Herald Sun Shield Football Competition
The team was made up of the best female footballing talent from years 7 - 10 and the team was to take on Sacred Heart College Geelong in the Semi Final. It began as a tough battle with the two sides both trying to gain the ascendency in the match with Full Back Emily Holmes injured early Strathmore began on the back foot, but with a stellar first quarter from Sahara Ball in the ruck, supported well by Jasmina Curtis, Ayda Osman and Matilda Fitzpatrick, on our side managed to find a way to keep the game at a 10 point deficit at quarter time. The girls continued to battle hard in the second quarter and with Daniela Curtis, Zoey Steer, Tiah Hassall, Bridget Mulder and Tara Goss working hard together. Up forward Matilda Clarke was eventually able to kick our first major, however the Strathmore girls were still 11 points down at the half.
The second half began well for our side with Matilda Fitzpatrick swung forward she was able to make an immediate impact kicking a major and putting us within 5 points. Captain Taylah Gilcrist had been sensational across half back intercepting all day with Ruby Vaina and Ava Cocomello while Holly Clough, Hollie Lawson and Charlie Damonze- Lorenzetto provided great targets up forward.
Hollie Capuano, Evie Michael, Sofie Baird and Audrey Marnell brought their run through the middle of the ground while Jeane Brasher, Ava Dean and Lucille Cotterill were as solid as ever in defence. Strathmore was able to kick one more major for the day with Hollie Lawson kicking truly however it wasn’t enough and eventually fell 4 goals short of the Geelong school.
An outstanding effort and never say die attitude was displayed from all on the team on the day. The coaches, staff and wider community couldn’t be more proud of the effort our girls put in.
Congratulations to all involved.

Year 7 Art Lino Printing
Once we had made various prints of our artwork we had many options on what to do with our different prints. For our best black and white print, we had to mount it via the process of cutting out a square from black paper and sticking our work from behind to appear as a frame. Once we have done that, we had the option to cut out sections on another one of our prints to then stick coloured pieces of paper and newspaper on the back to make our work have more colour and pattern.

Ying: Ying likes Swanston Street best. There are many beautiful flowers. The library is very big. I have been there before. There are many books. The library has other spectacular statues. I think it is very beautiful. I think Melbourne has many food which is delicious. The atmosphere is very good. I like this place. Sasio:My favourite place is the Flinders Street Station. Because the building is very beautiful, there are many clocks, it looks very spectacular and magnificent. The streets in China are not as organized as in Melbourne, and people's houses are all tall buildings. Chad:My favourite part of the excursion is Melbourne Central. It has many foods from many countries. And in the city, it has many stores, milk tea. especially the library is so big. I think inside the library has many equipment for students to study. I very love Melbourne. Kevin:My favourite place is the art gallery. In here has weird things but it is interesting, like a piece of wood, the room is all red, a hallucination room ....But the hallucination room is what I like the most. The artist's name is Taree Mackenzie , inside the room have another room and also has magical lights, it make hallucinations when people see. I very love Australia

Intermediate Girls Netball
The first game we came up against Springside West SC, which we ended up winning 19-9. April McWiliiam, Anna Dona-Doni and Holly Watson were superb in the midcourt, keeping control of the tempo of the game and giving encouragement throughout each quarter. Maribyrnong College was the next match, the girls knew this would be a tough game and that we would need to get off to a great start if we wanted to be competitive with this team. Unfortunately, Maribyrnong were too good and ended up winning 42-6, despite the defensive efforts from Olivia Nation, Daisy James, Molly Luzietti.
Our last game for the round was against Footscray High School, we wanted to finish on a high and put the game against Maribyrnong behind us. Sienna Fragapane, Lexi Homer and Holly Klameris were amazing in goals and were helped throughout the game by Manha Naseer, Samantha Rizzo and Madeline McAndrew. We won the game 15-9.
We missed our fellow teammates that were either competing in the Herald Sun Shield or who couldn’t make it on the day. Thank you to Sahara Ball, Taylah Gilcrist, Tara Goss, Charlie Damonze Lorezetto, Matilda Fitzpatrick, Emily Holmes, Estelle Sacco and Marley Ciantar.
Fantastic effort by you all and looking forward to next years endeavours.
