​The Lowther Hall Values Statement affirms our commitment to “an orientation towards our future which embraces our Anglican context, our traditions and our past”. One of the rituals that provides us with an opportunity to live out this value is the annual Founder Day assembly, at which we celebrate the School’s “birthday”.

​Congratulations to Claudia Krake (Class of 2022) who has recently won the Snow Australia ‘Spirit of Interschools’ award for her work in developing snowsports programs and initiatives at Lowther Hall for our students last year.

​There is nothing like the sound of the girls’ voices to bring Lowther Hall to life! During January the operations team, maintenance staff and various contractors worked to prepare the buildings and grounds for the start of the year. There have also been several weeks of meetings, professional learning sessions, curriculum writing and classroom set up by the teachers, alongside the completion of the various start of year tasks by the administration and support staff. Despite all of this busy and important work, until the girls arrive, the school doesn’t quite feel quite right.

Our girls are back! What a wonderful start to Term 1 today, with lots of happy smiles and excited reunions between friends as well as our whole school assembly at which every new student and staff member to our community received their Lowther Hall bear. We look forward to an exciting and energetic year ahead.

VCE results rankings were released today and reflect the outstanding work of our girls and staff. Lowther Hall is ranked in the top 20 schools in Victoria, and #1 in Metropolitan Melbourne’s North and West. Congratulations to the Class of 2022, and their teachers!

​I am certain that all who attended St Paul’s Cathedral for our annual Carols Service last night will agree that it was indeed a “night divine”! The girls, as always, made me incredibly proud as they lifted their voices together in song with great enthusiasm.

​As we head into the State election this weekend, I have been reflecting that I often take for granted the fact that we live in a society in which each voice is valued and can be heard.
