House Music

Our annual House Music was a great afternoon at Costa Hall, with Flynn winning overall. The comperes for the afternoon were Riley Doran and Casey Reid. They were superb, being able to explain each piece and setting the scene for what was to come.

In the House Choir section, Taylor commenced with George Michael’s 'Faith'. The student music leaders were Kahlee Weir, Lachlan Gawley-Price, Megan Heathcote and Jack McPhail. The standard was set high and early. Then Flynn sang 'You’re the Voice' by John Farnham. Casey Reid and Cameron Chandler led the choir well and they raised the roof with this anthem. Penman were third to perform and, for their House Choir, they sang “I See Red” by Tim Finn. This got the audience moving and shaking. They were followed by Burrows performing the classic “Lean On Me”. The actions of the choir led by Nicole Mayes, Cian Foster and Riley Doran left us all feeling good.

The winner was Flynn in a version that John Farnham would have been most proud.

Tiger Yang performed a piano solo Sonata Op 13 ‘Pathetique’, 3rd mvt ‘Rondo Allegro’ by Beethoven. It was simply stunning and he received a standing ovation being declared the winner in this section. Casey Reid’s solo was also brilliant, and showcased her ability and musical range.

To all the Heads of House, a huge thank you for all of the hard work. A special thank you to Mr Damian Stephenson, who was the Acting Head of House in the absence of Mr Lynton Smith. He put together all of the pieces and ensured Flynn were organised in each area.

To the students who rehearsed so much and performed well on the day, a big thank you and recognition of your efforts. They all really enjoyed themselves.

The House Music student leaders were tremendous in all they did. These are the people who gave so much of their time to ensure the performances were of the highest possible standard. We salute you all!

Finally to the Music staff in Ms Fiona Gardner, Mr Andrew Dunlop, Mr Ben Anderson and the incredibly talented Mr Kym Dillon, recognition of a job well done.

These celebrations place us apart from the majority of schools.

Last Sunday, students from Christian College took part in the Salvation Army’s Red Shield Appeal.

We had an amazing turn out, with over 70 students coming along to help doorknock as part of this year’s Salvation Army fundraising appeal. The morning was a wonderful opportunity for our students (along with some Senior and Junior School students) to volunteer their time, joining in the magnificent work the Salvation Army does in our local community! It is definitely encouraging that, as a Middle School, we had over 50 students willing to give up their Sunday; not to mention on a cold and wet Autumn day. The students came to school in their uniform and embraced the opportunity to SERVE, reflecting the wondeful character and servant heart of our young people.

In around 90 minutes of doorknocking, our Christian College students raised just over $3600!! 

I was very proud of the students as they represented our College, their family and the Salvation Army wonderfully well. It was lovely to see the interaction between students from different year levels and the staff and parents who were helping, both while out collecting and while sharing a drink and hot food together as they counted the money. There was a great sense of community.

Thank you for your support.

Last Sunday, students from Christian College Bellarine took part in the Salvation Army’s Red Shield Appeal.

We had an amazing turn out, with 50 students from Years 5 to 9 coming along to help doorknock as part of this year’s Salvation Army fundraising appeal. I was very proud of the students as they set off around the Drysdale and Clifton Springs area, looking amazing in their school uniforms. I have spoken to a couple of people who had their doorknocked by one of our groups and they were very impressed by the maturity and charisma our students demonstrated.

This is a fantastic way for the students to be involved in something that is so beneficial to our local community, as well as being such a great way for the community to see our students and what they stand for. I was blown away by the excitement of the students as they returned with their donations; it was obvious that they had loads of fun while they were out and about. It was lovely to see the interaction between students from different year levels and the different staff and parents who were helping, both while out and while sharing a drink and some hot food together as they counted the money. There was a great sense of community.

A massive thank you to those staff and parents. It was not taken for granted at all that you gave up your Sunday morning sleep in!! Everything was very easy to organise and that is because we had so many hands helping out!

As a total, the students were able to raise $2,705.86. This is $1200 more than last year. While it’s not about beating last year, this shows that our students are really starting to think about how they can help those around them.

Please give the students a huge pat on the back as you see them around school. Thank you again for your support with Project Care.

Last week, a number of our junior years students had the opportunity to go with the Year 11 Outdoor Education students on an excursion to Yolinko Wetlands.

