It’s been hung!
Our beautiful collaborative wall hanging has been given pride of place in the main hall.
Over the past two weeks the middle students have been out of school and trying out different work places. There have been a number of students at Primary schools such as Will and Griff at Clifton Hill. Students in design and retail like Delaney at Min found Ena and in the community support sector like Tom at St Paul’s Hostel. We would like to send a special thanks to all the work places who have given our students these amazing experiences
As part of our 2015 wellbeing days students were mixed up into four different cross age groupings and each group participated in four sessions each looking at different aspects of community. During the creative session students and staff paired up and discussed what community means to them and then painted a visual representation of their discussion. Deb sewed them together to create a beautiful wall hanging that will be hung up in our main hall somewhere very prominent.
To help with the mid year study slump, the VCE class of 2015 attended an inspiring lecture given by Bob Brown. Bob shared his optimism for life and living on a healthy planet with the students and they really appreciated his sentiments.
We were able to attend this event with thanks to the Newlands community in North Coburg who donated the funds from a recent Clothes Swap.
At the end of term two we had many excursions and much fun. It was a great way to end the term and everyone seems to have started back this term full of energy and enthusiasm! Welcome back to term three everyone.
Steve at the IMVC organised a tour of the catering facility at the MCG for the cooking class. We checked out all of the different kitchens and heard about the enormous production line they have running everyday to ensure they can feed hundreds of people at any given time.
Our ongoing partnership with Odyssey House has continued this year with Rene working on Mondays here at SRCS. Odyssey House organise wonderful camps and this years’ was no exception. We stayed in a beautiful guest house in Queesncliff and our days were action packed. There were excursions to the indoor water slides, the Maritime Museum, a boat ride out on the bay, a visit to the Marine Discovery Centre, an animal refuge, a ghost tour at the Old Geelong Gaol, a dinner outing and plenty of walks around town.
Build Your Own Burger Day
The Tess and Clea group hosted a very successful Build Your Own Burger Day. After raising the funds themselves they put on quite a spread!
End of Term Concert
This term’s concert was particularly special with a visit from the performance group at Newlands Primary School. The primary school students performed four songs with accompanying dance moves and some very excellent rapping. The SRCS bands performed to their usual high quality standard.
End of Term Singing Concert
We are very fortunate to have a visiting singing teacher with us every Friday. Bronwyn’s passion and enthusiasm for the performing arts is very inspiring and this term there was a special performance of beautiful solos and duets.
A Buddy for Sydney
Sydney was very happy to have a visitor to the school who really understood the joys of lazing around.
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!!
