Deakin University COLLAB17
We were pleased to have a group of students from the Deakin University Faculty of Arts and Education work in collaboration with the College as part of the University’s Collaboration in Design (COLLAB) Project. The COLLAB17 project included reformatting of student artworks into merchandise gift wrapping paper and greeting cards.
This term, the students in the Sports Academy were fortunate to have Athletics Australia coach, Bridgid Junot, attend Worawa every Thursday to deliver the Level 1 ‘Kids’ Athletics Coaching Course. The program was tailored for the students to enable them to learn the basic concepts and principles of coaching whilst integrating basic literacy and numeracy concepts into each lesson.

Weekend Recreation Activities
On weekends the girls enjoy a range of recreation activities. Sunday, 20th August took them on an exciting trip to enjoy the snow at Lake Mountain Resort in Marysville. For many, it was their first experience of snow and of being up in the mountains. The excitement and anticipation built up as we approached the resort, and the girls caught their first glimpse of snow on the trees and on the side of the road.