The Year 11 students were planned and prepared to provide their young buddies with fun, hands-on learning opportunities which linked to the sustainability and well being of the wetlands. The activities were inclusive of all students and catered to different learning styles.

Some students played tag, which led to a discussion about the effect of waste on the wetlands, and another group made a food web with yarn. On the bus trip back to Junior School, it was evident that relationships had been built between the students involved and a great day was had by all.

Last week, our Year 9 Outdoor and Environmental Studies students travelled to Wilsons Promontory, to adventure through an epic bushwalking camp in one of Australia’s most iconic national parks.

Leaving the comforts of the Tidal River Café and Caravan Park behind, the students hiked into remote corners of the park, enjoying camping in beautiful areas adjacent to pristine beaches. To succeed on their hike, the students had to rely on their collaboration, planning and noticing skills. And perseverance was key to completing the gruelling 42 km trek.

While in the park, students considered the big question ‘Should Wilsons Promontory be further developed to increase access to this natural area?’ Reflections on this question before, during and after the camp have assisted students to deepen their understanding of sustainability, low impact tourism and the influence they have in protecting our most important natural spaces.

The 2017 Senior School House Music was a Celebration of our wonderful Community!

The Music student leaders steered their Houses through hours of planning and rehearsals to climax in a day that was astoundingly entertaining and enjoyable!

John Farnham's 'You're the Voice' performed by the Flynn House Choir took the Choir Prize. Flynn presented a choir of 125 students with great voice, effective choreography and superb student leadership from Casey Reid and Cameron Chandler!

 

Tiger Yang wowed the crowd with his work on the Steinway by presenting a breath taking performance of the 3rd movement of Beethoven's  Pathetique sonata to win the Solo Performance award. We had a tie for the small ensemble prize with Penman and Burrows both presenting small ensembles that were beautiful, Penman performing 'Down' by Samantha Gongoi and Burrows 'Can't Help Falling in Love' arranged by Year 12 student Riley Doran.

The competition finished on a high with Burrows' large ensemble achieving the highest ensemble score for the day with their very uplifting rendition of Cat Empires 'Fishies'. Our guest adjudicators for the day, Ryan Bentley and Martin DeMarte were blown away by the standard of every House presentation!

 

Flynn were the overall winners for the day with Burrows a very close second, but the victories were in every item and in all of the Senior School community contributing to a musical extravaganza!!

Last week the students in Year 3 had the opportunity to attend the Toonworld's Animation incursion.


The children spent time in small groups collaborating and creating a 'stop motion animation', using clay, props and an iPad. Since this incursion, the students have been writing stories and bringing them to life through the use of stop motion animation. This task also provides rich opportunity for our students to authentically and purposefully practise their skills of critical thinking, creative thinking, problem solving, communication, reasoning etc alongside the literacy, technology and artistic skills that are more immediately obvious.
The students are looking forward to completing their animations and sharing them with their families at the annual 'Animation Celebration' early next term.

In Year 5, students are completing a big project called, ‘The Atlas Task’.

They work in groups to establish a fictional continent and, within it, an individual country as well as its climate and main features, like ports and landmarks.

The Atlas task involves a lot of smaller and integrated tasks from a range of subjects. These include maps, case studies and advertisements for Geography and Economics. Students develop their own animals in Science. During English lessons, they write poems, folktales and reflections. Mathematics has also been used, as students have made towns and are dividing the towns population into the streets. We have also created recipes for the ‘national food’ of their country, as a part of the 'Fractions' Unit.

A Year 5 student Jack Daley reflects on what he enjoys about this task: “I like that we can choose what path we want to go down because of what we are interested in. I love to cook and to build things with my hands and I have been able to choose tasks that let me do that.” 

A Year 5 student Lucy Howards reflects on how she overcame some challenges through this task: “The challenges I faced while doing the Atlas Task was planning my time to make sure I did each task and trying to find out what can I do better. How I overcame this challenge was by asking other people to give me feedback and to see what I need to make it better; also looking at the OneNote, which shows all information for each assessment and homework.”

The students are very excited to present their work and learning at a 'Travel Expo', which we warmly invite Year 5 parents to attend. Please see the attached invitation for all the details.

This term, the Year 11 Outdoor and Environmental Studies students have been working on a unit titled ‘Yollinko’ (indigenous word for wetland).

