Personal Development

As part of Personal Development for our Middles groups this Term, we visited the Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia in Federation Square to see the current exhibit “Who’s Afraid of Colour?” This exhibit features the work of a broad range of indigenous women artists, from both city and bush studios. The students got to spend time exploring the exhibit and learning about the artists’ various artistic, political and personal statements. Some of the students’ favourite works included sculptures of a variety of Australian animals created from bone and wire, deftly crafted batik banners illustrating Australian themes and a series of paintings representing significant events over a century of Aboriginal Australian History. We encourage all members of our school community to visit this free exhibit and we hope to continue to learn from exhibits like this throughout the year.

End of Year Activities

Our end of year activities program was extended to two weeks for the first time this year and what a wonderful way to end the year it was.

Students visited Bounce, Laser Tag, Bowling, Torquay beach and Highpoint. Students watched movies at school, had BBQs in the park, went bike riding, spent time in the art room and kitchen and generally helped out around the school.

In amongst all of this action staff had four curriculum afternoons and prepared for the new year and 2017 is definitely shaping up to be a very exciting year.

2016 Awards night and Art show

On Thursday the 15th of December the SRCS community gathered to celebrate the end of a very busy and successful school year.

Guests mingled and enjoyed the art display offerings from students over the year including a sound installation “Deathly Echoes” created by the Re-engagement group.

The formal part of the event kicked off with a presentation form Amelia from WISHIN who presented student-printed T-shirts and congratulations to the middle students who participated in the Love Bites Program this term. Next up, a group of students who showed particular resilience in completing the 19km round trip Sealer’s Cove walk at Wilson’s Prom took to the stage to receive recognition of their physical and mental efforts.

Special awards were presented to students who had shown an exceptional level of participation, effort and attendance throughout the 2016 school year. Particular congratulations went to Max Peacock and Rebeca Nichols, our two VCE graduates in 2016.

Other awards included the Long Tan award and Caltex allrounder for school leadership and citizenship, awarded to Bec Nichols and Evan Kontovagios.
