Year 11 student, Sinéad has enlisted the help of Senior Chamber Strings students at Lowther Hall to produce a video in support of the fundraising initiative, ‘Violinists Support Ukraine’. Our girls have performed a traditional Ukrainian folk song called Verbovaya Doschechka...

It is not unusual to see a rainbow as you move around the Lowther Hall campus. The Noelene Horton Centre, where the girls in Raymond House and Senior School have their Science classes, was specifically designed so that at various points, the glass in the building would refract the light coming through and create rainbows on the walls and floors.

Our online Non Nobis Solum (not for ourselves alone) Giving Day is happening on Wednesday 25 May. The purpose of the day is to raise funds for our Centenary Scholarships, which are envisaged to provide an education at Lowther Hall from Year 7 to Year 12 for 2 students from indigenous or refugee backgrounds.

Next Wednesday is an exciting day on our School calendar: it will be a very first Non Nobis Solum (not for ourselves alone) Giving Day! For one day only we are asking our entire school community of past and current parents, students, staff and friends to help us raise funds for two new Centenary Scholarships.

This week I had the delight of visiting the Year 4 girls at their camp in Portsea. I watched them embrace various aspects of camp life, compete beach challenges, take to the flying fox, the high ropes and the giant swing, supported by their encouraging Year 8 mentors and teachers.

Today was 'Coloured Hair for Ukraine' Day, a fundraising initiative of our Senior School Social Justice Committee to raise money for the United Nations Human Rights Council, in support of Ukraine.
