Things have been busy and exciting at Sowilo this month :o) Just the way we like it !!
Sustainability: Since our new pergola has been installed the Sustainability Program is taking off. Lots of plants, soil, fish tanks and sculptures are popping up everywhere !! Phil and Dave are developing a program whereby students will be able to get their hands dirty and get some fresh air.
Pirates: The second modelling photo shoot took place last Monday at Port Beach. The girls had a lot of fun and even got in the ocean in the cold !! The photos should turn out great too! Well done girls !!
Facebook: If you haven't already liked Sowilo's facebook page, feel free to stop by! We have been adding lots of great photos and updates lately, so it's a good way of keeping up with all the latest happenings.
Incursions: The teachers have been busy orgainising some great incursions and excursions this term! We have been lucky to have an Aboriginal Bush Tucker and Art workshop which everyone seemed to enjoy :o) Very famous Aboriginal artist, Sheila Humphries, came in to share her story and demonstrate her artwork. Students created their own art piece as part of the workshop which are now hanging proudly on our walls :o)
Here is the team before their second modelling shoot at Port Beach - theme was pirates and sailors !! Thanks to all the volunteers that assisted with hair and make up :o)

It's been a hive of activity at Sowilo this term! We were lucky enough to have our youth work prac student, Kayla, organise a modelling shoot with some of the girls from Sowilo. Kayla has been volunteering her time since her prac time with us and the girls have loved the photo shoots. Hopefully there'll be more photos to follow. Thanks to Xpressions Photography for donating their services to Sowilo and all the assistants that helped the girls out with hair and make-up. It meant heaps to the girls :o)
Here are the girls after their first ever modelling shoot :o) Well done girls!
Welcome back to all of our students for 2013. We hope you have a wonderful year and enjoy our new hands on curriculum! We are going to have alot of fun this year!
Well done to those students recently who have finished their 1a and 1b studies! Many of you finishing it much faster than if you were in mainstream. A special mention needs to be put out there to Jacqui who finished 1a maths in a month and received the highest A at Sowilo in 1A maths ever! Also finishing off her last assessment with 100% !
