Students of the Term

Congratulations to Madison Kleiner NN and Alexandra Cairney OY who were the Year 7 Students of the Term and Gemma Rizk who won the Year 8 award. All three girls have shown commitment to their studies and helping others to learn in the classroom environment. Well done.

Arts Faculty

Our Arts Faculty has been busy producing a number of performances recently, showcasing our students’ talents.

The audience at our recent Music Soiree night was in for a treat as our students entertained them with their musical prowess. Well done to all the Year 7 and 8 students who performed.

The College Production “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat” is in its final stages of rehearsal. Tickets are now on sale and we look forward to many Savio parents supporting the Year 7 and 8 students involved.

Premier League success

We were delighted that two of our Year 7 Premier League teams made the finals this year. Well done to the Netball and Girls Basketball teams who reached the finals. The Basketball team were sadly beaten but the girls won convincingly 30-8 against Mackillop. Well done to the team, captained by Malainey Clark:

Charlee Dean, Sophie Daniels, Alice Mitrevics, Emily George, Jaala Van De Duim, Bridget Allen, Alison Cumming, Kaylee Coulsell and Madison Kleiner.

Boost Enrichment

The Boost Enrichment Program for Semester One came to a fantastic end with a showcase night in the Mansion. The Year 7 and 8 students had a stall each to entertain the guests with their knowledge and expertise in their chosen area of study. Topics ranged from self-identity to music and how it affects mood. Everyone who attended was very impressed with the students’ confidence and energy in their presentations. Well done to Mrs Fitzgerald who led the students through the program. Invitations for the Semester 2 program will be going out in due course.

To round off their lessons the students then had a visit from children’s author Ellie Marney. Ellie introduced the students to the fascinating world of crime writing and took them through how to write a crime novel. The students were totally absorbed in coming up with the perfect motive, perpetrator and victim! We hope this will encourage our many avid writers to keep up with their writing.

Happy holidays

As we come to the end of the term, with Semester One behind us it is amazing to reflect on the busyness that is College life. I am constantly amazed by our students who fill their days with study, sport, music, dance, drama and the array of clubs we offer at the school. Well done to those who have thrown themselves into the life of the College with such enthusiasm.

I wish all families a happy holiday break. It is important that students take time to recharge and get over any winter bugs so they can return ready to take on new challenges next term.
