As we celebrated International Women’s Day this week on Tuesday, I shared with the Senior School girls some of the reasons that I believe it is important for them to develop a thoughtful approach to matters such as gender equality and the role of women.

The Lowther Hall uniform has seen many changes and evolutions since our school began 96 years ago. The uniform is an important means by which our student community can feel connected to each other and it fosters a sense of belonging.

We are flying the French flag at the front of Lowther Hall this week in celebration of the arrival of students from our sister school in France! The girls and boys are currently being hosted by Senior School families and their visit is providing wonderful opportunities for our girls to practise their French!

​This week I am proud to announce that Lowther Hall will be partnering with St Paul’s Cathedral in Melbourne to provide the first girls’ cathedral choir in the southern hemisphere. The choir will be comprised of 18 girls from across Years 4 to 10, who will be selected by audition.

2016 is off to a flying start at Lowther Hall! Welcome back to all of our returning families and a special welcome to all of the families who are new this year. The girls have embraced the new year with confidence and enthusiasm and it has been lovely to see their excitement.

A new school year has begun and we welcome back today our students from Years 1 to 12. We look forward to a happy and successful 2016 school year with you!
