It is Week One this week and students involved in the 2018 Senior Production "A Chorus Line" will be in their final days of rehearsals, ready for performances on Friday and Saturday night at the Wangaratta Performing Arts Centre. There has been an incredible amount of work this term from students, staff and parents and it is shaping up to be an extravagant 'all dancing, all singing' show.
Congratulations Jack! The 200m final was an incredible win at the Australian Junior Athletics Championship.
The Australian Junior Athletics Championships are being held in Sydney this weekend with some outstanding results. Jack Boulton is now the Men’s U15 200m and 100m Champion, winning each race. As the commentator says in the footage from the 100m today - ‘A Boulton from the Blue!’
This week Year Six Ovens were involved in a Bike Education session, a small ride on the Rail Trail from the school’s campus, and today they are riding on the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail from Bright to Myrtleford. No doubt, they will bring back stories to share with Year Six Docker students who will commence their Bike Education next week.
If you missed The Chronicle yesterday, our 'Unicyle 4 Sight' team made it to the Front Page. It is just over one week until they start their challenge and we wish them well in the lead up to next Saturday March 24.
"You don't see many people doing it, they're pretty cool and it's something different," Harvey Correll said.
So, this happened today! This morning when students turned up for school they found what was thought to be space junk littering the school grounds. Students from Prep to Year Ten then engaged in a timed writing exercise about the possibilities behind this occurrence - there were some wonderfully creative narratives written. Particular thanks to the Wangaratta CFA for coming to check that the grounds were safe from any harmful substances.
Wonderful to see the "Unicycle 4 Sight" team on the news last night.
Year Fives have been learning about the function and structure of plants in Science and today they were designing various types of root structures, such as butress, stilt and tap. These will then be tested to determine the most favourable environmental conditions for each different root structure, such as mountainous, coastal and tropical ecosystems.
We have been fortunate to have the opportunity to work alongside teachers from our sister school Cobram Anglican Grammar School (CAGS) this term. Visiting us today were Mr Scandrett in Year One and Mr Davis in Year Three, whilst Ms Parkes and Ms Groom spent the day at CAGS collaborating with Year Four teachers.
As part of International Women's Day 2018, Senior School staff and students gathered for the annual Zonta Club of Wangaratta Young Women’s Career Breakfast at the Gateway Hotel this morning. Students heard from inspiring mentors and guest speakers with the event offering young female students the opportunity to hear local women discuss their chosen career pathways. Thank you Zonta for your support and encouragement of young women in this region.
Prime 7 News visited College today to interview the students behind 'Unicycle for Sight', a team raising funds for The Fred Hollows Foundation by riding their unicycles 34 km from Myrtleford to Bright later this month. Every cent that is raised will go directly to The Fred Hollows Foundation and it has been wonderful to see Year Six students and the wider school community offer support and encouragement to Jack, Harvey and Will.

Director of Studies, Mrs Julie Findlay, and Senior School girls attended this morning's "Women in STEM" breakfast at Charles Sturt University Regional Study Centre to learn more about career pathways and opportunities.
