Associate Professor Charley Lineweaver engaged us all in the science of astrophysics discussing: eukaryotes, prokaryotes, viruses, vacuum energy, dark matter, extreme life, and the need for life to extrapolate to other planets - exoplanets. Professor Charley Lineweaver used, science, humour, and Hollywood to engage us in learning at the frontier. Engaging questions received engaging responses. Charley presented a confident and optimistic future entrusted to our emerging youth. Narrabundah College thanks Charley Lineweaver for taking the time to share the science of Astrophysics with our students and staff.

425 million years of Silurian history is exposed in the layers of State Circle's prehistoric rock. As we drive over Fairbairn Avenue bridge, we give little or no thought to the prehistoric marine fossils from 427 million years ago that are preserved right beneath our cars. Along with a walk around Geoscience's rock displays in Symonston our French Baccalauréat geology students experienced geological formations that were preserved long before the arrival of humanity on our planet. A most fascinating experience right here in inner Canberra.

During Week 15, Narrabundah entered two boys and girls’ teams for the ACT Intercollege Badminton, held at the ANU Sports Hall. It was a dominant showing for our students, with all teams making the finals for their respective competitions and ultimately taking the day out, demonstrating great skill and sportsmanship.
Congratulations to all involved in becoming the 2020 ACT Intercollege Badminton Champions, for both boys and girls!
Thank you to everyone who participated and supported the event. It was a great day out and I hope to see this enthusiasm in the future as we look forward to defending our championship next year! (Matthew D).
