International students from Switzerland!
We are very lucky to have a number of international students from Switzerland join our College family. Nicole and Alexandra are pictured here enjoying the spirit of our Athletics Carnival.
Alexandra joined us last year in Year 11 and will graduate at the end of this year. Nicole came on a 6 month program and has now just returned to Switzerland. "Ms Holmes, I would like to thank you and the school that you have given me the opportunity to be a part of your college family for a semester. I really enjoyed my stay, not just because all the students were such nice and lovely people, but also all the teachers were so friendly and gave me a comfortable feeling to be in their classes. I hope all of you are going to have a great second semester! Of course, I'm a bit sad not to be there for the rest of this year, but I'm sure my new friends will tell me what's happening at the school."

International Department Term 3 Round Up
It's been an exciting start to Term Three in our International Department at Saint Stephen's College. We have welcomed a little over 100 students from overseas on short term programmes! This taste of Saint Stephen's is a great way for our staff and students to meet new friends and develop awareness of other cultures (plus show off our amazing College to our visitors too!).
Thank you to the many students who have been great buddies and shown our visitors what it is like to be a Saint Stephen's student! The feedback has been tremendous. Good luck to all of the student buddies for the upcoming theme park tickets draw on assembly!Read more »
Prep to Year 2 Blokes, Books and Barbeque Evening
The Prep to Year 2 cohorts hosted the annual “Blokes, Books and Barbeque Evening”. So many children came to school with their dads or special “bloke” to enjoy some quality time, participate in literacy activities and share a delicious barbeque together. The children were very excited to be able to show off all of the wonderful work that they have been doing in their classrooms, and it was a great opportunity for them to do some reading with their dad or special bloke, which is always the main focus of the evening.
For some ‘blokes’, this is one of the few opportunities they have to come and see what is happening in the classroom and once stories were shared, activities completed and classroom tours were conducted by the children, everyone made their way out to the playground for a delicious sausage sizzle, cold drink, play, and chat!Read more »

National Literacy and Numeracy Week is an annual event run by the Australian Government to highlight the importance of literacy and numeracy skills for all children.
The week aims to recognise the achievements of students and the work of teachers, parents and members of the community who support young people to develop stronger literacy and numeracy skills. To mark this important week, the students in the Foundations Programme were very lucky to have two Junior Titans players, Sam Gee and Matt Beddow, come to read with them.Read more »
