YEAR 12 ATAR HUMAN BIOLOGY

On Monday the Year 12 ATAR Human Biology students attended the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research. They were involved in their Next Gen Program that aims to engage, educate and inspire the next generation of medical researchers.

The students were searching for mutations with Polymerase chain reaction (PCR). They first discussed PCR and played a competitive game to cement their understanding of the PCR process. After this the students were granted access to a wet lab where they set up a PCR reaction to amplify potentially mutated BRAF genes of three patients, followed by electrophoresis to visualise the outcome. Students learnt first-hand how advances in research can directly affect the lives of patients.

Australian Math Competition

Last week, NOVA students in Year 7 to 9 participated in the Australian Math Competition (AMC).  The AMC is one of the biggest annual events on the Australian education calendar and has been held annually since 1978.   It has grown to be one of the largest of its type in the world with more than 30 countries participating each year. We are pleased to offer Lakeland students the opportunity to participate in this internationally recognised competition.

 

Good luck to everyone!

WA Gridiron Representatives

The 2019/2020 WA Gridiron season has just finished, and 2 senior students from Lakeland Senior High School were an integral part of the Perth Blitz Gridiron Club Women's team. The women's team went through the season undefeated, with a convincing 26-8 win in the grand final.

Grace McFillin and April Alan were both first year players in the sport, and excelled with the amazing athleticism and passion.

Only a week after the grand final, the Perth Blitz held their awards night, where the girls also received the following awards:
April Alan:
Women's Players Player
Rookie of the Year

Grace McFillin:
Offensive MVP

These girls, at such a young age, have huge potential for the future in this sport. Congratulations April and Grace.
