What a busy and eventful term we have just completed. Term 1 is always filled with many new experiences and opportunities for our students. New classes, classrooms and teachers, new programs and initiatives, many camps have taken place and two of our major sporting carnivals, swimming and athletics have been conducted.

Spending time with students and staff.

Last week I had the privilege to meet with the new staff who have joined us this year. It is such a joy to see the enthusiasm and connections that our new colleagues are already making in our community.

I have also held a series of lunches with students this term from the Bellarine and Highton campuses as well as the Senior School. These informal chats over lunch provide me with a valuable insight into the student’s reflections about their learning experiences at Christian College. As a result of the success of these lunches I am hoping to offer more of these throughout the year. I will be asking teachers to recommend students who are doing “Good Work” around the campuses, for these events.

Leading The Learning.

Each week our Vice Principal Scott Elliss and I meet with the Heads of Campus to discuss the leadership across our campuses. Working closely with these dedicated and highly capable educators is a real joy. I am so pleased with the energy they bring to the work they undertake at their respective campuses.

This year we have had the welcomed addition of Mr Rick Geall as our 'Executive Director of Teaching and Learning'. It is fair to say that Mr Geall has hit the ground running and is already making a considerable impact around the campuses. One of his main areas of focus has been to make meaningful connections with the staff and to assist them to maximise the benefits of the many initiatives that have been introduced in our Educational Framework in recent years. I am excited about the future developments that will follow as a result. Please keep the leaders of your campuses in your prayers.

This year I am continuing the work that I have been doing with the Harvard Graduate School of Education, Project Zero team. Part of this work is to refine and further develop the strategic direction that we are taking in providing, 'The Learning That Matters', for our students. This process involves participation from the College leadership team and will shortly be expanded to include our wider staff. Last week we held a productive day deepening our understanding of this important work as we seek to provide the very best learning experiences and opportunities for our students. 

Easter Reflections.

As the Easter weekend marks the beginning of the term break, I wish to invite us all to be mindful of the sacrifice that our Lord Jesus Christ made, to set us free from our sin and to bring us into a right relationship with our Heavenly Father.

Let us remind ourselves:

Firstly, He died that we might be forgiven.

Secondly, He died to make us new.

Thirdly, Jesus died so 'that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.'

I wish you an Easter break of reflection, quality family time and safe travels.

I look forward to welcoming all of the students back next term at our Commencement Assemblies, which will give us a wonderful opportunity to congratulate past student, Jakara Anthony following her recent success at the Winter Olympics in South Korea. We are also looking forward to welcoming our Musicians back from Hawaii and hearing all about their travels and performances.

Dear Parents,

 

It is hard to believe we have just completed our very first term together at our new Surf Coast Campus. There have been so many highlights and moments of joy shared between our staff, families and our prep students.

 

This term our Prep students have settled into school life with ease.  They have thoroughly embraced all that has been presented to them, and it is exciting to watch them grow and develop as learners. It’s with a sense of expectation we look forward to next term in anticipation of all of the fun and learning that our Prep students will participate in.

 

I would like to extend my sincere thanks and gratitude to you all for your ongoing support of the staff and the learning at our campus.

 

This Easter may we be blessed with love, life and happiness and may we be touched by the true meaning of Easter.

 

John 3:16 16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

 

God Bless you all

Debbie

Deputy Head of Senior School

Thank you for partnering with us to provide some exceptional opportunities for our students throughout Term 1. We have been delighted to see many new programs implemented, and the joyfulness our students have found in their engagement. It has been heartening to observe our Year 10 students complete their first Term here at Senior School; watching them develop in confidence and resilience is a true blessing.  We also acknowledge our staff and students who are currently participating in overseas experiences, our Year 11 students in Vietnam and our Senior Music Ensembles touring in Hawaii.  We pray for their safe return and we look forward to sharing in the stories, experiences and inspirations they will return with.  Term 2 resumes on Tuesday 17th April with a Commencement Assembly at the SAC at the Highton campus.  Students should go straight to the Highton Campus for an 8.50 am start.  They will then walk back to Senior School with teaching staff after this assembly. 

