Year 12 Keep Calm and Carry On Week
Charity Boxing for Beyond Blue
On Monday 15 May Jack Dalton held a Teacher vs. Teacher charity boxing match at College gym to raise funds for Beyond Blue. The fight was a success with a total profit of $262.45 going towards Beyond Blue Victoria.
The wacky boxing match was a great success with around 200 students in attendance.
Senior VCAL student
Our biggest Athletics Team in recent time of 73 students took on other schools in our district in a hotly-competed day of track and field out at Meadowglen. With a lot of strong competitors in our team we expected a lot of success on the day, and our students did not disappoint.
We had 43 students come home with a ribbon in placing in their respective events; a great achievement by our school.
Year 10 Textiles
In term 1 the Year 10 Textiles students were required to use a selection of fabrics to create a quilt. They extended their knowledge on threading, bobbin winding and needle replacement on the sewing machine. Using their understanding of colour, shape, line, pattern and repetition they worked hard over the term to produce a quilt they were extremely proud of.
Our first ever Badminton team competed in our district. A strong team of four in Alex Hybinett, Edwin Johnstone, James Davies and Arij Ameen took on Lalor, Lalor North and Epping to see who would progress through to the finals.
Hands On Learning
Our Wednesday and Friday Hands On Learning students (HOL) have been busy with many activities and projects. This Wednesday HOL students Damien, Mitch, Toby, Sean, Tye, Brayden and Mitchell were seen working together as they continue their fence building near the Senior School Centre.
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.
