News | Ivanhoe Girls' Grammar School

Our aim as a School is to enable all our girls to achieve their personal best and to perform even more highly than might be expected. Quite often we hear about girls’ academic achievements, but equally important are the achievements made by our students who excel in the arts.

We are extremely proud of Anna Qi and Audrey Csuotros who have both been selected to perform solo, unaccompanied works in the Top Class Music program as part of the VCE Season of Excellence 2016.

One of the key focus areas at Ivanhoe Girls’ is innovation. Helping students develop their creative skills and encouraging them to have confidence in their decision-making skills will see our girls become the entrepreneurs of the future. While this is an area we continue to review and develop in both the academic and wider co-curricular programs of the School, we currently offer our girls opportunities to learn and practice these skills in a number of environments already.

Across the world, countries, states, cities and schools are attempting to shift the quality of learning and school leadership to better address the changing workforce and community needs in the 21st century. Schools in particular are aiming to answer the questions around: What does it look like when schools develop learning and teaching that support “learning that matters”? And what does leadership look like in schools that focus on “learning that matters”?

Macbeth, one of Shakespeare’s most well known tragedies, takes the audience on a voyage through political intrigue, witchcraft and prophecy whilst provoking interesting questions about ambition, fate and justice. It is the tragic story of a man not absolutely or eminently good or wise, but highly renowned and prosperous, who is brought to disaster not by sheer depravity but by some error or frailty.
