Middle School

It was another busy week for the boys. It has been rewarding to see the support shown for boys who seek to challenge themselves outside of their comfort zone. Boys should feel comfortable in seeking support when they need it and should be able to identify at least one member of teaching or support staff who they feel comfortable to speak with. This is a valuable conversation to have with your sons.

Middle School Sport Representing the School is indeed a great honour and I wish all boys the very best in their fixtures tomorrow, amid challenging weather conditions. Boys are reminded about their obligation to their team at practice and on Saturday so that they have the best opportunity to play to their potential. Sport is an important element of the holistic development that we strive to instil our in our School values.

Year 7 Da Vinci Decathlon Eighteen teams participated in the ten Academic Disciplines competition on Monday 18 May 2019. After an intense day of pondering over Mathematics problems, writing poetry, completing English tasks, tacking the Science of land degradation among a host of other code breakers and Cartography exercises, Camberwell Grammar School’s two teams were placed first and third overall. Both teams achieved their excellent results by demonstrating great teamwork, perseverance, a solid knowledge of all the areas of the decathlon and having fun. The winning team now progresses to the State Final to be held next week at Methodist Ladies’ College. The results for the Regional da Vinci Decathlon (Victoria) held at Camberwell Grammar School were: Place
