Experiential learning at the Shrine of Remembrance


In the lead up to Anzac Day a number of students jumped in the bus and headed to the Shrine of Remembrance. It was a great opportunity for everyone to immerse themselves in the historical features and memorial fixtures on display and to consider the ongoing impacts of war.

Back at school a number of other students spent the week baking up a storm of Anzac biscuits. These were devoured on Friday when the entire school took time together to discuss the tradition and meaning behind the famous Anzac biscuit and what Anzac day means to different people.

Boxing with the Middles

For the next five Friday afternoons all middle students are heading down to the Brunswick Baths to participate in a boxing class. This opportunity has been made possible thought the Student Engagement Grants Program at Melbourne University in partnership with the Baths and organised by Kate our school Lab technician.

So far it has been a great success, with all students getting involved and working up a sweat. We look forward to the next class!

After successfully gaining an interview for the position, Jacinta was one of three new youth members appointed over the Easter break. The committee meets once a month and will work on a range of youth based community projects and events, giving Jacinta the opportunity to continue to develop her interests in community service and project management. Wait for updates as Jacinta gets more and more involved.

Welcome Back to term two

Hopefully we all took the chance to relax and recharge over the Easter holidays after a pretty busy first term. Who can believe that we’re into Term 2 already? It’s shaping up to be a really good one. The chooks are clucking, the veggie gardens are blooming and Sydney’s looking particularly trim after plenty of swimming during her break. All students should be really clear about their learning goals after carefully reading their reports. Conditions are perfect for lots of learning.

Term One Music Concert

Each term students have the opportunity to perform in a school music concert, students are supported by an audience of parents, staff and students from all year levels. The term the various bands who put their musical skills on display did not disappoint, putting on an amazing show with a wide variety of song choices. Many of the younger students have never performed or even played an instrument before, so to be able to get up and perform is an incredible effort, and an event many of us look forward to all term.

Thanks to the VET students who did all the set up and sound mixing.

Thanks to all involved in organising, cooking and cleaning up during this whole school celebration.
