40 Hour Famine 2015 – We reached our goal!


The 40 Hour Famine took place on the weekend (14th-16th August). Our goal as a school was to raise $7000 and I am pleased to say our page ( currently has $7386.75 ‘given’ and we are still receiving donations.

Student Representative Council members from all four South Weston Network High Schools (Alfred Deakin, Melrose, Telopea and Mount Stromlo) joined forces to run the 40 Hour Famine in each school and our network goal was to raise $25000. Over the next couple of weeks we will share our success with the other network high schools and find out how they went.

Thankyou to all staff and students who participated and to those who sponsored us.

World Vision Global Leadership Convention

Andrew Macmillan, Max Jasinski and Ruby Whalan attending the World Vision Global Leadership Convention on Tuesday 28th May (Week 5, Term 2) to learn about the issues in Malawi and also about poverty and hunger around the world. The students participated in several activities, which increased their understanding of the work that World Vision does and how our school can work together to stop children around the world from going hungry. Andrew, Max and Ruby were equipped with all the skills need to lead the 40 Hour Famine here at Stromlo High School next term. Great work!
