Biggest Morning Tea

A huge thank you to Chandra for doing an amazing job organising our Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea and thanks to all who donated! We raised $1026 (and still counting) for Cancer Council, who through research, support services, prevention programs, and advocacy, help thousands of Australians impacted by cancer every year.

We will aim even bigger and better next year with the possible inclusion of students and the wider community.

We would like to acknowledge our sponsors for raffle prizes:

  • Woolworths supermarket, Tuggeranong
  • Jindebah coffee shop
  • Shek the barber, Mawson.

Year 12 Flight Excursion to Boeing 737-800 Simulator

Year 12 students on their excursion to the Boeing 737 sim Wednesday this week.  It was pretty cool to watch.

Students flew in pairs as  Pilot-in-Command (left seat) and First Officer (right seat). 

The excursion focused on “Human Factors” in aviation, which includes everything from stress in the cockpit, to decision making, task saturation, communication and leadership.

Each student performed one 30-minute flight as Pilot-in-Command, before switching with their partner and repeating the flight as First Officer. 

All 6 students landed the 737 successfully, receiving praise from the staff at Jet Flight Sim Canberra, including Will (a licenced Commercial- and Multi-Crew Pilot) who spent 3 hours working with our students.

It was hard to pick a highlight, but Lachlan Heslop (current studying for his Recreational Pilot Licence) navigated a particularly difficult approach into the Swiss Alps, and Jack Chen (one of our International students, and aspiring JPL-employee) performed an enviable “Precision Approach” into Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport.  It was the softest touchdown!
