Open Night

On Wednesday night we held our annual Open Night where a large number of families and prospective students visited the College. Families had the opportunity to meet staff and students, ask questions, view work from across the College and get information on the curriculum and the wide range of programs offered. The evening was a huge success due to the hard work by staff and an outstanding effort by all the students involved. I would like to congratulate all students involved for being outstanding ambassadors for our school.

VCE Physical Education-bioLAB excursion

Year 11 students took the opportunity to visit Geelong’s bioLAB at Deakin University last week, to further investigate the concepts and applications of their studies this term. The government supported program ‘Winning Edge’ is designed to give students a hands on introduction to university and research level anatomy, physiology and biomechanics. It is a great guide to exercise, health and medical science career pathways as well. The Winning Edge program is run from the brand new state of the art School of Exercise and Nutritional Sciences at Deakin Waurn Ponds Campus. Students experienced a variety of technologies allowing them to measure force, gait analysis and predict VO2 max and power.

School of Leadership-Snowy River Campus

Throughout term one, six of our year nine students have been developing their skills in leadership and independence by completing an educational program at the Snowy River Campus in Marlo, East Gippsland. Snowy River Campus is a residential school, which provides an opportunity for small groups of students from various Victorian government schools to come together and engage in a community program, develop new friendships and complete a range of team based activities and projects.

Coastal Swimming Competition

On Friday 2nd March, a small group of students represented Colac Secondary College at the 2018 Coastal Swimming Carnival in Apollo Bay. Students were selected based on their performance at our house swimming carnival. There were some excellent results on the day with Sam Johns winning his overall age section while Liam Vesey and Thomas Swayn were the runners up for their age group. Congratulations to all students for participation on the day. House Swimming Carnival

House Swimming Carnival

Monday 26th February, we held our annual house swimming carnival at the Winchelsea Swimming Pool. Some of our senior students arrived in some interesting costumes and the majority of students were brightly dressed in house colours. There was plenty of cheering and vocal support throughout the day and the novelty events once again proved popular. We did see some excellent swimming throughout the day as well and there were a number of records broken in 2018. Thank you to all our House Captains who did a tremendous job organising teams and filling events, the student helpers who undertook a range of tasks and to all our staff who assisted in running the carnival.

Well done to all students involved in the Athletic Sports Friday 9th March. The attitude and commitment by all students who attended was exceptional. There were some great individual performances on the day and I would like to wish all students who qualified for the next stage the best of luck. There will be more photos and articles inside this edition of the newsletter.
