Students conducting experiments L-R Lily Lau, Sayler Delves, Ali Thomas and Eden Saunders

National Science Week commenced on August 11 and students across the school got involved with lunchtime science experiments and demonstrations, including 'Methane Bubbles', 'Elephant's Toothpaste' and a titration competition where Junior School students had the opportunity to practise experimental procedures and scientific skills that they normally would have to wait until Middle School to engage in.

Eric Farrugia reports on the Live Music is Good for You Festival.

Every year our music teachers gather us together to perform at the Royal Melbourne Hospital's 'Live Music is Good for You' Festival in May. This year, all 22 Elwood College students did a great job at revitalizing the hospital community's soul and energies, as music is one of the supreme forces of healing.

Our college debating team is going strong, having won two recent debates in an interschool competition run by the Debaters Association of Victoria.

Past students Nuala and Niamh Clarke have signed with the Richmond VFL Women's Team.
