On Monday afternoon, we held a whole school assembly marking our 35th Anniversary. Again, it was wonderful to be able to watch, listen, and
encourage our students as they displayed their gifts and gave thanks for this community. It is my hope that the celebrations of this year will help us to remember our vision for Christian schooling, and to be thankful to the Lord for the many blessings we enjoy.
Over past newsletters, I have made a few announcements about upcoming changes to our teaching staff. In summary, our teacher changes are as follows: Mr Brendan Elliget, who teaches Secondary Mathematics, is retiring at the end of this year; Mrs Janienne Woodbridge is taking early retirement as she considers some missional activities; and Miss Ellen Baker has completed a short-term Secondary teaching position. In 2018, we have three new teachers: Mrs Tammie Chester will work part-time in the Primary School; Mrs Olivia Williams will Coordinate the Trades Skills Centre and work as a member of the VCAL team; and Mrs Rosie Alley will work part-time as an Agriculture and Science teacher in the Secondary School. Please join with us in praying and thanking our leaving teachers, and in praying and welcoming our new teachers as they prepare to join our team in 2018.
As we enter the final four weeks of the College year, I hope that you are able to participate in our upcoming end of year events including our Presentation Evenings in early December.