Term 2  promises to yield many more wonderful opportunities to extend and engage our students.  We especially look forward to community events such as the production of Alice in Wonderland and the House Music Carnival in May.  Two weeks into Term 2 will begin the compulsory wearing of the winter uniform.  If you need to visti the the Uniform shop the times are listed in the Vine.

Today, students and staff were fortunate to enjoy an Easter service.  Our guest speaker Tracey Davies from the Salvation Army shared her thoughts on the theme of transformation. Specifically how Easter shows us God's power to transform with Jesus’ journey of death to life. Supporting our service, and Tracey’s message, was a drama performance by students which explored the perspectives of the onlookers at Christs’ crucifixion and how this event transformed them. We were also grateful for the musical talents of the Senior Acoustic Ensemble who gifted us with several musical numbers.  As we approach this miracle of Easter, the resurrection of Jesus and the importance of this in our lives, today’s service was a wonderful starting point to frame our thinking and preparation for the days ahead.

At this blessed time, we wish all of our families a wonderful and safe holiday break and an Easter period reflecting on the amazing love and hope our Lord has offered us through the sacrifice of His son, Jesus. A love that overcomes, withstands and redeems. A hope that promises, renews and inspires. May you know the Lord’s peace and light as you celebrate Easter.

Term 1 has been incredibly rich in providing so many amazing learning experiences for our students.

New friendships have been forged, new skills have been learned and together we have made a wonderful start to the year. I pray that you enjoy a restful break with family and friends and may this Easter remind us all of God’s never-ending love for each one of us. John 3:16 says for God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 

I wish to take this opportunity to wish Mr Nick Ward well as he takes extended leave for the first 3 weeks of Term 2. Mr Ward and his family are excited about the arrival of their second child during this time. Mr Bernie Murnane will replace Nick during this time of leave. Bernie is a highly eperienced educator and former Deputy Head of Campus at Middle School Highton. 

I look forward to welcoming you back for Term 2 on Tuesday, April 17th.

Dear Parents and guardians,

It is hard to believe that I am writing our end of term article as I am sure I was just writing to welcome you to our wonderful Junior School! It has been a joy and privilege to journey with you in term one and especially to see the way our Preps and new students have settled into being part of the fabric of our College community. Term One is a vitally important time in establishing relationships of students and staff and staff and parents. In developing this partnership I want to encourage families to continue to be in regular contact with homeroom teachers working together to support our children.

Reflecting on the term we have had an exciting start to the year with our Welcome, Leaders Induction and Bible Presentation services, Family Picnic and Open Day, Prep Parents'Morning tea and Bush Prep program, Year 3 Wonka Day and Aquarium excursion, Year 4 swimming program and House Athletics at Middle School, Year 4 Australian History Incursion, Genius Hour Celebrations in Year 1 investigating Chemical Science through a variety of experiments and Genius Hour Celebrations in Year 2 investigating Biological Sciences through creating Invertebrates, and our Junior School Easter Bonnet Parade where we were joined by Williams House children and students, staff and families from our Surfcoast Campus.

Weekly we celebrate the Learning that Matters in our Vine and I encourage you to refer to the Vine to discover information relating to not only the special events and operations at the Junior School Campus but also to the engaging environment we share with our students. I would also encourage you to keep a regular check of the parent portal and College calendar, as these are continually updated with new information. If you have any concerns with regard to access of these online facilities please do not hesitate to let us know so that we can organize for our IT Technician, Sascha Veldhuis, to assist you.

Just a reminder as per last week’s Vine that our Junior School students finish their school day at 2.30pm today. Students will resume for Term 2 on Tuesday, 17th of April. On this day we will have a special commencement service for students to mark the beginning of Term 2 after recess at 11.30am.

As we enter this time of Easter reflection and celebration I wish you all a joyful, safe and blessed Easter time and would like to share with you the scripture from John 3:16 ‘For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.’

God Bless

Thank you for your support and for partnering with us to provide some wonderful learning opportunities for our students throughout Term 1. I have been delighted to see many new initiatives implemented and the joy our students have found in their personal participation. It has been encouraging to see our Year 5 students complete their first Term here at Middle School, transitioning and participating with confidence and resilience! Only 19 terms remaining for them :)

I wish all of our families a wonderful holiday break and blessed Easter. This is a pertinent time for us all to stop, be still and reflect on the amazing love and hope our Lord has offered us through the sacrifice of His son, Jesus. This is a love that we have freely available to us, a love that overcomes, endures and redeems. A hope that promises, restores and inspires. May you know the Lord’s peace and light as you celebrate Easter.

