Students at Ararat College have settled into classes as the new year of schooling has begun. 64 Year 7 students from Buangor, Ararat and Moyston are attending the College this year. The year began with some very hot weather but luckily has started to cool down.
The school year began on Wednesday the 29th of January with the Year 7 students beginning their secondary school journey and the Year 12’s beginning their final year. All other students began on the 30th after a well-earned break.
All students were officially welcomed back with a whole school assembly. Principal Ellie McDougall introduced the new mobile phone policy in place throughout all government schools this year and encouraged all students to have a good start to the term. House activities are already underway with house basketball games currently being played at lunchtimes.
