​Despite the cold weather, there has been plenty to celebrate this week at School – from the wonderful performances of the VCE Music students at their recital last night, to the impressive spelling efforts of the Junior School girls last week at the House Spelling Bee!

The first Lowther Hall Junior School Science Fair was held on Friday 22 May! The Fair was opened by a former Lowther Hall student, Ms Antonia Policheni, who is a PhD candidate and cancer researcher.

I am sure that everyone who attended the Evening of Song on Monday night will agree that it was a great success! The girls and staff are to be commended for the outstanding level of performance and the professional presentation of the event.

A significant event on the Music Calendar, Evening of Song will be held at The Clocktower Centre on May 18.

​I’m sure that many of you have been interested to follow the recent (and continuing) media discussion regarding private and public schooling. I have been shocked by some of the broad (and often uninformed) generalisations that have been made about private school students and indeed about private schools.

I’m sure that those of you who were in the audience for our Senior School production of The School for Scandal last Friday and Saturday will agree that it was wonderful show—a visual spectacle with a wide array of costumes, colourful lighting and an exciting dance scene.

It has been wonderful hosting students from our sister school, La Malgrange College in France. Please read some of their reflections about their visit to us and Australia.
