  • Our Boarding Community enjoyed a -‘special treat’ on ANZAC Day eve as we booked the whole screen for the opening night of the new Avengers movie. It was a great way for us all to come together, an opportunity that does not present itself often given the busyness of College life.

  • It was wonderful to witness one of our new Boarders, Alex Byeham (10) perform in the College Marching Band during the Ballarat Anzac Day Services. Alex was front and centre on the drums and performed magnificently, along with the other members of the band. Well done Alex.

  • We are all looking forward to Wednesday, May 9th as we welcome many day students to our annual, -Bring a Friend to Boarding- evening. Boarders have invited a friend to come and experience the life of a Boarder first hand by joining us in the Precinct from 3.30pm -“ 9.30pm. There will be plenty of activities, wonderful food and lots of laughs. This is one of the highlights of our Boarding calendar.
