Self Portrait - Charlotte Graham

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.

Hi, I'm Corey Kelly, School Council President, I'd like to welcome you all back to term two.

There are a few things I'd like to update you on; some just for information, others that we are seeking your support and assistance with.

Social Media, Bullying, Harassment & Defamation 

Welcome back Senior School students and parents! We hope you had a restful break and that students used the opportunity to revise and study, to be confidently beginning the new term. Term 2 is a very busy time with the completion of Units 1 & 3, mid year exams, the General Achievement Test (GAT), reports and the beginning of Units 2 & 4. Please take note of the following important dates.

 

Important Dates:

St Kilda Mums Donations

St Kilda Mums is an organisation that helps single parents by giving them donated baby goods. Anyone who would like to or is able to can donate items at the College, or students can bring the items to the VCE Centre. The following list outlines what the charity group are currently looking for:

Cooking at Fareshare

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.

Entertainment Book

The Science department has registered again for the 2015/2016-Entertainment Book fundraiser to help fund some of the fantastic Science Week activities later this year. Although the current book is still in action till the 1st of June, if you order the new one now you are in store for early bird offers and you can start using it along with the old one straight away.

Science Students

Ten Year 10 and 11 students went to The Gene Technology Access Center (GTAC) with Ms Greer to participate in a series of fun and interesting activities. We began with a morning address where we learnt about ethics and the treatment of the animals they do testing on and the care they receive. We completed a lab experiment on addiction studying how drug addiction works and the effects it has on the brain. It was fantastic working with a Scientist and using specialised equipment.

Science Students

Year 10 Get the Edge Science class attended an excursion at the Gene Access Technology Centre recently. Students undertook a program that enabled them to learn forensic techniques such as gel-electrophoresis and laboratory skills that they applied to solving a murder case. Students had a lot of fun (particularly using the micro-pipettes and having DNA model building races) and were able to revise and extend their knowledge of DNA and genetics.

YEAR 8 CRICKET – Thursday 12 March 2015

In the first match we played Epping SC, and after winning the toss and electing to bat first, we were skittled for a total of 32 runs. Epping then made the required runs with three wickets remaining in their innings. Lewis Kambouris and Blake Dennehy both took bowling honours with two wickets apiece.
