Virtual Reality Experience

Students in the Year 9/10 DigiTech class have been learning about drones and virtual reality over the past couple of weeks.

School Farm Campus Open

Last Friday saw the culmination of many months of hard work with the official opening of the school farm. Congratulations to everyone who has worked so hard to develop this fantastic resource for our current and future students. This amazing facility has come about through the hard work and support of a large group of people. As a school we could not be more thankful to these people and their organisations. It is important to make mention of some of those who helped us along the way: The VCAL team and our VCAL students in developing the farm, showing us what could be achieved, and identifying the necessity of providing a building on site. The support of Dave Sanders and our school council.
