Woodleigh was the place to be last Tuesday night, as students and parents took the opportunity to investigate their subject selection options for 2023.

Subject teachers were all on hand to discuss options and pathways and guide our students on their journey towards VCE and beyond.

After two years of being limited to delivering this information via Zoom, the opportunity to engage in face-to-face discussions was relished by students, staff and parents alike. If you have any questions you missed out on asking on the night, please see the relevant subject teachers as soon as possible!

It was Staff vs Students in the Woodleigh Gym at lunchtime today. Basketball was the Term 2 flavour, and, unfortunately (for the Students), they backed up their Term 1 loss and wore a second set of icy buckets. A delightful experience in the balmy June weather we're experiencing at present!

And while the Staff took home the chocolates, the fight against Motor Neurone Disease was today's winner, with all funds going towards the fight against this cruel disease.

Congratulations to all players and officials and to the student organising committee, led by Rose Illman Y12, who wore her very own bucket of icy goodness for her efforts! 🥶🥶🥶

I'm not one for the whole live, laugh, love thing... But dance like nobody's watching; I can catch that train.

And so, it would seem, can the students (and some of the staff and parents too) at Minimbah – for on Friday night, they had the hall absolutely jumping at the Minimbah SPACE DISCO!

Whether you're a nutbush fanatic, a macarena devotee, or just a freestyle shape-thrower, you would have found your place on the dancefloor.

Huge thanks and big props to our Minimbah PFG, for putting everything together and to the students for getting their groove on with such energy and abandon!

A game played in wonderful spirit, with great skills on display… and Woodleigh were the winners, can’t beat that!

Thank you, Mitch Tambo, for bringing your language and culture, songs, dance, humour and strong message of reconciliation to "the least boring school you've ever played," today.

Your music is a message, and your message is one delivered with warmth, openness, vulnerability and honesty. Having voices like yours guide us as we walk with Australia's First Nations people on a journey of reconciliation is a gift. We were very lucky to have you perform for us today.

It's Just Business, Pal.

Year 5 students at Minimbah and Penbank have been investigating 'How We Organise Ourselves' as their Term 2 Unit of Inquiry. As part of the unit, students worked hard to create small businesses, with products and designs developed from initial kernels of ideas through to the finished items.

Students, staff and parents were welcomed to peruse and purchase the many varied wares from the proud business owners, with a portion of the proceeds donated to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation.

Entrepreneurial spirit and endeavour at a young age? Sounds good to me!

During Reconciliation Week, Woodleigh students, staff and families come together to celebrate Australia's First Nations People, their teachings, history and our shared future.

This year we welcomed Stolen Generation Survivor and proud Boonwurrung, Mutti Mutti and Yorta Yorta woman, Eva Jo Edwards, to share her stories. Monica Weightman, a Murri woman from Townsville, sang songs and told tales across all our campuses, and, on Wednesday night, we launched Woodleigh's Reconciliation Action Plan. This document brings together all we do to further reconciliation across our three campuses and beyond and creates a roadmap for our future efforts. Year 11 student Nia Charlesworth spoke powerfully about her and her family's history and the significance of our school's commitment to reconciliation. There is a definite mood for change, and Woodleigh is proud of our commitment to reconciliation and shared understanding of First Nation's history, culture, teachings and practices.

Today is Nation Sorry Day.

It is a day for acknowledging the trauma and loss that continues to affect Indigenous communities, families and individuals, as a result of the wrongs done to Australia's First Nation's People.

Minimbah held their Reconciliation Week Assembly this morning, and we had Uncle Shane Clayton and his children, Lakeisha and Shane Jr from the Bunarong Land Council, welcome us onto country.

Woodleigh parent Brian Walker also spoke, sharing stories of his family's experience of the Stolen Generations.

National Reconciliation Week starts tomorrow, following the theme, Be Brave. Make Change. We look forward to sharing our reconciliation efforts throughout the coming week and at the Reconciliation Week Gathering next Wednesday, where we will launch Woodleigh's Reconciliation Action Plan.

More Cross Country!

This time it's coming from the Minimbah crew, who, once again, took home the Bayside District Primary Schools Sports Association Division Two Cross Country Championship.

Not to be cocky, but they should just call it the 'Mark Roden Perpetual Trophy' and be done with it!

Congratulations to the team for putting in the hard miles on the training track and doing such a great job representing Woodleigh!
