The Year 9 Community Projects Outdoor Education group recently explored the reefs at Half Moon Bay and the Cerberus shipwreck.

 On April 16 and 23, we were led by Miss Moloney and Mr Burton to Half Moon Bay. Once suited up, we prepared our snorkels, did a head count, practiced our safety communications skills and headed straight for the water. The water temperature took a while to get used to but once we could see the life below, the sight was amazing. Further out was the submerged HMVS Cerberus shipwreck, said to have sunk in 1926.

There was fantastic turnout for the first Anzac Day service held at the Elwood Sailing Club. Well done to college captains Taylor Dale and Maddy Blay who gave fantastic speeches. The college choir sang the national anthem with Elwood Primary students.

Students turned out in great colours and spirit for the annual House Athletics Carnival on Tuesday, 21 April. On a beautiful sunny day, Keats was the winning house with 1207 points, just ahead of Milton on 1182 points. Lawson and Byron battled it out for the final places, with 885 and 832 points respectively.

Pictured here are Keats house captains Lauren Esposito and Phillip Korzen with the College cup; and some of our best dressed students from the House parade.

Year 9 student Georgie Stone reports on a tour revealing a different perspective on a local landmark.

On Wednesday 18 March, the year 9s embarked on an excursion about the Elwood Canal’s indigenous history. It was a very interesting outing and I am writing about the parts of this excursion that jumped out at me. The information that makes people realise that we a closer to the land than we thought.

A reminder that all students must now be wearing full winter uniform.

Please refer to student diaries for confirmation of the uniform requirements.  Please label all items of clothing clearly.

Uniform requirements are also detailed on our website at http://www.elwood.vic.edu.au/uniform-and-appearance.
