Robinvale College Performance
On Friday the 11th of October we were fortunate enough to have some special guests perform for our year 7, 8’s & 9’s. We assembled in the REC where we immediately became anxious for what was going to happen in the coming moments. Students from Robinvale Secondary College performed and amazed us with their talents through dancing, singing and also through playing music. The performance started off with a small introduction from one of Robinvale’s school teachers and then was kicked off with an amazing traditional Tongan performance made by the young boys of Robinvale Secondary College, with high expectations we anxiously waited for the next performance and as expected were not let down at all. After the first performance we were amazed by the talents of 4 girls who did another traditional Tongan dance as well as doing the Hula (hoo-lar). Then back came the boys performing for us their Tongan war dance and other traditional Tongan dances as well as doing their Tongan Haka (har-kar). After several amazing dance performances we were lucky enough to hear two girls sing with their amazing and angel-like voices, singing “Royals by Lordes” we were left stunned by the end of it. Afterwards we saw the brilliant band show-off their talents of playing all sorts of instruments and to end the wonderful performance we were fortunate enough to hear one of the girls do a solo singing “We are one, We are many” her voice was amazing and was a great way to end their spectacular performance. The performance was spectacular and I am so privileged to have witnessed it. Judging from the feedback of cheers from the audience I think it was safe to say that their performance was like no other and that everyone enjoyed every minute of watching it and the behaviour of our students left teachers and proud and grateful for Melton Secondary College. Thank you to all the teachers who organised it and a tremendous thank you to the Robinvale staff and students for organising such an enjoyable and amazing performance.

Japanese Exchange Program
Recently our Japanese Sister School 'Osaka Seiryo High School' visited Melton Secondary College (MSC) and stayed with student host families on their exchange to Australia. Japanese and MSC students were able to participate in a range of activities together, sharing experiences and making strong friendships along the way. The purpose of these exchange was to help our students become more fluent in Japanese and Japanese visitors more fluent in English. Below are some of the phots from their experiences.
We would like to thank all our host families who supported MSC and showed our Japanese visitors a magnificent time. We would also like to thank all the host MSC students who participated in the program and who made solid friendships with our visitors and now friends from Japan. Our Japanese friends throughly enjoyed their Australian experience making solid friendships and by participating in the many activities which included, City Adventures, Wildlife Parks, Science Works, Victoria Market, BBQs and many more activities held at Melton Secondary College. A big thank you to Ms. Tomomi Mori, who worked tirelessly to make sure that our students and visitors had a great experience.
Congratulations Kororoit House
Another fantastic effort from Kororoit House saw them emerge from the swimming pool as overall winners of the 2013 Swimming Sports Carnival. It was a beautiful sunny day at Melton Waves and a very good student attendance meant lots of students competing and plenty of supporters cheering swimmers. Well done to Mr Darcy, House Captains and staff for organising and running a wonderful day.
