Cheltenham Girls’ High School has been servicing the Beecroft/Cheltenham area since 1957. The school is known for its great staff and positive learning environment.
I was recently invited to the school for a tour by Principal Suellen Lawrence before classes. Suellen told me that every morning some of the students make coffee for the teachers and their classmates. Now, I very much enjoy my morning flat whites and it was a pleasure to have a coffee made by the students. The girls even showed me how to use the machines myself – a good example of learning from the next generation.
I was also pleased to inform the staff and the students that Cheltenham Girls’ had been drawn to participate in the 2020 Premier’s Anzac Memorial Scholarship. This will mean that some students will have the opportunity to travel to Singapore and Greece to tour some of the most important battlefields of the two world conflicts. I’d like to strongly encourage next year’s years 9 and 10 history students to apply.
Thank you to Suellen and the staff and students of Cheltenham Girls’ High School for hosting me at their school and I hope to return soon.
