Across our school community I am always amazed at the dynamic multitude of opportunities that our students are provided - classroom activities, camps, excursions, incursions, innovation days, faith conferences, spiritual retreats, and the broad range of sport and arts events.

Behind these scenes, which are the moments that assist with character development, personal growth, spiritual formation, academic progress and life experience, are our dedicated staff...

In the coming weeks we have a dedicated ‘Self-Care September’ program for our staff. I would like to invite you to join in this encouragement for our staff by taking a moment to thank and encourage each of them.

Perhaps you could write an email, drop in a coffee voucher, send a note, or be creative as a family to show your appreciation to our staff who commit to your children each day.

Behind the scenes we have three dedicated advisory groups who provide invaluable guidance across the College. Our Property Committee includes parents, alumni and staff who are working hard to implement our Master Plan. I am thrilled to let you know that we have now received Ministerial Infrastructure Designation approval for our Master Plan. The tender process for the Parklands process is now underway and our architects are finalising the detailed plans for the next stages of the Centre for Innovation and Creativity in the Senior School precinct. I invite you to join us in praying over the finances for these projects as we monitor the construction industry cost escalations.

Behind the scenes we also have an Audit and Risk advisory group and a Community Life group. Mrs. Kelly Barnes chairs the Community group and has kindly provided an update below.

Behind the scenes we also are keen to keep improving as a College Community and your feedback is valued. You can always provide feedback via the College Feedback page on the website or by touching base with our staff.
