No Place Like Home - Ben Simmons back at Box Hill
Last week, the talented teen suited up for his former school BHSSC for a practice match against Victoria University. "I played with a few of the guys from my past Year 9 group, it was good to play with them. We wanted to have fun and we wanted to win." Ben said. Ben has a year left of high school at Montverde in the US and is committed to play at Louisiana University from the end of next year.

Congratulations to our Senior Boys who were runners up in the Herald Sun Shield competition!!

Top Class 2014 
Congratulations to LEAH MILBURN-CLARK!
(Year 12 2013)

TOP CLASS DEMONSTRATES THE INNOVATION AND CREATIVITY OF THE NEXT GENERATION OF ACTORS AND THEATRE MAKERS.

Leah was selected to perform her DRAMA solo for the VCAA SEASON OF EXCELLENCE held at  the MELBOURNE RECITAL CENTRE on 30th APRIL.
Leah received an outstanding score for her performance in the  2013 OCTOBER VCAA PERFORMANCE EXAM and was one of only  27 students from across the state who made it to this stage.

It is also a credit to Leah that she was asked to present a short speech about the preparation and challenges of producing her Solo piece. She spoke insightfully and humorously about her process.  Leah was an inspiring example for the younger audience of Drama students.
