Strong Finish in Secondary

There's a lot on in the last week of term: Rocket League, Standing Up for Little Lives, subject selections, VET students finishing off work… it's a strong finish that makes the holiday rest well-deserved.

What’s happening in the last week? There’s so much going on as we head to a strong finish! Here’s a snapshot:

- Students are finishing up their term’s learning and preparing for a well-earned rest over the holidays.

- Our House Competition is kicking into top gear with the Grand Final of our Rocket League competition on Wednesday night. Go Stanway, Carey, Judson and Taylor!

- Our Year 8-11 students are finalising their subject selections for next year.

- Little Lives Week is in full swing with students raising much needed funds for Rehoboth Children’s Home in the Philippines. Already over $7000! Donate here:

- Some of our Year 12 VET students are on campus during the week for compulsory assessments in Music and Furniture Making.

- Tuesday night was our 1:1 Digital Learning Parent Information Night for 2021’s Year 7 & 10 students. How exciting!

- Staff are preparing the plan for students to begin a staged return to campus in Term 4.

- Our Year 12s are working hard to prepare for trial exams in the school holidays and readying themselves for the final leg of their journey.

- Interim reports are being printed and posted to parents.

Thank you to all parents, guardians and friends who have kept us in your prayers as we’ve travelled through another term of (mostly) remote learning. We are grateful for God’s enabling grace which has kept staff and students learning and growing together through this tough season. Can’t wait to see our students in person in Term 4! We pray that families will find some true times of rest and refreshment over the break.
