and enables students to have more time for speaking practice.
If you have a spare room, and are keen on a cultural and linguistic immersion, put your hand up! We are looking for 1 family to host for 11 weeks, or 2 families to host 6 weeks each, from mid-July to September. This program does not provide a financial contribution to host families. 

A presto!

As we commemorate ANZAC Day today, maybe even now watching the Collingwood v Essendon game, perhaps take the time to read one of the heartwarming stories from yesterdays service at school.
Due to the increase in student numbers, we had 7s, 11s and 12s at the ceremony and we were able to live stream the ceremony to 8s, 9s and 10s direct to their classrooms.
Taking note of the Year 7s especially at the front of the assembly, very proud to see them watch the service with such respect. Parents and families you would be very proud too.
Stories are often how we can relay what ANZAC Day is all about, especially to a younger audience. Our first story came from ex serviceman and teacher Andrew Duncan...........
The Australian Defence Force of today is made up of people from so many walks of life. People with a wide range of ethnic backgrounds, religion, political beliefs, and life experiences. Every single one of them swore an oath to serve their country, knowing that there was a possibility that service might lead to them being put in incredible danger, enduring significant discomfort and prolonged separation from friends and family. When I joined in 2009, we were barely half-way through our commitment to Afghanistan, and still had troops operating in Iraq, and on peacekeeping and reconstruction forces in Timor Leste. Everyone in my platoon during basic training signed on with the knowledge that we would likely be in one of those places within the year. 
We talked a lot about why weโ€™d joined. For some like me, it was because we were the current generation in long lines of military service in our families. Some joined because they thought it would be a great adventure, others because they felt like it would look good on a resume. For some, it was about straightening themselves out after getting into trouble as teenagers. Whatever our reasons for joining were, our biggest reasons for sticking it out very quickly became the people next to us. Regardless of our mixed backgrounds, personalities, and beliefs, we gradually became a unified team. Across my time in service, I saw so many people from groups that would normally be in conflict in wider society, put their differences and backgrounds aside because they felt that the challenges in front of us were a far more important issue than even decades of ethnic, religious, or political division.  
This phenomenon is nothing new in Australiaโ€™s military, but is an extension of what has been going on since the first ANZAC troops hit the beach at Gallipoli. Back then, it was the first time that our soldiers fought as Australians, rather than soldiers of the various British colonies that became our States. Sure, the New South Welshmen still served it up to the Queenslanders, and they would in turn roast the Victorians, and then theyโ€™d all get together to stir up the Kiwis. But at the end of the day, everyone, from every state, and from both sides of the Tasman Sea, put their backgrounds aside and pushed in the same direction. Even more importantly, the Gallipoli campaign saw Australian Indigenous troops and Mฤori troops fighting hard for their respective nations as well.
But hereโ€™s the strange thing about all this varietyโ€ฆ At no point in my years of service, or in the hundreds of people I served with, did I ever meet a superhero. There were no Captain Americas, no Supermen, and no Scarlet Witches. There were just normal people. Yes, they were very fit, well trained, and well equipped, but in the end they were all human. So you might well ask, โ€œwhat does it take for a human to be a hero?โ€ I can tell you, itโ€™s not much more than a bit of willpower, a bit of personal courage, a fair bit of being in the wrong place at the right time, and a lot of determination to keep going when things get tough.  
Real heroes come in all shapes and sizes, but Iโ€™d like to tell you about a few of my favourites. 
Leonard Waters was a Gamilaraay man, from Nindigully in outback Queensland. After the Japanese joined the Second World War, Len joined the Royal Australian Air Force as an aircraft mechanic. He wasnโ€™t content with staying on the ground, though, and became the first Indigenous pilot in the RAAF after ranking 4th in his class at flight school. He was transferred to a fighter squadron, flying P-40 Kittyhawks, and flew nearly 100 combat missions against Japanese targets in Indonesia and Borneo. On one of those missions, his aircraft, which heโ€™d named Black Magic, was hit by a Japanese anti-aircraft shell that didnโ€™t detonate, but imbedded itself right next to his fuel tank. After a very tense two hours, he managed to nurse the plane back to base, and landed it safely. He mentioned later that it was the softest landing heโ€™d ever had.
Another of my heroes, is Nancy Wake. She was born in New Zealand, but moved to Australia and trained as a nurse. While on a holiday in France with a friend, she met the love of her life and was married in 1939. Just six months later, France was invaded by Germany, and Nancy and her husband joined the French Resistance. They worked tirelessly to assist Jewish refugees, as well Allied soldiers and airmen, to escape capture and evacuate to Spain and Britain. Nancy herself evacuated to Britain in 1940, but quickly volunteered with the French Section of the British Special Operations Executive. After further training, Nancy parachuted back into France to arm, train, and organise French Resistance fighters. She was so elusive, and her operations so damaging to the German occupation, that the German authorities referred to her as the White Mouse. When the Allies commenced their landings in Normandy in June 1944, Nancy and other operatives in the Auvergne Group were instrumental in sowing chaos behind the German lines, destroying transport and communication networks all along the Normandy coast.
But my personal hero is someone Iโ€™ve actually worked with. Yet another great New Zealander that weโ€™ve claimed as an Aussie, Curtis McGrath was born in Queenstown, but moved to Queensland. Like me, Curtis was a Combat Engineer, and was involved in clearing mines and improvised explosive devices in Afghanistan. โ€œKiwiโ€™sโ€ tour was the one immediately after mine, so while I was readjusting to life back at home, he and some of my other mates were walking the same routes I had just a few months earlier. Unfortunately, Curtis was badly injured when a hidden bomb took both his legs. As the story goes, he was cracking jokes while he was being loaded onto the evac helicopter, and saying โ€œoh well, I guess I should try out for the Paralympics!โ€™ Less than three months later, I was watching the welcome home parade for Curtisโ€™ rotation, and as theyโ€™re about to march off, he steps onto the parade ground with a mate either side propping him up. He was only a few months into his rehabilitation, but once he got into position, his mates stepped aside, and he walked. He was a bit shaky, but he walked. The really mad bit is, 4 years later, he followed through on his joke, and won gold in Para-kayak at the Rio Olympics. Then he did it again in Tokyo, and right now heโ€™s currently training to do it yet again in Paris.

