Principal's Blog

It is an exciting time as we come towards the end of the 2018 College year but there is still plenty happening with our Year 6 students visiting Canberra this week while our Year 12 Class of 2019 had their Retreat at Howman’s Gap earlier in the week.

End of Year Services

As communicated with our College Community, we have modified our 2018 End of Year Services and I would like to extend an invitation to all our College families to the following events next week:
Carols @ the College – Wednesday 5th December, starting at 5.30pm in Luther Hall with a free sausage sizzle afterwards  outside on the grass. This event will include an opportunity to acknowledge departing 2018 staff.
Primary Awards Service – Thursday 6th December, starting at 12noon in Luther Hall
Secondary Awards Service – Thursday 6th December, starting at 1.30pm in Luther Hall.

Parents & Friends 

I would like to acknowledge our Parents & Friends in 2018 as they continue to look for ways to support our College community. This year they have funded the following projects within the College:

  • Graduation Gowns for our Year 12 Students – our Year 12 Class of 2018 had the honour of wearing our new gowns for their Valedictory Service last Thursday.
  • SchoolTV – a new addition to the College website, SchoolTV is a new ongoing resource that is now available to our parents and guardians. Each edition will address a major topic with expert interviews, fact sheets, parent quiz, recommended apps, books and much more.
  • Music Stand Banners – these look great as our students perform in the College and wider community.
  • Water Bubblers – a number of modifications have been made to our water bubblers around the College to provide refrigerated, cold water for our students and staff.


There are a number of other supported projects that are still being finalised before the end of the 2018 College year.

Thanks to all our College families who have supported our Parents & Friends this year and I encourage your ongoing support into 2019 as they continue to plan for their ‘Twilight Fair’.
