We are past the halfway point of the term and looking forward to the long weekend. I hope that you and your families can enjoy some quality moments over the next few days. I have been reflecting on the pace of school life during term time and it is certainly fast and filled with fantastic opportunities for the students. It is wonderful that we are blessed with the resources and staff to pursue so many different activities. Can I encourage you to thank a teacher or staff member for the many ways that they go above and beyond for the students?

This week alone we have hosted the Anglican Schools Corporation Annual Choral Festival which saw over 500 students from different schools come together to celebrate the universal language of music. Our staff facilitated and managed this event and delighted in the performances of our students. We have sent off 120 year 9 students on their first Duke of Edinburgh hike with college staff in attendance to guide and encourage their development as young men and women with character. We have had students represent in soccer, cross country and athletics – again, ably supported and encouraged by staff and parents. Year 10 have been out on work placement learning about the responsibilities and joys of being in the workforce. The teachers are also marking tasks, exams and writing reports at this time.

We are a busy community.

We are a vibrant community.

I continue to enjoy meeting you at the Parent Café on a Friday morning.

And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

Colossians 3:17
