2016 is off to a flying start at Lowther Hall! Welcome back to all of our returning families and a special welcome to all of the families who are new this year. The girls have embraced the new year with confidence and enthusiasm and it has been lovely to see their excitement.

A new school year has begun and we welcome back today our students from Years 1 to 12. We look forward to a happy and successful 2016 school year with you!

​The 2015 VCE results for Lowther Hall are outstanding and a cause for much celebration with 51% of graded assessments being an A or an A+! The class of 2015 embraced every aspect of School life with energy and vigour and we are proud of each student and all she has achieved during her journey.

This term the Junior School girls have been focussing on the Quality of a Lowther Hall Girl, “She understands the world and her capacity to shape it”. As part of this focus the girls were asked as a year level to choose a person who in their eyes was “shaping their world”. After careful consideration, the Year 4 girls decided that Ellen DeGeneres would be good choice as she spends a lot of her time and attention raising awareness and donating money to charity organisations and people in need.

​I am certain that all girls and families who were at St Paul’s Cathedral for our annual Carols Service will agree that we are truly blessed to have a school capable of producing such beautiful singing and creating such a special occasion. The girls, as always, made me incredibly proud as they lifted their voices together in song with great enthusiasm. An enormous thank you to everyone who contributed to the service, particularly our Director of Choral and Voice, Ms Joanne Carroll, whose repertoire choices and training of the choirs are always thoroughly well advised!

​Our Service of Lessons and Carols at St Paul’s Cathedral, Thursday 3 December, 7.00pm, is for all students in Years 4 to 11, their families and other members of the Lowther Hall community. An inspiring service of reflection on and celebration of the true meaning of Christmas.

We know that feeling connected to a community is highly beneficial, and acts as a significant protective factor for our girls. To this end, during Terms 2 and 3, the Years 7 and 8 students at Lowther Hall have worked together to develop better their understanding of their capacity to ‘shape their world’ as they navigate developing their own community within their section of the School.
