Term Two Activities

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.

MCG Tour

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.





Senior Camp

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.

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.

Build your own Burger day: brought to you by Tess and Clea’s Group


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!!

YGLAM Performance

This week the YGLAM performance troupe visited SRCS and put on two brilliant performances. The performances were VERY well received and explored issues of same sex attraction and gender diversity. We would like to thank the performers for their honesty and integrity and the beautiful way they portrayed very difficult experiences.

GetAttachment GetAttachment-2GetAttachment-1

Y-GLAM is a performing arts project for same sex attracted and transgender young people aged between 14 and 25. Participants have a chance to be involved in all aspects of theatre making. Over the last 12 years Y-GLAM has made 13 new theatre works, a postcard series, a 20 minute video and a community service announcement screened on SBS. No experience necessary, just dedication and enthusiasm. Rehearsals occur weekly in Brunswick.

Bendigo Student Re-Engagement Conference

This month a group of staff attended the regional Re-Engagement conference in Bendigo.

This provided us with an opportunity, not only to find out what other settings are doing to engage students in becoming active learners but also to network and form ongoing professional connections.

We returned to school feeling excited and have begun the process of planning how we can continue to improve the connection between students, families, our school and their education and wellbeing, into the future.

Core Module Certification

Recently we received official acknowledgement of achieving our first star in the Resource Smart program. The Resource Smart framework has SRCS working in partnership with CERES and Sustainability Victoria to make our school a more environmentally friendly place.

We began with the Core Module which is more of an investigation and policy stage and have now moved into energy efficiency. We are half way towards getting ourselves another star and the environment group have recently decided to take over the data entry of our energy, water, gas and waste use into an online tracking system which will enable us to see how much we are saving over time.

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.
