A huge thankyou to all those involved in the transformation of the garden outside our portable classrooms.
Teacher Reece Traeger contacted Bunnings last year initiating the Project, which was then taken on by Sale Bunnings employee Leanne Chester, as well as Bairnsdale and Warragul store employees. Leanne liaised with the school to involve Bianca Mowbray's Year 9 class and the Hands on Learning Team as well as parent Jess Evans to carry out the works.
Bunnings have donated all furniture, plants, wood, mulch etc and we are extremely appreciative of their ongoing support of our College.
We would like to thank all the people in the Sale College community that braved the weather and attended the Welcome BBQ this week. Hopefully you got the opportunity to meet some of the staff here at Sale College.
The information session introduced the Year Seven Team, discussed upcoming events, highlighted the need to contact the school if your student is absent as well as covered the ever growing use of the school program COMPASS. Again we would like to thank those who attended and should anyone have any questions don’t hesitate to call and ask.
The Year 11 biology classes have been learning about ecosystems & habitats and food chains & food webs in class.
On Thursday both classes joined together to investigate and compare the local ecosystems of Lake Guthridge and the Port of Sale. Students measured pH levels, turbidity, temperature and light intensity. Students collected water samples to observe microorganisms under the microscope once back at school.
2019 is a new beginning for our club. It is taking on a school community focus. A number of Year Sevens and Nines have answered the call. Technology at Guthridge Campus is very well resourced with modern equipment. The arrival of ten new Flashforge Creator Pro 3D printers for our Year Eight program has created real life opportunity for our club members. During lunch time, the club members are actively engaged in unboxing, assembling, calibrating, testing and commissioning our new machines.
A special thank you to the following students for their voluntary efforts. Year Seven: Alana, Abbie, Annabelle, Keeley, Macey, Mercedes, Rebecca and Teune. Year Nine: Ashia, Hollie and Jade.

On Thursday the 7th of February the Year Nine Body Balance girls visited The Movement Hub to explore different types of physical activity and exercise. The girls worked up a sweat with Personal Trainer Sarah and put in huge efforts with each of the movements. Sarah had the girls doing bear crawls, sit ups, lunges and boxing. Our Body Balance girls are very grateful to The Movement Hub for their passion about physical wellness and are excited to experience a range of physical activities and community establishments within the subject. Miss Pahina thanks the girls for their positive participation and looks forward to seeing the students engage in a variety of physical activities throughout the semester.
