Lord Mayor’s Competition
Melbourne's 2017 Junior Lord Mayor Competition is open to students in Years 5 to Year 7 (10–12 years of age). The competition aims to educate Victorians about Melbourne and its history. 

The Junior Lord Mayor gets to raise the flag on Melbourne Day (30 August), joins city Councillors and Lord Mayor Robert Doyle on official and other fun duties during the year and wins a class excursion to go sailing on the Enterprize.

To enter, visit the Melbourne Day website. There are also school resources, as well as comments from and a radio interview with the 2016 Junior Lord Mayor, Mason Dwyer, from St Louis de Montfort School in Aspendale. The competition closes at 5pm on Monday 14 August 2017.

Electives
A reminder that the due date for electives choices for Savio students are due this week. For more information and dates please click here. If you wish to view our Subject Selection Handbooks they can be found online under Learning and Teaching. 

Students have received an email with instructions and a hard copy flow chart to assist with their choices. Students who wish to apply for a place in the Outdoor Education – Duke of Edinburgh’s Scheme also need to complete a permission form available at the Student Hub or Savio Office.

Pastoral activities
Last Friday the Year 8’s watched a presentation by Brainstorm Productions called “The Hurting Game”. This focussed on the themes of peer pressure, exclusion, harassment, rumours and body image. The show and debrief at the end of the presentation left students with an understanding of how destructive behaviour can have life-long consequences.

I do hope students have a restful four day break – at this time of many illnesses creep up on us. Lots of sleep and wholesome foods will allow students to tackle the remaining six weeks of the Term.
