Yr7 / 2017 Interviews with the Principal

Yr7 2017 Interviews with the Principal

Marine Studies

Marine Studies has been introduced as an elective course into Year 9 this year for the first time.

During first term, the students studied a module on Fishing Methods.  As part of this topic, a volunteer from Fishcare visited the school who demonstrated and taught some of the skills involved in recreational fishing.  This was then followed up with an excursion to Gunnamatta Bay where these newly developed skills were put to the test with some success.

As part of the module on Marine Mammals, the students also enjoyed a day on the Harbour whale watching. They were lucky enough to follow a young very active whale for most of the trip.

As this is a new subject, we are currently trying to build up our resources and we would greatly appreciate any donations of unwanted marine equipment such as PFD’s, snorkelling gear, fishing gear, hosing, boating accessories including old motors, shark jaws etc., or any aquarium accessories. If you are able to help, please contact the Science Department.  Mrs P Kennelly / Science Department



Interschools Alpine Finals

The Port Hacking Alpine Team competed in the regional championships for skiing and snowboarding during the last holidays at Perisher.  Our skiers  – Reese Mortlock, Lewis Hodgson and William von Herzog - competed in Alpine GS and Skier X, where they finished just outside the top ten.  The boys are a new team and they learned a lot about driving their skis around gates and berms, all valuable experience for next year.

Our snowboarders – Max Mrakovcic, Lachlan Atkins, Zane Studden and Isaac Lucien – competed in Snowboard GS and Boarder X.  The experienced team of Max, Lachlan and Zane came second and fourth in these disciplines.  They will now compete in the NSW finals later this month, also at Perisher.

My thanks go to Frank Mrakovcic and Mark Atkins, who volunteered as course officials on a freezing cold night on Front Valley and to all the parents who supported the team.

A total of $1500 was collected by Port Hacking students. This much needed money will be used in a variety of practical ways to help people who are in need. Well done!
