Freyja Wins Best on Ground
The BJFL ( Bendigo Junior Football League) Headspace Round, was held at the QEO on Sunday 14th July.
Freyja played for the Eaglehawk Under 18 girls team, against Golden Square. Eagle-hawk went down, not sure of the score, but they lost by about 10 goals.

Lester Foods Kitchen Garden Update
The build of the garden is now almost complete with the main structure of the garden in place and a base of nutrient rich straw and fertilisers having been applied in the past week as well.
The beds will be filled within the coming weeks with soil and work is already underway propagating plants to be transplanted into the beds. Students should begin seeing the benefits of the hard work by Term 4, with interaction in the garden beginning on a trial basis then and should be implemented into the classes fully by the beginning of Term 1, 2020!
Donations of any plants are always welcome, with cuttings and seeds always welcome to be dropped off at the General Office or sent with students to Mr Wright in Walker Senior or Lester Foods!
