Welcome back for Term 4.  I hope that our students and staff enjoyed the holiday break and were able to take advantage of some sunnier weather.

The start of Term 4 is traditionally focussed on the departure of our Year 12 students and this year has been no exception.  This year it has been even more exciting start to the term with the School Ball being held on 12 October as it was postponed from earlier in the year.  It was great to see our Year 12 and 11 students, as well as invited guests and staff having a thoroughly enjoyable night.  We have also celebrated our Year 12 students at a final school assembly and the Farewell ceremony at Joondalup Resort.  We know that this year has been difficult for everyone and especially challenging for our Year 12 students.  The staff of Warwick Senior High School have done everything they possibly can to make this year as normal as possible for all students, but particularly our Year 12 students.  Good luck to all of those Year 12 students who have now completed ATAR exams. I know the teachers have prepared you well.  As the Class of 2020 move out into the world as young adults we would like to wish them every success for the future and hope they cherish the lessons learned and memories made here at Warwick.

Over the term break our grounds have continued with the improvement program.  A new shade area has been completed in the Year 7 area.  Two new outdoor table tennis tables have been installed and work has begun on the senior school locker area.  We are continuing to make improvements to the school environment a priority to benefit all of our students.  We are currently prioritising air-conditioning to classrooms and increased seating in the yard.

Canteen – Under new management!

Warwick Senior High School is excited to introduce our FareGO Canteen which is operated by CARAD. CARAD is an independent, community-based organisation providing essential welfare and advocacy support to asylum seekers, refugees and detainees in Western Australia.

Since opening its doors in 2000, CARAD has provided support to over 5000 asylum seekers, refugees and detainees through its Client Services and Volunteer Programs.

Our FareGo Canteen is a not for profit social enterprise that is providing delicious food to our students.  We believe this is the first social enterprise Canteen in Australia and that this partnership demonstrates our school vision of creating positive futures for everyone involved with Warwick Senior High School.  The official launch for the FareGO canteen will take place in December, so watch this space.  If you would like to learn more about CARAD check out https://www.carad.org.au/
