Canning Vale College (CVC) was established in 2004. The college has grown along with the area and the team at CVC aim to create a future for every child in the Canning Vale community. At CVC we believe a strong partnership between parents, students and our staff will ensure we achieve our aim. Our goal of Creating Futures is achieved when each student has the knowledge, skills and values to successfully move onto University, TAFE or the workforce.
CVC currently has approximately 1700 students in years 7 to 12. The benefit of a large, new college is the variety of subject choices and resources including specialist teachers and 'state of the art' facilities offering every child the best chance of achieving at the highest level.
Write a Book in a Day Competition
Our Year 7 A+ Program English students were recently given the opportunity to participate in the national Write a Book in a Day (WABIAD) competition. Students were split into teams of two, and each team tasked with creating a unique short story of 4000-5000 words for 10-14 year olds. The books were planned, written, illustrated, printed and bound by the team of writers. Read more about the competition here. The two resulting books will now be distributed to libraries in children's hospitals around Australia.
The WABIAD competition is run by The Kids’ Cancer Project Write a Book in a Day Committee. Our two teams are aiming to together raise $480 for children’s cancer research through sponsorship, and seek your help to reach this target. 100% of the sponsorship donations are given to medical researchers around Australia in their search for a cure for childhood cancer. To sponsor our teams please visit: https://www.writeabookinaday.com/findteams1.php?school=902. The more money raised by the competition, the greater the benefit to kids with cancer!
