Our College community was both shocked and saddened to learn of the tragic accident involving former student Casey Tutungi (graduated 2003) whilst playing football. This accident has resulted in Casey being diagnosed with quadriplegia.
Since this news it has been incredible to see the broad community support and make such a generous effort to raise funds for Casey and his family.
Our College has committed our support also and each campus will be undertaking various efforts to raise money to support the appeal established for Casey.
Casey is currently receiving rehabilitation support at Royal Talbot Rehabilitation Centre in Melbourne.
I know many of Casey's Christian College friends and his former teachers have been shocked by this tragic event and want to offer assistance and support for Casey and his family.
The Bible encourages us to,
‘Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. —’
This is just another way of saying, ‘Love your neighbour as yourself!’ He now asks us to live redemptively, in practical ways, toward those around us. More than just praying, or asking what we can do to help, we are called to serve, minister and assist others who are burdened.
I encourage you all to join our students, staff and I, along with the many others throughout our community, in praying for and supporting Casey through the opportunities available through our College or in the wider community.
