Year 9 Girl's Cricket

Year 9 Girl's Cricket

Our Year 9 Girls took on Lalor on our home ground at Whittlesea Secondary College Oval in hot conditions on the first day of autumn for the year.

Many of our girls were new to the game but the enthusiasm in training was outstanding, which meant the day was always going to be a fun one.

Athletics Carnival

Athletics Carnival

The College Athletics Carnival took place on the last day of February, and one of the hottest of our summer, on a scorching 34 degree day out at Meadowglen International Athletics Stadium, where our four College houses of Melba, Yarra, Barak and Waratah would battle it out in our yearly athletics meet.

We had a record number of participants on the day, meaning a long day on the track and field where students from all year levels broke old records for certain events, as well as new school athletes stepping onto the scene and dominating the day.

VCE Literature

VCE Literature 

Ms Daines’ VCE Literature class took a ‘novel’ approach to its study of Chris Wallace-Crabbe’s poetry. As part of their ‘Creative Response’ task they swapped pens for paintbrushes and produced their own visual responses to one of his most painterly poems, ‘Sunset sky near Coober Pedy’. The students expressed their personal interpretations of the poem by representing the creative act he describes-not in their words, but in ‘dashes, daubs, streaks, smears and dollops’.
