Australian Olympic Committee Honours Strathmore Student
At the senior school assembly this week, Year 12 student Jed Snowden received an Olympic flag on behalf of the school. In 2018 Jed represented Australia at the Summer Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He was among 4000 athletes aged 15-18 coming from 206 countries.
Jed played in the Men's Hockey team which performed strongly and finished in 6th place overall.
The Olympic flag was presented to Jed by Carrie Smith, a member of the Australian Olympic team who competed in sailing at the Rio Olympics in 2016.
Strathmore wishes Jed well in the future as he sets his goals, to hopefully make the senior men’s team and compete at future Olympics.
The gym lost property basket is currently overflowing with shoes and clothing that have been left behind after PE and sport this term.
Please come to the gym before school or during recess or lunchtime before the end of term to look for any items you may have lost. All items will be gone if not claimed by the end of term.
Year 8 Boys Soccer
The Year 8 boys Soccer Team played on the 19th June at Fairbairn Park.
The boys played against Sirius College first and won 7-2 in an entertaining game. We then played Essendon Keilor College winning 3-0 with the boys playing some good possession football.
That win meant that we topped the group and into the final against Buckley Park. After a slow start with Strathmore struggling to break down their 6 at the back, eventually the goal came and then the boys relaxed to play some excellent football winning the game 4-0.
Well done boys!
Western Metropolitan Region Cross Country Championships
29 students made the start line of the WMR 3km cross country championships at Brimbank Park on Thursday. Many had spent term 2 preparing by attending training twice a week. The highlights include 5 of our athletes finishing in the top 12 and qualifying for the State championships to be held next term.
Congratulations to the following state qualifiers:
Curtis Rawlings 11th, Kayley Kavanagh 12th, Ty Davis 5th, Taylor Moxon 7th and Luna Nakada 5th.
Our 14 Boys performed well, finishing in second place in the teams category. Congratulations to Ty Davis, Taylor Moxon, Heinrich Talento, Kade Mueller, Nick Ciavarella and James Zammit.
Our other team members performed extremely well on the day, many running at the regional level for the first time.
Ruby Barnetson, Alec Becvinovski, Lav Bujak, Georgia Duggan, Lucy Gardener, Molly Gasper, Jack Kamp, Teagan Kamp, Faith Kassis, Massimo Kelly-Viccaro, Maeve Keogh, Miyu Kuriki, Kaito Nakada, Cameron Naug, Hayley O’Regan, Jazz Ryan, Kira Thomas, Zoe Warren, Arelia Wilson and Alexandra Ziogas.
It is of concern the number of students riding bicycles and scooters to school and not wearing a helmet.
All bike and scooter riders are required to wear a bike helmet in Victoria.
Mandatory bicycle helmet laws were introduced in July 1990. This applies when riding:
Police can stop bike and scooter riders and issue a fine or a warning for not wearing an approved bicycle helmet.
More information see the VicRoads website.
Year 10 Formal 2019
The 2019 Year 10 Formal, hosted by the Student Leadership Council, has been booked for Tuesday 15th of October at Alumbra, Docklands.
The event will run from 6pm to 10pm. Cost is $80 per student, which includes venue, food, drinks and entertainment (including a photo booth and donut wall!).
The event is now active on Compass, with all year 10 students listed as attendees. Payment is to be made by end of September.
Please note, students are being invited to attend the Year 10 formal. Students should, as always, promote the school values of PRIDE (Perseverance, Respect, Integrity, Diversity and Excellence) in order to secure an invitation. Students who have not met these expectations as part of the Strathmore community may not receive an invitation to attend the formal. Invitations are issued the day before the event. Payment does not guarantee an invitation.
We look forward to hosting a fun-filled evening that will surely be memorable for all attending students!
