Scopus students shared presentations about Hebrew, Jewish beliefs, festivals and more along with a Dvar Torah by Principal, Rabbi James Kennard.

The aim of the program is to give students a better understanding of other people with different religious and cultural backgrounds to their own through interactive workshops and discussion groups.

Other schools participating in the Building Bridges Program include Caulfield Grammar (Wheelers Hill Campus), Donvale Christian College, Avila College, Aquinas College, Minaret College and Luther College.
