Year 11 students will be completing a two-day Student Driver Program conducted by DECA in Shepparton. This is a terrific opportunity to gain valuable experience in learning to drive. The students will be accommodated overnight at Dookie College.
Students will need to be at Galen College by 6.50 am on the date of departure so that they can be organised to leave by 7.00 am. The Student Driver Program runs from 8.30 am until 5.00 pm each day. After completing the program, students will return to the College at approximately 6.20 pm. on the second day. Students will be provided with dinner and breakfast at Dookie College. They should bring food they require for snacks and lunch on the first day. They will require some money to purchase lunch on the second day of the camp. Students are required to bring pens or pencils for use in the classroom. The dates for the camps are listed. Please ensure all medical and permission forms are returned promptly.
At the recent Senior School Assembly, capably lead by Mr. Ellis’ homeroom, part of the theme was: ‘to have the courage to hold onto your convictions and be not afraid’. The Year 11 SRC members were also officially announced. Congratulations to Jonathon Panozzo, Andrew Mair, Zoe Levesque, Tess Rowland, Bridie Naughtin, Jacquelyn O’Keefe and Nick DelliCastelli.
    At this assembly the following information was also again advertised:
The main purpose of the Rotary Murray-Darling School of Freshwater Research (RMDSFR) is to enable Year 11 students who live in and around the Murray-Darling Basin to experience activities that are inherent in the fields of freshwater research, conservation and the environment. The students work in teams for five days from Thursday 12th April – Monday 16th April. One of the aims of the School is to introduce students to the process of scientific investigation and the role that research plays in living in a sustainable environment.  By combining problem solving activities with intensive support and advice from staff from the three institutions, MDFRC, La Trobe University and Charles Sturt University, the students gain a realistic and fun introduction to freshwater ecology, conservation and the environment. Please see Mr. Evans or Mr. Grogan if you are interested.
