Congratulations to Jack Davey and Robert Weatherall for winning Gold at the Under 16's doubles at the State Combined High Schools rowing titles this weekend (15/03/2015). In the singles event Jack first overall, closely followed by Robert who was second. A very dominate display by the maitland grossmann boys. This success is one top of the pairs 2nd in the state last month in the Under 16's doubles titles. A remarkable effort considering Jack had a wrist injury he took into the event.

Archibull Awards, Art4Agriculture's programme, aim to engage secondary and
primary school students in agricultural and environmental awareness through art, design, creativity and teamwork. Mabel is our life-size fibreglass decorated cow that was this year’s Year 10 Visual Design entry into the Art4Agriculture national annual “Archibull” competition. The class spent nearly two terms from the initial approach to a small group attending the final Archibull awards at Olympic Park, Homebush in November.The students had many tasks and skills to attempt and complete in order to fulfill the competition requirements; filling in surveys, liaising with the local media to promote Archibull, doing research to inform our design, meeting with our Young Farming Champion Ben Egan, discussing, designing, knitting, painting, creating a Powerpoint, maintaining a blog during the process and many more tasks meanwhile communicating and working collaboratively. There were initial designs to be considered and each school was allocated an agricultural industry theme to promote and we were allocated “Cotton” to help focus on combining Art, Agriculture (Cotton) and sustainability.
