Intermediate and Senior Winter Sport

NETBALL On May 17, three netball teams went head to head with Apollo Bay, Lorne Aireys Inlet and Trinity over at the Central Reserve for our Coastal Winter Sport competition. The morning began with our Senior Girls team (Year 11 & 12) who played extremely well but were unsuccessful against our neighbouring school Trinity. A Big thank you to the girls who played: Claudia Wisbey, Keely Holt, Jamisyn Holt, Tayla Robertson, Murphy Floyd, Elicia Conway and Georgia Lucas. The weather throughout the whole day was below average, with no sight of sunshine and non-stop rain. But that didn’t stop Team A and Team B (Year 9 & 10) who put in endless effort each game they played, and showed great

Kitchen Garden / Indigenous Food Plant Garden

A big thank you to Heather McCallum for her hard work in establishing and maintaining the kitchen garden next to the Food Technology kitchens. It began with lots of different herbs being planted as well as some vegetables and a lemon and lime tree. As native food plants and how they are used are part of the new Year 11 Food Studies course and Year 10 Global Goodies subject Heather has added a selection of edible natives. These include Warrigal greens, Bush peppermint, Mountain Pepper, Lemon Myrtle, Black Plum, Native Guava, Pulsane, Davidson's Plum, White Elder, Prickly Currant Bush, Murrong Yam Daisy, Pig face and Austral Storks Bill. Heather has also started a book which documents all rel

Girls Football

On Tuesday May 23rd, we had a team of female footballers travel down to Apollo Bay to participate in the Coastal Sport Division Competition. Due to a few late withdrawals, we were left with just 17 players, which would not allow for any interchanges during the games. Our first game was against a combined Lorne and Apollo Bay team. We started out well with Keira Coverdale exerting her dominance in the ruck, while Emily Sproules worked hard in the midfield. Jasmin Fowler was also finding plenty of the ball and it was Ebony Armistead who found space in our forward line to kick our first goal. Brooke Hawkins was really solid in the backline as well. At half time, a few positional changes were m

Year 9 Great Ocean Walk

Thirty five Year 9 students trekked from Cape Otway Lighthouse to Aire River West Campground for an overnight camp, then continued onto Castle Cove.

Cross Country

Congratulations to all the students who participated in the cross country on. The enthusiasm and effort by all competitors was the highlight and it made for an enjoyable afternoon. I would also like to thank the staff who supervised the checkpoints and provided encouragement for all of our competitors. The individual winners were recognised at the assembly on Friday.

Vehicle Donation

At different times throughout the year, we get offers of support from members of the community. The offers and donations vary and quite often it is difficult to acknowledge everyone who supports the school. I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge a recent donation. Thank you to Judith Malone for the donation of a vehicle belonging to her late husband, Ed Malone. Ed was a local A Grade mechanic who studied at Colac Technical School and wanted to donate his vehicle for education purposes. The vehicle, a 1996 Ford Falcon, will support our automotive students to refine their skills whilst working in the Trade Training Centre. Our College really appreciated the support of the Malon

Year 7 Orientation Camp – Queenscliff

70 enthusiastic year seven students embarked on an exciting camp adventure to begin term two. The destination was the coastal town of Queenscliff on the Bellarine Peninsula. After a smooth transition to secondary school, students were given the opportunity to build on existing friendships and meet new peers from other home groups while participating in a broad range of team building and adventure activities. The activities included Mountain Biking, Pizza Making, Marine Discovery and Beach Games. During the evening, Minute to Win It Challenges, Talent Quests and Campfires provided students with great opportunities to recognise the talents of their colleagues in a friendly out of school enviro
