As recognise ANZAC Day, our Campus held an ANZAC service on Monday morning.

This event commemorated the sacrifice of our military men and women throughout history, allowing students to show their respect for our fallen soldiers. Prefects were involved in prayers, readings and wreath laying. The students performed a hymn and the national anthem within the service, and remained amazingly respectful of the meaning of this day.

The Last Post was played by Year 6 student, Mitchell Grunberg. This service has grown and has continued to be a key event on our Bellarine Campus calendar. It was great to have members of the Drysdale RSL present and involved. I talked about a man named Maurice Little, who took part in the Gallipoli battle of Quinn’s Post. Maurice was known to be capable and courageous but, more importantly, a man known for his fine Christian character - a born leader with the ability to inspire his men.

During battle, Maurice was critically injured all over his body. His attitude was always positive and optimistic, which was due to his unshakable Christian faith. Maurice’s faith and determination showed a hopefulness that could not be overcome by his injuries or by all he had seen. 

He did not blame or question the God whom he trusted.

On Monday, our school communities at each campus across the College took special time to pause and reflect on the great sacrifice made by Australians, past and present, who serve to protect our country and enable us to live in freedom.

Due to potential bad weather, our Anzac Day service at Junior School had to be held in the Assembly Hall, but it was still touching to see the ‘coming together’ of people from of all ages to honour and pay our respects for those who have served.

It is always a great pleasure for us to welcome our friends from Sirovilla to this service. Our Year 4 students led the service and were beautifully supported by the Junior School Choir, Mrs Karamatic and Mrs Carr. They treated us to a superb rendition of ‘Travelling Soldier’ and Harrison Leigh (from Year 7), who played the 'Last Post' and 'Reveille'.

Thank you to Rowan Thurman and all those who helped in creating this beautiful opportunity to come together in commemoration.

Dear Parents of Years 5, 7 and 9,

This year, as part of the Federal Government National Benchmark Assessments in Literacy and Numeracy, students at Christian College - along with other students across Australia - will participate in state-based standardised assessments to monitor trends in these learning areas.

In Australia, all students in Years 5, 7 and 9 complete a National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) test conducted by the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority. These tests and assessments are used to monitor trends in these learning areas.

The testing dates are Tuesday, 9th May, Wednesday, 10th May and Thursday, 11th May.

In the weeks preceding these tests, students will undertake practise tests in order to familiarise themselves with the testing format and time allocations.

Christian College uses these NAPLAN Tests as one of a wide range of student tests and assessment tasks to measure the progress and skill development of your young person. These results will be made available in Term 3.

Senior School students and staff commenced House Group on Monday morning with an ANZAC video presentation, and then proceeded to surround our ANZAC Memorial and flagpole for a very moving Commemoration Service.

College Prefect Tess Kirsopp-Cole told us the story of Geelong recruit, Trooper Scotty Bolton, of the 4th Light Horse Regiment. Our special guest at the service was WWII veteran Harry Symons and his granddaughter, Year 10 student Remy Olsen, recited the Ode to the Fallen.

The Last Post and The Rouse were poignantly played by Thomas Fernee. Our thanks to all participating staff and students for your contribution to this significant occasion.

Just a reminder that Year 2 students will be arriving back at Junior School at 1:30pm on Friday, 28th April, following their three-day camp at Anglesea. 

Once the luggage has been unloaded from the bus and the children have their belongings, you are welcome to collect them from the roundabout in front of the school.  We anticipate this will be approximately 1:45pm – 2pm.

If you are unable to collect your child from school at this time, your child will be supervised at school for the remainder of the school day, until 3.25pm. 

Children attending after school care on this Friday will be escorted there, with their camp belongings, by a staff member.

Peter Pan

This weekend is most exciting, with three presentations of Peter Pan at GPAC. Mandy Calderwood has been working incredibly hard to ensure that each performance is fine-tuned to the highest level. The Director of Music, Fiona Gardner, has been responsible for the music and has brought together the musicians in her usual excellent manner. The learning experiences these students will have will be most powerful. These events are the memories our students take with them when they leave our College.

There are a few tickets still available at GPAC, and we urge those who have not thought of going, to do so.

Premiers Awards

It was a pleasure for Outdoor Education teacher Dave Evans, and myself, to attend the Premiers Awards in Melbourne yesterday. These awards recognise students who have achieved at the highest level in a particular subject. Rosie Murphy achieved a perfect score of 50 in Outdoor and Environmental Studies and was then awarded a Premiers Award. Not every perfect score receives a Premiers Award, and we estimate Rosie was in the top four students in the state for this subject in 2016.

Rosie was our College Dux last year, and was most appreciative of the support she received from her teachers. She is studying at La Trobe University this year.

We congratulate Rosie on her achievement and wish her well for the future.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

The Senior School House Cross Country and Tug ‘O’ War Championships will be held on Wednesday, 3rd May at Christian College Senior Campus.

The College believes participation in House sport competitions are an integral part of the Senior School program. At most, the Cross Country involves 25 minutes of moderate exercise. If your child is ill or injured, please ensure that a note explaining the details of the illness or injury - and what participation is allowed - is handed to their House Group teacher before the event.

