PRIDE Values Recognition
We are now halfway through term 1 of 2022, and as a learning community we are proud of the way our students have commenced the year. They have demonstrated our school values by Persevering with their learning, Respecting each other and their teachers, showing Integrity in their honest approach to new ways of learning, celebrating Diversity in our school community and showing Excellence in their completion of learning tasks to the best of their ability.
We have much to celebrate at Strathmore. As a school we want to recognise and congratulate individual students who are embracing our values on a regular basis. Some of you may have already received some communications that your child is to be congratulated on demonstrating one or more of our school values.
Recognising when our students are achieving and being their best is an important part of our school community, and we like to share these with you.
If you receive an email to inform you of your child’s achievements, please join with us in celebrating this positive news.

Year 7 Burnet & Napier Orientation Camp
The 2022 Burnet & Napier expedition to Camp Wilkin at Anglesea set off this year on the 22nd of February with three buses full of eager (and a few nervous) campers.
The Year 7 students were divided into five marine-themed activity groups and took part in canoeing, high ropes, rock climbing, surfing and mountain biking, accompanied by our Year 10 leaders and a selection of the college’s most fearless, adrenaline-craving teachers.
The activities were ‘challenge by choice’ and it was inspiring to witness many students stepping outside of their comfort zone and conquering some personal fears by trying their hand at new experiences. Many got to hang ten or ‘ride the magic carpet’ for the first time with the Go Ride A Wave surf school, navigate the Anglesea River by boat and bike or conquer their fear of heights.
The Burnet & Napier teams would like to thank and congratulate all Year 7 students who attended for the manner in which they conducted themselves during our stay in Anglesea, the Year 10 leaders who did a fantastic job assisting students and staff, and the staff below who assisted in making the Orientation Camp a success and a joy.
Mr Daniher, Ms Kersten, Ms Rigden, Ms Standring, Mr Bates, Mr Parham and Ms Trinh.
