YEAR 12 ACTIVITIES DAY
Our Year 12 students were able to celebrate the end of 13 years of schooling with an activities day planned by the cohort.
The day included bacon and eggs for breakfast, dressing up with a parade at recess, a cake eating competition, and an obstacle course/water fight. The weather was perfect and the students enjoyed themselves. We wish them all the best in their upcoming exams and future endeavours.
Congratulations to Ayla Grbic of Year 7 who has been nominated for the David Drane Encouragement Award at the Gippsland Sports Academy Awards.
Ayla was acknowledged for her fighting spirit and willingness to give anything a go even though she is the youngest athlete they have.
Well done Ayla, we wish good luck!
YEAR 8 FOOD STUDIES- COOKING AT HOME
During the remote learning period, students had to submit three photos of their production showing the processes used and the end product.
Here are a few pictures of the students' creations.
Since on-site learning has resumed , some of our year 9 and 10 students have been very active! The year 10 Outdoor and Environmental Education students have begun their canoe program. The group has already visited Lake Narracan twice to learn the basic skills and are off to Blue Rock on Friday, November 6. Their camp to Lake Tyers will take place the following week. Let’s hope for some sunny weather!
As our year 9 Outdoor and Environmental Recreation students missed out on their term 3 experiences, we have been playing catch-up before the year ends. Term 4 involves completing the Bike Education program and students are progressing well with their riding skills and knowledge of road rules. They also attended a session at The Summit in Trafalgar East focusing on climbing, facing challenges, and teamwork.

Do you hate reading?
Well, our What’s Hot section is for you. We have a collection of books that are aimed at reluctant readers, great easy to read stories! Some of the books are designed for people with Dyslexia, so grab one and see if they are as good as they claim to be!
HAPPY READING AND KEEP BORROWING,
FROM THE LIBRARY STAFF
WHAT'LL HAPPEN TO THE WATTLE?
Lowanna College recently entered a competition to win wattle seeds that are being sent to the NASA space station. This required a 200 word written application as well as a 2-minute video showing whole school involvement.
This got the students thinking and they have come up with some great questions about the difference the seeds, being in out of space, will make as opposed to generic seeds that haven't been.
Fingers crossed we are winners and can answer the students' questions! Stay tuned!
