Australian Volleyball Schools Cup 2015

This year Mount Stromlo High School entered two teams into the Australian Volleyball Schools cup held in Melbourne.

The competition is held over a week and more than 200 schools from all across Australia and New Zealand take part (it’s a big deal!). The two senior teams demonstrated exceptional skill and sportsmanship over the week and embodied the school’s core values the entire time.

Both teams had great wins (and some losses, but we won’t talk about that), with the girls finishing in 7th position and the boys in 8th.

All students should be congratulated for their efforts, and for representing the school with pride.  A big thankyou to Maddie Clayden, who volunteered her time to coach the boys team for the week.

Here are some happy snaps of the action!

Scheduled maintenance of Tech Block these holidays

Information for parents, carers and students

The Education and Training Directorate will undertake maintenance activity at the school. This maintenance will involve the replacement all of the building eaves in the Technical block. The eave sheeting contains small amounts of asbestos. The material has been assessed as non-friable and will be removed in accordance with relevant guidelines. To minimize any potential risk the removal of this non-friable material will be undertaken during the Christmas and January holidays. The work will commence with site preparation and on Saturday 19th December and removal to be completed by 27th January 2016. The Directorate is working closely with us, to ensure that the removal process is completed with minimal disruption to the school the removal is to be completed in the Stand own period.

The safety and welfare of our students and staff is our paramount concern and we will continue to monitor the situation and advise of any developments.
