2nd in Australia! Congratulations to our Lowther Hip Hop Team for placing second at the National Finals of the AASCF on the Gold Coast, over the weekend. Well done, girls!

The countdown is on! There are only days until our biennial Parents and Friends' Association Twilight Festival! Join us for fun, food and fireworks on Friday 23 November, 5pm - 9pm!

​The way in which students and teachers interact with books has changed significantly over the last 25 years. It was this fact that prompted us to undertake a review of the Lowther Hall Learning Resource Centre (LRC) during 2018.

2018 marks 100 years since the signing of the Armistice that signalled the end of World War I. To commemorate this milestone Year 12 Humanities Captains, Georgia and Iliana, commissioned a 'Wall of Reflection' at Lowther Hall, a permanent installation of almost 500 poppies.

I know that everyone who attended the Junior School Music Concert last night will agree that we were treated to a wonderfully entertaining evening! For me the highlight was seeing the girls enjoying their music making and watching them work together in their various ensembles. The teamwork they displayed is a skill that is not only essential in musical ensembles, but also in many other spheres of life. Well done to all the performers and thank you to each staff member who has supported the girls throughout the year. As we head towards the end of the year excitement is building for the Twilight Festival. I do hope that many parents will take the opportunity to volunteer to assist with this event. Thank you to those families who have already sold raffle tickets for the Festival Raffle. It is wonderful to see the whole School community coming together for this very special event!

​I am always impressed with the enthusiasm and energy of our girls. In recent days I have seen them throwing themselves into Peter Pan rehearsals, signing up for Antigone auditions, stepping up to speak in Assembly, studying for examinations, embracing the challenges of camps and engaging with their learning.

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.
