Girls Tennis

Our Intermediate Girls Tennis team set out to Boroondara Sports Complex for their Regional competition to see who would be crowned Champion of Northern Metro. In a very tough drawer our girls were brilliant on the day and competitive in all matches.

In round 1 against Eltham, our number 1 seed Shanae Watson led the way in defeating her opponent in her opening match. Eltham’s lower order players were extremely strong, and they managed to take out the game, meaning Whittlesea would now be fighting for places.

Ronald Mc Donald House - VET Hospitality/VCAL

Students from VET Hospitality 3 & 4 supported one of our VCAL students Justine in her school community project. Students cooked an array of foods for the families living at Ronald Mc Donald House. RMD House currently had 51 families staying with them and was very appreciative our home baked foods we provided.
Our students demonstrated amazing teamwork skills and I was very proud to be assisting them on the day.

Year 10 Photography

 

Year 10 Students are currently working on a unit called "Storytelling through Photography". Over the course of the unit students have learned about the structure of a Photo Essay, sequencing and editing through Photoshop.

 

Students focused on a variety of themes ranging from the relationship between humans and animals to the comradery shared between team mates. These are some of their images.

Anzac Day

Last week our student leaders, along with many other students in various clubs, teams and groups, marched in the annual ANZAC Day Parade here in Whittlesea. As always, our students conducted themselves with the utmost respect and did a wonderful job of representing the school.
