Computer Science students Vanessa and Jack were invited to the Python Student Showcase to present their Year 12 major works last term. The showcase was part of PyconAU, a programming conference, which is held annually in Australia and attended by coders around the world.
"Trying to explain such a complex idea that makes sense in my head, out loud, to people who have never seen my code or played my game was difficult. Learning how to communicate on that level is not something you get to do everyday" - Vanessa.
Vanessa's 3D minesweeper and Jack's mandelbrot set generator were a hit! Well done students 👏 ... See MoreSee Less

Camp snapshot #2 // Murray River Canoe Camp
Our students take part in some incredible experiences. Have you ever wondered what they get up to on camp?
In this timelapse, captured by photographer and outdoor educator Lloyd Steadson, students on our Murray River canoe camp settle in for the evening, sitting by the fire, under the starry sky.
"After an exhausting day, to sit together and talk about life felt special. It helps to build connection, not just because of the beautiful sky, but also because of your collective experiences from the day," said Adrian, Year 9.
According to Adrian, it's camp moments like these that strengthen friendships and live long in the memory. ... See MoreSee Less

Camp snapshot #1 // Murry River Canoe Camp
Have you ever wondered what it's like to be on one of our Outdoor Education camps?
In this timelapse, captured by photographer and outdoor educator Lloyd Steadson, students on our Murray River canoe camp are busy setting up their campsite for the evening. Year 9 student William described the moment...
"Canoeing felt really challenging and tiring at times but once you arrive at the destination you feel amazing. I mean, I still felt tired but it's a really good sort of tired. You put in a lot of work but it's a really good kind of work."
Our camps are designed to challenge our students and over time they realise the right kind of challenge can be immensely rewarding. ... See MoreSee Less

This news clipping captures the excitement that was felt by the school community at this major change in the school's history. ... See MoreSee Less

Our Year 12 students were cheered on as they walked into the Cathedral for a special valedictory assembly today. There were both cheers and tears on what was a bitter sweet morning - the last day of school ever! We'll miss you, class of 2022. You've been awesome!
Hear from the students themselves as they reflect on the occasion and what it means to say goodbye: www.sacs.nsw.edu.au/blog/2022/09/year-12-says-goodbye/ ... See MoreSee Less
Great photos. Glad the Cathedral’s west door was able to re-open for this as well as the Memorial for Her Majesty on Wednesday!

On this national day of mourning for Queen Elizabeth II, we remember her many visits to St Andrew's Cathedral, where many of our students lined the entrance outside and also sang inside as choristers and occasionally had the chance to meet her [this image from 2006 sees Carl Salomon and Enzo Cheng (OA2011) presenting her with flowers]. Yesterday's NSW Memorial Service at the Cathedral was a fitting and beautiful farewell, featuring our choristers, and can be viewed here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=CMu9yf8TKwQ. ... See MoreSee Less

Four of our students competed in the National Interschools Snowsports event last week. Congratulations to Owen, Joe, Milo and Mac! Their efforts put the SACS moguls team into 5th and 8th position in the second and third division, respectively.
It takes a successful result at both regionals and state to qualify for the national competition and all kinds of bravery to launch yourself into the air while performing tricks. Incredible effort! 👏 ... See MoreSee Less

It can be scary to speak in front of a crowd. Almost all of us get public speaking jitters and that's why we think our Junior School students are so brave. They pushed through!
We held a public speaking competition earlier this week because we want to provide our students with the skills and knowledge they need to express themselves with confidence and power. Your voice is like a muscle, you have to use it to strengthen it. Bravo to all our speakers! 👏 ... See MoreSee Less
Well done !!!
