Head of Campus Message
Dear Middle School families,
It is with much excitement that I write my first weekly parent email as Head of Middle School Highton. I have enjoyed a smooth transition back ‘home’ to Middle School after spending nine and a half years serving the Bellarine community of Christian College. It is an honour and a privilege to be appointed to such an important position within the life of this Campus and I look forward to partnering with you, alongside our staff, as you parent your young person through their adolescent years.
The students have been wonderfully welcoming and friendly on their return to school this morning, although the highlight I must say was on entering our Commencement Assembly this morning, a strapping young Year 7 boy congratulated me on my position, wished me the best of luck, then proceeded to encourage me with ‘we’re expecting big things’!! It most certainly made me smile.
As I reflected on this ‘expectation’ throughout the day, I realised that I too am expecting ‘big things’ from our students as they continue their personal, educational and spiritual journey’s through the middle years. I am also reminded and encouraged that we can expect ‘big things’ from our heavenly Father when we turn our eyes, hearts and minds to His calling in our lives. A journey that I eagerly look forward to sharing with your child during their time here at Middle School.
