Happy Friday Burnet. Well we overslept and missed the deadline of the last bulletin so forgive us if there’s some ‘old news’ here.
Last week we celebrated ‘Wear it Purple’ Day in Burnet, as the purple team it was great to see our cohort get involved in this wonderful initiative to support our students.
We want to thank all of our Burnet students for ensuring their preferences for 2023 were considered and entered in a timely manner. For the Year 9s & 10s it was a valuable and rewarding experience for us to be able to have those one-on-one conversations, discuss the great work and results our students have received and have meaningful conversations about goals, pathways and plans for the future.
Burnet is slowly but surely climbing the ladder in athletics day results as the years progress. We finished a modest but admirable 4th place in this year’s event. We had many individual honours to celebrate:
Yianni V - Year 7 Boys Discus
Levi J - Year 7 Boys Long Jump

Welcome back to all our students who attended the Music Camp. We hope your experience at the Rutherford Retreat was a positive one and are looking forward to you rejoining us in class.
At our team assembly this week, the Burnet team focused on RESPECT as one of our college PRIDE values. We asked students to reflect on what they believe respect looks like in class and in the community. Our Peer Support work will focus on respectful relationships in our upcoming sessions.
Only two weeks left! Reminder that Monday and Wednesday are student free to make way for our Parent/Student/Teacher conferences.
Have a great weekend.

Year 10 Food Technology
This week in Year 10 Food Technology students have been focusing on “Food Aesthetics”. Their task this week was to create an aesthetically pleasing plate using only a sausage, a slice of bread, sauce and garnish. Students applied their theory knowledge and created plates worthy to be placed in a Michelin star restaurant. Well done year 10’s!
Biomimicry Excursion to the Botanical Gardens
A group of 15 Strathmore Students were selected to attend the Designed by Nature (Biomimicry) excursion to the Botanical Gardens.
In the morning the students observe the tried and tested biological strategies and patterns of nature with a biomimicry educator. We learnt lots of interesting facts and about how nature has inspired many unique designs and solved problems.
Students in the afternoon completed a design sprint which took them to the cacti garden and in groups they designed their own nature-inspired innovations based on the barrel cactus.
It was an excellent excursion which was very inspiring and a beautiful place to be learning about how nature can be used for design inspiration and problem-solving.

Students from the music faculty returned to Rutherford Park in Daylesford last week to gather, rehearse and celebrate at Music Camp. Music Camp provides the attendees with focused attention and tuition, the chance to play in various ensemble configurations and to build social connections across year levels. This was the first time being able to run the event since before COVID, and it was fantastic to be surrounded by enthusiastic and motivated students engaging in musical pursuits.
My sincere thanks to all staff who gave up their time to attend the camp, running rehearsals and inspiring the students. A massive thanks and congratulations to our yr11 students, who stepped up into leadership roles on camp, running activities and working as ensemble leaders and conductors.
Shodo - Japanese Calligraphy
Students in Japanese classes were visited by Takuto Watanabe from Doshisha University in Kyoto, Japan this Week.
Takuto was able to share ‘Shodo’ (Japanese Calligraphy) with our students. After his demonstration, students were able to try writing kanji that they have learned in this style using traditional tools of a brush, pen and ink.
