Year 8 Volleyball

Whittlesea Secondary College hosted our district Volleyball for our Year 8s. Playing against nine other schools, it was a tough day of competition where a lot of ability was shown.

Our girls completed their three games with one big win against Gilson College. The two games that we lost were close encounters where our girls fought gallantly but were beaten by physically bigger sides.

Holocaust Museum

On the 27th of March the students in Year 10 History went on an excursion to the Holocaust Centre in Elsternwick. Whilst we were there we saw numerous sources of first hand evidence of what happened during World War Two and we heard stories from survivors David and Abraham.

Intermediate Girls Cricket Sports Report     

Our Year 9 Girls were the first team to reach the Northern Metropolitan Round in 2017 for Intermediate Cricket. A very excited team ventured out to Donath Reserve to take on a tough pool to be named the best in our Region.

Out of our three games, we were victorious in our first against Montmorency, who were virtually non-existent against our consistent bowling and sharp fielding.

Senior Boys Tennis

Our Senior Boys Tennis team went in as hot favourites in our Whittlesea Division Round at Lalor tennis courts in what was wet and miserable conditions. This current team made the finals of Regionals in 2016 and we started our quest to go one step better with a bang.

In what was nothing short of a complete dominant display of tennis, Whittlesea defeated other schools in a near perfect display, dropping only 2 games in the entire competition, an amazing feat.

VET Hospitality 

As part of our 2nd year VET Hospitality workplace training, students were able to utilise their skills and volunteer their time at Fare Share.
Fare Share provides meals for homeless and disadvantaged people of Victoria. On the day students prepared and cooked 1100 sausage rolls, packed and labelled 1000 quiches, lined 900 quiche dishes with pastry and chopped 120kg of capsicums all in a 3 hour period.