Students and staff were fortunate today to enjoy an Easter service, with Mr Andy Davies sharing a powerfully moving, yet simple message, 'Choose me?'. I certainly encourage you to take a moment leading into Easter, to talk about this with your young person, allowing them to share their perspective and thought towards this 'eternally' impacting question.

As we approach the miracle of Easter, the resurrection of Jesus and the importance of this in our lives, I wish to share this clip with you The Risen Way, which depicts the power of the resurrection. I pray that this may be encouraging and thought provoking as you prepare to celebrate Easter with your family.

 

I wish you a wonderfully relaxing and enjoyable break as a family and we look forward to welcoming our students back on Tuesday 17th April for their Term 2 studies.

 

Kindest regards,

Mr Tony Costa

Head of Campus

The annual Easter Bonnet parade is always a special time with the students parading past their parents who are full of smiles themselves and clicking away on their cameras. I love watching the interactions and sense of joy on people's faces. It's great to be able to celebrate special occasions as a community, as families. I had the opportunity and privilege recently, in conjunction with my grown up daughters and their families, to celebrate a special '0' birthday and weekend away for my wife. It was special to be able to honour her contribution to our family over many years and it meant a lot to her.

Easter is a special time too. It's great to celebrate the time with hot cross buns, chocolate eggs and special family time. It's also about honouring and being grateful to Jesus, God's Son, for the life He lived, for the love He showed and for His sacrifice on the cross. Easter saw Jesus take all our wrong doings upon Himself to save us from the judgement that should have fallen on us. In its place Jesus offers forgiveness, love, grace and an inner peace and joy. It's called Good Friday because it was good for us but was tough on Jesus. The Easter message doesn't end there as Jesus conquered death three days later after experiencing the most brutal of deaths imaginable. It's a message of victory, restoration, freedom and tells us that God is ultimately in control.

Likewise Anzac Day is just around the corner too, and as a school community we will gather together to celebrate and remember the sacrifice made by those who have served Australia in war. It's a time of remembering the cost and value of lives lost but also being thankful for the freedom we now have.

Both Anzac Day and Easter are about the cost of a life or lives, sacrifice for the benefit of others and the price paid  for a better future. We know there's plenty of hardship and grief in our world today but be assured God will meet us in whatever situations come our way offering strength, comfort, inner peace and an eternal hope. That's worth celebrating! Have a special Easter.

We have been delighted to see our students approaching their learning with such enthusiasm and focus throughout Term 1. It is our intention to provide feedback to both parents and students on a regular basis, as we know that this impacts the learning process in a positive way and allows us all to work together in supporting our students. Parents are now receiving regular personalised communications regarding student progress and personal learning via the ‘In Time Reporting’ process. Further to this, a summative end of Semester Report will be completed in July.

We anticipate that for the majority of parents, the ‘In Time Reporting’ will have provided the information needed to establish a good understanding of how your child is progressing. If, however, you wish to discuss the progress of your son/daughter further with staff, Parent/Teacher/Student Learning Conferences will be conducted from 4:00pm to 6:00pm and 6.30pm to 8.30pm on:

Thursday 26th April for both the Junior School, Prep–Year 4 and Middle School, Years 5 – 9

Parent/Teacher/Student Learning Conferences are 10 minutes in duration. If any parent requires a longer conference time, please discuss this with the relevant teacher prior to your selected time-slot.

Teachers Mr Nick Ward, Mr Mark Jacobi and Mrs Nicola Morrish will not be available for a learning conference on this date as they will be on leave. Parents of students in these teacher’s classes are welcome to contact them directly via email or via reception to arrange an alternate conference time.

Please note: We are asking all students in Years 3 to Year 9 to accompany their parents as part of our Learning Conference process. Research suggests that student learning can be impacted positively through the teacher providing direct feedback to individual students. It also provides opportunity for reflection, questions and discussion pertinent to goal setting. We feel that parents will also benefit from these opportunities for discussion and feedback.

