I know that those of you who attended the Annual Music Concert on Wednesday evening will agree that we were treated to a wonderful night of music with outstanding performances from our bands, orchestras, choirs, ensembles and soloists. It brings me an enormous amount of joy to see so many girls delighting in their music making and to reflect on the skills they have developed in working towards their performances. Thank you to Mr Darren Emerson and the team of music teachers and other staff who facilitated the event and particularly to the conductors of each item for their leadership of the girls.

This morning the Year 9 girls set off for their Duke of Edinburgh Adventurous Journey and the Year 12 students headed away for their two day Retreat. Our Study Tours are ready for departure to France and Japan, finishing off what has been another busy but highly successful term. I wish all families a restful and enjoyable break and look forward to seeing everyone back in Term 4.

Walk To School

As part of the Moonee Valley Walk to School initiative which is running through October, Lowther Hall will be holding our own special Walk to School event on Tuesday 17 October. On this day, girls will be encouraged to make their way to school on foot. For those not able to walk the whole way to school, there will be a designated drop off point in Rose Street, at the departure point of the Lowther Hall Walking School Bus, from which staff will escort groups of students along the route to school. We hope that this will promote the concept of walking to school more regularly and will highlight the health benefits and environmental advantages of traveling without a car. The Social Justice leaders and Health and PE Captains will be leading this event. More information will be available in the first week of term. We do hope that you will encourage your daughter to be involved.