As part of this unit, the students have been working towards delivering a Yollinko-orientated lesson to Grade 2 students at Junior School. In the weeks prior, the Year 11’s have learnt about the ecological importance of wetlands as well as the Wathaurong and European History of Balyang Sanctuary. The Year 11 students designed detailed lesson plans, outlining every aspect of their session and some of their creative ideas impressed all involved.

  • Native bird origami
  • Indigenous tree memory games
  • Fishing for mini beasts
  • Storm water tiggy

As you can see, both year levels of students had a great time:

“The lesson went really well; I got to experience children’s first encounter with a lot of new and weird mini beasts,” Nicholas Hinks, Year 11.

“I thought today was not going to be fun, but it was fun!” Zen, Year 2.

“Gilbert (a Year 2 student) had memorised all the native bird species we had taught him, and he was able to point them out and repeat the facts back to us,” Layla Hildebrandt, Year 11.

“Overall, I was actually very pleased with our performance on the day. I believe we performed better than the plan which we originally made, so this was pleasing,” Corey Knight, Year 11.

The recent terrorist attack in Manchester, England where children and young people were among the victims, has spread shockwaves across the globe. With media coverage reaching saturation levels, it’s difficult to shield children from these events. The task for parents is to reassure children, while trying to explain events that, for most of us, are inexplicable. While most parents quiet naturally don’t want to discuss terrorism with children, it’s not a topic that you should avoid, particularly if your children ask pertinent questions.
Here are some ideas that will help:

1. Discussions that are age-appropriate
The Australian Psychological Society recommends: “it’s best to shield pre-schoolers completely from frightening or traumatic world events". This means protecting young children from media coverage and being mindful of adult conversations around young children. However even young children overhear conversations and know something may be happening, so be prepared to discuss events in ways that they understand. Primary school-aged children have more exposure through the media and the schoolyard. However, children can easily misinterpret events so be prepared to clarify misconceptions and open the way for conversations. Older children are usually very aware of media coverage, and have an understanding of the ramifications, both personally and politically. Opening the way for more in-depth conversations, as well as processing any feelings that arise, is important for this age group.

2. Manage yourself first
Children of all ages take their cues about unusual events from their parents. Events such as terrorism may leave you feeling unsettled and outraged, but you need to think carefully about the emotions you communicate to children. First and foremost they need to feel safe, so it’s best to keep extreme emotions in check in front of children. Share how you feel with your children but make sure you are in control of your emotions. Air strong feelings of anger or disgust with trusted adults if you need to vent or explore your own reactions.

3. Find out what they know
Children often confuse time and place so they can easily think that an event that occurred on the other side world will directly impact on them. Young children, in particular, usually personalise situations. They may, for example, think that an older relative is in danger because he or she is a regular concert-goer.

4. Keep conversations simple
Let children steer the conversation with their questions and worries. Answer children’s questions matter-of-factly and simply while bringing issues down to their level, if necessary, by talking about why people get into fights, and pinpointing appropriate and inappropriate reactions. With older children and teens, you may be able to have discussions around politics and religion but do so without stereotyping, or providing narrow analyses of events.

5. Listen to their worries
Encourage your children to talk about their feelings as well as their thoughts about the events. If possible, help them give their feelings a name. Assist them to understand that it’s normal to feel scared, sad and angry when events like these occur. Some children may want to spend more time around you, which is a natural reaction to distressing events occur that are outside their control.


6. Monitor media exposure
Limit children’s exposure to television as constant viewing of images of tragedy and terror can reinforce that the world is a dangerous place. Be mindful that constant repetition can desensitise some children, impacting on their ability to feel empathy. If news is being seen, join children and young people to watch those media stories of terrorism so you can provide adult perspective and clarity to what they are seeing.


7. Help kids feel empowered
Keep reminding children and young people that their world is basically a safe place. Focus on simple ways that young children stay safe, such as wearing a seatbelt, using a helmet while riding a bike and strapping on safety gear when they skateboard. Older children may want to fundraise for a charity organisation so they learn that they can make a positive difference. You may also hold discussions with teenagers about current safety measures, such as airport security and possible increases in security at future entertainment and sporting events.


8. Remind kids that people are good
Perhaps the most insidious aspect about terrorism for those who are not directly affected by it is that it can lead to mistrust of others and a cynicism toward different religious or political groups. It’s easy to lose sight of the basic goodness in all of us. It maybe useful then to highlight stories of heroism and goodness that come out of terrorism attacks. With young children, make a list of all the people such as medics, police and fire personnel who keep us safe. With older children, share stories of heroism, community and helpers that always come surface after distressing events.


