Boy-Girl Friendships

Even if dating is years off, it's never too early to teach our children how to communicate and interact with members of the opposite sex in a healthy manner.
One way to encourage healthy interactions is to provide opportunities for our children to develop friendships with members of the opposite sex.As parents we can help our kids cultivate healthy attitudes by paying close attention to how we talk about relationships with the opposite sex.

Boy-girl relationships should neither be put on an altar nor talked about negatively. Sheila Wray Gregoire, Christian author and parenting expert, says that negative talk about dating and sex can lead kids to decide “boys are yucky” or “girls are scary,” causing them to end up with a negative perception of members of the opposite sex. Instead, as parents we should try to maintain a positive attitude as we help our kids find ways to experience healthy platonic relationships.

It has often been said that children learn what they live. Modeling love and respect within our families is where healthy relationships — including those with the opposite sex — start. Show affection to your spouse and your kids, and don’t stop being affectionate with your children as they age. Hug them, wrestle with them, lean against each other while you watch a movie.Kids who aren't receiving healthy physical affection from family members may be more likely to seek out physical attention elsewhere.

These are just a couple of hints that i hope will help us all in encouraging our children to grow up into well balanced and healthy adults.

If you feel the need to talk to somebody about a personal issue or concern then please contact myself at the Bellarine Campus and i will consider it a privilege to spend some time with you.

Chaplain, Christian College Bellarine Campus

Orientation Day this week was an exciting time for students and staff at Junior School to celebrate the many possibilities that a new class and a new year ahead brings. Students from Years One to Four assembled in their homerooms and spent the day in their new 2017 class. Students enjoyed time getting to know their teacher and classmates and participated in learning experiences that aimed to encourage a positive mindset for the coming year. We also welcomed our new students across these year levels and our 2017 Preps. Our 2017 Prep students spent the morning with their teachers and enjoyed special time with their Year Four buddies. It was lovely to hear a year four student describe her joy at having had the opportunity to be a buddy on Orientation Day.

We celebrated a very successful Orientation day on Tuesday, welcoming many new students and families into our College community! There was plenty of anticipation and excitement towards the new opportunities, challenges and friendships that lie ahead for 2017. It was pleasing to see and hear of many instances where our students were welcoming and encouraging of their new (and in some cases extremely nervous) peers. It is a wonderful privilege to witness firsthand the friendship, acceptance, empathy and emotional intelligence our young people show on days such as these.

On days such as Orientation Day we are reminded of the need to have a “big picture view” about developing resilience and independence in our young people.  I trust the attached article ‘Resiliency Robbers’ is helpful in supporting and sharing suggestions as to how this might be achieved.

Our Middle School Highton Pop up Cafe' was a huge success yesterday!! We were blessed with a beautiful day, great entertainment and delicious food - all prepared, created and sold by our Year 9 students!

Well done also to our Year 8 students who helped with the soft furnishings and graphics used on the day. Great job team!!

 

Genuine learning experiences such as this are so valuable for our students, providing an opportunity for a real audience, an end product, whilst adding to the ‘community’ connectedness amongst our students and staff. Well done to all students involved!

 

Throughout this term, students of Year 9 Food Technology, Year 9 Product Design, Year 9 Music, Year 8 Visual Communication Design and Year 8 Textiles classes have been working to come up with ideas for a healthy food van, from which Year 9 students of Middle School are able to purchase different food options.   

The year 9 Food technology students designed and produced Healthy ‘Snack’ options for sale,  with snack menu items costing between $2 to $5. The food technology students have undertaken a study in the design of healthy eating options, food preparation and what is required to prepare for a café type environment.  

 Assisting the Food technology students, other elective classes from across the campus have also been working behind the scenes to bring this Pop up Café together.  

The Year 9 Product design students produced the seating. 

The Year 8 Textiles students produced the soft furnishings and buntings for the display. 

Our Year 8 VCD students produced the Marketing, Packaging and layout design components.

 And on the day our Year 9 Music students provided some wonderful entertainment!!

The annual Year 10 Social had the theme of “Heroes and Villains” and it was a tremendous evening. The Pier again hosted us, and our Director of English, Mr Damian Stephenson, provided the music via his DJ skills. The music was loud and got everyone dancing. There were many colourful outfits and prizes were given for the best costumes. There was Snoop Dog, six versions of Richie Benaud as well as superheros and villains of every type. The one that I felt was clever was Hilary Clinton and a Donald Trump complete with voting signs. It is up to you to say if they were heroes or villains!

