Did you know? We have a new sister school in South Africa! In early March, six students from Years 11 and 12 joined our Principal, Ms Elisabeth Rhodes, Deputy Principal and Head of Senior School, Ms Tracy Healy and Year 10 Coordinator, Ms Liza Hiles on a trip to St Mary's Anglican Girls' School in Johannesburg, to consolidate our new connection. We look forward to welcoming students from St Mary's to Lowther Hall in the future!

In Modern Theatre Styles this week students our Year 9 students were set the task of recreating a famous piece of artwork from which to develop a scripted performance. Upon selecting the work, the girls were tasked with outlining the key features and intended effect on the viewer. Students then identified and set about locating items and objects in their homes they could use to reconstruct the image. They certainly demonstrated their resourcefulness, creativity and imagination in meeting the challenge in their home setting.

Our Year 12 girls got a nice surprise when they came to the School on Saturday to collect some class materials and their Term 1 report - their long awaited Year 12 "hoodie", delivered drive-thru style by Ms Healy, Deputy Principal and Head of Senior School, and Ms O'Brien, Year 12 Coordinator. It was a great chance for a quick catch up through the car window!

Our Year 5 cohort experienced an interactive and engaging musical event today - via livestream! Renowned performance ensemble 'Taikoz' delivered a remote incursion to students, that included a thrilling performance of Taiko (Japanese drumming).

​Congratulations to our Deputy Principal and Head of Senior School, Ms Tracy Healy on her selection for The Educator Hot List Australia, 2019! Tracy has been recognised as an industry leader in education...

We are happy to announce that our Kinder to Year 12 House Fundraising afternoon raised over $10,000 for selected charities: 'Rainforest Rescue', 'Bee the Cure' and 'Epilepsy Action Australia'! The event was led by our Prefect Body, and girls took part in fun activities and food sales. Well done, all!

​Some excellent dance results at the recent AASCF Winterfest Competition for Lowther girls! Our Senior Hip Hop Team won the entire hip hop division, the Junior Hip Hop Team placed 1st in their division, and our lyrical dance teams performed extremely well with the Junior Team placing second in their division. Well done, girls!

We thank our Old Grammarian visitors today, who took part in the Year 11 Leadership Conference! They educated girls about their careers spanning health and medicine, law, finance, performing arts, design, and engineering.

​Be inspired by our Class of 2018 student, Maryam! She received a prestigous Premier's VCE Award yesterday for her perfect study score in Psychology. The video below was screened at the ceremony, and showcases Maryam's VCE journey with her Lowther Hall psychology teacher, Miss Sarah Woodhouse. Congratulations, Maryam!
