Last term at BCC we celebrated our annual PBS Day. Students and staff got involved in fun team-building activities focusing on the 3Ps: Preparedness, Participation, & Positivity.
Thanks to the PBS Team for organising the day and to all staff who assisted. Thanks also to the staff from Bluearth Foundation for facilitating the activities.
Everyone had a great time and we already looking forward to next year’s PBS Day. Check out the photos below!
Last week, a team of four Year 8 STEM students competed in the regional semi-final of the Synergy Solar Car Challenge, outperforming eight other schools to win the event.
Jasmine, Kirrilli, Carmel and Paris worked hard as a team to construct the solar powered car, and will now compete in the upcoming Regional Grand Final.
The Belmont City College team also met up with the Belmont Primary School team, competing in the Primary School Division.
BCC was pleased to host 14 Balinese students and their two teachers from our Sister school in Kuta. The day was spent with the Balinese students attending classes with their Belmont buddies, learning about Indigenous culture and then doing a session with our Year 7’s on how to make Canang Sari Baskets out of palm leaves. At lunch time the whole school was treated to a concert of Balinese dance. We all enjoyed this cultural exchange visit and look forward to their return next year.
