Orientation Day

Year 6 students visited Elwood College today for the first of three orientation days for next year’s Year 7 students. 

Over the course of the day, they participated in various activities and got to know te school, the teachers and their future peers.

Year 6s Kaleb, Oliver, Fodla and Anouk all had a fun day.

The four students spoke of how they were previously a little worried about making friends in high school, but found it really easy to make friends during the orientation.

Congratulations to Peggy Lucas (Year 12) and Drew Gibson (Year 10) for receiving the ADF Long Tan Youth Leadership & Teamwork Award. 

The Year 7s and 8s each had a fun and successful day facing off against other schools in table tennis, ultimate frisbee, basketball and futsal.

We had our Year 8s go out on sport on Friday the 16th.
Boys and Girls table tennis had a great day at MSAC, improving heaps throughout the day but unluckily falling short in all their games. They both came extremely close to Glen Eira and Beaumaris.

Congratulations to Year 7 student Lachlan Rosenberger and his teammates for winning Best Film at the Hear For You Film Festival in Sydney on Thursday 21st August.

Hear For You is an organisation that supports deaf teenagers, and runs a yearly film festival in which deaf or hard of hearing secondary school students have the opportunity to script, shoot and edit a film for entry into a nationwide competition.

This year's theme was 'friendship'.
