Message from our Head of Campus - Mr Tony Costa
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Our Semester 2 academic program is certainly in full swing, with students experiencing and enjoying many new and challenging learning opportunities, including new subjects and electives, excursions and Camps, all before the end of week 4! It has been wonderful to be able to celebrate some of these learning experiences with our community through the new look, “The Vine”. I have been overwhelmed with the positive attitude and enthusiasm shown by students as they return for the new semester and I have very much appreciated the continued smiles and encouragement from students right across the campus. It has been thoroughly pleasing to share many conversations, with students and families within my first month here at Middle School Highton.
To share a little about myself with you, alongside being a passionate educator, I am a proud husband and father, having earlier this year celebrated our ten year wedding anniversary with my beautiful wife. We are blessed to have four gorgeous children, all of whom have helped to continually shape my character and relational understanding of young people (on a daily basis!). Having taught a significant amount of Mathematics, Physical Education and Outdoor Education within the middle years, I have developed a genuine understanding of the adolescent learner and look forward to the challenge of leading, supporting and encouraging staff, students and families, as we navigate into the exciting changes of 21st Century 'Christian' Education at Christian College.
Mr Tony Costa
Head of Highton Campus
