Congratulations to our Swim Team in the beginning of May for getting 2nd place in the JASIS Swim Competition at NJIS. We were really proud of all our ACG swimmers that participated last Saturday. They trained hard to compete in their swimming events this year. They were all happy, had fun and gained many experiences. Well done swimmers!
Special thanks to Mrs. Chris, Mr. Dhani, Mr Guy, Mr Wayne, Ms Bridie & Mr. Jaka for coming along to support the students. We had the most parent support out of all the JASIS schools. Thanks also to Haiko, Bill, Adam and Jaka who swam in our Parent/Teacher Relay. We believe ACG Swim team will continue to improve and receive many achievements in further swim competitions. (Mr Jaka)

Year 8 students designed board games for Year 7Wednesday, 19 June 2013 12:53
Year 8 Humanities students had the task to design and produce a board game that teaches basic terms and concepts of economics to Year 7 students. Each of the Year 8 board games included an introduction and instructions that gave clear idea of what the Year 7 students are playing and how to play it. It was important for the Year 8 students not to assume that the Year 7 students had any prior knowledge of economics in order to produce a game that was a good teaching tool. Winning the game required learning the content.

ACG held a Free Dress with the theme of “Green for our Environment” to coincide with a Unit of Inquiry being investigated by the Year 5 and 6 Classes where the Central Idea focussed on ‘Conflict Resolution’.
Students were asked to acknowledge the various perspectives of people in an issue of conflict and then make suggestions how to come to some form of resolution. The introductory lessons explored all conflicts including war and religious differences, with one class deciding to explore personal conflicts, which extended into a local situation, linked to an international and global concern.
