Build your own Burger day: brought to you by Tess and Clea’s Group


The students in Tess and Clea’s Group would like to run a whole school build your own burger day, where all members of the school will get a free burger for lunch.

They hope this can be a free event, so they are busy fundraising around the school to help pay for this event.

The first idea they will be running this week is a guess how many lollies in the jar competition, at 50 cents an guess this is great way to win your self some lollies as well as help get us closer to being able to run our burger day.

Good luck with your guess!!

YGLAM Performance

This week the YGLAM performance troupe visited SRCS and put on two brilliant performances. The performances were VERY well received and explored issues of same sex attraction and gender diversity. We would like to thank the performers for their honesty and integrity and the beautiful way they portrayed very difficult experiences.

Y-GLAM is a performing arts project for same sex attracted and transgender young people aged between 14 and 25. Participants have a chance to be involved in all aspects of theatre making. Over the last 12 years Y-GLAM has made 13 new theatre works, a postcard series, a 20 minute video and a community service announcement screened on SBS. No experience necessary, just dedication and enthusiasm. Rehearsals occur weekly in Brunswick.

Bendigo Student Re-Engagement Conference

This month a group of staff attended the regional Re-Engagement conference in Bendigo.

This provided us with an opportunity, not only to find out what other settings are doing to engage students in becoming active learners but also to network and form ongoing professional connections.

We returned to school feeling excited and have begun the process of planning how we can continue to improve the connection between students, families, our school and their education and wellbeing, into the future.

Core Module Certification

Recently we received official acknowledgement of achieving our first star in the Resource Smart program. The Resource Smart framework has SRCS working in partnership with CERES and Sustainability Victoria to make our school a more environmentally friendly place.

We began with the Core Module which is more of an investigation and policy stage and have now moved into energy efficiency. We are half way towards getting ourselves another star and the environment group have recently decided to take over the data entry of our energy, water, gas and waste use into an online tracking system which will enable us to see how much we are saving over time.

IDAHOT Day on May 17 – International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia

Staff and students at SRCS fully support and celebrate diversity of sexuality and gender, which is why we recently participated in IDAHOT day – the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia.

On Monday each contact group came to school wearing a different colour to show their support and recognition of human rights for all, irrespective of sexual orientation or gender identity.

To celebrate in true Sydney Road style a delicious morning tea was put on and our school nurse gave a great talk about the importance of raising awareness, supporting diversity and promoting the inclusion of sexual and gender diversity.

Middle Camp at Shorham

During week 3 all middle classes and their contact teachers went on camp together to the seaside town of Shoreham. They were lucky enough to get sunny weather for the entire trip, which meant they could do lots of exploring of the surrounding area.  Some of the activities included a coastal walk at Cape Schanck, a BBQ by the pier at Flinders, and a swim at Point Leo. It was a great opportunity for students and teachers to spend quality time together whilst enjoying some of the striking scenery of the Mornington Peninsula.
