Thank you to Jasper (Yr 12) and their parent Anna for an incredible contribution to Alia history — Jasper and Anna made a gingerbread house based on the Alia College floor plan, and the result was amazing!
We feel like a school again. There are loud conversations in the foyer, laughter, quiet classes, noisy classes, robust conversations and best of all happy eyes (and, we assume, happy faces under the masks!).
Do what seems to work even if that involves playing games and odd sleeping hours. If you have what it takes, attend the online lessons. That is highly recommended. Join the rest of us stressed individuals.
Parents please take care of yourselves first. You are no value to your kids if you go under.
Please remember that you can always call if you have any concerns or matters to discuss.
The staff at Alia have a diverse range of interests that we only talk about by the water cooler. Here are some of the things people have been getting up to when they aren’t at school.
We may be in lockdown, but we still have to eat!

If you imagine life on a spectrum with lockdown at one end, a camping trip to Alia’s bush property in Colac is as far on the opposite end as you can get without your feet leaving the ground.
The Junior Japanese students were set the task of creating a “Kyaraben” which is a style of elaborately arranged bento (Japanese boxed lunch) which features food decorated to look like people, characters from popular media, animals, and plants. The Junior Japanese students created these kyarabens at home in their online class during lockdown.
To wrap up the school term, French students were treated to a couple of excursions. The Senior class enjoyed a film at the French Film Festival, and the Juniors had a meal at Roule Galette on Flinders Lane.
by Hagan (English teacher) The latest honey harvest is in. Maddix (yr 9), Vincent (yr 12) and Amalina (Science teacher) seized on a sunny afternoon to climb up on the carport and make sure the bees don’t run out of space in their hive.
