​After competing against hundreds of students across the state, Year 10 student Antigony has been awarded with 2nd place at the La Trobe Young Writers’ Awards! The annual award requires Year 10 students to enter an original creative writing piece on a theme, and Antigony won for her entry entitled: Comatose. Well done, Antigony!

Year 12 student Rebecca Rusinovic has been named Moonee Valley's Young Sporting Spirit Individual for 2017 at the Leader Sports Awards! Rebecca won for demonstrating the greatest in achievement, dedication, fairness and sportsmanship out of hundreds of nominees, and received her award at a ceremony held last night at Etihad Stadium. Well done, Rebecca!

This week we bid our final farewell to the Class of 2017. We have recognised them at formal assemblies, watched them throw their hats off the Mansion balcony and been moved at their Valedictory service yesterday afternoon as they left the Cultural Centre symbolically carrying their light out into the world, ready to shine.

​Today we celebrated ‘Walk to School’ Day! In support of Moonee Valley’s October ‘Walk to School’ initiative, Lowther students from Kinder to Year 12 formed walking groups accompanied by staff.

​On Friday our Year 9 students held their successful ‘Fun Run’! The event was organised by the girls to raise funds for Hong, a young woman in Vietnam who Lowther Hall (in partnership with the Lifestart Foundation) has supported for the past 5 years...

​It was wonderful to see all of our girls back at school this week ready for another action packed term. At our whole school assembly on Tuesday we enjoyed one of our most significant school rituals, where each Prep student presented each of our Year 12 girls with a gold rose, and they, in turn, gave her a gift of seeds.

It was a great start to Term 4 today, with our annual ‘Prep and Year 12 Gift Exchange’, at which Year 12 girls receive a yellow rose from Prep girls, and the Preps in turn receive seedlings - to symbolise growth, responsibility and tradition during their time as students at Lowther. Welcome back to all of our girls. We look forward to an excellent term ahead!

​Be guided on a tour of our School by Lowther Hall students! Our ‘School Tours’ Day will be held Saturday 14 October. Kindergarten to Year 12 tours will commence at 9.30am, and Year 7 to Year 12 tours will commence at 11.00am.

You are invited to the annual Lowther Hall Art and Design Exhibition from Friday 13 October to Monday 16 October. Students from Kindergarten to Year 12 will showcase their artistic and creative talents at the 4 day exhibition, to be held in the Joan M. Garde Cultural Centre at the School.
