Australian company features student's designs

Artwork by talented Southern River College student Portia Reid will be soon be featured on coffee cups and other merchandise produced by leading Australian company Loop Upcycle.

The company partnered with Wirrpanda Foundation's Deadly Sista Girlz (DSG) program earlier this year to source suitable designs for use with their Vegware range of colouring books, compostable coffee cups and biodegradable packaging.

DSG mentor Stacey Mourish sent the company designs from students Joella Flanagan, Tiniko Clements, Portia Read and Isabella Indich and they were very impressed. They awarded all the students prizes during a recent morning tea event where they also announced that they would be printing Portia’s design on their Vegware product line.

Given that Virgin Airlines is a major client of Loop Upcycle, Portia’s design will now have a global audience. This is an incredible accolade and we are incredibly proud of Portia’s achievement. ... See MoreSee Less

Farewell Friendly

Our Year 12s will be graduating soon and as a tribute to the senior boys who have played basketball throughout their years at Southern River College, Ms Tirkot arranged a “Farewell Friendly Game” against the seniors from Thornlie Senior High School.

And what a game it was! Both teams gave it their all and showed skill and stamina on the court. Half time saw Southern River up by 5 points but Thornlie fought back and right up until the end it could have been anyone’s game. With ten seconds left on the clock, with everyone on the edge of their seats, Southern River came through, securing a vital rebound and taking the game by 1 point!

It was a great game to finish on. Congratulations to our team and well done to Adam Cumming and Matt Magbanua who both scored double digits in the game and were named most valuable players.

The cheering and support from the students, parents and staff was incredible, particularly in the final tense moments of the game.

We would like to thank Thornlie for their continued support with our basketball match ups and look forward to scheduling a match for the junior team to end 2018.

It has been a journey watching the senior team develop as individuals and players and they will be dearly missed on and off the courts at Southern River College. We wish them all the best for their future endeavours. ... See MoreSee Less
