Welcome From the Head of Campus

Dear Parents and Guardians,

A very warm welcome back to Term 2. We hope you have all enjoyed a restful and enjoyable break and shared a blessed Easter together as a family. There has been a vibrant feel around the campus to start the term and it’s wonderful to see the joy our students have in reconnecting with their school community after a break. Our whole school assembly on Wednesday featured our Preps joining us for the first time this year, and they were warmly welcomed into our student community.

We were blessed to hear messages of encouragement in striving to be our best through faith and perseverance by our College Captains, Briella Egberts and Cameron Chandler. We very much appreciate their willingness to take time out of their busy Year 12 schedule to be a part of our community. 

In Principal's Mr Glen McKeeman’s address, he illuminated for the students the vision we have for them as graduates of Christian College. That is, our students will contribute to making a positive difference to human capital (others) through doing ‘good work’ that is excellent, ethical and engaged in local and global contexts. Mr McKeeman shared many examples of ‘good works’ to illustrate this vision to the students. We are seeing many examples of our students doing ‘good work’ in their learning programs - work that seeks to serve others. This is very exciting and we can have great hope that our young people can make positive change in our world.

Term 2 is shaping up to be another busy term, packed with many rich learning opportunities, excursions and camps. Reading the weekly 'Vine' (along with our online calendar of events) is the best way to keep up to date with everything throughout the term. I would particularly like to draw your attention to our 'Learning Conferences' on Tuesday, 9th May. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet your child’s teachers to discuss the learning progress of your young person thus far. Online booking information will be forwarded later next week. I look forward to touching base with you at the Learning Conferences.

Kind regards

Nicholas Watson
Head of Campus
