Congratulations to all competitors who placed first and have qualified for the School Sport Victoria Track & Field Championships in Melbourne. They will be heading to Albert Park on Monday 17th October. We wish them the best of luck.

Our students and staff saw out Term 3 with a whole school assembly on Thursday where our Executive Principal, Barbara O’Brien reflected on our school value of aspiration.

Mrs O’Brien spoke about the effort she sees every day from students and staff to aspire to excellence in all that we do. She reminded everyone to dream big, because nothing is ever out of reach and reflected on the story of Indigenous icon, Eddie Betts who despite all odds, went on to play AFL football and is now one of the most celebrated and respected players of the game. School assembly saw some fantastic performances from our music students, as well as a senior dance group and a showcase of works from the GSSC arts department. Assembly was also an opportunity to present a number of awards, including the winners of this term’s PAC Cup, a friendly competition between our house groups that has a dedicated focus each term. This term the focus was on organisational skills, specifically bringing your planner to every lesson. Students receive ‘positive chronicles’ from their classroom teachers, with the tally going towards their assigned house. It was a tight contest this term with results below:

5th        1255 chronicles         Lachlan house
4th        1417 chronicles          Murray house
3rd        1646 chronicles          Kiewa house
2nd       2046  chronicles         Warrego house
1st        2057 chronicles          Loddon house

Term 3 was a busy one for school sports. Over the last three months, we have seen many young aspiring athletes representing GSSC with pride, while taking to the netball and badminton courts, soccer, football and touch rugby fields, and the athletics track. Congratulations to our sports students for your outstanding efforts. For a list of outstanding sporting achievements and awards presented see attached:  pdf Term 3 sports awards (39 KB)

Thank you to our environmental team who have also led the charge this term on a proactive rubbish clean-up initiative, helping to keep us all accountable for our environmental footprint and taking pride in our wonderful school grounds and facilities.

We would also like to acknowledge our Student Effort and Attitude Achievers award winners and congratulate them on their outstanding scores in their engagement and dedication to their learning this term.... pdf Term 3 Student Effort and Attitude Achievers awards (79 KB)

Finally, thank you to our Student Representative Council for their wonderful work this term and for updating our students and staff at yesterday’s assembly. This term the SRC has been discussing its role in assisting to stamp out bullying. The students have been working with our wellbeing staff and teachers to brainstorm ideas and initiatives. In addition to this the SRC has been involved in a number of incursions and excursions. In late July some of the members attended the Nelson Mandela Youth leadership summit at the Victorian Parliament where they heard from many inspirational leaders, as well as aspirational students striving to have their voices heard and to influence positive change in the world.

We wish all of our students, families and staff a happy and safe term break and we look forward to seeing you in Term 4 commencing Monday 3rd October.