Online Learning Conference Bookings are available from Tuesday 17th April from 4pm by going to www.schoolinterviews.com.au. Enter the school event code (krbqy) and book the teachers and times requested. Please see further instructions in the attached flyer, for your convenience. Please be aware that Learning Conference Bookings will close at 4.00pm on Tuesday 24th April for administration purposes.

I’ve had a wonderful time giving the Surfcoast prep class a group singing lesson on Tuesday afternoons this term.

We’ve all had a great time together singing through numerous vocal exercises, nursery rhymes and songs.

I look forward to working with our 'Surfcoast Prep Choir’ in term two.

The last few weeks of term have been quite  busy for our Year 10 students and over that time it has been wonderful to witness the level of engagement and participation of the students in embracing the myriad of activities and presentations on offer.

On Thursday 15th March, our students listened to a Cyber Safety presentation by Senior Constable Robbie Noggler and he provided students with a great deal of valuable information regarding how to stay safe online. It was a wonderful opportunity for students to hear first hand the experiences and advice of the Victoria Police when it comes to recommendations on the safe use of technology. As a parent, one of the main messages I can share is to keep an open channel of communication with your child.

On Friday 16th March a number of students attended our ‘Outdoor Cinema’ evening and it provided an excellent opportunity for us as Year Level Coordinators to interact with students in a less formal setting. They seemed to enjoy the evening and we do thank you for your support as we attempt to nurture and develop a sense of belonging to our cohort.

Our Athletics carnival was a great success and once again it was fantastic to see many of our Year 10 students shine. Whilst Burrows were victorious, all students should be congratulated on their participation on the day.

The first term has been marked by some wonderful celebrations and we are most impressed with the manner in which our Year 10 students have transitioned to Senior School.

We wish all of our Year 10 students and families a wonderful Easter. At times we may overlook some of the important things in life, when we are carried away by the myriad of tasks that keep us busy. Easter provides an opportunity for reflection and to be thankful for all the blessing that we have in our lives.

To celebrate the end of the term and new friendships formed between the Year 9 Mentors and the Year 5 students, we held an Easter morning. The Mentors arranged an Easter Egg Hunt and an Egg and Spoon race for the Year 5 students.

Despite being a little cold, all students enjoyed this session together and sharing their excitement over the upcoming Easter event. We look forward to the remainder of the year with our Year 9 friends.

The Year 5s have all been working very hard to represent the Easter Story through dioramas. They are currently on display and all are welcome to come and have a look at their hard work.

It was an honour to be a part of the two incredible Easter services that were held within our magnificent Chapel today. As chaplains, Naomi and I count ourselves blessed to be able to facilitate a celebration that is so central to our Christian faith. It is at this time of the year that we are all encouraged to ponder the death of Jesus Christ upon the cross, and his resurrection 3 days later. It is through this, that we know that Jesus is the Son of God and that he has the power to save us from sin and give us the glorious promise of eternal life. This promise is one that is open to all who believe in him and is definitely something to be celebrated! 

 

I would also like to take the time to thank Mrs Mantelli and the music team for their wonderful performance and Mr Andy Davies, for his message entitled ‘Choose Me?’.

Wow what a blessing today was. The children from our Surf Coast Campus visited the Junior School and participated in their annual Easter Bonnet parade.

There were bonnets of all different shapes, sizes and colours and our children had such a lovely time spending time with their buddies, dancing, singing and parading their bonnets.

After the fun of the parade the children took part in a very special Easter Service led by Mr Rowan Thurman and Mr Kevin Smith. This time together gave the children the opportunity to reflect on the true meaning of Easter, which they have spent time learning about over the last few weeks.

After the service the children boarded the bus and headed to the Great Ocean Road Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery. While at the Chocolaterie the children had the opportunity to learn how chocolate is made and then they all made a large chocolate lollipop, which they then decorated and of course wanted to eat.

This was such a wonderful way to finish off what has been an incredible term for our little preps.

Junior/Middle School Assemblies.


On Thursday a number of Junior and Middle school students performed an Easter play in the auditorium which told the Easter story. The students practiced for weeks prior, and their roles in the play conveyed the essential Easter story of Jesus Christ coming to the cross for the salvation of every human being, if they choose to accept Christ into their hearts.

In the Bible, the book of Romans, chapter 6, verse 23 says this….”For the wages of sin is death, BUT the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord”.

