Exciting day for Fountain Gate Secondary College and the Rugby Academy

We were visited by Minister for Sport John Eren, Minister for roads and Narre Warren North Luke Donellan, VRU president and Melbourne Rebels Chairman Tim North QC and many other distinguished guests including new rebels coach Dave Wessels and Wallaby and Rebel Sefa Naivalu.

Minister Eren announced the funding of $500,000 towards rugby pitch development for the academy to continue its progress for years to come. This is on top of $200,000 for the strength and conditioning facility upgrade.

Year 12 Celebration Day

Our Class of 2017 made the most of their last day by dressing up as characters almost as colourful as they are! We hope you all had a great day out together!

Year 12 exams are nearing completion. I would like to congratulate every Year 12 student and wish them a prosperous and successful future.

The buy back program has been extended to Friday 24th November. If you are interested, please return your copy of ‘The Arrival’ to the school library.
