Term 1 well underway


Term one is well underway with students engaged in learning tasks and a range of co-curricular activities. At Pascoe Vale Girls College we recognise the importance and value of both academic and co-curricular programs to support intellectual, emotional, social, creative and physical development with the co-curricular program being integral to achieving our vision of Empowering Young Women.

Participation in co-curricular programs benefits students in many ways including: the opportunity to develop relationship skills and, in many cases, lasting friendships, learning to manage their time effectively and be proactive and creative problem-solvers, developing new skills and talents and the improvement of self-esteem.

In Term 1 these programs have included the Year 7 camp, STEAM activities, Swimming Sports, International Women’s Day and the College Student Leadership Conference all highlighted in this newsletter.


Progress Reports

Progress Reports will be available via Compass on Friday 16 March. As this is a new system of reporting at the College, the first progress reports for 2018 will also be posted to families with explanatory notes. As mentioned in the previous newsletter, teachers will report on a student’s Achievement, effort, Homework and Organisation, and Classroom Behaviour during each 6 to 7 week reporting period using the descriptors: Excellent, Very Good, good, acceptable or Needs Attention. This regular reporting will enable parents to track their daughter’s progress across the semester and provide a framework for conversations regarding learning and work practices.


College Council

The first meeting of the 2018 College Council will be held on March 13. Thank you to those Council members who re-nominated for this year. We look forward to your contribution at council and valued input into the future direction of our school.


Victorian Association of State Girls Secondary Colleges

On Wednesday 28 February, I met with Principals from Melbourne Girls College, Canterbury Girls’ Secondary College, Gilmore College for Girls, The Mac.Robertson Girls’ High School, Mentone Girls’ Secondary College and Matthew Flinders Girls Secondary College to continue a long standing collaboration with the common purpose to advocate for girls’ education and provide opportunities for our students to come together as leaders with key events held each year. This year, student leaders from Pascoe Vale Girls College will attend conferences with students from Association schools and represent the College as Association ambassadors. The Association also sponsors scholarships for students from each school to support their learning in Senior School Programs.

Student Leadership

Student Leadership Day


The Year 12 Student Executive have been busy developing the annual whole school student leadership conference since they were appointed late last year. Over 90 students from varied leadership positions will participate on the 9th March including form captains, junior and middle school executives, as well as sport, music, bus and art captains and St Johns leaders.


The day will include inspirational speakers and enlightening workshops around the theme More than just a label. This day long workshop run entirely by students, for students, is a unique and exciting opportunity for school leaders to unite.


Some activities involve team-building,others an understanding of what it means to be a leader, and what qualities each student can bring to their role. Students will also discuss issues they face at PVGC, what they can do to help the school be an even better place to learn and connect with people, as well as how they can maintain good mental health for themselves and others.


A range of students will bring back reports from the day to help students get to know their student representatives better.

We'd like to congratulate our PVGC leaders for this year ............

International Women's Day



With the sky blue, the sun shining and the school gates adorned with large purple, green and white tulle bows, Thursday March 8 was set to be a wonderful day of celebration for PVGC students and staff. The international theme for 2018 IWD was #pressfor progress and this was embraced by all at PVGC.

Each year level celebrated the day with their own special assembly where a guest speaker spoke about her own journey and inspired students to look beyond themselves and ‘press for progress’ for not only themselves, but for all women.