Conversations about disastrous events such as terrorism provide opportunities for parents to help children manage difficult emotions; and help them make sense of complex events while broadening their understanding of the world.

Have you ever wondered if bubble wrap might keep your feet warmer than socks? Our Year 6 students might be able to answer that for you.

This term in Science, the Year 6 students have undertaken an investigation into materials. In this unit, students have learnt about what materials are, the properties of materials and how we use different materials to suit our many different needs. 

This unit has seen students design their own experiment, where they are testing the insulation efficiency of different materials. Students have tested materials such as socks, school blazers, lunchboxes, foil and bubble wrap to see how effectively they prevent heat loss. It has been so amazing to see these students design their own experiment from start to finish, and some have certainly seen some interesting and unexpected results, but don't just take it from me:

"I really enjoyed our experiment on insulation this term. It was a learning experience; fun but also challenging. This was a very good experiment because the result was always unexpected; it made you think. For me, the result was not at all what I thought it would be. It made me want to understand more. Working with a partner was really good because it meant you had two perspectives" - Angelica Lawrence

The sun shone and the waves crashed on the shore as the Preps investigated the beach at Point Lonsdale.

Discovering what lay beneath rocks and in rock pools was of great interest as the children explored the natural space. Different species of seaweed, crab legs and cuttlefish bone were just some of the things Preps found and investigated.

Ideas were expressed, as the Preps puzzled and questioned their learning environment. As the Preps continue to learn together, what more adventures and discoveries will happen?

A big thank you from Senior School.

On Sunday, 21 students from our Campus braved the cold weather to doorknock, serve others and make a difference in our community. The funds raised from the annual doorknock appeal go towards the less fortunate providing food, shelter, health, and support. 

This was a fantastic opportunity for our students to get involved in community service and become aware of how their involvement in volunteering can make a difference to a life. I was very impressed with our students demonstrating maturity and enthusiasm, representing themselves and the College in a well-mannered and professional way. 

I wish to thank all students involved on the day and also the parents and staff helpers that were of fantastic assistance.

Thank you

On Friday, 26th May, the Year 9 'Editorial' students headed to Queenscliff Harbour, where they worked with photographer Michael Chambers.

They were given a brief to take photographs of the harbour in order to represent the history of Queenscliff Harbour. The students were encouraged to interpret this brief in their own way and to send their two best shots to Michael for feedback, with the possibility of their photographs appearing in the local paper at a later date.

All students enjoyed the opportunity for real-life application of their photography skills and we are all excited to see the selected photography printed in the paper.

Last week saw the completion of the Year 10 Outdoor Education 'Risk' unit.

In class, students have been building their understanding of risk; the benefits of taking risks in life; and how to manage risks in the outdoors to stay safe. They have been mountainbiking and rockclimbing indoors to explore these concepts further, and last week they had the peak experience of an outdoor cliff climb. Some students chose to go on a day trip to the Brisbane Ranges to climb a cliff near Staughton Vale, whilst others headed to Mt. Arapiles in Western Victoria to camp and climb for two days.

When climbing, students are in control of the level of challenge that they want to take on. They can choose their climbs and they choose how far they climb. This is an important learning experience, to give them the confidence to make their own decisions in risky situations and not simply follow the crowd or compete against their peers in risky situations. Climbing outdoors last week, we saw countless examples of students encouraging and supporting each other and showing personal courage and determination – all qualities that we are very proud to see in these young people.

On Friday, 26th May, a team of Year 7 to 9 students competed at the AFL Barwon Junior Girls Interschool Competition.

With the rising numbers of girls playing at local football clubs, this was the first year that we had several of our students playing regularly outside school. It was great to see the improvement in the standard of the games with this increase in participation.

All of the girls worked hard and contributed well, with eight different players scoring goals throughout the day. Matilda Puckett, Olivia Parrott, Rhiarn Shaw and Lucy Were played integral roles and congratulations to Poppy Schaap, who was named as the best player for our team for the day.

Year 11 Amelia Kearney

Meeting other nannies through my VET course and work placement has inspired me to live out my dream of being a nanny in Europe and all around the world. Each week I go to The Gordon on Wednesday afternoon to study Certificate III in Childcare. Having younger family members and always being around young children has given me a passion for working with children. At VET, I learn how to connect with the children, what to do if any of the children have an allergic reaction, how to play with them, and many other things. I have been able to apply what I have learnt at VET at my work placement each Friday - First Steps Childcare. I play with the children, organise group activities, snacks and lunch. I have found studying VCAL and VET is helping me work towards my career goals.

