Senior School News - Week 2, Term 4 2019
This year I had the immense pleasure of travelling with Year 10 and 11 on the Senior School Vanuatu mission trip. It is the first time that we have had combined year groups. The two year groups worked beautifully immersing themselves in Vanuatu culture and working hard to serve the Lifechanger Christian school and a school on the remote island of Emau. Students taught lessons to younger students, helping them with the new readers that we had donated. We also repainted the main school buildings on Emau and together with Pastor Brill conducted a cricket clinic. Once again, our students were a credit to themselves, their families and their school. They embraced every challenge, worked hard without complaining and displayed a beautiful servant heart.
It was on the Vanuatu trip that the new school captain Emily Hickey suggested this term’s theme compassion. Our Bible verse is James 1:27, “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress.” To see compassion come to life we are partnering with All Saints Anglican Church with their “Just One Thing” project. We are asking Senior School students to bring just one thing to chapel on a Friday. The one thing could be a packet of pasta, a block of chocolate or a tube of toothpaste. We will then pass the items on to All Saints who will package them up and distribute them to the needy. The initiator of this project is Molly Torr another one of the new student leaders who is a member of the All Saints congregation.
It is with great pleasure that I announce the 2019/2020 student leadership team. This year’s leadership team is a thoughtful team who are eager to make positive change in our school community and act as role models upholding the core values of the school.
