We hope everyone has had a relaxed and enjoyable school break. Throughout the upcoming 10-weeks, students at Harkaway Hills College will be challenged to grow in teamwork, in their sense of justice, as well as in their love of learning through a number of exciting programs and initiatives that we will be hosting this term.

Students are to come in their Sports Uniforms, and once again are most welcome to wear coloured shirts, face paint etc. to support their Houses. House points will be given out for team spirit! Please bring water bottles and a snack for recess. Hot dogs and fruit will be available for lunch – these will be free, however for those who are able it would be appreciated to receive a gold coin donation to help us cover costs.
