RAAF Museum

As part of our introduction to VCAL we have been going on a range of different excursions each day in order to build relationships within the class.

Last week we went to the RAAF Museum in Point Cook and had a wonderful time looking around at the huge range of military aircraft from the last century.

Thank You to Grill’d



We’ve counted up all the tokens for the month of January and our guests decided that they wanted Sydney Road Community School to receive the biggest donation of $300. Congratulations!

Grill’d in Moonee Ponds are donating $300 to our school, thank you to the folk at Grill’d and everyone who voted for us in the token challenge.

The money will go towards our gym program. A number of students will be participating in a membership program at Brunswick Baths with access to the gym, the pool and all of the classes.

Community Compost Hub is Open!

As of today our new community composting hub is open. If you live near the school and don’t have the facilities to compost your kitchen scraps the good news is that you can do it here at Sydney Road Community School.

The hub is accessible from the back of the school on David St, the gate is a bit tricky to open so you need to pull hard.IMG_6156

Once you are in you will have the choice of four worm farms to feed. Worms enjoy all manner of organic scraps but don’t like citrus, dairy, meat, onion or garlic.

If you would like to sign up to use the hub all of the details can be found here on the Moreland City Council website:

Our worms were well looked after over summer by the staff at SRCS and are ready to be fed by the community.

Welcome back to term 1, 2016


RSS Feed for SRCS

We hope the summer break has been a relaxing and enjoyable time for all members of our school community.

Things at school are ramping up again for the beginning of the new school year, with the veggie garden looking fantastic, the chickens laying steadily and the worms getting down to work in the community compost hum, after surviving the hot summer days. Not to mention Sydney the school dog, who is literally itching with excitement to be back at school with all the students and staff she has missed so much over the break.

All staff will return to school this Wednesday the 27th of January, with students due to start at 9am on Thursday the 28th. This year we would like to welcome all those returning to SRCS, with many moving into new contact groups as well as year levels. We’d also like to make welcome all our new students beginning with us in year 7 as well as other year levels and we hope they settle in and feel at home ASAP, so we can all focus on the getting back into learning in term 1.

We wish particular good luck to those within our school moving into their final senior year, and look forward to supporting them in transitioning into the next phase of their lives.

This Friday the 29th all staff and students will go to the Melbourne Aquatic Centre for a whole school excursion. This is a great opportunity to get to know new contact teacher and students. Lunch and entrance fees will be provided.

How exciting!

Last Day of 2015

As we close the school gates for another year we are already preparing for the year ahead. 2016 is shaping up to be a really promising year at SRCS with lots of new and exciting projects in the pipeline.

As part of our end of year clean up Shelley and Eliza renovated ‘The Good Room’ and Stefan spent all of this week sorting out rubbish, recycling and reusable items. Whilst we were on camp Irene blitzed the whole school and made some great new spaces in the school. Betty did a huge clean up of the kitchen and Adam and Kate spent the week cleaning out the sport-hole, the sink-hole and the science room. Thank you to everyone who worked hard to make the school look so great, particularly the group of lovely boys that turned up on the last day to help with the last of the tidying. Thank you Che, Liam, Tex, Jasper and Broedy.

At our awards night last night we gave out awards to students that have worked really hard in their studies and students that contributed to the school community in the SRC, SWAT and Environment Groups. Reports were given out, if you missed out on picking up your report last night, don’t worry, they will be posted out to everyone today. Included in the mail out was a copy of this years yearbook, a very big thank you to Dawn for putting it together.

We wish everyone a safe and happy holidays and look forward to the new year ahead. Remember that the first day of school next year is Thursday January 28.

Step Into VCAL

As part of our new transition program, SRCS ran a ‘Step Into’ program for students moving from year 8 to 9, students moving from year 10 to 11 or year 10 to VCAL.

The Step Into VCAL program was packed with excursions; a tour of Melbourne Polytechnic in Preston, a tour of The Lost Dog’s Home and a tour of the Dawson St Police Complex.

In amongst all of the tours we completed some careers planning and got a broad overview of the VCAL program at SRCS.
