This is an annual competition run in November and students audition and practise all year in preparation. A Stage 2 and Stage 3 team will be selected during Term 2. Our teams are always highly credited in the finals and all students enjoy the chance to participate.
Debating- our debating team is run by Mrs Bulluss and consists of Stage 3 students. In 2016 the Blackwell Debating Team were the area's Grand Champions. This year we will be involved in a new STEPS debating group and look forward to learning new skills as our debating format will change and include our two local high schools in this adventure
STEPS Book forums were also introduced as part of our STEPS Learning Community. Last year the event was hosted by Clairgate with "Flight" being the award winning Picture Book for 2016. In 2017 Erskine Park High will host this event
STEPS(St Clair Erskine Park Schools) are also involved in TOPSTEPS and STEPPING UP TOGETHER programs which operated across our 5 primary and 2 high schools.
Our school concerts were once again a hugh success for both students and families with so many students basking in the limelight and displaying their various talents.