This is all about Easter and the message of the play. It was wonderful to see students from year 3 to year 9 involved together in our community at Bellarine Campus sharing the Bible message that is Easter. I’d like to thank Victoria Kent for her great support throughout and Mikayla Sargison-Mcleod in year 9 for her energy and enthusiasm.

Please have a wonderful Easter and drive safely,

Blessings,

Mr. Gary Crole

Students in the Year 12 VCAL class enjoyed a two-day Urban Camp in Melbourne this week. The learning centred on being ‘savvy’ in the city. For many of the students taking responsibility to navigate the CBD was something new to them. In groups, they completed a competitive Great Race that led them to many of Melbourne’s main attractions concluding at the Botanical gardens. They used apps to find their way around the public transport system. Students implemented their previously planned out walking tours, observed social diversity in action, carried out some primary research and collected data related to their projects. They experienced healthy eating out on a budget in Chinatown followed by an evening stroll down Southbank for ice cream and a flame attraction. Students selected their lunch at the Queen Victoria Market according to a healthy and cultural set criterion. Thank you to the VCAL staff for the planning and preparation put into this camp and to Mr Fanning, Mrs Daffy and Miss Platt for their participation making the camp a worthwhile experience for everyone involved.

On Tuesday, our Year Four students explored the Easter Story and responded through drama re-enactments, musical expression, construction and collage.  The students had to make a personal connection to the Easter Story which they further unpacked in small groups.  To retell the Easter Story some students chose to construct a scene from the story using, Lego, wood, plastic and other construction materials.  There were detailed and precise scenes showing the tomb and the journey Jesus travelled.  Other groups expressed their understanding through music, creating and playing music to represent the story.  Another group of students re-enacted the scenes.  The play was delivered in a very powerful and professional performance.  Another group used collage to create a snapshot depicting a particular scene that grabbed their interest.  Through the layering of varied materials they were able to recreate artistic and expressive pieces of art.  The students displayed enthusiasm to learn more about the sacrifice Jesus endured and the love he has for us all.

A warm, sunny day made for an excellent athletics carnival. The day saw all four houses battle it out for the trophy, but in the end it was Penman that narrowly beat Flynn to take out the 2018 championship.

It was great to see so many students actively involved and encouraging each other. Students from prep to Year 9 level enjoyed themselves in a fun and engaging program.

Thanks to all our parents and college community who came out to support students. We appreciate the hard work of all our teachers and volunteers for helping make this a fantastic day.

We look forward to presenting the awards for year level champions at next term's major assembly.

The rolling hills of the Surf Coast campus are well and truly alive with the sound of music! In addition to our weekly singing sessions with Mrs. Kirstin, many students have taken up the opportunity to have individual piano lessons. I am looking forward to introducing a lunchtime concert series to the campus to celebrate the students’ musical developments and create performance opportunities from Term 2 onwards.

Prep T experienced their first public performance and represented the new campus beautifully at the Official Grand Opening ceremony on Friday, 16 March. The students learnt and performed the school hymn, “Seek Ye First” with passion and did their own rendition of “Jesus Loves Me”.

In the classroom setting, students have been developing their sense of pitch and rhythm with singing games and call-and-response songs using the xylophones.

Leading up to Easter, Junior School students have been observed in the ways that they serve others in and around the College. Throughout the week they have been awarded 'Serve' tickets which they can then place in their House collection tins (situated in the Hallway next to Mr Thurman's office). 

Students could be awarded 'Serve' tickets through performing Acts of Kindess (eg picking up papers out in the school ground, not because anyone asked you to but because you’re doing your bit to keep our environment tidy, or helping someone without being asked to or simply being kind). 

Students have also been encouraged to ask their teacher if they can talk about or present an aspect of the Easter message to their class, in Devotion time, or discussing the events leading up to Easter, for example Jesus pleading with God in the garden and Jesus washing the disciples feet.

It was great to see a Prep student on tip toe carefully and proudly placing their tag in their house tin before giving it a shake to hear how many tickets it was holding. 

A little encouragement goes a long way!

