From the Principal's Desk
The first term is now well underway, with our Year 7 students recently returning form the Year 7 Orientation Camp at Phillip Island. At this camp, they were able to undertake a wide variety of engaging, challenging and just plain fun activities together, allowing them to get to know each other and their respective teachers. Students surfed, swam, did beach activities, climbed, trampolined, did archery, flying fox and ten-pin bowling, just to name a selection of the activities available. A great time was had by all, and many thanks to those staff who gave their personal time over the three days to allow this to happen. Well done!
We also had our House Swimming Sports on Monday March 3rd. Again we were very lucky with the weather, with a fine and warm (but not too hot) day for all events. The students competed in a range of events, including age group freestyle, backstroke, breastroke and relays, as well as novelty events. Another great day for the college.

It is with sadness we report the passing of the founding principal of the college Mr Harold Lacey at the age of 91. He was the driving force behind the creation of the school in its temporary location at Croydon West and later at the Cambridge Road site.
Teachers in the first year of the college. Harold Lacey is front-row center.
