One of the distinct privileges that I have in the role that I fulfil on behalf of the Association is to attend community events. Last week, it was great to be part of the energy that was the Primary Athletics Day. Despite the very warm weather, it was tremendous to see staff and parents rubbing shoulders in running this Athletics Day. Also, there are few things more enjoyable than being in the midst of the students when they are having so much fun at school. Thank you to all who were able to attend and assist. Your help is much appreciated.
On Thursday evening, we held our annual New Parents’ Dinner. This year, we had a progressive evening starting in the ELC, then moving to the Primary Gym for Dinner and finishing in the Secondary Science Building for dessert. As a College, we look to be authentic in our efforts to develop Christian schooling and have practice that mirrors our beliefs. To our way of thinking, this means that our Christian faith is to be evident across school practice rather than confined to one or two aspects of practice. Certainly, I find it very encouraging when I receive feedback from families that we are indeed doing this and I am very thankful for the comments on our College from our new families.
Please remember that next week, we have the first formal opportunity as a College to engage in Parent-Teacher or Parent-Student-Teacher Conferences. We’d love all parents to come along and discuss with us how we can assist you in the education of your children.
May you enjoy the long weekend.