On Wednesday, four of our Year 9 students attended a STEM in Sport session led by the Geelong Cats and the Geelong Tech School. Students had the opportunity to investigate the impact of technology in sport through using the latest technology used for the National AFL draft testing. Students also gained feedback on game skills using technology and participated in workshops developing design and technology skills. In addition to these activities, a panel consisting of Monica Kelly from the Geelong Cats' sports science division, Andrew Mackie and Dr Richard Helmer PhD BE BSc, shared their experiences with the students.

“I enjoyed going to STEM in sport because we got to design a car and make up ideas to put into it.” Cooper Geall.

“In this program I enjoyed being exposed to the real life parts of technology and getting hands on with industry technology.” Noah Saffin.

“I thought that is was really good to be able to use the virtual reality system to be able to see and model cars in such high quality even before they were made.” Hunter Visser.

“I enjoyed having the opportunity to go to the STEM in Sport and having the chance to learn more about the equipment available to the AFL players and to learn about the new Geelong Tech School that will create lots of opportunities for the Geelong community.” Max Goulter.

On Friday 23rd March, we kicked off our Project Care Program for 2018. To help raise awareness and funds for The Good Friday Appeal our Year 9 students cooked over 500 pancakes for the rest of the student body. It was a great experience for the students of Year 9 to develop their collaboration and communication skills as they worked industriously getting the orders ready for each of the classes, cooking the pancakes and delivering them.

Students were encouraged to come to school in their Pyjamas as part of the Good Friday Appeal PJ Day and to bring a donation. As a school, we were able to raise $1260 to go to the Appeal. This money will be donated during the telethon on Good Friday, so look out for Christian College Bellarine.

Our Project Care days are a highlight for our school community. Our students get excited and embrace the opportunity to help those around us. This is testament to their developing character and a servant heart.

Thank you for your enthusiasm and support with Project Care.

On Monday of this week all of the Year 3 students came together for the culmination of our novel study for this term which has been ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’.

The annual Wonka Day was celebrated by watching the famous original version of the movie “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory’ and sampling some yummy Wonka candy.

Wonka Day was a wonderful way for us to complete a comparative study of the text to the film and through discussion, the children were able to identify the similarities and differences of both mediums.

A delicious and fun day was had by all.

Can you believe it is already the end of Term 1? So much has happened over the last nine weeks and I would like to take this opportunity to give you a brief overview of what the Christian College Bellarine students have been creating in Drama.

The Year 5’s this week performed the Dreamtime stories they had written for the Preps. In small groups, students needed to create a story that had Australian animals as their characters, contained both narration and dialogue, had an element of dance and told a creation story – how something came to be. Next term, students will extend their learning about the storytelling styles of different cultures to include both Africa and Asia. Students will then write, rehearse and perform a creation story for the continent they develop in Geography.

The Year 7’s have been ‘clowning around’ – literally. A busy few performance days in the Auditorium saw the Year 7’s display their learning to some Year 3 buddies. For this task, students worked collaboratively to develop a clowning performance using slapstick comedy. Next term, students will research the theatre style Commedia Dell’arte before using this learning to create an end-of-term performance piece.

The Year 8’s have had a busy time developing both solo and group mime performances. Now, they are in the midst of exploring a number of different performance elements in their work with the nonsense poem Jabberwocky. Students will continue their learning with this next term before adapting a picture story book into a performance piece.

Finally, the Year 9’s work with theatre styles from Greek Theatre to Melodrama, has seen the group given the opportunity to create a performance for the Geelong After Dark event on May 4. After being given the provocation of Geelong’s transformation, students have developed a performance piece based on conventions of both Epic Theatre and Theatre of the Oppressed – using the transformation of Geelong’s employment landscape (blue collar to white collar) to highlight the issue of homelessness. Students will continue to collaborate with the Year 9 Guerilla Art group to refine their work ahead of the performance night.

A huge thank you to students for the energy and enthusiasm you bring to this subject – I am really looking forward to what Term 2 might bring…

Just before I go, please do not forget to buy tickets to this year’s school production – Alice – which will go on sale soon. Performances will be held at The Potato Shed in Drysdale between May 3 and 5, with a couple of familiar Bellarine faces taking part.

Christian College Geelong is pursuing continuous improvements with our systems.

The introduction of the student ID card enables the College to provide improved safety measures on buses, in addition to allowing students to more easily and efficiently access photocopying whilst on campus.

