Ms Jillian English & the Junior Teams
International Student Program Homestay
We provide homestay to these students while they are enrolled at the school. Length of stay can vary from one to three years. Study Abroad students enrol at Strathmore Secondary College for 3 to 12 months. As of January 2023, students pay $320 per week for accommodation and 3 meals a day. This money does not have to be declared on a tax return as it is considered “reimbursement” not income.
We are looking for families that can provide a safe, comfortable and caring environment whilst the students are studying at Strathmore.
If you are interested in becoming a Homestay family please contact Jan Maas, Homestay Coordinator on 0414 863 047 or Cathy Di Battista, International Student Manager, on 0417 301 835 to discuss further.
They have explored line, form, colour, proportion and tone in graphite pencil, oil and soft pastels and, most recently, charcoal. Embracing the mess and immediacy of the medium, students created large gestural drawings of a mannequin and scarf. Each work, like the students, had its own style.

Intermediate Girls Volleyball
First up was Sirius Secondary College and whilst Sirius won the first set, the girls managed to come back and win the next two sets. Next, the girls played EKC and again managed to win this match in a very close three-setter. This brought the girls to the semi-final match of the day against EKC's second team, in which they won in straight sets. The girls then found themselves in the grand final against Rosehill Secondary and their winning streak did not end here. The girls won the grand final in another very exciting three-set match, which was an amazing result!
The girls played so well together and demonstrated exceptional teamwork skills. A special mention to Olivia Speechley and Evie Michael for their exceptional serving, Cady Jacobson, Amber Dulhunty and Nina Kapoulitsas for their excellent defence work on the court, as well as Matilda Fitzpatrick and Mikayla Patterson for their work at the net.
The girls had such a fun day and put in such a great effort! They should all be very proud. We are looking forward to the next round.

All students showed a great level of effort throughout the day and there were some outstanding individual performances from Oli Moxon, Ollie Salmon, Ty Davis, Matthew Moncur and Cassandra Biscocho, who also broke a record on the day!
Our relay teams were the strongest of all the schools with 11 of our teams placing 1st and making it through to the next round of competition.
Thank you and congratulations to all the students who came along on the day - you demonstrated excellence and represented Strathmore in such a positive way! The next round of competition will be on the 30th of March in Geelong.
