Thanks to parents and students for the efforts undertaken in last week’s Student Led Conferences. Now it is a matter of putting plans and ideas into practice so they become a reality. We do encourage you to continue to communicate to us if your child is struggling or you have any concerns or queries so that together we can support our students and as we encourage our young men and women to ‘run with perseverance the race marked out for us.’ Hebrews 12:1 – 3.
This is a good time to remind you that our College offers Homework Help for our middle and senior students on Thursday afternoons from 3.00-4.00pm in the Library. Teachers volunteer their time to be available to assist students with their work and this is an excellent opportunity for students who may need a little more help.
I have noticed there are some students without covers on their laptops. These can be purchased from the uniform shop for $15.00, or families can purchase their own from another source. It is not uncommon for a laptop to slip accidentally and drop. A cover is a little more ‘insurance’ to prevent unnecessary breakages. It is also a requirement of the laptop agreement that it has a cover.
This term coming up there are a few small fundraisers for Fiji; for the families and Bible college that our school mission trip students will be visiting. As well, there will be a ‘Make a Stand’ Destiny Rescue fundraiser – Crazy Shoe Day on Thursday 3 September. Students who have signed up may be asking for donations or sponsorship as they choose to stand on this day (rather than sitting to do their usual work). As well, a sausage sizzle to send support to a place for homeless people in the Noosa area has occurred this week.
