Year 10 Art

In Year 10 Art, we have just completed a drawing unit inspired by the work of Laith McGregor. Students used gridding and rendering techniques to create biro drawings of themselves and their peers. Once complete students had the option of adding a watercolour background to compliment their subject.

Great News from the Library

We are open from 8.30 am, come in and keep warm, keep the librarians company or relax and prepare for the day ahead.

Keepers of the Books?

Not really. We don’t buy books to decorate the shelves. Librarians love it when you borrow books. Make a librarian happy today, borrow a book.

But what should I Read?

Easy! Ask. All the library staff love to read books. We also love to talk about books.

How do I know if it’s a good book?

Would we lie to you?

Unit 3 and 4 Visual Communication Design

Visual Communication Design encourages students to think creatively, critically and reflectively to produce two final designs that are accompanied by a folio of work. Students look at three fields of design, environmental, industrial and communication. This year every individual participating in the subject created designs that reflected their personal interest.

The Whittlesea Secondary College Track and Field team ventured out to Meadowglen in Epping for the Northern Metropolitan Regional Championships to compete for who would be the best athletes in Northern Melbourne, and a spot at the state Championships in October. We had a dozen of our best competitors out representing the school in what was a tough day of competition.

Ethan Frawley in Year 8 competed in two events for the day in the 800m as well as the 1500m, in which he came 5th and 9th respectively.

Marnie Wills in Year 9 competed in the 800m in which she came 5th.

The Year 7 Girls Basketball team went out on the 14th of September to Mill Park Stadium to play against some tough competition. Although many girls had not played basketball outside of school they did exceedingly well against girls who played representative basketball.

The first game was against The Lakes Secondary College and was evenly matched. The girls went out very excited about their first game and quickly got the feel of playing together in a team. After some great shooting by Zoe Groves and Jessie Plant the girls were run away winners 22 to 5.

School for Student Leadership

During nine weeks in Term 3, five Year 9 students participated in the School for Student Leadership at the Gnurad-Gundidj campus in the western district of Victoria. Mitchell Allen, Paige Brice, Josh Biancon, Trent Stoneham and Jamie Kupisz all represented our College extremely well. Each term, up to 45 students from all parts of Victoria live full-time at the campus to develop leadership skills, participate in various outdoor team building activities and expeditions and work as a team to develop a Community Learning Project.

Year 8 Basketball

Year 8 Boys Basketball

On Friday 2nd of September, the Year 8 Boys basketball team went to Mill Park Stadium to play other local schools in a basketball round robin.

The boys' first game was against The Lakes A team. The boys couldn’t wait to get into the game and came out firing. The Lakes held their ground and it was a close match at half time, but the boys picked up the pace and ran away with the game.  Finals scores were 29 to 21.

Thai Beef Salad

Thai Beef Salad

This week in Café Culture, students made a Thai Beef Salad using lots of fresh lettuce mix, coriander, mint, red onion and a marinated steak with a spicy chilli dressing.


All students' presentation of the meal was exceptional; a meal worth serving in a restaurant.

Ms Vine- Ice Bucket Challenge

The Ice Bucket Challenge

Some very brave staff participated in the ‘Ice Bucket’ challenge during August, with proceeds going to raise awareness for Motor Neurone Disease and in particular former teacher Mr Reiter, who unfortunately is currently battling with the illness. Many staff and students feel particularly touched by the cause.

These photos show Ms Vine, Mr Bumpstead and Mr Hiho having a bucket of ice water tipped over their heads on a below 15 degree day.

Thanks to everyone who supported the cause and are still doing so.
