I also want to thank all of our families for the way you have partnered with us, and worked alongside us, during some wonderful, and perhaps not so wonderful, moments. You embraced schooling from home, you understood when you couldn’t come onto campus grounds due read more…

Pupil Free Week in July Given that this has been a huge year for students and staff at the College, I have made the decision to keep the Pupil Free Week during the July school holidays.  This will allow everyone a well-deserved break and provide time for staff to prepare well for Semester 2, with some professional development. Students will finish Term 2 on Friday 3 July and return to school on Monday 27 July 2020.

Principal’s Message ‘Be ready in season and out of season’ (2 Timothy 4:2) Paul’s word to Timothy here doesn’t refer to time, but to us. We are to be ready at all times, or,  as Oswald Chambers puts it , ‘we should “be ready” whether we feel like it or not’. In many ways, if you are like me, we have all felt anything but ready during this Covid-19 season. However, if we only relied on those moments when we were comfortable and prepared, we would be of little use to God.  Fortunately, our team of staff and leadership have worked together to ensure our read more…
