PEAC Celebrations PEAC students often enter competitions as a part of their studies. This part of the website helps celebrate and illustrate some of their many successes.
  The rising hills of crystal blue Topped with opaque white foam Crashed on the sand With an angry lion's roar.   But out past the furious crashing waves It is calm, serene. And if you look into its watery depths You are rewarded greatly.   Neon tipped coral carpets the sandy floor Waving in the gentle current   Colourful fish flit to and fro Through the rippling coral beds.   Now all that's left to do Is to fight the furious waves again.

Liam, Stuart and Radheya These students had to research their chosen creature and include this information accompanied by their own illustration. AQWA received hundreds of entries and three of the winners were our PEAC students, Liam and Stuart, both from Mount Hawthorn Primary School and Radheya from North Woodvale Primary School. Great job!
Challenge Champions PEAC students were offered the opportunity to enter `The National History Challenge` competition in Round 2 with amazing results.  There were an overwhelming number of entries from across the state and the standard was exceptionally high.  Whilst every member of the course made it through the first round of judging we were delighted to be notified that two of our students had been invited to a prize giving ceremony at Curtin University on 2nd November. Education Minister Hon. Peter Collier presented Casper  (pictured right) from Poynter Primary School and Hayley (pictured below) from Mount Hawthorn Primary School with Certificates of Excellence as two of the three finalists in the Primary Division.  The theme this year was `Legends, Facts and History`.  Following a visit to the Museum of WA and a workshop with local author Mark Greenwood, Casper and Hayley took their research in very different directions.  Casper indulged his fascination for all things mythological and produced a museum exhibit of the Minotaur in the Labyrinth.  Hayley was transfixed by the execution of the Romanov family but particularly the disappearance of Grand Duchess Anastasia.  She carefully constructed newspaper articles documenting events of the time and speculated as to what probably happened.  Both entries drew special praise from the judges.   Congratulations to Hayley and Casper but also to all the PEAC students who entered.
