From the Principal

Early Learning Centre

Campbell House News

It has been wonderful to welcome our youngest learners and their families back to the Early Learning Centre this week after the Spring break.


What a Wonderful World

Stemming from the children’s recent inquiries regarding world travel destinations and the diversity of global languages, a new imaginative play area has been developed in collaboration with the children.


Junior School

Barbreck News

After what we hope was a refreshing and relaxing Term 3 holiday, we warmly welcome all Barbreck students and their families to the final term of the 2018 school year.


Director's Insights

Food and Mood

Wednesday 10 October marked World Mental Health Day. This year’s theme ‘Do You See What I See?’ challenges perceptions about mental illness in Australia and encourages everyone to look at mental health in a more positive light.


School News

As the host school for the Debaters’ Association of Victoria (DAV) this year, we were pleased to welcome over 70 students from a range of schools in the Toorak region to compete in the Junior Secondary Program (or Junior Debating) in Term 3.
