What is THE LOCKDOWN CHALLENGE?
With the ongoing COVID-19 lockdown and our current inability to rehearse in-perosn, the Sale College school production team have decided to launch "The Lockdown Challenge." To keep our students engaged in their upcoming performance and to shake off some of the frustrations of lockdown we are launching THE LOCKDOWN CHALLENGE, a series of FREE, Dancing, Singing and Acting challenges open to any production participant (actors, dancers, choir, backstage) but also to any family member or supporter in the local community who wants to take part.
To make THE LOCKDOWN CHALLENGE even more exciting there are PRIZES on offer for the winners of each category as well as an overall "Champion." We are thrilled to work with a fantastic panel of guest judges who will kindly give up their time to judge each stage of the competition.
For more information see the Latest Edition of The Sale College Newsletter - The Buzz.
Kylie Barnes, our school nurse is grateful to the students who took the time to enter the RU OK day Poster competition and think about how important it is to consider how others feel, especially during these unsettling times around lockdown and isolation.
The winners for the Poster competition were Jade Purdon Year 11 and Rachael Page Year 10, Macalister Campus and Joseph Gardner, Year 9, Guthridge Campus.
Year 12 Practice exams will be held Monday 27th September – Thursday 30th September. These will be held at school in the Macalister Campus student lounge. (adhering to COVID safety guidelines). Practice exams are an opportunity to see where you are at and what else you may need to study prior to your end of year exams.
We are also offering the opportunity for students to study together in the holidays. Tues 21st, Wed 22nd and Thursday 23rd Sept from 10 am– 2pm. This will be set up at school in the Macalister library with staff attending as a support.

The GAT (General Achievement Test) has been scheduled for Tuesday 5th of October for all students completing a unit 3 / 4 subject. Students are to arrive at the Memorial Hall prior to 9:45am for a 10 am start.
They are to bring pens, grey lead pencils and an eraser in a clear plastic pocket, a dictionary and a water bottle (also in a clear container). It is important students do not take any electronic device into the test including phones and watches.
Purpose of the GAT
The GAT is an essential part of the VCE assessment procedure. Although GAT results do not count directly towards VCE results, they play an important role in checking that School-based Assessments and external assessments have been accurately assessed. GAT results are used in the calculation of the Derived Examination Score (DES).
Australia's National Portrait Gallery are hosting the Darling Portrait Prize and the Little Darlings Youth Portrait Prize in honour of Mr L Gordon Darling, one of the gallery's key establishers. Little Darlings Youth Portrait Prize is open to students from Kindergarten to Year 12, responding to the theme of 'identity' in any medium. Three winners will be chosen from each age category by a panel of judges. The twelve winning artworks will be used to create a calendar, as well as be displayed in the National Portrait Gallery alongside the Darling Portrait Prize in 2022.
This would be an awesome opportunity for our creative students to work on their portraiture skills and potentially gain some significant recognition for their art.
Entries must be submitted by the 8th of October 2021, more details are available on their website:

Sale College Sale College presents F Scott Fitzgerald's masterpiece adapted for stage; The Great Gatsby. Set in Jazz Age New York, the play tells the tragic story of Jay Gatsby, a self-made millionaire, and his pursuit of Daisy Buchanan, a wealthy young woman whom he loved in his youth.
The play explores the American dream gone sour. The greed and duplicity of US society in the 1920s through the eyes of the narrator, Nick Carroway. It's a story of glamour, love and betrayal depicting the lure of the rich and glamorous society of Long Island and New York – and how sometimes all that glimmers is not necessarily gold.
Produced in partnership with KCC Theatre and realised by Sale College students from years 7-12, The Great Gatsby promises to be a night of singing, dancing, extravagance and decadence. Combining dynamic acting with a live choir and brilliant dance ensemble, the talents of a large ensemble cast are on show as they breathe new life into an ageless classic.
In a little over a month from now, lockdowns permitting, this performance will be staged!
Book now to avoid disappointment!