I wish to thank sincerely Ms Celeste Pryke and Mr Paul Breguet for their organisation. The students danced away until 10.30pm and left having spent a great time with their friends.

It is important to mention that Ms Celeste Pryke is stepping down as our Year 10 Co-ordinator. She has spent several years as a hard working co-coordinator who served all her students well. The care and attention Celeste gives is a model for us all.

Ms Kim Doherty will be taking over this role and is very keen to support the students in the way they always have been.

We celebrated a very successful Orientation day on Tuesday, welcoming the Junior School Year 4 students and families into our Middle School Highton community! There was plenty of anticipation and excitement towards the new experiences, challenges and friendships that lie ahead for 2017... students and parents alike!  

I encouraged the students to consider their 'Opportunities' and their 'Perspective' as they embark on the next stage of their educational journey. The next 5 years will prove to be a significant time of growth; physically, emotionally, socially, academically and spiritually as they journey through adolescence. Taking hold of opportunities and being aware and challenged in their perspectives, will assist our students to develop to their full, God inspired potential. 

It was pleasing to see and hear of many instances where our Christian College Junior School students were welcoming and encouraging of their new (and in some cases extremely nervous) peers. It is a wonderful privilege to witness firsthand the friendship, acceptance, empathy and emotional intelligence our young people show on days such as these.

You should feel proud of your young person, as I know the Junior School staff are, of the wonderful young boys and girls they have blossomed into. We are excited to be welcoming this beautiful group of children into the Middle School in 2017 and look forward to sharing the journey with you in the coming years.

 

Kindest regards,

Mr. Tony Costa

The Senior School hosted the current Year 9 students who will be our Year 10 cohort next year. It was a great day and was well organised by the 2017 Year 10 Co-ordinators in Ms Kim Doherty and Mr Paul Breguet.

We commenced with a meeting in the Chapel and then the students went into a range of activities in their Houses. These activities formed a House competition and marks the start of the 2017 year - Burrows came out on top and shall take that lead into next year. 

    

The students enjoyed their morning snack (donuts) and lunch (BBQ). I wish to thank the staff who gave freely of their time to organise and host a variety of games and activities that all enjoyed.

We are confident that all students left feeling more comfortable about their entry into Senior School.

They have their transition program to come and this will further enable all students to meet new people and become more familiar with our campus. More information about Year 10 2017 Transition program will be provided soon.

The Year 2 students at Junior School look forward to Term 4 as our topic for study is Japanese food. We are very fortunate at CCG to have a number of Japanese parents and assistants who are also excellent sushi chefs. Led by Masaki Tanis, they taught the Year 2 students all about sushi, how to make it and how best to eat it. Most of the students had tasted sushi before but had never made it. They were surprised at how delicious their own sushi was and really enjoyed the ‘hands on’ approach to learning.

Whilst half the class made sushi, the other half had a taste test of a variety of green tea (Ocha) and seaweed flavoured (Nori) food. This included ice cream, tea, powder and biscuits. Some were reluctant at first but were very brave and tried the new and unusual delicacies! Most children discovered that they did like the new and interesting flavours but wasabi proved to be a bit too spicy for some.

Food is a great way to introduce new cultures to children so I would encourage all CCG families to have a try at making sushi at home or going to a Japanese restaurant with their children.

Chaney Sensei.



The children wrote about their experiences with Japanese foods and these are a few writing samples:

  • “Ocha tea was planty and disgusting!” Eliza
  • “Macha (green tea powder) was bitter, unexpected and strong.” William
  • “I loved to roll the sushi.” Mikayla
  • “I was really excited to eat the sushi. Also it was difficult to make and I had to have help three times!” Tex
  • “Making sushi was a little bit hard but we had helpers.” Rani
  • “Ocha ice cream is sweet but I don’t like it.” Cameron A
  • “I think I made a good choice with my tuna and lettuce.” Sharnyse
  • “I made the best sushi. I ate both of them straight away.” Jordan
  • “Nori sakata were crunchy and sticky.” Tadhg
  • “Sushi making was fun because it was difficult.” Billi

I have heard it said that 'you do the job before you get the title'. We are blessed to have so many students who lead others amongst our college community through how they conduct themselves, that chosing the leaders who are recognised with the title of prefect and house leadership again has proven to be difficult and requiring a rigerous and thorough process.

