Term 2 is certainly finishing with a great deal of energy! This week we enjoyed the Winter String festival – which provided a wonderful opportunity for string players of all ages across the school to perform, and at lunchtimes we have been serenaded by many Senior School and Junior School girls who learn the piano, in our series of Piano Festival Concerts.

I am delighted that this week we are able to officially launch publicity for the School’s Twilight Festival. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our Parents and Friends for all the work that has already been undertaken to plan this wonderful event.

This week has seen many more girls dusting off their winter uniforms and donning Lowther Hall scarves and beanies! At the moment we are in the transitional period where either Summer or Winter uniform may be worn and girls are encouraged to make a sensible choice about which to wear on any given day.

Welcome back to Term 2 which has started with the usual buzz of excitement. Yesterday began with our whole school assembly and some wonderful performances by our band girls and 2 of our outstanding pianists.

As everyone knows, last weekend the School community took part in the Moonee Valley Relay for Life. It was wonderful to see the efforts of students, families, staff, Old Grammarians, friends and supporters contributing to this fundraising event.
