AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Red Hill Consolidated School

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Red Hill Consolidated School was established to replace eight small rural schools in the district. RHCS is located approximately 58 kilometres SE of Melbourne, in the central area of the Mornington Peninsula within a picturesque rural setting of 5.9 hectares of land. Originally RHCS provided schooling for years 1-10, but now provides a comprehensive Prep-6 curriculum for students in the district. As Red Hill has no actual township, it caters for children from a wide radius, including Flinders, Main Ridge, Merricks, Merricks North, Point Leo and Shoreham.

There is a Red Hill school in Singapore, and apparently schools in Singapore like to link up with schools with the same name from overseas.
