2018 COLLINGWOOD COLLEGE SWIMMING CARNIVAL
On Tuesday, 6th march we held our Annual Collingwood College Swimming Carnival at Fitzroy Pool for students in Years 5 – 10.
We had a full day of swimming and novelty events in glorious sunshine, finishing with the Student / Teacher relay race. All students raced and cheered throughout the day. The SRC cooked in excess of 200 sausages and the pool sold out of Cornetto ice creams!
2018 House honours went to: 1st Red House 54 points, 2nd Blue & Green House 52 points, 4th Yellow House 47 points.
The Teachers won the Student / Teachers relay – AGAIN…
A BIG thank you to everyone, students and teachers, for making the day such a success.
Our next carnival will be the Athletics Carnival for all students from Years 5 – 12 on 24th May at the brand new Collingwood Harriers Athletics Track.

REGGIO 1-2 VISIT NGV TRIENNIAL EXHIBITION
Last week, Reggio year 1 and 2 went to The National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) to view the fabulous Triennial exhibition.
Our current project title is Pattern. We wanted to explore patterns in a variety of ways and see how different artists create patterns.
Here are some of the student’s reflections on their favourite parts of the excursion:
The excursion was a great success and the children came back with lots of enthusiasm about the different artwork they had seen. We wonder what our Reggio class will create?
The teachers would like to give a big thank you to all our parent helpers, as without you we could not have gone on such an amazing excursion. Thank you,
Simon, Emma & Katie
