Braemar News


An impressive array of toys was donated by Braemar College students to the recent Brotherhood of St Laurence Toy Shop Appeal.

The Braemar College basketball teams continue to compete this week at at the 2016 Helloworld Australian School Championships in Melbourne.

The College has fielded two teams, who have been trying hard amongst some very strong competition.

We wish them all the best as they compete over the last 2 days of the championships.

After a 16 Day, 800km journey around the Sri Lanka, the Braemar College Year 12 Schoolies Alternative program came to end last night.

The group safely landed in Melbourne and were greeted by family and friends at the arrivals hall of the International Terminal.

The GVBR Team rode proudly into Geelong today, completing their rise that commenced last Sunday at Hall’s Gap in the Grampians.

The team encountered beautiful days, some cold starts, some head winds and some glorious views. The team consisted of Year 10 and 11 students, parents, old collegians and staff.

The Braemar schoolies alternative tour have arrived back in Colombo after travelling from Gaulle. They had some funds left over and visited an orphanage in Colombo to donate these to the sisters.

Here’s what’s on the College Calendar leading up to the end of the year.


After enjoying the Udawalawe National Park and the elephants, the Braemar group ventured to the coast of Sri Lanka to the ancient trading city of Gaulle. With its impressive architecture, especially the walls, it was a stark contrast to the Udawalawe National Park.

Today is the last day for the students working in the Monaragala School. The students have been working hard and we look forward to hearing and seeing what their achievements have been.

The Braemar College group has been met by the Principal at an assembly. They have planted some dragon fruit trees at the entrance to the school. The banner that they walked through was made by the students and is constructed out of polystyrene and painted. It says “we warmly welcome everybody”.  The symbols are of prosperity.
