Memorable Moment with the Run4Wesley Team

Saturday Week 5 was a special one with 15 awesome Inaburra students running in The Domain for team Run4Wesley with Mr Wadds!! These guys gave up their Sunday to raise money and awareness for childhood cancer. So proud of every single one of them (and Harry and Kaitlyn not photographed here) for such a selfless act.

Year 10 Geography Fieldwork Excursion

Our Year 10 Geography students participated in a fieldwork excursion on the largest stand of mangroves on the Parramatta River to assess the pressures of a highly urbanised wetland ecosystem at Sydney Olympic Park. The experience was hands-on and utilised a range of geographic skills, fieldwork techniques and spatial technologies (a GIS system) to assist students to understand environmental processes and interconnections in a coastal wetland ecosystem.

Congratulations to our 2020 Prefects!

Every year six boys and six girls serve as Prefects in the Inaburra School community. Following a process of leadership training, students in Year 11 2019 were invited to nominate for the role. Those students who took the risk of applying delivered a speech to the Year 10 and Year 11 students, who subsequently voted for their prospective leaders. School staff also voted, based on their knowledge of the students over time. Congratulations to the following students who have just been announced as the Inaburra School Prefects for 2020 (in alphabetical order):

Jonah Eskander
Thomas Irvine

'Recipes for Life' Cookbook by Year 9

Year 9 Food Technology students have been investigating various illnesses and their dietary causes. Part of their task was to research and cook a recipe that helps to prevent these illnesses. Each student was given a specific disease for researching. This hard work has now been compiled into their first recipe book entitled “Recipes for Life”.

Bell Shakespeare perform for Year 9 English

Year 9 had their first lesson in Shakespeare in Week 1, conducted by none other than the magnificent Bell Shakespeare Company. Bell Shakespeare’s touring ensemble, 'The Players', performed a lively exploration, interrogation and celebration of language and words, told with power and humour by Shakespeare’s characters, the actors decoding and demystifying words on the page, on the stage! We also welcomed a special visitor to watch the performance, Member for Heathcote, Mr Lee Evans MP. All agreed it was an entertaining and informative journey across the Shakespearean canon.

Success at the Australian School Band and Orchestra Festival!

Over 100 music students represented Inaburra on the weekend at the Australian School Band and Orchestra Festival at Sydney’s Conservatorium of Music. The first comment by the adjudicator was “Good things are happening at Inaburra!” The students performed skillfully and with musical sensitivity. Our Intermediate Concert Band achieved a Silver Award in their event and our Senior Concert Band brought home a Gold Award in their event. Well done Inaburra!

Band Gold Coast Tour Fundraiser

Last Thursday night, students performed at the Inaburra Music Faculty's Gold Coast Fundraiser Concert, featuring students from both the Junior and Senior School. Inaburra's community has a lot of hard-working, talented students and last night gave them an opportunity to absolutely shine.

The music program at the school aims to provide both depth and breath in musical experiences and opportunities, starting in the younger years and developing through to the Senior ensembles - last night was a snapshot of that journey.

Thank you to the music staff who weekly invest in these students and give of their time and expertise.

Thank you to the parents and families who support the students in their musical pursuits.

CIS Football Cup Girls Quarter Finals

A massive effort from our Open Girls Football team in Week 5 in the CIS cup quarter-finals. Up against a gun sports high school team, our girls fought hard all the way and gave them their toughest match of the tournament. We were unlucky to be beaten but we won on attitude. So proud of the girls.
