Head of Campus Update – 15 September 2016

Term 3 has been no exception. I find it hard to believe that we are at the end of term already. Reflecting over the term it is hard not to notice how much we have achieved. From academics, to sports and performing arts. Not everyone excels, but everyone has persevered and taken the opportunity to give it a go and for that, they must be congratulated.

I would like to extend our congratulations to Srinaama Adikari, Year 8, for recently achieving first place in the Senior Division of the 2016 Round 8 competition. On Sunday 11 September, Srinaama won the first place Macquarie Dictionary prize, a $50 voucher and earned a place in the Senior Grand Final at the end of the year.

Leo Terray of Year 7 (pictured) entered the Victorian state Robocup competition that was held on Tuesday the 16 August. There were over 600 students, 40 schools and 200 teams participating in the state competition at the University of Melbourne. Leo won first place in the Secondary Rescue team division. Congratulations to Leo for this outstanding achievement.

It gives me great pleasure to announce all of our 2017 Captains.
