Our Junior School students loved the opportunity to dress up as their favourite book characters today. Enjoy the photos below, and have a look at our Facebook page for some more photos of the day. Can you guess all the book characters in these photos?
Our next 30th anniversary event is The Northside Voice competition. This showcase of talent is the culmination of a thorough audition process. Our top singers are profiled as they compete to become “The Northside Voice” for 2014. This year, the final will feature 8 performances across two categories: Middle School and Senior School. It’s going to be an amazing night of entertainment!
Check out this short video for a sneak peek! The 16 semi-finalists in The Northside Voice sing their hearts out, but only 8 make it into the finals…
On Saturday 2 August, we celebrated our 30th anniversary with a special Gala Dinner. With well over 100 guests in attendance, the night was a truly memorable occasion and a wonderful opportunity to honour God’s blessing upon our College. We welcomed back past parents, past staff and past students and they were joined by current parents and staff, and other valued members of the wider Northside community.
Graham Corney and Pastor Murray Averill shared their reflections, while Mr Leighton Kuss spoke about the vision for the College in the future. Mr Kuss launched the plans for the new Centre for Innovation and Creativity, and more information about this facility will be unveiled in coming months. Sunkyoung Kim (Class of 2011) had the audience spellbound with her talent as she performed a classical violin piece, accompanied by Mr Maitlohn Drew. Guests were also entertained by current students Eliza King, Abby Smith and Sullivan Flynn. An auction was also held during the evening, raising $2,700 for the College.

Third Place in Youth District Exhibits
Congratulations to our team of Secondary students who created an outstanding exhibit for the 2014 Royal Queensland Show (Ekka).
The creative entry is based on theme of “People and Places”.
“It was created to be family-friendly and a lot of fun for viewers,” said Cameron Edwards (Year 10).
“We tried to include as many people and places as possible within our ‘country setting’. For example, we used wool and other grains to create a horse, which demonstrated creativity and innovation.”
The exhibit was awarded overall third place in Youth District Exhibits, second place for Effective Arrangement and second place for Most Points in Section One (design, planning and execution).
For those who are visiting the Ekka this year, you can view this wonderful exhibit at Agricultural Hall.
We wish to thank the producers who generously donated products for our display.
