Congratulations to our Year 3-7 Athletics team who performed well at the Inter-Lutheran Primary Athletics Carnival this week and were declared the winners at the end of the competition. It was a very good team effort that included a number of outstanding individual performances. We thank Mr Darren Hooper and Mrs Natalie Campbell for their leadership.
Our senior students enjoyed the opportunity to compete in the Fisher Schools Debating Competition earlier this week. Both teams performed well, with one of our senior teams reaching the grand finals. Michael Hewitt was awarded the most persuasive speech and Reuben Taverner the future parliamentarian award. All team members were congratulated by Federal member, Mr Andrew Wallace on their performance. We thank Mr Alex O’Connor for his leadership and the nurturing of a growing culture of debating in the College.
This week we have welcomed Miss Nadine Richardson who is teaching Year 3. Miss Richardson has had extensive experience in Lutheran schools and has a passion for supporting the learning of young people in developing countries. We also welcomed Ms Kirsty Roy on Wednesday morning as a Senior English and Humanities teacher. Ms Roy has taught at Knox Grammar in Sydney and at St Josephs, Moreton Bay Boys and Somerville House in Brisbane. Ms Roy has a passion for literature and has held the role of Assistant Head of English. We welcome both these staff to the College and wish them every blessing as they support the learning of the young people in their care.
May God enable us to grow in wisdom.
Dr Bronwyn Dolling, Principal
