Our First 2020 Whole School Assembly


Students in Year 1 - 9 enjoyed a varied and entertaining assembly yesterday. Whilst not entirely the whole school, as Prep children will join us in the March whole school assembly, the stadium was very full with students, staff and the many families that enjoy coming to our assemblies.

The agenda for assembly was very full too. Beginning with our national anthem and acknowledgement of country, the Featherbrook College Award followed and was presented by our friends and sponsors at Century 21 Real Estate Point Cook. Warren and Ranjila presented the prestigious award to 2 of our students who had been deemed by their teachers as worthy of the acknowledgement, by demonstrating our school values of Respect, Safety, Collaboration and High Expectations, time and again without exception.

Students also heard from Werribee River Association members John and Liam who passionately explained the work they do as volunteers to keep our local Werribee River free from litter so that the wildlife and health of the river is supported. John and Liam shared with the students, the ways in which they can contribute to preserving our waterways so animals such as the platypus are able to thrive and live free from plastics and other harmful litter. The work we do at Featherbrook College through our nude food promotion was applauded by our visitors. We should be proud of our endeavour to be active contributors to a more sustainable world, by acting in our local space.

The assembly audience was very fortunate to hear a wonderful medley of tunes played by 2 of our Year 9 students on keyboards. Both John and Andrew have been learning the piano for a number of years and have undertaken exams to progress their levels and skill development. The audience was captured by the range of melodies that the 2 students has arranged and practiced. We have very talented students at Featherbrook College and John and Andrew are 2 very talented musicians.
