Year 10 Carnarvon Mission Trip

Year 10 students and accompanying staff have had a wonderful time up in Carnarvon this week.

They have been busy doing activities with Carnarvon Christian School students, and also found some time to go sightseeing to the Blow Holes, had a visit to the Carnarvon Space Museum and a Banana Plantation. They also did acts of service in the Carnarvon community, with gardening, yard clean ups etc, and also attended Church on Sunday.

Thanks to the wonderful Mrs Jo Lindsay who led the team of staff: Joshua Gibson, Lindsay Graieg, Ronel Neveling, Sue Dyson, Lizette Labuschagne, Keith Roffman and Mrs Shirley Sonneman who went along as Chief Cook for a big group of people (50 in total)!

What a blessing that our students learn what it is to serve others – ‘Learning God’s Way’.

We hope that you are busy getting lots of sponsors for the Primary Bikeathon coming up on Saturday 19 September?? Remember there is an online link you can share with family/friends if it’s easier to get fundraising money electronically: https://www.trybooking.com/BKYOX (remind them to put your child/ren’s name/s in so we know who the fundraising is for).

Ticket sales for dinner at the Mountain Bike Track Opening (also on 19 September) close at 7.00pm on Sunday 6 September. Please don’t forget to log on and order by the due date so we know how many to cater for (the TryBooking link has been emailed to families).

With the reduced season this year due to Covid-19, Strath Lions have had to play some mid-week games. Hats off to the U/14 Team who played last night, showing excellent sportsmanship. They won their game 11-0. Parents/Family were all rugged up to support the team who played under lights at Eadon Clarke Oval.

Congrats to Luke Harris who was MVP, scoring 5 goals.

U/12s vs Chapman Black, 23/8

Coach, Mr Boonzaier said “The entire team can be commended for the sportsmanship and grit shown on Sunday. I am very proud of how they displayed Christ-like character and never backed down, regardless of circumstances.” The team lost their game 3-2.
