What an exciting Term 3 it has been at Lowther Hall! As the Term draws to a close today, we farewell our students heading off on the France and Japan Study Tours, and wish our Year 9 girls all the best as they hike in the Grampians for their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award. We hope all our students enjoy a restful break, see you in Term 4!
