Tasmania Camp 2013
From Monday 28 October until Friday 1 of November 2013, 62 brave year 8 and 9 students and 6 braver staff made the trek to Tasmania.
We slept the first night on the seas as we experienced the Spirit of Tasmania, before rising early on Tuesday morning to start exploring the wonderful state.
The group loaded into a 70-seater bus driven by our capable tour guide Mike. We managed to squeeze so much into the week and got a thorough understanding of the various sites and sounds of Tassie, pregnant with a rich history.
We ventured to the peak of Mt. Wellington, visited the Tessellated Pavement, spent a day at the historical Port Arthur. We made the most of a Cadbury factory tour (and the cost-price chocolate in the gift shop afterwards), had a hit at mini-golf, walked the 50m high suspended bridges through one of the world’s 2 most protected forest lands. Fed some of Australia’s inimitable wildlife at the Doo Zoo, and flew back home by 7:30pm on Friday.
We packed so much into an exceptional week, great friendships were formed and fostered between the students and the staff over packets of lollies and lots of laughs.
A very successful camp, a big thanks to Mrs. Axiotis for leading the charge. –
I hope to one day go again!
National Inclusive Policies Recognised
On Friday 25 October 2013, Meagan Cook and Carolyn Montague travelled to Sydney to receive an award the College has won.
We have been awarded for "organisational commitment to captioning" by the Deafness Forum Australia. We won this over such organisations as the ABC, for our commitment to captioning.
In 2014, we intend to extend our inclusive policies to an even broader range of practices to ensure everyone at Forest Hill College has equal access to our curriculum. Well done to our fabulous staff for the nationally recognised practices across all Domains in the College.
VET Awards- Small School, Big Opportunities, Big Dreams, Big Achievement
Congratulations to both Mina and Pallavi for their nominations for VET awards this year. On Tuesday night Thea Kamvissis and Grace Broadbent attended the awards ceremony and we are excited to announce that Pallavi was the winner. VET offers students wonderful opportunities to pursue curriculum offerings that secondary schools are not able to offer. many students do take up these opportunities and do them alongside their VCE. the competition is very strong and both of our students have been able to demonstrate they are consistently producing outstanding outcomes within their courses.Pictured below is Pallavi receiving her award and Mina with "Toady" from Neighbors at the awards.
Performing Arts Carnival 2013
The Performing Arts Carnival, or PAC, as we all call it was a massive success on Wednesday of this week. Months of preparations and fine tuning came to the pinpoint end of performance this week. Red won the music, Green won the Dance and Green won the Drama, meaning Green were the overall winners. However, the smiles on the students' faces all day indicated that for many students this is one of their favorite activities at the College.
Congratulations to all the staff and students so heavily involved in this awesome event.