The day’s speakers were Tina Hosseini, an ex PVGC student who is now a Multiculture Commissioner for Victoria, amongst her many other community roles. Tina spoke to Year 11 and 12 students about gender equality in the workforce, and wider world.  Angela Marroncelli is a nurse practitioner who currently leads the Mental Health Emergency Crisis team for triple 000. She gave Year 10 students an incredible insight into a critical role that her team plays everyday in assisting people in crisis who call triple 000. Demet Divaroren, an ex PVGC who is an award winning author, spoke to Year 9  students about identity and the inspiration and support that the women in her family had provided for her own career journey. Her message to the students was for them to ‘own your own voice’. Frances Coulston spoke to the Year 8 students. She has had a varied and interesting career journey, including being a circus performer, physiotherapist and now an entrepreneur who has opened her own Circus school. She spoke to the students about having the self confidence and courage to pursue their own business ideas. Year 7 students enjoyed meeting and listening to MFB female firefighters, Rachel Cowling and Sandy Hearn. Both are very experienced firefighters and had different stories to tell about how they became firefighters - a non traditional area of work for women.


As part of each year level assembly, the student leaders were recognised and presented with their leadership badges. It was fitting to acknowledge our student leaders on such an important day for women.

The IWD festivities included staff and students wearing purple, green and white accessories, a bake sale organised by the St John Cadets, and culminated with an outdoor concert at lunchtime showcasing the incredibly talented young women of PVGC. It was a relaxed and wonderful event enjoyed by all! Approximately $400 was raised from the bake sale and donations which will support the Willum Warrain Aboriginal Association (for women and family support).


Organisation of the day was a mammoth effort by a huge team of people. Thank to everyone for your contribution including, IWD Committee, St John Cadets, PVGC Feminist Club, students leaders from each year level, the Music team (both staff & students), Yeramba photographers and all PVGC staff and students for embracing the day.

Lions Youth of the Year



Aisha’s experience

At the end of 2017 I decided that 2018 is my last year and I’m going to have a blast!

I decided that I’m going to put all my skills to the test and have #no regrets.


Public speaking is something that I have always been passionate about, and as nerve racking as it is, it is also a great opportunity to learn about yourself and meet a bunch of absolutely amazing people. Personally, participating in Lions Youth of Year, I had the privilege to attain some quite important skills that are not just applicable on stage but in everyday life as well. This opportunity allowed me to dig deep and explore better ways of writing and presenting a speech, also having Ms Foley giving up her time every lunch to helped us improve our way of expressing ourselves and our ideas. Some advice that I could give for future speakers would be believe that you can do it and own your mistakes no matter how big or small.

Aisha Farotan-Kashy


Ameema’s experience

The Lions Youth of the Year is a public speaking and school leadership program that encourages year 12 students to participate in presenting a speech and presenting two impromptus. There is also an interview which allows the participants to put their best foot forward and acknowledge their accomplishments.

My experience in participating in the Lions Youth of the Year was both rewarding and enjoyable. I found the volunteers to be so welcoming and supportive and The Lions to be such lovely people. The support provided by our teachers at Pascoe Vale Girls as well as the Lions and volunteers was genuinely appreciated. The process of practising and participating in Youth of the Year was a beneficial experience, it was incredibly fulfilling to watch each other get better and better with our impromptus and we had Ms Foley’s lunchtime sessions to thank for that. We as a group, were so supportive of each other and I want to thank you girls for that. I would also like to thank Ms Foley for her time and support as well as Ms Ankers and Mr Gemmola who were there to support Susie and I on the night. Finally, a huge congratulations to the Lions Youth of the Year winner Susie, who was absolutely amazing during her impromptus and speech, very proud of you Susie! I anticipate the future successes of our four winners in the future of this competition and applaud all of us for our effort and achievement.

Ameema Zeeshan

We are all very proud of this year’s PVCG participants in the Lions Youth of the Year. The students put a great deal of effort into their applications and their speeches, and all found the experience one of strong personal growth as they were required to move beyond their comfort zone and challenge what they thought was possible of themselves.


The twelve students from the college who participated in the club finals were Taylah Murray, Olivia Pavich, Susie El-Khoury, Dounia Hassoun, Azel Albadran, Jamila Glew-Gillis, Serenay Demir, Joulunar Alnajar, Ameema Zeeshan, Aisha Farotan-Kashy, Francesca Penco and Zahra Tokhi.  A number of teachers and parents attended this year to support the students including Ms Peddle, Mr Gemmola, Mr Forristal, Mrs Rodda, Ms Ankers, Ms Munari and Ms Tangee.


