All students, families and staff are invited to our 60th anniversary celebration on Sunday, 26 November 1pm-4pm. The event will be held in the Science and Language Centre.

We have been reaching out to past students and teachers who attended Elwood College and before that, Elwood Secondary and Elwood High School. It would be wonderful to have a mix of current and past students attend on the day.

There will be music from alumni band Coco Chill, memorabilia and one last chance to tour B Block before its impending demolition. Due to building works, only a small part of the school will be open (all with wheelchair access). Despite unforeseen delays in our building program, we have decided to maintain the anniversary date due to strong interest from alumni.

Parent and student volunteers are invited to assist with organising memorabilia displays, running the registration desk and catering a Devonshire tea.
Please email elwood.co@edumail.vic.gov.au if you can assist. Thank you to the parents who have already offered their time.

If you are in contact with former students or teachers, please invite them along. 
Alumni are asked to RSVP with their name, maiden name (if relevant) and the years they attended by emailing alumni@elwood.vic.edu.au

Middle School Outdoor Education students learned survival skills on camp in October with teachers Mr Burton and Miss Griffin.

Here they are creating their own tents out of sticks, rope and a tarp; hiking; and enjoying the great outdoors.

Well done to the Year 11 Theatre Studies class on their successful production of After Margrite! held in the Phoenix Theatre last month. Staging the production as a team and reflecting on the process forms part of each student's Unit 2 assessments.

Nelson Gray has since made it through to the Australian All Schools Track & Field Championships in Adelaide in December. He came first in both the Boys U18 Para Discus and Shot put in the Victorian All Schools competition.

Also competing in the Victorian All Schools event, Evan Warman came 7th in the Boys U17 Javlin and Marlon Trevitt came 2nd in the Boys U15 400m and 3rd in the Boys U15 200m.

An excellent effort from all three boys making it through to this high standard of competition.

Elwood College students are invited to put their hand up for the The City of Port Phillip's Youth Advisory Committee.

This will be open to young people aged 16 to 25 years that live, work or study in Port Phillip with a desire to be involved and contribute to their local community on issues affecting young people.

One of the main aims of the committee is to increase young people’s involvement and representation in Council planning and decision-making processes. Council will be invited to attend meetings and speak with the YAC about key initiatives. The committee will offer development opportunities for participants and access to specialist guest speakers.

The Youth Advisory Committee will meet at the St Kilda Town Hall on Tuesday evenings every three weeks except for school holidays.

This is a great opportunity for students to develop leadership qualities and experience.
