School shows its age

This year marks the 95th birthday of Strathcona Baptist Girls Grammar School and our prep students were excited to celebrate our 95 Days of School festivities.

As the preps walked through the gates, they were greeted with lit up 95 numbers and were eager for a day of celebrations.

Our preps created portraits in art called When I Am 95 Years Old. My favourite part of teaching at Strathcona is seeing students develop self confidence to be creative and take initiative with learning, and those faces that are so proud because they’ve just achieved something amazing.
