Victorian Schools Netball Championships

Last Thursday, 10 August, Braemar was represented at the Victorian Schools Netball Championships at the State Netball & Hockey Centre by two girls teams; one junior and one intermediate.

The junior team finished the day third on the ladder after two wins and two losses (they had a bye for their fifth game).

The intermediate team had a very competitive day, winning four out of five matches. The final match was the decider to secure the top of the ladder and unfortunately, after a tough fight, our girls were defeated by McKinnon Secondary College.

Well done to both teams and to their coaches.

Historic Fiction Author visits our Year 8s

On Wednesday morning, a group of Year 8 students were treated to a visit by published historic fiction author, Kirsty Manning.

Kirsty shared her advice on researching and writing fiction with the students of the Year 8 Encounter class. As part of their study of Medieval History, students are developing diary entries based on the life of Joan of Arc.
