Jason Rising, of Year 11, has recently designed, developed and released an online game called Anxiety: Revelation of Mind.
Jason has spent approximately twelve months developing the game and in that time he has also learnt how to program and 3D model. He has published the game online (see the link below) and is also considering other publishing platforms. The version of Anxiety: Revelation of Mind that is currently published is a prototype, Jason explains that this version doesn’t include the entire story that he has planned.
The goal of the game is to uncover the story; in order to advance the story, the player has to complete levels by solving puzzles along the way. The puzzles are generally based on the environment the player finds themselves in; for example, there may be a burst pipe causing hot steam to escape which blocks the pathway that the player needs to take. The player must find a way to remove the steam – such as deactivating the boiler that is producing the steam – before advancing to the next level.
Congratulations to Jason on this fantastic achievement.

This year’s VCE Art Exhibition, celebrating the Unit 3&4 Visual Arts at Braemar, will be held in Jackson Hall from Monday 20 to Friday 24 November.
The exhibition showcases the talents and skills of our Unit 3&4 students through Studio Arts, Visual Communication & Design, and Media Studies. The exhibition shows a variety of mediums used by our students, in both two and three dimensional forms.
Opening Night is on Monday 20 November from 5:00pm – 7:30pm. Formalities for the evening will commence at 6:30pm. VCE Media Studies work will be shown in B3 from 7:00pm – 7.30pm.
The exhibition will highlight the work of over 50 students and will contain both final pieces (Art and Media) and visual diaries. Importantly, the visual diaries explain the pathway to the final piece and are a wonderful testament to the thoughts of the students and the mentorship from their teachers.
In 2016, Braemar supported the Brotherhood of St Laurence Toy Shop Appeal by providing over 100 gifts for families experiencing social or financial disadvantage. Families in need are invited to come to the Toy Shop and choose a gift to give their children on Christmas Day. Braemar College has had extended links with the Brotherhood of St Laurence for many years. Many of our Senior School students have visited the organisation in Melbourne as part of their Exeat program, helping out in a variety of ways. We have also been fortunate in having speakers from the Brotherhood of St Laurence address our students on a diverse range of topics.
This year we would appreciate it if Braemar College families could help support the Toy Shop appeal once again. Our Christmas giving tree has been set up in the foyer of Braemar House and we are encouraging students to donate gifts or gift vouchers. Gifts can be left under the tree and vouchers should be handed in at Reception for safekeeping.
Please note the following guidelines:
- Toys / gifts should be suitable for children aged between 0-16 years.
- Please leave gifts unwrapped as this allows parents to select a gift that their child will love.
- Please only donate brand new gifts. The gift you donate may be the only present a child receives this Christmas, so we try to make sure that the gift is brand new.
- Popular gift ideas include sporting equipment, DVDs, puzzles and games, art and craft packs and clothing.
- Also consider giving a gift voucher. They are an ideal gift for older children and teenagers.
- The greatest need is for donations that are suitable for teens aged 14 and over.
Thank you for your support.

Roofing is visible on the skillion section of all learning pods and the oval and surrounding mound are also progressing. Works continue on Boundary Road (sewer and water) and on Romsey Road (road widening). Fences have been moved to allow access and maintain stock management due to significant grass growth.
Middle School staff visited the site again on 8 November in preparation to teach at the new campus next year.
