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.

Junior Sport Term 2

On Friday afternoon every week you will find the junior sport class at different skate parks around Melbourne.

We have done site audits on each park so we know what to expect before we arrive, we have a back up plan in case of rain and we’ve kept a few weeks free so we can visit our favourite parks again.

Students have the choice to skate, scoot, bike ride or blade and must wear a helmet. We have been so lucky with the weather thus far and every week have enjoyed being in the sunshine.

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!

Congratulations to Jacinta, who has been recently appointed to the Oxygen Youth Committee. 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.