It is very exciting that four students from PVGC have won through to the zone finals. Congratulations Francesca, Dounia, Susie and Taylah. If you see these students, wish them all the best for the next round on the 13th March!


The Lions Youth of the Year aims to help young people gain experience in a range of areas before entering the workforce or other endeavours. These include leadership, citizenship, sport, community involvement and public speaking. Students speak to an interview panel about their experience in these areas. They then give a prepared five minute speech at a dinner, and answer two questions with no time for preparation. They have a two minute time limit on these impromptu questions. These impromptu questions are particularly challenging!

Junior School

Year 7 Camp 


The Year 7 camp to Gundiwindi Lodge from the 28th of February to the 2nd of March was a wonderful experience for both the 66 new Year 7 students who attended and the staff who joined them. Located on a farm in Silvan, the camp offered the opportunity to strengthen and forge friendships, as well as getting to know their teachers away from the classroom.


Students enjoyed the exciting activities that were on offer including the giant swing, flying fox, low ropes course, archery and up close encounters with blue tongue lizards, turtles and yabbies. Our final night included a campfire (complete with roasted marshmallows) and a sing-a-long. Before heading back to the College on Friday, we visited Healesville Sanctuary to learn about different endangered animals living in Australia, and saw some of our birds of prey in action in the ‘Spirits of the Sky’ show.


The Junior School team were glad to see many of our students moving out of their comfort zones, trying new things and supporting each other throughout the camp. We are now looking forward to seeing students continue to support one another as they continue to embrace opportunities within Pascoe Vale Girls College.

Discover STEM at RMIT - Friday 23rd February


Our 9E Science students were invited to attend RMIT’s second annual Discover STEM Day on Friday 23rd February. Sponsored by RMIT’s I Belong team and the Laika Academy, the program as designed to give your students an insight into the world of Science, Technology, Engineering and/or Maths (STEM), and the many career and study options that are available in these fields. All workshops were run by Laika facilitators and held in specialised labs and teaching spaces at RMIT’s City campus.


Welcome to RMIT Presentation and Laika Academy Introduction

Laika staff introduced students to the range of careers in STEM fields, and the study opportunities available to them at RMIT and elsewhere. Students also learnt about the range of study tours and opportunities that Laika offers to university students.


Turning plastic into product

The idea of recycling plastic bags has been around for over 20 years, and there are many ways to turn plastic bags into useful materials. Students discovered how to turn a discarded plastic bag into a variety of products, and start to understand the potential and value in plastic waste. All students (and teachers!) designed a phone pouch out of recycled plastic and then manufactured a prototype of their design to take home. The girls also made one for Ms Peddle and presented it to her upon their return to the College.

Electronics for inclusion

Students will be introduced to an exciting new technology that allows everyone to start building electronic circuits. Students were able to choose between using Arduino® boards, which allowed students to engage with some real life issues focusing on human centered design through simple electronics circuits, programming and building a drone, or programming a lazer bot.


Tradition vs innovation

Zo project is a social enterprise located in Hanoi. They make paper using a method that is over 800 years old, and highly sustainable. However, due to new and cheaper methods of making paper, the market for paper produced through this method is shrinking. During this activity, students worked in teams to examined the physical properties of Zo paper, such as its strength and durability and used it to design a bridge that could span the room. Teams developed their bridge and presented their finished product to the rest of the groups. A competition was also held to test the structural integrity of their designs.

Latrobe University Partnership Flyer

As part of our partnership with LaTrobe University, our STEAM students have been featured in their SHE (Science, Health and Engineering) Outreach Program advertising for 2018! Students are featured participating in the LaTrobe Seamless Science Experience and the Year 12 Chemistry Analytical Instruments Workshop.

