Year 12 Graduation
The Class of 2016
Another record 88 Y12 students graduated this year. All of the students have exceeded expectations, from our first Aboriginal student dux (Khan John) to the inclusion and graduation of our wonderful Students with Educational Needs (special acknowledgment of our SEN team). Our Y12s deserve great credit, what a fabulous group they are, hard working and dedicated, wonderfully supported by their parents and carers. And a very special mention to our incredible staff. We have great staff who by Year 12 do whatever they can to change students’ lives; and they do.

2016 Athletics Carnival
Wow! What an amazing entrance and start to the carnival with the four faction groups matching onto the oval in full colour and grandiose house pride on display. Thursday the 18thof August saw the 2016 Broome SHS Faction Athletics held on Haynes Oval. It was a time for our athletes to show their talents and for those more creatively based to show their support for their faction through some very interesting and fun outfits with super heroes, body paint head to toe and imaginative characters proving popular this year.
The carnival structure is set up to maximise student participation and engagement by having multiple stations set up in a tabloid format. Throughout the day and night students compete in the standard throwing, jumping and running events as well as novelty races, fun games, caber toss, and the do or die commando course.
Miller continued their dominating run in carnival’s over the last few years, and had another impressive win in the athletics carnival gaining 1stplace. Durack improved on last year’s 4thplace, finishing 2nd, with Riddell 3rdand Dampier 4th.
Congratulations to all the students who attended and participated in the carnival, as well as the students receiving the individual year awards.
A big thank you to all the hard working, extremely supportive staff that contributed so much to the success of the day. Thank you to the Phys Ed team who organised and coordinated the carnival, and to all the parents / community members that came down to support their children and our school.
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.