Over the last 3 weeks the formal process of 2017 leadership selection has taken place for our current year 8 students. It has been an absolute pleasure to witness such a large group of students with a desire to serve their college community in this way. To begin the process students presented a short speech to the year 7 students and their year 8 peers, outlining their desire for leadership, what they believe good leadership to be and why they would be suitable candidates for the roles.

It was so encouraging to hear the leaders of tomorrow articulate such a clear understanding of what leadership should look like. Students listening submitted votes based on what was presented to them. Year 8 students then participated in their camp at the Skeltons camp site where tribe team work was paramount. This provided a great environment where the prospective leaders could display what they presented in their speeches in practice. All staff on camp observed whether these opportunities were taken and by whom, then reported on students at the end of camp.

Short interviews were then conducted with shortlisted applicants, following the camp. This knowledge of students, including the information gleaned from the recent leadership process, has contributed towards making the decisions around leadership recognition.

We are confident that the student leadership group chosen, will continue to build upon our current leadership group's work, in 2017. To those students who will inevitably be disapointed to have missed out on these roles, we look forward to you developing in leadership, as you practice living out the values you presented to us throughout this process.

Thank you to all of the leadership applicants for your desire to serve your Christian College Community.

Deputy Head

Last week the Year 8s enjoyed an action packed ‘Survivor’ camp, rising to many challenges and taking themselves out of their comfort zones.

We began with an Orientation to the Farm Campus, gaining a small insight into what life will be like for the students next year during their Rural studies. Students enjoyed meeting Farm staff and getting to sample some typical Farm activities.  Leaving the Farm behind, we moved over to the paddock we would call home for the next few days. Soon students were busy working together in their tribes, building their shelters and making a camp fire, in order to start cooking their evening meal. Many tribes took a while to cook their baked potatoes, yet success was shared by all once the meal was cooked and each tribe enjoyed a time of fellowship.

The tribe became an important aspect of the camp, with a clear need for students to work together to ensure the tribe functioned in the best possible way. Tribes battled through many initiatives, culminating in the Amazing Race on the last day.

A particular highlight was the barn dance, in which Cowboy Kev took us through a whirlwind of dances and music, with all students revelling in the spirit of the night.  A great camp was experienced by all, with all of our Year 8s showing growth in character.

The Christian College Bellarine community came together today, Friday 4th November, to support and raise funds for the very worthy cause, Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in Australia. In 2012, 15,050 women and 116 men were diagnosed with breast cancer. Unfortunately, it seems to have touched everyone’s life in one form or another, either directly or through the experience of family and friends. The money we have raised will help the Cancer Council fight cancer through prevention programs, support services and world-class research.

The college looked a sea of pink as both students and teachers arrived donning pink wigs, pink tutus, pink hair dye and so much more. It was a day of activities and fun including basketball shootouts and the infamous ‘Teacher Vs Student’ basketball match that was played in front of a crowd of spectators filling the stadium.

Thank you to our Project Care Representatives, student body and college families for your support and generosity on this special day. It is overwhelming to see the servant hearts and willingness of everyone to give and play a part in making this world a better place.

HOW TO ACCESS YOUR YEAR 12 RESULTS
 

HOW TO ACCESS YOUR YEAR 12 RESULTS

There are 4 ways students can access their results from 7am on December 12 2016:

  1. To view your results online, log onto www.resultsandatar.vic.edu.au (note this site is only available from 7am December 12 2016) using your VCE student number and results service PIN. The default PIN is the first 4 digits of your birthdate, however you are strongly encouraged to change this prior to the release of results.

  2. To get your results by SMS on the morning they are released, register by sending your VCE student number (without the letter) and PIN ie - student number (eight digits only, not the letter) space PIN (4 digits) - to 19 787 888 ($1.10 incl GST). Registration is open from Monday November 7 until midnight Sunday December 11. Requests sent after this may be delayed. Ensure your mobile is registered to receive and send premium text messages

    Salmat – SMS cost $1.10 max (incl. GST). Obtain bill payer’s permission before using this service. Call 1800 501 083 for help with registration.

    SMS results are reported by using the first two alpha characters and numbers of the study. For example, Further Mathematics is represented by MA07, Mathematical Methods by MA11 and Specialist Mathematics by MA09.