In2science Peer Mentors

In2science peer mentors are currently studying university degrees in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) disciplines. They are placed as volunteers in selected year 7-10 Science or Maths classes, joining the class once per week for a 10 week period.

Working with the classroom teacher, the mentors help students, share their own experiences and motivations for studying at university, and relate school work to real-world examples. In2science mentors also act as role models, sharing their passion for STEM and encouraging secondary students from educationally-disadvantaged backgrounds to pursue tertiary studies.


Through weekly interactions, mentors help to:

  • Increase student engagement in science and mathematics

  • Enhance understanding of content and dispel common misconceptions

  • Break down stereotypes and provide a human face for science and maths; and

  • Build students’ own aspirations for STEM studies and careers

Debating at PVGC

C Grade Debating 

On the 1st of March, C Grade participated in the first round of debating for 2018. Our team for this round consisted of two new members, Bashira Burhan and Meerab Akmal. The topic for our debate was, ‘That we should ban the sale of all cars powered by fossil fuels by 2025’. We were given the affirmative side and built a strong case as to why we should support the ban. However, this proved to be a difficult side to argue because, as the opposite team contended, seven years is not enough time to pass an international law and to remove all the fossil-fuel powered cars in the world.   While it was an interesting debate and our team put in their best efforts, we unfortunately lost the debate by 1 point.  

By Abeer Parveen Fatima 9F

B Grade Debating 

Last Thursday night, Year 11s in the B Grade Debating team secured a win at the first debate of the year! As given by the Debaters Association of Victoria, the topic was “We should limit the number of government funded university places”.  With Udara Kandaoluwapathirannehelage (11D) opening as first speaker, she opened the team strong with her steadfast points and put the team on the path to victory. Skye Griffiths (11D) as second speaker, giving major body arguments, and Ameena Maafa (11E) tearing down the oppositions points as third speaker. The next debate for C and B Graders takes place late April – so wish them luck!

Careers News

Australian Defence Force Careers Expo


On Friday the 23rd of February, Ms Moloney took a group of students who may want to pursue a career in the Australian Defence Force to the Royal Exhibition Building where a careers expo for the Australian Defence Forces was being held. It was good to see and learn how they live and what happens when they are on base. They had a virtual reality activity where you could try to fly a helicopter and land it on a boat without crashing. There was another virtual reality activity where you got to help out on a mission. There were trucks on display and you could sit in them and see the inside. We all got a whole lot of insight and learned a lot about the army, navy and air force.

Around the Grounds

You may happen to have seen..........

Over the summer holidays and during Term 1, you may have noticed some big changes taking place around the school grounds. Last year, we were lucky enough to receive funding to develop our outside facilities. 

As a result, students now have some great outside multi-purpose astro-turf spaces to use both in and out of class. It is always great for our students to have access to state-of -the-art resources to support their learning. 

You may have also noticed the current state of the front oval along Lakeside Drive. This area is undergoing a complete revamp with new natural turf and a reticulation system. We are hoping work will be complete by the end of Term 1 and students will be able to use shortly after that.

Asthma Plans 

Did you know that using your blue/grey reliever more than 2 days per week could be an indication your asthma may not be well controlled?

Poor control over your asthma is associated with:
- More frequent symptoms
- increased risk of asthma flare-ups
- reduced ability to do your usual activities
- Increased need for healthcare

How to use a Spacer and Puffer - Four breaths technique


Asthma Action Plan

See a doctor for a signed Asthma Action Plan or Care Plan. Our college requires an up-to-date plan for each student with asthma at the start of the new school year.


Evidence tells us that using an Asthma Action Plan can help to reduce hospitalisations, improve lung function and reduce the number of days off school.


Your daughter’s written Asthma Action Plan outlines:

  1. What medication to take.
  2. How to tell if her asthma is getting worse.
  3. What to do if your symptoms are getting worse.
  4. What to do if she has an asthma attack.
