The first excursion was to Etihad Stadium in Melbourne for a guided tour. The students…

First Game:

We played really well, but we were still learning which was okay. People waited for the ball instead of chasing for it, but we were still learning game tactics and play. We lost a goal but not to our fault, just well played by the opposition Bellarine. We started to develop more defence and midfield play. We kept our structured positions.

Dylan R in his first game at goalkeeper was amazing and must have stopped at least ten shots. Tyler B-M positioned himself well as our high f…

On Thursday 4th August a small group of committed debaters presented their arguments on the topic: ‘That Australia is a poor international citizen.’

Despite the challenging topic, all speakers put forward relevant and interesting arguments, and were able to rebut their opposing teams cleverly. All speakers are to be congratulated on their performances that evening, and for putting their name down for this extra curricular activity. The students who took part were: Bryce C, Ronan J, Tate E, Ni…

Spine Crackers Book Club Melbourne Excursion

On Wednesday 3rd August 2016 we did a tour of the Library at the Dock and had a ride on the Melbourne Star Observation wheel.

I liked the library visit , got Pokemon there, and liked lunch. Already been on the wheel. Jaiimyn W . 9 F

It was exciting to tour the library and we got to learn about all that they do there but the ferris wheel was a lot more fun as we could see the entire city.

Hands On Learning Update

05 August 2016

Over the past few weeks, the troops in HOL have been working hard designing and creating their own pallet furniture for their HOL shed.  They have made multiple bench seats each with a personal design as well as stools, pigeon holes and last  but not least, the centrepiece dining table!

The HOL team sourced raw pallets from Geelong Brush Company and then tirelessly prepared the pallets into workable timber to create their masterpieces.

A fine amount of teamwork and comradery was display…

Intermediate Boys Soccer

The intermediate boys soccer team coached by Mr Wang headed out to play their inter-school games at Grovedale Reserve on 21 July. They faced a great challenge on that day as only ten players were on the pitch. Though they were knocked out after the group stage every player worked exceptionally hard in the team. Cas (second left from the front row) chose to play until the last minute after suffering an injury in the final game.  Well done boys!



Camp Koala - Student Reflection

05 August 2016


Camp Koala

There are a lot of ‘what if’s’ running inside my brain as we drive in a pleasantly calm 17th of July to Camp Wyuna located in Bellarine Peninsula. What if I will just make a fool out of myself?  What if I bore them when I’m going to present about Lara?  What if I always stutter when I try to talk to them? What if they will find me weird?  What if I will be a loner all throughout the camp and so on?  But those…
