Last year Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander students collaborated with Phil Murray, then Koorie Education Support Officer, and Sarah Perry to create a contemporary mural. This mural is a reminder of past, present and future Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and to recognise the rich Aboriginal heritage of the region and acknowledge the Wurundjeri Willum Clan of the Kulin nations as the traditional custodians of this land.
Year 12 Art students visited the Bendigo Art Gallery to see the works of Patricia Piccinini and Ben Quilty. Students studied Piccinini's sculpture 'We Are Family' in Year 11. Piccinini is a contemporary artist whose troubling depictions of transgenic life portray many of the complex ethical issues around bioengineering. This year students studied Ben Quilty’s work 'Smashed'. Quilty is undoubtedly one of Australia’s best-known and highly regarded contemporary painters.

The Student Leaders from the College were invited to march in the ANZAC Day Parade in Whittlesea again this year. It was a great privilege to be able to be a part of this special day of commemoration, particularly in the 100th year. Wreaths were laid on behalf of the College by Nicholas Spriggs, Brandon Burrowes, Alyssa Gornelle, Joshua Blair and Jackon Abeling. Joining these students in the march were Anastasia Avramopolous, Mikayla Gibbons, Will Kilby and Jack Adams.
The Performing Arts Department has had a busy start to term 2 with three music performances.
As part of their folio outcomes, Year 11 Art students were asked to find ways to represent characteristics of themselves in their work.
Linus Kay, Shannon Coburn and Nathan Hocking have used a variety of media, techniques and processes to give meaning to their work. Each has developed a way to say something about themselves through a visual medium.

Senior VCAL went to Fareshare for the first time this year. We visited three times last year and it was surprisingly good fun. We met up at Hungry Jacks in Southern Cross Station. From there we headed off to North Richmond. Once we got there we checked in and watched a short video on how the session works and what it does for the community. We worked in the kitchen for 4 hours then we were dismissed.