Year 12 Louis Martinez

My career of interest is Fitter and Turner. I have two shared work placements, Aikman Engineering and Austeng, that I go to on Fridays. On Wednesday afternoons, I go to The Gordon to study Certificate II Engineering/Mechanical, where I have learnt how to weld, use lathes, mills, and other such machinery. I have been able to apply what I have learnt at VET at my work placement by using new skills to machine components. I like being in the workplace, gaining experience and making a good reputation for myself. VCAL and VET are great if you want to go into a trade career.

During this process the SRCs were able to discuss with their homerooms how donating something so small can mean so much to someone else. This empathy is summed up by some of the SRCs:

Bethany Morrison of Year 5, “I felt sad for the Homeless people and I am so glad that we are able to give items to them.”

Fane Vaitohi of Year 5, “I’m happy we were given this opportunity to help the less fortunate.”

Max Daley of Year 6, “I was really happy to be able to help people less fortunate than us.”

Samuel Beaumont of Year 6, “I think it’s really important that society is well balanced as everybody deserves to have the same things as us. The fact that there are so many people out there who need help makes my heart feel sad.”

Gabriel Maroulis of Year 7, “It’s a good feeling to help someone in need.”

Today, these SRCs were able to handover more than 60 care packs created specifically for male and females to Lindsay Cameron from the Department of Health and Human Services and Peter Jacobson from Barwon Child, Youth and Family. Both Lindsay and Peter lead and implement the programs and services with the youth of Geelong. They were very grateful of the generous donation made by the students of Christian College and their families. And with the great number of young people who they assist on a regular basis, this donation is highly valued and greatly appreciated.

Last term we also ran a Project Care Day to raise funds for SIDS via the Rivers Gift organisation raising over $800. The small donation on these days contributes to a large amount being given and is greatly appreciated by the charities we support.

The recent terrorist attack in Manchester, England where children and young people were among the victims, has spread shockwaves across the globe. With media coverage reaching saturation levels, it’s difficult to shield children from these events. The task for parents is to reassure children, while trying to explain events that, for most of us, are inexplicable. While most parents quiet naturally don’t want to discuss terrorism with children, it’s not a topic that you should avoid, particularly if your children ask pertinent questions.
Here are some ideas that will help:

1. Discussions that are age-appropriate
The Australian Psychological Society recommends: “it’s best to shield pre-schoolers completely from frightening or traumatic world events". This means protecting young children from media coverage and being mindful of adult conversations around young children. However even young children overhear conversations and know something may be happening, so be prepared to discuss events in ways that they understand. Primary school-aged children have more exposure through the media and the schoolyard. However, children can easily misinterpret events so be prepared to clarify misconceptions and open the way for conversations. Older children are usually very aware of media coverage, and have an understanding of the ramifications, both personally and politically. Opening the way for more in-depth conversations, as well as processing any feelings that arise, is important for this age group.

2. Manage yourself first
Children of all ages take their cues about unusual events from their parents. Events such as terrorism may leave you feeling unsettled and outraged, but you need to think carefully about the emotions you communicate to children. First and foremost they need to feel safe, so it’s best to keep extreme emotions in check in front of children. Share how you feel with your children but make sure you are in control of your emotions. Air strong feelings of anger or disgust with trusted adults if you need to vent or explore your own reactions.

3. Find out what they know
Children often confuse time and place so they can easily think that an event that occurred on the other side world will directly impact on them. Young children, in particular, usually personalise situations. They may, for example, think that an older relative is in danger because he or she is a regular concert-goer.

4. Keep conversations simple
Let children steer the conversation with their questions and worries. Answer children’s questions matter-of-factly and simply while bringing issues down to their level, if necessary, by talking about why people get into fights, and pinpointing appropriate and inappropriate reactions. With older children and teens, you may be able to have discussions around politics and religion but do so without stereotyping, or providing narrow analyses of events.

5. Listen to their worries
Encourage your children to talk about their feelings as well as their thoughts about the events. If possible, help them give their feelings a name. Assist them to understand that it’s normal to feel scared, sad and angry when events like these occur. Some children may want to spend more time around you, which is a natural reaction to distressing events occur that are outside their control.