All College buses have been fitted with the Bus Minder System, which gathers data relating to student use of Christian College buses. When travelling by bus, students are required to ‘tap’ on and off at a control located near the bus driver. We ask that all parents/guardians remind their child of this expectation.

It is an expectation that students can access their ID card at all times whilst at school. If a card is lost or damaged, students report to the IT technician for a replacement. A replacement fee of $10.00 is charged for the card.

We see the student ID card adding to efficiencies in our daily routines, in addition to supporting the duty of care we provide for our students.

The Year 2 and Year 6 students enjoyed working together as they drew on their drawing skills to complete a Building Learning Power activity.

The students sat back to back and each took turns at describing a picture they had to draw. It was great to see the students working to develop their listening, imitation, imagining and collaborating muscles throughout the activity.

It was wonderful to watch the Year 6 students guiding the younger children through the activity and being such great role models. It was equally as pleasing to see the Year 2 students take up the challenge and give the activity their very best effort. Well done to all concerned!

Under bright blue skies last Friday, the 2018 Year 4 – 9 Athletics Carnival was held at Middle School. With a host of students from older year levels competing at the National Championships the week prior, the Junior School students had the privilege to participate alongside these students.

All Year 4 students participated in the 100, 200 and 800 metre races. Students that qualified for the four field events competed to gain a spot for the next athletics meet in Term 3, while other students participated in some great novelty events earning some valuable house points.

The Year 4 students participated with a lot of enthusiasm and effort in warm conditions. Taylor came out on top followed by Penman, Flynn and Burrows. The top three students in each year level will be awarded a medal for earning the highest amount of points throughout the day. These will be presented at the first assembly in Term 2.

Students that finished in the top two places will have an opportunity to compete in the Deakin District Athletics Carnival in Term 3.

A big thank you to the PE and Sport team for their wonderful organisation and all the Year 4 teachers that assisted on the day.

Our Japanese program provides the Junior school students opportunities to learn not only language skills but also intercultural understanding and awareness. There are many special days in Japan. One of the traditional annual Japanese festivals is Hina-Matusri, Doll Festival or Girls’ Day in March. This festival is a time to pray and wish for the healthy growth of young girls. Japanese families who have little daughters celebrate Hinamatsuri Festival by setting up a display of beautiful hina dolls. Through various fun cultural activities such as making Japanese doll cards or origami dolls and watching video clips, the students learnt about the festival, as well they learnt to appreciate and have respect for, a different culture.

This week, Year 9 Geography students have explored the changing face of disaster relief, through the advanced technological development of drones. They discovered the multiple, complex and critical capabilities of this technology to survey areas, deploy resources and ultimately save lives in the midst of natural disasters, while practicing their own drone flying skills on our College grounds. Students had the opportunity to reflect on the significance of this type of technology, discuss the legal ramifications of its use, and wonder about the positive and negative consequences they will see play out in their own futures. Geography students will next fly drones as a means of exploring the impacts of human behavior on fragile coastlines, during their overnight field trip along the Great Ocean Road in Term 2. The future is coming!

It was wonderful to have the parents of 4B visiting with their children at the Villa Paloma Art Complex this week. Students in 4B have been using state of the art digital technology at the Villa Paloma facility as a part of their Art education.

The children have been working on the theme of mythical creatures....they have created drawings , scanned in images, printed from their device and created a wire and clay sculpture.

Parents were able to view their children in action during their visit and were also encouraged to to engage in the creative process.

It was a privilege to observe children and parents collaborating on a small clay project. I could not help but overhear words of encouragement with some parents expressing .." This is great Fun" .."I have learnt something new too". The Year Four students embraced this opportunity with great enthusiasm and an outstanding attitude.

I very much look forward to next term in working with another Year 4 class at the Villa Paloma.

Congratulations Luka on a brilliant rowing season.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish both Mrs Helen Kreeck and Mr Rowan Thurman God's richest blessings as they take some Long Service Leave time to travel. Mr Thurman will be away for the first four weeks of term two and we are very blessed to have Mr Stephen Riddle former Head of both Junior School and Middle Schools assisting us during this time in a Chaplaincy capacity. Mrs Helen Kreeck will be travelling for all of Term two and Mrs Eliza Lambert, who has worked within Junior School as a CRT and already has a relationship with our students, will be ably teaching Digital Technologies across Prep to Year Four during this time. I am sure you will join me in wishing them safe and joy filled travels.

