Welcoming our St Philip's Christian College Students in 2019

Posted 30th January 2019

It is with great excitement and anticipation for the year ahead that I welcome you to 2019! A year in which I am trusting all of our students will enjoy great friendships, success in their learning and a positive year of wellbeing. I trust that you all enjoyed your summer holiday and that Christmas was a special time for you and your family. Having had extended leave with my family at the end of 2019, it was a good reminder of just how important time with our children is and creating special memories and bonds that will last a life time.

I was extremely proud of our students in 2018 as I saw them ‘Activate’ a life to the full in so many areas of life and this year as a school we are looking forward to our theme of Soar. As a College we desire every member of our community to live a flourishing life and to soar on wings like eagles. Isaiah 40, tells us that when we are in close relationship with God then he is the one that will give us the strength to not only journey through life but indeed enjoy the journey.

Carl Sandburg says ‘there is an eagle in me that wants to soar and a hippopotamus that wants to wallow in the mud’. My hope for all of us this year is that we would make good choices regardless of how challenging they may be, to soar like an eagle. This year we look forward to seeing all of our young people choose to soar like an eagle in their life.

It is great to be back with you all and I would really like to thank and congratulate Marty Telfer on his excellent leadership, especially Term 4 2018, whilst I was away. A huge congratulations must also go to our graduating class of 2018 who achieved outstanding results and have been highly successful in gaining outstanding apprenticeships and entry into university. We wish them every success for their futures.

Looking forward to seeing you all again as school commences and enjoying another great year.