6. Monitor media exposure
Limit children’s exposure to television as constant viewing of images of tragedy and terror can reinforce that the world is a dangerous place. Be mindful that constant repetition can desensitise some children, impacting on their ability to feel empathy. If news is being seen, join children and young people to watch those media stories of terrorism so you can provide adult perspective and clarity to what they are seeing.


7. Help kids feel empowered
Keep reminding children and young people that their world is basically a safe place. Focus on simple ways that young children stay safe, such as wearing a seatbelt, using a helmet while riding a bike and strapping on safety gear when they skateboard. Older children may want to fundraise for a charity organisation so they learn that they can make a positive difference. You may also hold discussions with teenagers about current safety measures, such as airport security and possible increases in security at future entertainment and sporting events.


8. Remind kids that people are good
Perhaps the most insidious aspect about terrorism for those who are not directly affected by it is that it can lead to mistrust of others and a cynicism toward different religious or political groups. It’s easy to lose sight of the basic goodness in all of us. It maybe useful then to highlight stories of heroism and goodness that come out of terrorism attacks. With young children, make a list of all the people such as medics, police and fire personnel who keep us safe. With older children, share stories of heroism, community and helpers that always come surface after distressing events.


Conversations about disastrous events such as terrorism provide opportunities for parents to help children manage difficult emotions; and help them make sense of complex events while broadening their understanding of the world.

On Friday, 26th May, Christian College Bellarine Girls Football Team represented our College in the Geelong Independent School Sports Association Junior Girls Football competition.

The girls loved the experience and really got into the spirit of the day. It was great to see the girls come together across different age groups, to all strive for one goal and to have some fun while doing this.

Year 7 student, Alexandra Smith, was the standout performer across all games and was awarded 'Best Player' from Bellarine Campus. Well done Alex on a great performance.

Dear Year 9 Highton families,

I am writing to let you know of the involvement this year that I, in my role as Career Practitioner, will have with our Highton Year 9 students.

My time frame with Year 9 students will be:

Monday mornings - from Home Room through to and including Period 4 and   /    Tuesday afternoons - from lunch through to after-school appointments. 

We have just held Homeroom meetings, at which I introduced myself; highlighted a new ‘Careers’ Tile on our SEQTA Homepage and asked students to respond to a short questionnaire - asking students whether, at this point in time, they have a ‘clear thought’, ‘some thought’ or ‘no idea’ on future study and career ambitions. It is those students who felt that, at this stage, they have ‘no idea’ who will be the focus of my first appointments.

The Year 9 career conversations we have will work towards helping our students see and understand the choice of pathways that Year 10 offers, and the flow-on into Year 11 and 12. Assistance and discussion surrounding subject selection will work towards this.

My appointments will initially be during class time - in 30-minute timeslots - so that ideally each student can catch either the beginning or the end of their lesson.

Students have been advised that I will email them with our meeting details, and they are welcome to let me know of any assessment or reason why my allotted time may not be suitable. I have asked them to let me know this in a timely manner so that other arrangements can be made. Our meeting space is where the HOC and DHOC offices are located, and I will ask students to meet me in that area.

Year 9 has also been shown, and registered for, their own ‘Careers Action Plan’ as a part of the Careers Tile. In this space, there is a plethora of information relevant to careers/study/pathways. Please have a look through this, as it is a wonderful way that technology has been able to help us embrace the ever-changing future for our young people.  Over time, we will explore and utilise the resources available through this website.

The focus of ongoing Year 9 meetings will be on:

  • Helping students realise and articulate their skills, interests, aptitudes and personality type and align these with an area of occupation as a starting point.
  • Thinking about subject selection for Year 10 and into VCE years.
  • Introducing the different pathways offered at Senior School : VCE, VCE/VET and VCAL.
  • Looking at, and explaining, University and TAFE courses, prerequisites, subject bonuses and pathways.
  • Creating a Career Action Plan that is their own record of subject/career/further study thoughts over their years at Christian College.

My contact my email is: r.smith@ccg.vic.edu.au, should you wish to make an appointment for you and your child in addition to the time I will spend with them, or if you would like to be a part of this initial conversation. Please know that you are more than welcome.

It is exciting to be able to be a part of the ongoing ‘story’ that our young people will create over their years at Christian College.

I am privileged and do look forward to keeping in contact, and supporting you in preparing your child for their future.

My kind regards,

Robyn Smith
