Our Fantastic Festival!
This year’s Art, Technology and Design Festival was a spectacular success! Once again, we were proud to highlight hundreds of pieces of work from Christian College students ranging from Kindergarten through to Year 12, with all five campuses and two kindergartens represented.
The feedback from attendees, including parents and families, Christian College staff and students, and other visitors. Our students have so much creativity and love to express themselves in different ways through art, technology and design. Our dedicated ATD staff work brilliantly with them to harness and develop their skills all areas we offer.
The Festival Finale this year was a great event with hundreds of people gathering to take in the exhibition, hear from our inspiring guest speaker Bec Riddle, and attend the ‘Creators in the Spotlight’ sessions. It was wonderful to listen to our students talk about various aspects of their creative journeys in completing a whole range of different projects.
Many people worked so incredibly hard in many different ways to make the Festival such a memorable and successful event – from ATD staff, the College leadership to marketing, maintenance, special events personnel and many other professional support staff, and of course the hundreds of students who created the artworks on display, and those who worked behind the scenes – a big THANK YOU. Your efforts have brought profound joy and many happy memories to our Christian College community in 2023.
The Year 6 Buzz: Market Day Anticipation
A palpable sense of excitement and creativity fills the air as the Year 6 students eagerly prepare for their annual Market Day on Friday, November 24. These young entrepreneurs are immersing themselves in lessons on advertising, marketing, budgeting and profit and loss, as they learn the ropes of setting up and running their own small businesses.
On Market Day, the rear school grounds will be transformed, and the students will showcase their skills through a diverse array of student-created products and services.
With Market Day just around the corner, we encourage the Christian College Community to support these emerging business leaders and purchase the innovative products and services on offer, knowing that all profits generated on the day will be generously donated to a local charity. It’s not just a celebration of entrepreneurship; it’s a collective effort to make a positive impact within our community.
This term in Christian Education at year 7 we have been navigating what it looks like to make good decisions. From the moment we wake up in the morning until the time we close our eyes to go to sleep at night we are confronted with a significant number of choices to make.
Each day our young people are making thousands of decisions about all aspects of life. This unit aims to support students by providing them with knowledge of the decision-making process that everyone uses. It has been wonderful to explore different levels of decisions and how these decisions may change over time.
Students have been provided with moral problems to discuss and to apply to the decision-making process. This has sparked some healthy discussions and has been the foundation of thought…what do we do when we don’t have the answers or resources to help us decide on a difficult decision that we may face.
As a key part of the Christian Worldview, allowing God space and time to help us make good decisions is a concept that is quite new to many students. It is our hope and prayer that students integrate this throughout the rest of their lives. God is so invested and ready to help us through all the decisions in life and all we need to do is take the time and allow him to show us what his good and pleasing plan is for our daily lives.
Cross Campus Drum Night – Are you Rolling?
Did you know the longest continuous drum roll on record was played for 16 hours, 41 minutes and 50 seconds? A great goal for our budding drummers, maybe?
The joy of drumming was evident at the RW Gibson Centre on Tuesday night as over 20 drummers from all 5 campuses came together to share an amazing night of percussive excellence! With students from Years 1 to 11 it was a joy for the audience to witness a variety of genres, beats and catchy tunes. Impressive coordination and precision were exhibited by students and the positivity in sharing cross campus and with great comradery was a highlight of the evening.
Please enjoy some photos from this great annual event on the College Calendar.
