It's not every day a meeting is interrupted by a delicious afternoon tea - some of our Preps managed to visit several staff this week and serve the most delightful high tea! We hope you all have a well deserved rest these holidays and look forward to welcoming you back on Monday October 9 for the final term of the year.

The Cobbler House Fundriaser had the Whole School walking around the oval to raise money for Wangaratta's Relay For Life which will be held in October. With some running, some dancing and some being carried, the effort was extraordinary from all. Thank you to the students and staff and in particular the Cobbler House Captains for their energy and enthusiasm.
Year Twelve students held a forum for our Senior School students this week to raise awareness of human trafficking and this crime's grave violation of human rights. After the multi-media presentation, students were able to hold a compassionate discussion. Thank you to our Year Twelves who independently organised this for our students.
Middle School Agriculture and Horticulture students made the trip up to Henty yesterday for the third and final Henty Machinery Field Day. Regarded as southern Australia’s single biggest agricultural event, students were able to focus on the use of a wide variety of farm products, agronomy, agribusiness and the science and technology of producing and using plants for food, fuel, fiber, and land reclamation.
The Perceptual Motor Program (PMP) has kept our Preps busy this Term with a focus on developing gross and fine motor skills such as large scale movements, walking, running, jumping, skipping, climbing, moving in and out of positions, balancing, crossing the midline, and building visual and spatial awareness. Thank you to our Year Fives and Year Tens for their help and encouragement of our youngest students throughout this term.
Congratulations to our Junior Age Champions in Athletics who were presented with their medals at a special Assembly this morning. Congratulations also to Buffalo and the Junior House Captains for taking out the House trophy for Junior Athletics in 2017.
Year Nines were up early this morning, joining in the Chinese Square Dancing held daily on the plaza in front of the Melbourne Museum. With roots in ancient Chinese history and said to have over 100 million practitioners worldwide, we hope the early start set our Year Nines up well for another full day of activities in Melbourne.
It's Week One and the final week of school, with Term Three finishing at 2.15pm on Friday. Year Seven student, Kelly Hirschmann, captured this rainbow hovering over the Middle School during the stormy weather we have had recently - hopefully this last week of school will see calmer and more stable temperatures before the holidays!
Congratulations to those students who were confirmed this week. The Cantabile Choir joined the Cathedral Choir, singing in the special service for the students' families and the congregation of the Holy Trinity Cathedral. Particular thanks to Bishop John Parkes, Reverend Ken Goodger and Reverend David Jones for supporting our young people.
It appears that in spite of the Football Finals, or because of it, the last of the “older people training sessions” was held this weekend on the College Oval. Certainly, it has been a long campaign – three sessions in total with long forgotten injuries surfacing in between! Thank you to the parents and friends who joined in; surely the CCW Oldies are becoming a force to be reckoned with on the field!?