Each student participating in the Cross Country will be awarded points towards the 'DC Riddle Cup', therefore all students are encouraged to run for their House. Students will be completing a 3km course around our Senior Campus. As a result of running in this event, students will have the opportunity to represent Christian College at the GISSA Cross Country.

All students are to wear their House polo shirt with their College sports gear to school on the day. Students with special medical needs are required to bring their own medication ie. Ventolin, Epi-pen. If you child's medical condition has altered since completing the medical form at the beginning of the school year, please inform your House Group teacher in writing.

Parents are warmly invited to attend and watch their children participate.

During Play Based Learning, a group of students discussed the different sounds objects made while creating at the craft table.

This led to a range of instruments being made, music written and a performance. Nerves were overcome as an excited audience were privileged to hear the sounds of the 'Prep S Band'. The range of learning and development of skills was evident in the student collaboration, through independent creation of the instruments, organisation of a band, writing of the music and performing for the remaining Preps and teachers.

This demonstrates the excellent thinking platform that Play Based Learning provides. Who knows, Carnegie Hall next?

After a pleasant ferry ride across the pristine waters of Port Phillip Bay, we landed at the spectacular Portsea Camp.

Students enjoyed challenging themselves by climbing on the high ropes course, riding on the giant flying fox, fishing and participating in team-building activities. Many students were able to reflect on how the activities stretched them beyond their ‘comfort zone’ and were able to identify the skills that were vital to achieving their goals.

The activities assisted the students to further develop many life-long learning skills, including perseverance, patience, communication and collaboration.

Over the last two weeks, Mathematics in Prep has focused on the topic of ‘Measurement’.

The children have participated in a range of activities with the aim of building and reinforcing their knowledge and understanding of this area of work. Some of the activities the children have completed have included measuring different items using informal units such as icy pole sticks, pieces of wool and unifix cubes - as well as ordering a set of objects according to their length and comparing the heights of fellow students.

The children have also been able to apply their knowledge and use their thinking skills as they have accessed measurement activities through the Interactive Whiteboard and our class set of laptops.

Over the next week, our Prep mathematicians will be continuing with this topic as they are encouraged to investigate the areas of mass and capacity.

The Year 3 and 4 Cross Country was conducted this week under grey and drizzly skies.

But this didn’t deter students completing a 2km course around the Junior School grounds. The course was modified after recent heavy rainfall soaked the oval and other grassed areas.

Students contributed points to their House, according to the place they finished. The winning House was Taylor with 70 points, second was Burrows on 74 points, Flynn was third on 91 points and fourth was Penman on 112 points.

Christian College Geelong is pleased to present to the community the adventures of Peter Pan.

The magical story of the boy who never grows up has been delighting children for over 100 years and this faithful new version is perfect for the whole family. Featuring music and lyrics by the award-winning duo George Stiles and Anthony Drewe, we join Peter and the Darling family as they are whisked away to Neverland, a magical world of colourful characters including the Lost Boys, Tiger Lily and, of course, the dastardly Captain Hook. 

With a spectacular mix of swashbuckling adventure, energetic dance numbers and a memorable score, Peter Pan is guaranteed to bring forth one's inner child, and send you reeling "Just Beyond the Stars."

Featuring students from Years 5-12, Christian College's production of Peter Pan is bound to delight and excite a new generation of Geelong children and we invite you to come along.

During Term 1, the Year 9 Outdoor and Environmental students completed a Beach Safety and Surf Awareness unit, culminating in a discovery of why some people are at a high risk of drowning at Victorian beaches.

After gaining new knowledge on the risks facing beachgoers, the students were encouraged to communicate this to a real and meaningful audience.

Max Hyde from Year 9 has provided the following piece: 

I am looking forward to sharing both an easy way to spot a rip, and also how to survive one. Firstly, you might be wondering, who is my target audience? This article is aimed at children, but it is recommended that parents learn this information, especially if they have little knowledge of rips.

You may also be asking what risks are involved, especially with children? Some of the risks involving children and the sea include: not supervising them, swimming in rough waves and the natural sea environment, including rocks and fish. But returning to the subject of riptides – which is probably the biggest risk to children.

Rips themselves cannot directly harm a person, as they only drag someone out to sea. The primary way rips can be harmful is the force of the current; as swimmers try to push against the current but become too tired to swim. If this happens to you, raise one hand in a fist and the lifeguard will come to you. While this is happening, REMAIN CALM. There is no point stressing out, as it will only make you tired.

Now, here is how to spot a riptide. Remember this acronym:

R: Room - In a riptide, there is room for the waves to travel out.

I: Inconsistency - The gap in the water is easy to find, as it is a strange inconsistency in the water.

P: Push - Another obvious way to see a riptide is if the water is being pushed out.

Next time you travel to the beach with mum and dad, or if you are the parent and travel with your children, take this advice and swim safe at the beach next summer.

Have a wonderful Term 2 everybody.
