Fantastic news for our school community. We have approval for the initial funding of a Blackburn High School STEM Centre of Excellence. This funding was part of the Andrew’s Governments 1.1billion dollar building initiative for schools that was announced recently.
As part of the Music for Mateship project, asking musicians across Australia to simultaneously play the Last Post and Reveille at dawn on Anzac Day this year, Year 12 student Ben Ball honoured his great-grandfather Jack Giggins, who died fighting for Australia during World War II. Speaking to Age reporter Carolyn Webb (The Age, 22 April 2020) Ben said he played for neighbours who were not able to attend Anzac marches and services this year because of coronavirus restrictions.
