College Sport - Ultimate Frisbee
Posted on 19 Sep 2019
On September 6, Hawker College students participated in an Ultimate Frisbee Gala Day. Due to overwhelming interest from our students, we entered 2 teams into the competition.
Hawker 1 won two of their five games and managed to finish the competition in 5th place. Hawker 2 narrowly lost their semi-final in extra time to a team with Australian representatives. Also, they won four of their six games and managed to finish the competition in 4th place. This is an awesome result for Hawker. Overall, the students had a great time and were upright representatives of Hawker College.
Outdoor Education - Snow Camp
Posted on 18 Sep 2019
On August 14, Hawker College students embarked on a 3-day journey to Jindabyne. With the choice of snowboarding or skiing, students participated in a 2 hour lesson each day followed by free time to explore the trails. We had students with varying ability and experience; all who managed to improve over the 3 days… #proudparent
We were very fortunate to have clear blue skies on the first day, with conditions slowly deteriorating over the following two days. This did not deter the students who demonstrated awesome perseverance.
A group of students managed to get to the top of Kosciuszko and ring the bell. Overall, students had an awesome time away and are looking forward to next year.

Mulloon Creek Natural Farms
Posted on 19 Aug 2019
On Friday 9th August, Year-12 Biology students and a few interested Year-11s went on an excursion to the Mulloon Institute, a research-orientated farm near Bungendore. We studied restorative practices in farming, the principle of returning the landscape to its natural water cycle, and reincorporating native flora and fauna. A proper water cycle allows for far more productive farming and healthy environment. We conducted soil surface analysis, studied the landscape, and were taught the principles of proper landcare, by Dr Luke Peel. Despite the challenging weather, we had a great time, and are grateful for the opportunity.
