Intermediate Girls Football
Our girls began the day kicking 4 behinds against Buckley before we were able to kick 6 straight goals to take a handy 38 point lead in to the half time break. We then motored away in the second half and won the game 63-7.
Our second game was against Mount Alexander College who showed grit and determination in a really strong defensive effort but the girls from Strathmore once again proved too strong winning the game 35-0.
A big congratulations to all the girls involved, they are all looking forward to the next round and a big thanks to assistant coach Miss Rigden for all her help on the day.

To Melbourne with Love
My name is Alice and I am the new Italian Language Assistant.
I like studying languages and I love my own language so I enjoy teaching it to others. I have experience in teaching Italian to foreigners in Italy and I really love this job.
I believe that the study of languages is very important to fully understand the mindset of the culture they belong to.
Co.As.It, the Italian Assistance Association, offered me the opportunity to come and support students with their study of Italian. I can help them with pronunciation, with fluency and to get to know some current aspects of Italian culture. At the same time, for me it's a great opportunity to learn about Italian teaching and learning in a different country.
I left Genoa two weeks ago and I arrived only at the beginning of the second term but I already feel comfortable.I would like to thank all the staff for welcoming me and I look forward to working with the students in their Italian classes throughout the year.
State Swimming Championships
Ahmed Elgammal competed in the 50m and 100m butterfly and came 3rd in both events. Ollie Salmon competed in the 50m Breaststroke and was an integral part of both the Medley and Freestyle Relays. Edward Nguyen, Damien Reynolds and Cinar Cakir all also competed in a team relay and achieved great results.
Thank you and a big congratulations to all 5 students who competed in the swimming championships – we couldn’t be prouder!
Year 10 Jewellery Design
Students are working to a design brief where they need to size their wax to fit their finger, and convert the weight of their wax to ensure it comes in under a certain price when they have it cast in sterling silver.

Year 7 Digital Technology
Their study of computer languages has led to creating blocks of code to program our Circuit Playground Microcontrollers. Students began by following tutorials to code flashing sirens, infrared receivers, and more interactive devices such as dice, Hot Potato and Lucky Wheel Board Games.

School Exchange Program Bologna - Strathmore
Ideally, your family should be able to offer the student(s) a room of their own, either single or twin share as well as transport to and from school. The students are aged between 15 and 17 and are from il Liceo Galvani in Bologna, Italy, a prestigious senior high school specializing in teaching foreign languages through science. These students speak fluent English.
This is a great opportunity for Strathmore students to make new friends and learn more about the Italian culture and lifestyle.
Should you be interested in hosting an Italian student (s) or for additional information, please contact Antonella Alampi or Cathy Di Battista.
We hope to hear from you soon.
