Braemar News

As we begin the 2018 school year, we are excited to announce that our Tuckshop will now be managed internally. This provides some exciting opportunities for Braemar as we move to become a multi-campus College. We are delighted to welcome Deb and Petra to the College Staff.

A (belated) congratulations to Isabelle Luxmoore who came first in the youth division at the World Dressage Challenge held at Boneo Park, late last year.

At the end of 2017, a group of Year 12s, along with Mr Russell Deer, Ms Rachael Hillier and Ms Jessie Shipp travelled to Nepal. The trip is offered as a Schoolies Alternative; the students take part in a community project at a school in Ghat before trekking to Base Camp, Mount Everest.

At the end of September this year, a group of Year 10s, along with Mr Michael Horne and Ms Kara Menzies travelled to Cambodia.

Read all about their trip and see some of their amazing photos here.

Congratulations to Jason Rising of Year 11 on winning a Macedon Ranges Youth Award in the ‘Positive Mental Health Promotion’ category.

Jason won the award for the development of a mobile app called ‘Anxiety: Revelation of Mind’ that recreates the experience of rising anxiety through a game.

As part of the Semester One reports, some year levels have a section labelled ‘Student Comment’. This section provides those students with an opportunity to comment on their semester, in their own words.

Last Thursday and Friday, four teachers from Tokai, Japan, visited us up at Braemar. They came to experience, observe and teach in an Australian educational setting.

Tomorrow night is the debut performance of this year’s original production, The Curious Case of the Cookie.

Jacksons@Braemar has opened up trybooking for the next few weeks so that you can jump online and book your seat for lunch or dinner hosted by our talented VCE Hospitality students.

Tickets are available now for this year’s production, an original musical called The Curious Case of the Cookie.
