From the School Captains

This week I want to talk about having a strong relationship with Christ and how it can be achieved. By no means am I qualified enough to write about having a faultless relationship with Christ. I too struggle at times to truly connect with God and actually listen to what He is trying to say to me. I too sometimes forget to read my bible for days on end, or forget to rely on him when times are good, thinking I am enough and I have everything under control. I know I don’t have everything under control but the Lord does. Over the years, and the multiple times I have failed to connect with Him, I have realised that we maybe distance from him, but God is always, I mean it, ALWAYS right beside us, just waiting on us with open arms, to open our eyes and break the wall we have created, and return back to him. It is up to us, to create the bond. Whether it is through prayer, reading the bible, going to bible study with friends, going to Church or even spending time in nature admiring God’s creation, it’s different for everyone. We all don’t fit in a box, so we have to find what works for us. But the bottom line is, we all have to put in time and effort if we ever want to have a relationship with the Lord. It is a slow and steady process, but the rewards are so sweet, it is most definitely worth it. So I encourage to pick up your bible, go out to your nearest park and try and reconnect with God, and see the difference.

 

This week I encourage you to hold Philippians 4:6-7 close to your heart, and try and live by these words.

 

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

ICAS Tests

ICAS is an independent, skills-based assessment program which recognises and rewards student achievement. ICAS is unique, being the most comprehensive generally available suite of academic assessments for primary and secondary school students. The assessments comprise eight Digital Technologies tests, eleven English tests, eleven Maths tests, eleven Science tests, six Spelling tests and ten Writing tests.

 

Heritage College will again be offering to administer these tests to students and families who choose to participate. The tests are voluntary, each incurring a cost to the family and will be scheduled on specific dates, as outlined below. If you would like your child to participate in one or more tests, please request a payment form from Tam (NWS) or Venitta (OC) and pay the associated costs.

 

More information is available on their website:  https://www.eaa.unsw.edu.au/icas/about.

Year 10 SEISS Basketball

Tuesday, 6th March saw our Year 10 students take on our fellow SEISS schools in a basketball round robin. It was an action packed day with teams on both sides digging deep and giving their best. The female team deserve particular commendations for their steely eyed perseverance, for while the other teams rotated breathless players off the court, our five girls continued to play for the entirety of the day, with little to no break to speak of. Their efforts were rewarded with a shot at bronze.

 

The boys team fared even better. Each match was as close as it was well played. Through a mixture of teamwork, skill, and strategy we clawed our way into second position for the final match. From there what can only be called an intense match followed. Our Opponents were worthy, and the match, balancing upon several precarious free throws, slipped into overtime. It was here that the gentlemen kept their cool, clawing a solid handful points ahead in the minutes that followed, while our opposition cracked under the pressure. Congratulations to the Year 10 boys on a Heritage Victory!
