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.

Please remember that you can always call if you have any concerns or matters to discuss.
We may be in lockdown, but we still have to eat!

Within days of Term I beginning, Della (Year 12) had petitioned her bookstore employer to allow her to use damaged books in a book sale […]
by Hagan (English teacher) Nobody knew if camp would happen this year. Restrictions might have prevented it, and if not restrictions, the difficulty of finding a place that could take 60 or so people at short notice. What do you do when faced with such uncertainty? Go with what you know. We’ve camped at Euroa […]
by Hagan (English teacher) At the end of Term IV, we moved the bees from from their winter hive into a summer hive. The winter hive is smaller, so the bees don’t get too cold. The summer hive is larger, so the bees can keep cool by moving air through the hive. When it gets […]
