8:00 Musical Production - Danny & the Shacks


Danny & the Shacks 

Come along on this Biblically-inspired, Won’t-Bend-Won’t-Bow-Won’t-Burn Babylonian epic, recounting the adventures of Daniel ("Danny," as we call him in our 21st-century version of the story) and his bandmates, The Shacks (better known to you Bible scholars out there as Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego!). 

In our re-telling of the story, three young Hebrew men named Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, in conjunction with the prophet Daniel (of lions' den fame), have a band called Danny & the Shacks. They embark on a roller-coaster-thrill-ride of experiences as they encounter King Neb, his golden statue, some crazy Babylonians, the fiery furnace, and of course, the infamous lions den. Through it all, the powerful truth of God’s Word and the importance of being obedient and faithful to His teaching comes through loud and clear in a storyline so fantastic and faith affirming, it could only come from the Word of God.

The End is Near

Oh no!  The school year is nearly over!

Here's a wrap of what's going on around school as the year draws to a close.  Make sure you read carefully as there are instructions about where students need to be, when they need to be there and what they should be wearing etc.


December 8-15

Our secondary students have headed off to South Pacific Student Convention in Sydney.  It will no doubt be a great week of challenge, growth and fun.  Pray for their safety, good health, spiritual growth, and great performances.

2019 Prep Orientation

Welcome to our school!

On Friday, 16th November and Wednesday, 21st November we welcomed 11 of our 2019 Prep students for their orientation at our school.  Mrs Shayna Carter had a full morning of activities planned and each child was paired up with a buddy from our current ABCs classroom as well as a student from Gimmel, to show them around the school.  The children enjoyed learning a song, completing craft activities and getting to know each other in the classroom.  Our playground was a major hit!  The students were even able to enjoy a canteen lunch, slurp some slushies and finish off a frappe.  Mrs Cobden brought in her pet rabbit 'Cuddles', who was also a welcome guest in the classroom and certainly received many delighted cuddles.  

Our 2018 ABCs' students were also able to enjoy some orientation time as they made the big leap to the Aleph classroom, with Mrs Loris Tresize.  All in all, it was a very busy couple of days and we look forward to having our new Prep students with their families,  join us in February, 2019.

Green Dot Treat Roster

School will provide

Each week our students have opportunity to earn “Green Dot Treat.” When a student completes her goals (individualised classwork) she receives a green dot on her goal chart. Three green dots in the one week earns you green dot treat. This treat is handed out at lunchtime on the first day of the next school week.  


We ask that parents take it in turns to provide the treat. This could be some great home-cooking such as honey crackles, jelly slice, or some other family specialty. We understand when parents need to purchase something ready made but please be careful not to provide something laden with artificial colours and flavours -  no burger rings, twisties, cheezles etc. A plain chocolate frog or something similar is fine as it is after-all, a treat. Heavily processed foods though, with added colours and flavours, can have a very detrimental impact on many students. Feel free to call the school if you are unsure about what to provide.


Two families are rostered to supply the treats each week.  Parents will be notified by email and/or sms via parent paperwork.  indicating how many treats are needed (usually around 20 - 25).  We'll put a reminder on this page in each newsletter.  A complete roster can be downloaded below.  Please ensure the treats are delivered to Reception by 12 pm on the day you are rostered.

How to Center Your Family on Christ This Christmas

Scripture of the Month


Luke 1:46-55

 And Mary said,

“My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
for he has looked on the humble estate of his servant.
For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed;
for he who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is his name.
And his mercy is for those who fear him from generation to generation.
He has shown strength with his arm;he has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts;
he has brought down the mighty from their thrones and exalted those of humble estate;
he has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he has sent away empty.

He has helped his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy,

as he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his offspring forever.”
