National Reconciliation Week Event
HOL Pizza Lunch
Our Hands on Learning Students prepared and cooked pizzas for a get together with current and past HOL students and Baseline Youth Services staff. The event was held as a BIG THANK YOU to the Baseline Management and Youth Support Officers for their support of our HOL students and program for the past 3.5 years. They will move on to support new HOL programs in other schools in the City of Whittlesea. The College are extremely grateful for their huge contributions to the support and development of our students and our HOL program.
Students studying Visual Communication Design learn about the various fields of design. For this task students learnt about architecture and created a house using the computer program, ‘Google Sketch Up’. Students were then required to create a layout that highlighted their design.

Year 11 Macbeth Incursion
As part of their study of the Shakespearean play ‘Macbeth’, Year 11 VCE students attended a performance and discussion session hosted by the Bell Shakespeare Company. The production allowed students to analyse key scenes through performance and gain a better understanding of the key themes and ideas of the play. A big congratulations to the students who volunteered their acting expertise and joined in on some of the performance!

Senior VCAL student
Our biggest Athletics Team in recent time of 73 students took on other schools in our district in a hotly-competed day of track and field out at Meadowglen. With a lot of strong competitors in our team we expected a lot of success on the day, and our students did not disappoint.
We had 43 students come home with a ribbon in placing in their respective events; a great achievement by our school.
