2016 Smarter Than Smoking Kimberley Cup Carnival
During week 10 of Term 2, Broome Senior High School hosted the Smarter Than Smoking Kimberley Cup carnival. It is a major sporting event in which eleven rural and remote community schools gathered at Broome Recreation Centre to compete in a range of sports.
The carnival was a fantastic opportunity for students to demonstrate their sporting talents and leadership abilities. Well done to staff and students for all your efforts in what was a highly successful week.
Winners trophies were shared amongst six schools, with Broome Senior High School crowned the champions in mixed netball, boys indoor soccer and ultimate frisbee.

NAIDOC Day 2016
Broome SHS celebrated NAIDOC Day on Friday 24th June. The event started with a whole school assembly showcasing both Indigenous and Non-Indigenous community members. The AIEO team coordinated NAIDOC included Mr Karl Ozies doing ‘Welcome to Country’, Mr Paul Boon alongside Elder Pambella Boxer and students with a Didgeridoo performance, Local singers Nick Eastwood and Manny Manolis performing (Paul Kelly’s) ‘Careless’ and ‘Flume Bon Iver’ and Mr Andy Symth with Wayne M (student) performed ‘Dry River Bed’ by the Pigram brothers. We were fortunate to have the Karajarri Traditional Dancers from Bidgidanga and a group of Year 11 and 12 students showcasing their talents by performing a dance to Grease, You’re the one that I want. Our guest speaker Miss Megan Highfold gave BSHS an insight into her journey and life experiences as a lawyer and her goal to participate in this year’s New York Marathon and leaving us with a strong message to simply believe in ourselves.

ACADEMIC EXTENSION PROGRAM - Big History Program to showcase students’ work globally
Mr Hayden Brown and Broome Senior High School have recently been acknowledged for the successful implementation of the Big History program. Mr Brown has been credited as a Lead teacher for the Big History Program in Australia.
During terms two and three our year 7 Big History Project students will be filmed for use in the development of the Big History Project Professional Learning Experience. The PLE is going to be the Professional Development for new big history teachers globally. The Big History Project also wants to trial a new part of the course called ‘scoring as a service’. This service allows online submission of written work that is graded by Arizona State University, PHD students. The grade and feedback is then sent to teachers. This would mean that Broome students work would be the first 5 sets of work in the world used in this program even before it comes online in America. This places Broome Senior High School at the forefront of Big History Education nationally and globally.
As a part of the Big History Lead teacher duties Hayden will provide online interaction and mentoring to over 300 teachers in Australia and 1000 internationally. He will also be involved in the further course development of the Big History Project and showcasing the work of our students as benchmark of successful work. Big congratulations must go to Hayden for this amazing result and the tireless work that he has done to ensure that we have this wonderful learning opportunity for our students.
