For several years now, Kilvington Grammar School has been a proud sponsor of the Melbourne Press Club and students are regularly invited to attend events by Principal Jon Charlton.
The school holidays are nearly here and we are all looking forward to a well-earned break, however Melbourne is a great place for kids activities and we’ve picked some of the best of what’s on this July.
When students start secondary school they are usually very positive and optimistic about school. Then things can start to get harder, a bit more challenging, maybe they get a bad mark and become discouraged, or maybe their friends start to influence their attitude. Some students are able to overcome these challenges, while others let it affect their attitude and application to school.
