​What a fantastic Lowther Literary Festival last week! Students across the School were visited (virtually) by authors and illustrators who delivered talks, workshops and Q&A’s.

On Monday 23 August, Samantha Ratnam, leader of the Victorian Greens Party, came in for a lunchtime Q&A session with the girls in alignment with the Prefects’ Term 3 focus of Environmental Awareness. Samantha is an avid advocate for the environment and social justice and her passion for these topics was inspiring and thought provoking for many of the girls who attended the session.

​On Friday 13 Aug we held our Virtual Music Camp! 150 students signed up to select from a program of 13 online workshops and masterclasses. These were led by music staff as well as external music industry experts! (Volume up!)

​Celebrations for 100 days in Prep were held recently! Our girls participated in a special assembly which was live-streamed to families, at which each girl presented something she has enjoyed learning at school in the past 100 days.

BRONZE in Tokyo! Our girls and staff cheered for Ria and the Australian Women’s Quad team today, and witnessed them win Bronze in Tokyo! We are immensely proud of your achievements, Ria! Congratulations, to you and the team!

​Driven by their curiosity about the world around them, as well as the history of Lowther Hall and what makes a community, our Year 1 girls embarked on a project this year that began when they attended our Founder Day Assembly in February.
