Examinations have been returned in class and students must ensure that holiday homework is complete and ready for the first lesson next semester. Year 10 subject selection interviews are continuing and a reminder about the Subject Showcase Evening on Thursday 26 July in the Senior College. This is an important opportunity for families to speak directly with the teaching staff about courses for Year 11 and 12.
Luke Aneja Performing in Wonder in Aliceland
Luke is the “Queen of Hearts” in the production of Wonder in Aliceland, which is a recreation of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland at the Eltham Performing Arts Centre at 1603 Main Road, Research from Friday 6 to Sunday 22 July. Year 8 students Elise Dunkley and Elizabeth Madge are also in this production and I am sure that they would appreciate support from our community in attending one of the performances.

Ella Trevorrow Ambassador for Pony Club Australia
Congratulations to Ella Trevorrow for her invitation from Pony Club Australia to represent our country in China as an ambassador from the 9 to 19 July. Ella with her younger sister Lilly (Year 9) were chosen with four other young people from across Australia to work with members of Pony Club China and share their knowledge in this international context. This is such a unique experience to stay with a Chinese family and the opportunity to ride at the iHorse Equestrian Centre in Wuhan while also experiencing the sights and culture of China. For Ella to be chosen not only on her equine abilities but also on her personal integrity makes this opportunity a particularly significant achievement. We look forward to hearing about Ella’s experiences when she returns next term.
Our best wishes to both families and the students for a restful break and some time to enjoy a wide range of activities.
