Year 10 News – 25 April 2024


We welcome our wonderful Year 10s back to the historical St Mary’s Campus in Term 2. They’ve become very accustomed to the gardens, surroundings, classes and most importantly the canteen. Mrs Darlow and Mr Warner were very happy to hear of all the Easter holiday adventures. Some students relaxed and recharged at home while others visited extended family in Queensland or rolled up their sleeves to work on cattle stations in Northern Western Australia. We hope that everyone had a restful break and returned recharged and ready for the challenges and opportunities of Term 2.

As the colder months are approaching, the College has shifted into winter uniform for Terms 2 and 3. This means that pants or skirts, shirts, ties and blazers are to be worn. Our blazers must be worn to and from school, to Advocate time and assemblies. Student Advocates have been in communication with students and families regarding this and guidelines can be found in the newsletter and on our website.

Over the break, several of our Year 10 students have achieved great things and we want to highlight these. This is just a snapshot from the information provided to us.

Miller Niall: Swimming Nationals – Miller went to the Gold Coast to participate in medley relays. Such an awesome achievement!

Mia Harvey: Under 18 and Junior Wheelchair National Championships for Basketball – Mia was not only selected as a bottom-ager in the under-18 Victorian Country Team but also elected by her teammates to be the co-vice-captain of the team. The National Championships occurred in Brisbane in the second week of the school holidays. Mia’s team won the Bronze Medal match beating South Australia Country 80-44.

Will Whiteacre: Netball Nationals – after spending the last two years representing Victoria in the under-17s, Will was chosen to represent Victoria in the under-20s team. The National Championships occurred in Brisbane in the first week of the holidays, starting on Easter Sunday. Will had a successful week playing GS, GA and WA and his team won Silver after being defeated by a strong WA side. The final score was 51-56.

We know there will be many more Year 10s doing amazing things and we encourage our Year 10 students and their parents to let Student Advocates know when students excel outside school. We’d love to give the students a shout-out and acknowledge their hard work.
