Welcome back to Term 4, we trust that all families and friends enjoyed some quality time together over the last two weeks, including the October long weekend. The last term of the year promises to be a busy one – with more school camps, excursions / incursions, Sports Expo, Gala Day, Reception Transition for 2018, Craigburn’s Got Talent, Celebration Night, Year 7 Graduation and more. We will endeavour to keep you posted of news and events via our news blog and Facebook Page.
End of Term 3
- Congratulations and well done to all students, staff and families who supported the Do It In A Dress charity fundraiser. With a little bit of extra media attention we managed to raise in excess of $300000, which translates to supporting over 1000 girls in Africa to be receive a school education. This is a remarkable achievement and one in which our school community should be very proud. A terrific reward for such positive action. A special mention to our student leaders who did a fabulous job in organising and promoting the charity fundraiser.
- A big thank you also to Morgan Koegel, the CEO of One Girl – who spoke to our school community at our end of term assembly.

- “This is a film about 12 year old girls, made by 12 year old girls, for 12 year old girls, or anyone that has been a 12 year old girl, or will be a 12 year old girl, or wishes they were a 12 year old girl.” Created by Tilda Cobham-Hervey with twelve 12-year-old-girls, this film is a cross between a documentary and a theatre piece, where real girls articulate what they hope for, what they remember and what it feels like to be”
