This week the Year 12 Outdoor and Environmental Studies class had their first camp of the year to Wilsons Promontory National Park. The students spent three days at the Prom investigating a range of human relationships with the outdoor environment from various Indigenous cultural experiences, through to the influence of a number of major historical events subsequent of European settlement. Unfortunately the weather conditions did not favour the group with rain and minimal surf which resulted in a very short surf session. Despite all this, group morale was still high and they made the most out of the learning opportunities presented to them.

Emma Tibballs in Year 9 was yesterday awarded the Aunty Dot Peters scholarship. This important award is named in honour of Aunty Dot Peters a champion for reconciliation and recognition. In honour of her father who died in service as a prisoner of war on the Thai-Burma railway, Aunty Dot initiated the Victorian Aboriginal Remembrance Service in 2005.
It is now a signature annual event for Aboriginal Victorians.
Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, The Hon Gavin Jennings yesterday presented Emma and other recipients with their awards at an event at Parliament House. The recipients were selected as scholarship winners by the Victorian Aboriginal Remembrance Committee from a highly competitive field. The Committee said the four students selected displayed great commitment to their education and service to their community.
Minister Jennings said it was Aunty Dots dream to establish this award to support young emerging Aboriginal Victorians and it is wonderful to be fulfilling that dream.
The BBQ was a fantastic event and it was great to see so many members of theschool community here to share the evening. Not only was there excellent service on the barbeque but there was also a great buzz around the night. Key information about how the school operates, such as attendance, class schedules and the all important Year 7 camp was presented.
Thank you all that attended the night.
On Friday the 12th of February, Sale College held its 2020 Swimming Carnival which saw a great number of staff and students embracing the house spirit. Nothing could stop the competitive spirit amongst staff and students not even the average weather.
Thanks to all the students for giving it their all in the races and the novelty events. A huge thank you must go out to the staff and students who continue to go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure a fun filled day at the pool was had by all.

Congratulations to Ruarai Morton who is the successful Sale applicant for the Sigurd Malmo Memorial Scholarship for 2020. The Malmo scholarship was set up in memory of Sigurd Malmo who migrated from Norway in the 1930s.
Sigourd was a practising vet in Maffra for many years as well as being an active member of the local community, serving as Maffra Shire President. Two scholarships have been awarded every year since his death in 1970, one to a Maffra Secondary College student and one to a student from a Sale Secondary School.
Many thanks go to Margo Carruthers who came to the school to personally present the award to Ruarai at the Macalister Campus student assemby this week.
What a fantastic start to 2020 we have had in Year 7! The Year 7 students have gone above and beyond our expectations this week. Whether it’s in the classroom or out in the yard our new students have demonstrated how they can uphold our three values of: Respect, Achievement and Belonging. Staff have reported how impressed they are with students in the classroom. Students are attempting all activities, getting involved in class discussion and trying to find success in all of their subjects. On behalf of the Year 7 team we would like to congratulate all our Year 7’s and let’s keep up the amazing work!
Sale College Dux for 2019 Calvin Fahy with a score of 96.15, is pictured at the Sale College Awards Day with Emily Field, Sale College Dux in 2018.
A big congratulations to Calvin Fahy who is the Sale College Dux for 2019. Calvin gave a heart warming speech at the conclusion of the Awards Day where he thanked his teachers, family and friends for all their help and support through out this year.
Calvin made the comment that the first question from his peers when the ATARs came out wasn't "what was your score, but are you happy?" Calvin was recognising and acknowledging the importance of our well being, especially at this time in the academic year when there is so much focus on ATAR scores.
Calvin, you inspired and moved us with your comments. We wish you all the best with your future and your studies.
Today was a day to celebrate Achievement and look back at some of the special events of 2019.
Congratulations to all the award recipients and all the best for the future to our Year 12 Class of 2019 as they move on to the next stage of their lives post school.
