There's a festival happening at the Upwey High School (1451 Burwood Highway, Upwey; (03) 9754 2838) on Saturday the 14th of March from midday to 5pm. Established in 1937, the high school is located in the Dandenong ranges, 40kms east of the city.

A free volleyball coaching clinic, for all primary school students 7 to 13 years old from the Dandenong ranges area, will take place in the school stadium from 11am to midday. Featuring elite level coaches, this clinic caters to players from beginners, those just trying out the game, to regular players. An exhibition game with local high schools will take place with a sausage sizzle and refreshments available.

You will be serenaded from 1pm to 5pm by a number of bands, to showcase the musical talent of the high school and surrounding community. There'll be a number of stages around the school, showcasing 'Scott got Groove and the Groovettes', the 'Tecoma Primary School Choir', 'UHS Concert Band', 'UHS Stage Band', 'Dinosaurs in Chemistry', and Our Last Word.
