An environment without music is a place without soul!

Congratulations to our Year 8 Peer Leaders for creating such a vibrant atmosphere this week with our first student-led lunchtime activity.

The DJ Dray Dance Off proved that our students young and old enjoy the chance to move and groove!  The Middle School Plaza was pumping with tunes and an array of dance moves throughout lunchtime.  The support from the Senior Student Executive provided a wonderful example of the College spirit and of leadership in action.

Looking forward to many more student-led activities through the term to create some more soul!

International Awareness

As a proud Round Square Member School, we actively promote the learning of and for the IDEALS.  Throughout the start of this year, the Middle School Peer Leaders have selected Internationalism (International Awareness) as the focus IDEAL.  This week, we commenced this action as we welcomed, Jakob Withoft to our Middle School Assembly.  Jakob is a current Year 10 exchange student from Schule Schloss Salem School in Germany.  Jakob shared his adventure to Australia and provided an insight to the learning life of his school compared to Scotch Oakburn.  Jakob truly provided an International insight to learning and the benefits of the Round Square network!

Swimming Season

The 2023 Swimming Season is alive!  This week provided an opportunity for our whole Penquite Campus to participate in a full House Swimming Carnival for the first time in three years.

The support from students for personal best and participation was the real winner!
