Term 4 is well underway with each week bringing a wide range of learning experiences and school milestones. Here is some information on these that have recently occurred and some important up and coming events.
This week we celebrated the skill of reading with a Book Week Assembly on Tuesday. Books are a gift, they are insights into another world, way of doing things or a treasure trove of information gathered together by the author(s). Photos from Character Day will be on Pixevety soon.
Year 9 Adventurous Journey
Year 9 students head off to their overnight camps where the focus is on becoming a young man or woman of strength and character. While we all know this is an ongoing developmental process, to have the time to intentionally speak into this is valuable and important.
Eagle Awards Assembly – Tuesday 17 November
Students have been working hard to collect their points for the Bronze, Silver or Gold Eagle Award. These will be presented at a Middle School Assembly.
Presentation Service – Thursday 19 November 8:45am – 10:30am
Presentation Service was originally on the College Calendar for this week but will now be held during school time and attended by the students only. Parents will be provided with a link to access a recording of this special service.
Cyber Safety Parent Seminar – Thursday October 29 6:00pm – 7:30pm
Next week, Glasshouse Christian College is hosting a Cyber Safety Seminar from Susan McLean free of charge to parents. All parents will receive an email about this with a booking link. Once booked, an email confirmation will provide the Zoom link. I highly recommend this opportunity to hear up to date and quality information on this important topic. Year 7 and Year 8 students will have presentations also on this day. Book in here: www.trybooking.com/BMEMS
Day for Daniel – Friday 30 October
Further to this, our College will recognise the Day for Daniel on Friday 30 October. Students are encouraged to wear red clothing or a red accessory with their Friday sports uniform and to bring a gold coin to show their support. All money raised will go to the Morcombe Foundation. Please note, this is not a free dress day and hair dye is not permitted. If students do not have any red items at home then students should wear their school uniform.