He might not be a superhuman, but he is my hero.

Over the last few weeks our House Captains have been in the Year 7 area during certain lunchtimes running activities such as King of the Pack, Totem Tennis, Bocce and Connect 4. 
It didnt take long for the Year 7 students to jump on board. Captains are rostered on for specific timeslots with many choosing to come down to all of them which is fantastic for the development of their leadership skills.

Thespians in Year 9 and 10 are exploring life in seventeenth-century Salem, Massachusetts as they recreate scenes from The Crucible, while our Year 11 and 12 students have developed their southern drawl as they rehearse scenes from A Streetcar Named Desire.

The WA Student number mentioned is displayed on school reports.From raising my kids in Kwinana, I know itโ€™s the extra costs during those school years โ€“ things like stationery, excursions, or a new pair of school shoes โ€“ that can really put a dent in your household budget.

And I know the impact those extra costs can have. So my team and I are doing something about it.

During Term 2, parents will receive direct payments of $150 for each child in kindy to year 6, and $250 for each child in year 7 to 12.

Itโ€™s support for all families โ€“ helping them to pay for those essential school uniforms, a new backpack, a calculator, sport and music costs, or even food for their kidsโ€™ lunchboxes.

The new payment is on top of our recent relief measures โ€“ like household electricity credits and free public transport for students going to school and everyone else on Sundays โ€“ helping to take a bit of the pressure off for WA families.

Sea Trials went very well with Project Down-Under completing the full trial in under 8 minutes. This is the first time this has been done by a team from Hampton at a State or National Final! Sea Tech Savants ROV looked very good before being beset with a series of problems including a corroded wire that interfered with their camera function and side motor that malfunctioned. They showed a great deal of resilience and character trying to work through their challenges and still posted a strong trial run (completing 4 of the 5 tasks) which is equal to the highest score any of our teams has posted in previous Sea Trials. 

Vector Projection had the morning to set up their trade booth which looks excellent. Im really looking forward to stopping by their set up and checking out their iPad display. They have taken quite a few lessons from their previous State and National experiences and really produced a quality display.
