Our Year 5 students had a great time packaging goodies up for the Troops over in the Middle East.
Thank you to all parents, staff and students who donated so many items for this wonderful cause.
Our Fashion Illustration class was successfully chosen to attend a Fashion Illustration workshop at the Bendigo Art Gallery with Angie Rehe on Tuesday 31st of October. We started the day with a small presentation looking at some fashion history and learning about how Angie became a fashion illustrator. We were then treated to a viewing of the Edith Head exhibition, one of Hollywood history’s most significant costume designers. There were incredible illustrations on display as well as costumes worn by actors like Shirley Temple, Jane Russell and Fred Astaire. The students got to watch Angie at work, and she gave them some drawing tips before they jumped in and showed off drawing skills of their own. Angie was impressed with the talents of our wonderful students, as was Mrs Heaslip! Well done girls!
This week we received our copies of the Loddon Shire CD.
This album was recorded at Studio 52, Collingwood last term and features our Year 12 band ‘Comfort Zone’ (Tom B, Cyan N and Nick K).
Grab your copy from Jenny or Sue in the office for $5.
All proceeds will go towards ensuring that we can be part of the project next year with a new group of budding of musicians.
The Year 9 and 10 classes and Mrs Clare were recently shortlisted for the 2017 Victorian Community History Awards in the Multimedia category. Since last year, we have worked on the East Loddon Remembers project, digitising the stories of WWI soldiers and nurses from the East Loddon District with help from the East Loddon Historical Society.

The Preps spent their last reading time with their Year 12 buddies today. today the Preps presented each Year 12 student with a thank you card and little stress ball as a way of wishing them all the best for exams.
It was a sad moment for many. The Year 12’s and Preps have formed some beautiful friendships during the year. Tomorrow they will share lunch together as a final farewell before the Year 12s have some serious studying to do!
