Norwood Awards

Advanced Science Excellence Awards

Eight students of Year 10 Advanced Science were given awards by Mrs Harris, Senior School Principal. The awardees were: Tamsyn Williams, Sophia Knight, Caitlin O’Connor, Josh Loong, Ethan Dexter, Jacob Frazer-Williams, Mahalia Basford and Zachary Duo. They were awarded for their excellent performance in the major assessment task in Chemistry, which involved chemical reactions, types of chemical reactions, balancing of chemical equations and the mole concept. Mahalia Basford was the top scorer with 99% for this task. Well done students!

The Readers’ Cup

On the evening of 30 August, students, staff, parents and friends gathered in the Library for Norwood’s inaugural Readers’ Cup event. We had seven enthusiastic teams of students compete for the cup and some wonderful prizes, demonstrating their knowledge of the four novels (Coraline, Wonder, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Holes).

A big congratulations to the winning team, ‘Cheese and Biscuits’ from 7D: Saina Dhekane, Sophie Jones, Amy McLauchlan and Matisse Tucker! We are already planning for next years’ Readers’ Cup – so stay tuned for details!
