May 30th, 2019

Chilly winds and soaking rain mark the end of our mild and delightful autumn days.  But here at the College, these mid-term days are defined rather by a hectic array of student activity, energy and excitement, from STEAM Cup rounds to Knowledge Week debates; from SCSA training sessions to morning fitness exercises; from Production rehearsals to NAPLAN; from Careers interviews to High Tea; from Personal Project to VCE Dance/Drama Performances; Soup Van volunteers to Year 9 Adventure Camp; from a State Library visit to Reconciliation Week activities…..lot’s happening!

I wish to congratulate students, staff and families for the positive support and endorsement of our new approach to mobile phone usage within the school day.
