Elwood College would like to congratulate 2018 Year 12 Hugh Cowie, and School Captain Sabrina Phillips-Brash for each receiving a prestigious Premier’s VCE Award in recognition of their outstanding VCE achievements.

On the 21st of May, our female Year 8 students participated in a marine science excursion down at the St Kilda pier. First the students examined a sand habitat restoration and penguin colony study, and then completed a shell survey recording their species and densities. Finally, they completed a litter audit and a nurdle hunt, and took part in action planning for a sustainable future.

For this year’s VCE Theatre Studies Production, over two nights, the students put on a show of two plays by actor and writer Steve Martin. The audiences were wowed by the standard of the performance and hilarious delivery of Martin’s witty humour – the Phoenix Theatre was almost constantly filled with laughter. A group of Year 9 students also stepped up to help out the VCE class, as part of the backstage crew and stage management.

On the 22nd of May, Elwood College held a Biggest Morning Tea Cake Competition to raise funds for the Cancer Council, producing a diverse array of creative cakes.

This year’s International Student Camp saw our students flying over the Bass Strait to Tasmania. Year 10 student Richard Kullman reports on the trip.
