From Mr Phillips
The end of another term is fast approaching and we wish our large group of Year 10 students safe travels to Central Australia and beyond next week. It has also been a most productive week for our Year 9 students in their city experience as they discover more about their city, Melbourne.
The past few months has been extremely busy in the music department with a focus on both the Victorian Schools Music Festival and Royal South Street, Ballarat. There have been some outstanding results achieved. Congratulations to all teachers and students involved. Full details of all results can be found in this newsletter’s music report. Next week’s Gala concert (21/09), further showcases the talents of all our ensembles. Bookings can be made through TryBooking.

Heritage Perpetual Scholarship
The Heritage and Alumni group of Ringwood Secondary College is pleased to offer these scholarships again to worthy applicants commencing VCE in 2018. Applications from within and outside the school are eligible. Applications close on October 30 and interviews will be held in November.
We will be taking delivery of our newest buildings in October and the final touches are now commencing. It will be exciting to be in fit for purpose facilities that enable students and teachers to further develop their teaching and learning capacity. In early Term 4 I will share with you plans for our opening and the chance to share the excitement of the new build.
Our district Athletics competition was held at Proclamation Park, in trying conditions yesterday. Despite being without key runners, due to a rescheduled event and City Experience, that required a number of our younger students to compete in higher level age groups, Ringwood was able to successfully defend its title. Congratulations to all competitors and well done on being such great team players and supporting each other to achieve such a fantastic set of results.
Best wishes to our First Aid Attendant Nancy Davies who is retiring at the end of this term and thanks for being there to support our young people whenever they needed your help.