Highton Campus House Athletics Carnival

Last Friday saw our Highton students run, jump and throw across a number of traditional athletic events, along with novelty events where they accumulated points for their respective House. All students are to be congratulated on their efforts on the day. The House ‘spirit’  shown on the day was particularly evident in the relay events at the end of the program, which saw all of our students surrounding the runners in the finishing straight. We were blessed to watch some excellent athletic performances on the day, and we congratulate the Taylor Tigers on their win in the second of our major House Carnivals for the year.

 

With this House Athletics result, and our Swimming Carnival earlier in the term (1st Penman, 2nd Flynn, 3rd Burrows and 4th Taylor), every House should be looking forward to the next major Carnival, which is the cross-country event being held in the first week of next term.

Congratulations to Mila Guerrero, of 7G.  Mila won the design competition for the new Christian College Recycling Programme.  Mila’s logo will be the symbol for the way Christian College Year 7 Students think about sustainability, and the role we all can play.  She has depicted the dove of peace, and of the Holy Spirit, as a feature of our world and our community; and the process of reducing our waste, reusing what we can, and recycling what is left, is symbolised by the three arrows.  Mila was presented with a Smiggle voucher at this week’s year 7 Assembly.  Well done Mila!

Christian College Geelong is pursuing continuous improvement with our systems.

 

The introduction of the student ID card enables the College to provide improved safety measures on buses, in addition to allowing students to more easily and efficiently access photocopying whilst on campus.

 

All College buses have been fitted with the Bus Minder System, which gathers data relating to student use of Christian College buses. When travelling by bus, students are required to ‘tap’ on and off at a control located near the bus driver. We ask that all parents/guardians remind their child of this expectation.

Prep T's ID cards will be stored in the reception office on campus and issued for use on excursions where they will then be collected for storage again.

 

It is an expectation that students can access their ID card at all times whilst at school. If a card is lost or damaged, students report to the IT technician for a replacement. A replacement fee of $10.00 is charged for the card.

 

We see the student ID card adding to efficiencies in our daily routines, in addition to supporting the duty of care we provide for our students.

This term, Phil Hooton from ‘Checkmate’ Chess Coaching has been coaching some of our middle school students. Participants have learnt many tactics, strategies, special moves, traps and openings to help them improve their game, have a lot of fun and develop new friendships across different year levels.

 

In the final week, students participated in an exciting and suspenseful tournament.

The College’s Senior Ensembles have just completed their 5th day of a 10 day itinerary that has seen them appearing in the Pacific Basin Music Festival at various venues around Honolulu.

The Senior Strings, Choir, Stage Band and Wind Symphony members have been performing and connecting with students from across the USA, New Zealand and Australia.

Last night the Senior Choir performed at the beautiful Central Union Church in Honolulu. Following the choir performances the audience was treated to a workshop lesson on how to sing a traditional Hawaiian song and perform the expressive and gentle Hula dance movements that accompany the lyrics.

Today the Senior Strings and Wind Symphony have performed for a very appreciative audience in the Grand Ballroom at the Alohilani Resort in Waikiki. Both groups played their chosen repertoire with musicality, confidence and poise.

Earlier in the week the Wind Symphony had an exchange rehearsal with the 80 piece band who hail from West Salem High School in Portland, Oregon. Combined the two groups formed a 120 piece band. The band members sat side by side reading off each other’s music, playing each other’s pieces. During the exchange rehearsal there was time to chat and learn about each other’s lives, and at the end the musicians exchanged gifts and mementos of the exchange..... one of the West Salem students was 'fortunate’ to be introduced to, and given a jar of Vegemite!

Last Sunday, as part of the festival’s outdoor concert series the Senior Strings and Choir performed at the Ala Moana shopping Centre. Many shoppers stopped to enjoy their music and the students received great applause and compliments for their great work.

The music students and staff are having a wonderful trip and enjoying the beautiful and very consistent 27 degree days and balmy evenings in Waikiki.
Sending our friendly and laid back Hawaiian ‘vibe' home to our school community, friends and families,

- The students and staff of the Senior Music Tour - Hawaii 2018
