VRS is once again on the lookout for donations for this year's Easter Raffle.  Donationsof eggs, chocolates or Easter items can be left at the office.

School Council 📅

The VRS School Council Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held Monday night at 7pm in the Staff Room. We will also welcome our new school council members; Belinda Senini, Cheryl Jandesu and Emmanuel Maramba.

Brief Car Park Closures 🚘

To proactively ensure staff and student safety, the car park gates will close at 10:45 am on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursdays for a short period of time to allow for student transition.  Please avoid transitioning through the car park during this brief 3-4 minutes. 

Student Achievement 🏆 

One of our Senior Years' students, Kobe Wilson, participated in the School Sport Victoria - Goulburn Murray Division Swimming Championships at the Aquamoves Outdoor Pool here in Shepparton. 


Kobe participated in the carnival with students from across the Goulburn Valley and competed in three different swimming events. He demonstrated terrific swimming skills and took home all three first place ribbons. 


Well done Kobe on your efforts at the championships!

Outdoor Learning Space 🌞

Students have access to an additional SunSmart shaded play area in the Middle/Senior Years yard, thanks to a successful grant via the Department of Education's School Shade Sails Fund. 


This great new environment will also double as a learning space for outdoor activities. 

Preps 2023 📸

Make sure you grab next Wednesday's Shepparton News to see the annual Preps lift-out feature – including our new Foundation students for 2023!
