The end of the year is filled with activity as teachers and students finalise their academic
year in a variety of ways. The diversity within the College is quite amazing! This year’s
Welcome Day on Wednesday saw students involved in a range of transition activities,
meeting next year’s teachers and visiting new classrooms. Our students were recognized
as being exemplary in the way they welcomed our new students who were visiting just
for the day! We have also had our Year 11 ATAR students back on campus after their
exams to review their results and to prepare for Year 12 and the Year 7 classes hosting a
Shark Tank competition for their Economics project. The Primary classes have finished
with a very successful Market Day and the Year 10 students are currently attending their
Service Camp at a local campsite.
So much of what goes on in the College, while meeting educational outcomes, is also able
to meet our aim of building character in our students. The Market Day and the Service
Camp are two great examples. Both of these major activities are focused on benefiting
others and they both require a lot of work. It’s the message that Paul wrote to the Romans
about having our minds renewed, and not putting ourselves first – our students are living
examples of this message as they serve our community.
