    Sylvania High School’s Year 11 Mock Trial team continues its winning ways and is now in the final 8 schools of the Law Society of NSW run competition.

    The team has progressed through the competition since February and takes pride in proving that their comprehensive, state high school is a match for the private and selective high schools. The team has beaten such schools as: Danebank, St George Girls and The Illawarra Grammar School (TIGS). On Monday 19 September the team competed against The Scots College at Bellevue Hill and was victorious.

     Our team was the Defence against a charge of murder. They successfully pleaded self-defence and won the case for the accused, but more importantly they won the Mock Trial which gives marks for advocacy, legal knowledge, legal writing and observation of Court protocols.

     Our successful team is: H Diviney, C English-White, A Lorenz, A Oluk, L Redston and A Rigg.

     The quarter finals will occur in early Term 4. Good luck team. We are proud of you.

  • SRC Escape Hunt Experience

    On Wednesday 17th of August, the SRC team participated in a Team Building excursion to an Escape Room. The day was filled with puzzles, clues, mysteries and laughs.

    We were split into small mixed groups where we were locked in a room which required our team work to solve puzzles in order to escape. 4 out of 6 of our teams were able to escape within the 60 minute time frame. This was a great result considering that the 2 teams who did not escape competed in the advanced rooms.

    Through the event the SRC enhanced our collaborative skills where we learnt about and listened to each other, negotiated opinions and learnt about effective skills to work as a team to achieve common goals. These skills have been great for our personal development and also to benefit our ability to serve our school.

    Thank you Ms Yin, Mrs Kranidiotis and Mrs King for this valuable learning experience.
