Cobaw Winter Sports

On Wednesday, 14 June, a group of students travelled to Romsey Primary School and Romsey Recreational Reserve to compete in the Cobaw Winter Sports Competition.

Braemar was represented by teams in netball, tee-ball and football. There were approximately twelve schools involved throughout the day.

Details and results for each of the teams are below.



Congratulations to our Braemar Boys/Mixed team who defeated St Ambrose to finish the day in 3rd place.


girls tee-ball


Congratulations to our Section A Girls team! The top three teams (Braemar, St Mary’s and Romsey Primary School) actually finished the day in equal place. This meant that it came down to goal percentage and fortunately, having scored 96 goals for the competition, Braemar took out the top spot!



Our Section B Mixed/2nd Girls team finished 5th.

Braemar also supplied umpires for the day; thank you to all those who umpired.



Our Braemar team finished the day with two wins and three losses. We were proud to have three girls on our team who hadn’t played football before or had just started to play this year. Well done to our team who played a good team game but unfortunately were simply overrun by larger teams on the day.

Special mention to some of our Best On Ground players from the day – Jake Grinter, Will Janky, Matt Barake, and Hayden Balcam Kratz.



Year 5 – Civics and Citizenship Incursion

Earlier today, our Year 5 students had a number of interesting visitors from the justice and law enforcement communities as part of their Civics and Citizenship studies. Mr Rohan Miller and Mr David Plunkett spoke to the students about their roles as lawyers and how they work to uphold justice. Two police officers also visited to talk about their roles as law enforcers. Sergeant Eddy Barake runs the police station at Romsey, while Australian Federal Policeman, Brian Birch plays an important role in counter terrorism operations at the Melbourne Airport.

We were very lucky to have such engaging speakers; the students paid rapt attention and asked some terrific questions. It was a great presentation and the group learned a lot about law and the law enforcement and justice roles in our community.

VCE & VCE VET Music Concert

This Friday evening, 23 June, Braemar’s Music Department will be returning to the Mountview (Mount Players) Theatre in Macedon to present an evening of performances by our Year 10, 11 and 12 (VCE) students. The students are studying advanced music pathways.
At the debut VCE Concert in 2016, an audience of Braemar parents, students, friends and family enjoyed performances from our VCE 3/4 Solo Performance students as they prepared a program of material for their year end performance exams in October.

This year we’ll expand the concert programme to include both 1/2 and 3/4 VCE Solo Performance students as well as members from our new 1/2 VCE VET Music Industry (Performance) course. The evening presents a great opportunity for any students and families interested in studying music in senior school to see and hear examples of the possible pathways in our Music program through the senior years.

The concert will run from 6:30 to 8pm. Seats are limited (general admission) so we ask that those interested email our Director of Music, Mr Shaun Evans, at directorofmusic@braemar.vic.edu.au to reserve seats.
Coffee and tea will be provided at the interval.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2017 VCE and VCE VET Music Concert.
Friday June 23rd, Mountview Theatre (Smith St, Macedon next to Jubilee Hall), from 6:30pm.
