Message from the Head of Campus
Welcome back to Term 4! How nice is it to have the sun shining again and some warm weather to enjoy as we journey through Spring, with the anticipation of Summer. We are looking forward to a very full and rewarding term with your children as we approach the end of 2017.
At our Campus assembly on Tuesday, Mr Glen McKeeman, our College Principal, brought a message of a little boy, who when faced with incredible adversity managed to find the positives - giving small gifts (e.g. plastic toys) to people passing by and in return he received smiles, hugs and often tears of joy from his recipients. Such a simple idea - but something that not only turned his life around, but also the lives of many others. Mr McKeeman’s encouragement to students was to change the way we think about negative situations, to consider simple things we can do to boost positivity and to find the good news in tough situations. Coupled with supportive messages from our Senior College Captains, Briella Egberts and Cameron Chandler, our community is very well positioned for a wonderful term ahead.
Please continue to check the College calendar for details and dates of events but also lock in some important dates for Term 4, especially our Annual Music Evening at Costa Hall on Thursday, 19th October and also our Art, Technology and Design Extravaganza from November 17th to 22nd. Both events are a celebration of the gifts and talents of our students across the Christian College campuses and should not be missed!
Students will be required to start wearing Summer Uniform for Term 4, with the official change-over date being Monday, 23rd October (start of Week 3). Students may wear either full Summer or full Winter uniform leading up to this date, however not a combination of the two.
A further reminder that students are required to wear their College hats for all outdoor activities throughout Term 4, including during Recess and Lunch breaks.
Geelong Show Day Holiday:
A reminder that Friday 20th October is Geelong Show Day. Middle School - Highton students are not required at school on this day. Please note that Christian College takes this day in place of the Melbourne or Geelong Cup holidays.
Mr Tony Costa
