Together We Strive
On Sunday, Nov 19th, 37 secondary students and 4 staff members boarded a Virgin aircraft and headed off to Canberra to take in the many sights and attractions. We were met by Larry, our joke telling coach driver who stayed with us for the week; keeping us on schedule, accessing a few ’extra special’ places as a bonus to our trip and regailing us with stories and facts about Canberra each day. We were accommodated at the Canberra Student Lodge where students and Mr Gerrard and Mr Garner shared dorm style rooms. Mrs Garner and Miss Hibbit had the luxury of the ‘staff quarters’ (aka the device charging and medication room).
"Reflecting our motto, TOGETHER WE STRIVE, Dowerin District High School students, parents, staff and the wider community unite to give our students the opportunity to be the best they can be academically whilst maintaining and developing social and emotional wellbeing.
