GVGS House Athletics Carnival


Please click here to download a copy of the 2015 Athletics Programme

The GVGS Athletics Carnival will be held on Thursday 19th March at McEwen Reserve, Shepparton. On this day, the Year 12's will be holding a BBQ and selling cold drinks to raise money for their 'Leavers Fund'. Students will also need to bring enough food and water for the day as there will be no tuckshop orders available.

We invite parents and friends to come along and help support students. The Programme of Events is available on the GVGS website, where approximate (can vary considerably!) event times can be accessed. Events commence at 9:40am and conclude at 2:45pm.

Please note that students must wear their House Sport uniforms on the day. Students can only compete in this uniform. School hats are also compulsory and are expected to be worn when not competing. Additional colours to embellish their House may be worn when at the Carnival (note that Denim or singlets are not allowed).

All students are to attend tutorial first thing in the morning (roll call), followed by their House Meeting, therefore no students are to go directly to McEwen Reserve.

Parents please note that no students are allowed to leave the venue to purchase food. We seek parental support by NOT providing take away food throughout the day. Additionally, all students are required to return to School after the Carnival. Parents should speak directly to their child’s Tutor if other arrangements are urgent.

We look forward to seeing many parents, friends and families sharing this happy occasion as a whole School Community.

See you there!

Mr Shane McDonald

House Sport Coordinator



Visiting Indonesian Students 2015

From March 15th to March 20th we will be hosting 5 students from Krista Mitra (Semarang) and 17 students from another of our sister schools in Indonesia; Bintang Mulia (Bandung). The visit to GVGS by students from these two schools is an annual event and provides a wonderful opportunity for the students from the three schools to interact.

On March 20th we have an additional ten students from a Muslim school in Surabaya staying with us from March 20th to March 26th.

For our GVGS students the additional benefit is to begin to develop a context for developing their Bahasa Indonesian language skills.

If families are in a position to have 1 or 2 students from our Indonesian sister schools stay for the week in March then please contact Leon McLeod (Deputy Principal) either by phone on 58218155 or email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it


International Exchange Programme

International Exchange Programme 2015

Year 10 students have the opportunity to apply for a place in the International Student Exchange Programme with schools in Scotland, England, Italy, USA and Canada. The students who are successful in their application are able to spend approximately 4 weeks at one of our partner schools from mid-November.  This will mean they will be away from school during our ECP Programme and will need to be prepared to complete any missed work either during their time away or when they return to Australia.

The students who are selected to participate in this programme are likely to be required to host their partner for a similar 4 weeks in either July/August this year or February next year. The estimated cost of the programme is $5000 although this is influenced by the value of the Australian Dollar and airfares.

Interested families are invited to attend an information session in the GVGS Library on Tuesday March 3rd commencing at 7.30pm.
