130 YEARS OF EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATION

Girton Grammar School Bendigo strives for excellence both in academic and co-academic areas of education in a Christian, caring environment. When Girton was re-founded in 1992-1993 by Mr John Higgs, The Friends of Girton assisted by the founding Headmaster, Mr Clayton Jones, the Deputy Head, Mrs MacCulloch, and many others, it was a true effort of a community working together to produce something special. Over the past twenty years, many students, staff, parents and others from the region have contributed mightily to the success of the School. We encourage everyone – staff, parents and students to work together as a community to achieve the Mission and to support and live the Values of the School.

Matthew F. Maruff- Headmaster

Energy Breakthrough

A years worth of hard work for our students and staff was put to the test this weekend in our final event for the year, the RACV Maryborough event. Over a period of 4 days our amazing students presented to judges about Girton’s EB program and environmental sustainability, participated in scrutineering programs to check the safety of their vehicles, and participated in high intellect conversations about the design and construction of their trikes. In addition to that they raced for 24 Hours straight in a relay-style event! The weather conditions were horrific and the race conditions the most challenging and toughest we have faced. Our students competed with dignity, wonderful team spirit and an excellent competitive spirit in a challenging race. Our students and trikes are certainly race battered and bruised but they had a wonderful time! Team ‘Inception’ finished first in its Single Power Source category for the third year running. They too had an extremely difficult race modifying fuel injection systems, changing engines etc- by the end of the race all that was left to replace were tyres! All other spare parts used! Watching this team in operation is breathtaking. Our HPV teams did a wonderful job against very adverse conditions! Team ...
