Last Sunday, we supported our annual Victory Sunday Service in Luther Hall with St John’s Lutheran Parish and Victory Lutheran College communities worshipping together. This is an important annual event supporting the ongoing relationship and connection between the Parish and College.

After the Service, I was blessed to take a small group of Parish members on a College tour and discuss our day-to-day College life with our students, parents/carers and staff.

Thanks to Pastor Graeme Zweck and Chaplain Mr Andrew Dewhirst for their support in their preparation and planning.

With the construction of a new church for the Wodonga Parish at the College commencing soon, we look forward to our communities worshipping together more regularly and strengthening of ministry partnership of the Parish and College.

Australian Education Awards 2022

Victory is thrilled to announce it is a proud 2022 finalist in the Australian Education Awards in the Regional School of the Year category. The College joins seven other finalist schools from across Australia that have received an Excellence Award.

The Regional School of the Year Award recognises the most outstanding school in a regional or rural area in Australia based on the following criteria:

  • Consistently high standards of teaching and learning
  • Academic and other achievements during the 2021 school year
  • Rigorous professional learning to improve teaching and curriculum delivery
  • Strong communication links with students, parents, teachers and the wider community
  • Effective management of facilities, finances and human resources
  • Demonstrated commitment to innovation and continuous improvement.

Throughout all the challenges of COVID, extended periods of Remote Learning, border restrictions and everything else that we faced as a community, we can be proud of what we have accomplished together. To be a finalist is a wonderful recognition of the combined achievements of our College’s students, staff and community in 2021.

We now await the announcement of the winner of the Regional School of the Year at the Awards ceremony in Darling Harbour in August.

Yours in Christ,

Mr John Thompson
