From the School Captains

Greetings to all! I’m sure that everyone is excited that school holidays are just around the corner. This week's value is Service and here’s what the Bible has to say about it.

 

Matthew 20:27,28 “...and whoever wants to be first must be your slave—just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

 

In this verse, it tells us that Jesus came to earth to not be served, but to serve others, so while you are at school, home, work or anywhere else, don’t wait to be served, but serve others. Just like Jesus did when the disciples didn’t wash his feet. He didn’t wait to be served, he went ahead and serve the disciples by washing their feet.

 

This account of Jesus’ life, gives us an example of how we should serve and not wait to be served. So how should we show service? In 1 Peter 4:10, it says “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” We should use whatever gifts we have to show service in various forms.

 

So if you have a gift or a great talent, and you see an opportunity to show service, don’t miss it.

Serena represents Team Heritage!

Congratulations to Serena (Year 6) for being the first ever Heritage College student to qualify for the School Sports Victoria (SSV) Regional Championships of Cross Country. 

 

On Thursday, 21 June she competed in the Southern Metropolitan Regional Championships and placed a credible 60th in her 11 years age group. Serena ran her 3km race in 13:42, coming in 2:51 after the winner who ran a blistering race.

 

Many kilometres of training goes in to running Cross Country and we congratulate Serena for displaying excellence and resilience as she persisted through three stages of qualifying to reach Regionals this year.

Year 1WV Enjoying Bible Studies with Pr Lagi

 

Start Smart Incursion

Last Thursday students from Years 1 to 6 had the pleasure of learning about money from a “Couch Cash” from Commonwealth Bank[1] .

 

Andy was entertaining and kept the students laughing as he taught the students lots of different things.  He shared the slogan “Spend some on you and save some too!”

 

Year 3’s reviewed the Australian coins and notes and also learned what EFTPOS means (quiz your child to see if they remember) and how it works.

 

Students also worked in groups to perform chores to earn money and then they had to decide which shop - Big Brand, Budget Scooters or Just Scoot, they could buy their scooter from. Students had to make choices based on price and time of delivery.

Australian Playhouse Visit

On May 24th, the Secondary Language Department arranged for a team of actors from the Australian Playhouse to visit the Officer Campus and perform for all students in Year 7-10. We were kept laughing by an informative presentation called “Shakespeare: As You Write It” through which the actors showed students some of the techniques used by Shakespeare when he wrote his famous plays.

 

Taking votes from the students for setting, character traits and more, the team remade the Disney classing ‘The Lion King’ into a tragic play in which Simba couldn’t wait to be the world’s greatest dancer, and Scar, jealous of his skills, tried to take him out of the competition. Along the way we learned about soliloquies, iambic pentameter, and what makes the genre of tragedy… tragic.

 

After the show was over, the team stopped to chat with anyone who was interested in drama and acting, showing us how the sets and props were made. Year 7 in particular enjoyed testing out the costumes. Don’t worry parents; the swords are definitely rubber!

Congratulations!

Well done to all Year 10, 11 and 12 students on the completion of your mid-year examinations! This has included the first of the official VCE examinations, the General Achievement Test, or GAT, last Wednesday.

 

It’s been a huge effort on your part, and we want to thank you for the hours of study and preparation you have put in. Thanks as well to all the parents who tirelessly support our students in their learning and assessment.

Pyjama Day!

Students from Prep to Year 5 at OCP arrived to school on Tuesday in their Pyjamas! Everyone had a wonderful day, relaxing in their slippers as they worked, snug as a bug in their dressing gowns. Thank you to all students who also made a generous donation towards the Year 12 Nepal Mission Trip. Your money will go towards a school in Nepal, helping Nepalese students in their learning journey.
