British comedian and actor, Stephen Fry, an avowed atheist, made headlines a couple of weeks ago when asked in an interview what he would do if he found himself at the “pearly gates”, meeting God after his death:

  • ‘In the same town were two men, one rich, the other poor. The rich man had flocks and herds in great abundance: the poor man had nothing but a lamb, only a single little one which he had bought. 

  • The College has arranged accident insurance coverage for all students enrolled at the College for the 2015 academic year.

     

  • The assistant archivists Iggy and his little sister Frances, will take a closer look at items that are held by the College Archives, helping us understand our extensive and rich history.

  • There is a great sense of expectation around the campus, a feeling of ‘great things will happen this year’, after such an enthusiastic start by our students last week.  

  • We have now welcomed our youngest students during this past fortnight with the commencement of the Kindergarten Program.

  •  The transition into the new school year has been pretty straightforward with very few issues. 

  • Our Year 4 students, under the guidance of our Early Years Religious Education Co-ordinator Virginia Vargas, led the whole campus from 3 Year old Kindergarten to Year 8 in a Reflection Prayer Service to celebrate National Apology Day.

  • Our students have a number of opportunities to experience leadership and we wish them well in their endeavours throughout the year, under the guidance of various members of the Leadership Team throughout 2015.

  • All early year students have made a very settled and enthusiastic start to the year, delighting in their new year level, meeting their new teachers and returning to the routines of a school day.
