Recently we competed in the Interschool Cross Country at Adam Road Primary School against 25 schools in the Bunbury Region.
We are now the 12th largest school (up from 13th last year) and would be expected to finish between 10th & 15th. In recent years we have finished 6th in 2013; 3rd in 2014, 7th in 2015 and 2nd in 2016. This is a very consistent performance over time. This year Capel finished with the highest overall score across the four divisions and came 1st! Congratulations to the 42 students who participated in the event.

Students got the chance to explore the fascinating world of Forensic Science by becoming Investigators and solving a crime. Forget TV myths, it is time to see how it really happens.
The gold has been stolen and a Security Guard assaulted… but where is the loot and who was the
attacker? Forensic Science has the answers!
Students got to analyse the crime scene and interpret the evidence including UV detection, creating impression clues, fingerprint recording, digital microscopy, DNA modelling, code cracking and chemical testing.
Students, teachers and parents took to the footpaths to walk to school from all areas of Capel. There was a lot of talking, walking and laughing and it proved to be a lovely morning to be out a about.
The year 6 students got to go to Perth to stay at Woodmans Point. They got to take part in four days of fun visits, activities and exciting encounters. Many students returned in need of some sleep, but it was agreed that the camp was a great success and some students ate enough pizza to last them a very long time.
Bug Cub is nature based play in our natural bush environment. All students have an opportunity to experience bug club and be creative, playing with natural materials in our lovely bush land.
