Lowanna Blood Donor Heroes
Lowanna had a team of 5 donors who attended Traralgon Blood Bank on Monday 10th August.
Together with Bianca Treverton and Judith Stewart and another two members of staff, on this occasion we had a first-time donor; VCE student Cordelia Reynolds who also attended. It was great to have her join us, and inspiring to see that our students are developing responsibility and consideration for the greater community. The next Lowanna team donation date is Monday, November 9th, between 4:30pm and 6pm. Please let Mrs Stewart know if you are over 18 and you are interested.
Every blood donation saves 3 lives!
Year 9 Outdoor Education
Prior to moving back into online learning, our Year 9 Outdoor Recreation students were lucky enough to attend a session at Jump and Climb, Traralgon. The students have been learning about activities that were historically participated in outdoors, but now are offered indoors too. Our Year 9s set a goal to work towards during their experience, then spent the following lessons reflecting. Here are some photos on their session!
We understand that times can be tough, particularly at the moment. Headspace have released the flyer below and we feel it could be useful to our community.
Please reach out if needed.
There is a list of places you can contact below or you can also contact our Wellbeing Team who are available for support.
Please call the General Office on 5127 9200 and they will have someone from Wellbeing contact you.
Notes from the School Nurse- Kaz
Victoria’s Respectful Relationships initiative supports school leaders, educators and our school communities to promote and model respect and equality – and to teach our children how to build healthy relationships, resilience and confidence.
The Royal Commission into Family Violence identified the critical role that schools have in creating a culture of respect to change the story of family violence for future generations. From 2016, Respectful Relationships education became a core component of the Victorian Curriculum from Prep to Year 12.
In addition to the work we do teaching students about building positive and respectful relationships, our role is to also create a safe space for students, staff and the community. A way we do this is to provide information about help and advice. Below are contacts for sources of support who can also assist with the process of safety planning –

Notes from the School Chaplain- Glenda
The above is a great resource for parents – it is primarily directed to primary I believe, but the ideas would work across the board. I believe some of the printables in the document could be useful to your family.
