Excellence in Physics Teaching Award
Walford is thrilled to announce that Maria Caruso, Head of Science, has been awarded the Australian Institute of Physics (SA Branch) 2021 Excellence in Physics Teaching Award. This well-deserved award was the result of a nomination by former students, was supported by peers, and recognises Maria’s contribution to STEM – specifically Physics and her influence on graduates entering the field.
French Language Success
Walford congratulates Year 9 French language students Chloé and Emily, who recently sat DELF (Diplôme d’Études en Langue Française) examinations. Emily sat the DELF A1 examination and Chloé completed the DELF A2 examination, which is usually offered in Year 10. Both girls achieved excellent results, and as the only school in South Australia that offers students the opportunity to sit DELF examinations, we are very proud of their efforts!
Geography State Champion!
Congratulations to Walford student, Ioanna, who entered the 2021 Australian Geography Competition and achieved first place for Year 11 in South Australia! What an incredible result!