    Students should be aware that scored VCE VET studies (such as VCE VET Business and VCE VET Hospitality) only have two graded assessments – one school-based and one exam.

    To find out more about VCE examination results, a statement of marks can be obtained. Further information is available on the VCAA website: www.vcaa.vic.edu.au  

  3. All current VCE students will receive a statement of VCE study scores from the VCAA. However, only students who have applied for courses through VTAC this year and have paid their VTAC processing fees will be sent an ATAR statement in the mail. Students who have not applied for courses can request an ATAR statement from the VTAC website: www.vtac.vic.edu.au Administrative costs apply.

    VCE and VCAL certificates are distributed by schools and colleges, rather than mailed with the results.

  4. A new option for Year 12 students to receive their ATAR and scaled study scores this year: via the VTAC CourseSearch app. An update to the app will allow students to enter their VTAC ID and PIN to access their 2016 ATAR and contributing scaled scores. This service will be available free of charge to all users of the app who have a VTAC account. Students who don’t already have the app can download it from Google Play or the Apple App Store for $1.49 (inc. GST). The updated version will be released in November, with existing users able to update free of charge.

Current Victorian Year 12 students are now able to change their Results Service PIN through the link on the home page of their VTAC account:

 

The Results Service PIN (along with the VCE student number) is needed to access VCE Results and the ATAR through the web or SMS services. By default, the Results Service PIN is the first four digits of the student’s birth date (e.g. 0302 for 3 February). We encourage Year 12 students to secure their results by changing the Results Service PIN to four digits of their choice prior to the release of results on Monday 12 December.

Continuing our celebration of the Bellarine Campus 20th Anniversary, it was wonderful to have some spring sunshine to plant a White Cedar tree at the front of the Campus. The planting of this tree by the foundation Head of Campus and College Principal Mr Glen McKeeman, Mr Scott Elliss, the 2nd Head of the Bellarine Campus and College Vice Principal, Year 8 students Noah Cunningham, Jessie Allen and Prep students Archie Underwood and Ellie Preibbenow, commemorates God’s provision and favour on the Bellarine Campus over the past 20 years.

Just as the much loved and cherished grand Peppercorn Tree has featured throughout celebrations of our first 20 years, and watched over many children, staff and families of our remarkable community, the White Cedar will also grow and flourish into a fine mature tree.  This tree will continue to serve as a symbol of hope that it is God’s will the Bellarine Campus community will flourish according to His purpose, for many years to come.

Modelled on the successful and innovative programs at ‘Williams House’ Kindergarten, Christian College is excited to announce that the same opportunities will be accessible to Armstrong Creek and Surf Coast families in 2017.  ‘Butterfield House’ is preparing to open its doors for local pre-schoolers and families of this region in 2017, providing for both general community access, and for children transitioning to the Christian College Surf Coast Campus in 2018 and beyond.

Further, in supporting our families in accommodating continuity of care and a calmer, quality, Early Childhood experience, Butterfield House is delighted to announce that we offer day care, both full-time and part-time options,  alongside our preschool programs from 2017.

Prekinder | Preschool | Day Care

The core of our approach to early learning is this:

- valuing personal connections,

- valuing wonder and

- valuing personal discovery.

All of these aspects are approached through a context of community and play, beautiful and thoughtfully presented environments, and generous access to outdoor spaces, including a bush kinder model.

Extensive plans are being activated to create a centre that includes the appointment of highly qualified and experienced staff. Also, the highest standards of physical spaces, such as easy ‘indoor/outdoor’ access, ample natural light, a heavy emphasis on the use of natural materials, and, the development of impressive gardens and outdoor discovery areas.

Help us spread the word to friends and family who may be interested in enrolling!

Gardening can be done by all and in all sorts of different places! To explore and investigate how large scale gardening operates, the students studying the How Does Your Garden Grow? elective headed off to Raven’s Creek Farm Café to find out more.

During a guided tour by farmer and past Christian College student Hayden Finlay, the students were able to learn about the unique and sustainable ways in which their animals including chickens, pigs and bees were managed. They were also able to discover how their plants and vegetables were grown organically.

Along with the wealth of knowledge gained, the students were challenged to ‘question and wonder’ about consumer choices when it comes to purchasing from a ‘farm gate’ as opposed to a supermarket.
