Welcome Week
Working with the current COVID-19 guidelines, the College celebrated a fantastic orientation 'Welcome Week' as we increasingly return to the energy and activity of a normal College year.

Our College is situated on the land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, whose stories, educational practices and connection to Country are part of the world’s oldest living culture.  We acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land, and pay our respects to Elders past, present and those emerging in our community.
