An enthusiastic group of year 9 students have worked collaboratively to code science experiments for the International Space Station.  Students worked with their Science teachers Mr Denley and Mr Worrell as well as with IT teacher Mrs Worthing and IT support Mr White to learn about space and use Python to code their experiments. They used a SAGAN module and Raspberry Pi to test their coding in the classroom. These students were involved in the Cuberider program that draws on a STEM approach to learning.

Fantastic news! Our Indonesian sister-school, SMAN 1 Tangerang, will once again be visiting our school early in Term 4, 2015. The students have a two week program in Australia arriving in Sydney before travelling to South Grafton High School then returning to Sydney for the return flight to Indonesia. This year there will be approximately 19 students aged 15-17 as well as two staff and the Principal.

We are seeking billeting families who are willing to provide accommodation, transport to and from school as well as meals for the visiting students. Could you please consider hosting one (or two) of these students with your family during their visit to South Grafton High School and return this note by the 11th of September. If you require additional information please contact Mr Avery in the Languages staffroom on 66421466.
