Campus News

What a happy and successful term we have had and what a pleasure it is to be part of such a flourishing campus. We recently held the Middle School Sports’ Award Assembly where we acknowledged the many sporting achievements of our students. This was followed by the Term 3 Junior School Accomplishment Awards Assembly which highlighted the academic achievements of students.

At the end of the term, we held the Middle School Arts Festival where the musical, acting and artistic talents of students were on show. We encourage our students to take up the many opportunities on offer here and we love to celebrate their achievements across all areas.

Good sports

Congratulations to Garren (Year 8), Jett (Year 8) and Ella (Year 6) for their exceptional achievements in sport. Garren represented Victoria in the recent Swimming National Championships in Sydney, Jett represented the Victorian Cross-Country team at the National Championships in Canberra, and Ella won three individual gold medals in the Victorian Snow Sports competition and was also awarded overall Primary Champion Snowboarder. Congratulations to these students.

Partnership with Monash University

Last week a group of Year 5 and 6 students visited The Generator, Monash University's central entrepreneurship and startup hub, a place for innovative thinkers and change-makers. The budding entrepreneurial students chosen for this opportunity had all participated in our Curious Minds program, $20 Boss, earlier in the year.

Our students had the opportunity to tour the Generator, Monash’s Maker Space and the newly opened Smart Manufacturing Hub. It was thrilling for our students to tour the high-tech facilities at Monash and to witness aspiring entrepreneurs bringing their ideas to life! The students participated in a pitching workshop with educators from The Generator, before meeting various founders. Our students watched and critiqued their elevator pitches of how they are working towards solving real-world problems in the areas of waste, sustainability, health and education. It was a great afternoon of learning and inspiration!

ELC celebrations

Recently we have had some wonderful celebrations in the ELC that involved children, families and staff.

Firstly, our ELC children joined the Junior School Book Week Assembly. Class by class, children made their way onto the stage and showcased their costumes. Book Week is an annual event that celebrates the magic of books and promotes a love for reading. It is a reminder of the importance of literature and the invaluable role it plays in children’s development.

Secondly, for Father’s Day we celebrated with a wonderful crowd of dads and special friends and watched The Mad Hatter Magic Show. Lots of smiles and laughs were heard throughout this special morning and the show was followed by a delicious morning tea for all dads and special friends to enjoy.

Lastly, on Wednesday, 6 September our team celebrated Early Childhood Educators Day with a morning tea. This day recognises the work of educators in early learning services and the important role they play in supporting children’s wellbeing, learning and development. We are so lucky to have such a passionate and dedicated team of educators.

Junior School

What a fantastic term!

Wow! What a busy term it has been. We have seen our students grow academically and socially over the last nine weeks and they have also experienced so many wonderful events. There was the Billy Cart incursion (Year 2), Chesterville Farm (Prep), Twisted Science (Year 4), 100 Days of School (Prep), chickens in the classroom (Year 1), Father’s Day Morning and author visits in Book Week.

There were also many STEM Week activities, including an incursion called The Little Science Show, and Forest Edge Camp for Year 3 students. No wonder they are all ready for the term break!
