From the Head of Campus
On Wednesday of this week, students had their individual portraits and House Group photos taken in the Library. At the end of the day, having managed around 600 students coming through their makeshift studio on high rotation, the team at Arthur Reed Photos remarked how incredibly polite, respectful, cooperative and positive our students were. Last week I had shared how the activities and events we’ve been able to enjoy this year have helped our Senior School community to thrive. But, as we know, community is more than just what we create, and when; it’s who, and how. It’s why I am so encouraged to receive that feedback, that our students, your young persons, the “who”, have left such an indelible mark on others.

2021 graduate Jack Frencham to encourage Yr9 students for Japanese study
On Wednesday morning, Valent Sensei and Brewster Sensei’s Highton Year 9 Japanese classes joined a video call with 2021 Christian College graduate Jack Frencham. Jack is currently in Japan at Naga High School taking part in our assistant program. He arrived on July 1st and will be there until Christmas this year. Even though it’s really hot, Jack is doing a wonderful job to support English teachers as a language assistant at Naga High school.

East Timor Trivia Night
National Collection of Data on Students With Disabilities
Every year, all schools in Australia participate in the Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability (NCCD). With data collected on the first Friday in August (this year, on the 5th), the NCCD process requires schools to identify information already available in the school about supports provided to students with disability. These relate to legislative requirements under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 and the Disability Standards for Education 2005, in line with the NCCD Guidelines (2021).
Please see the attached NCCD Fact Sheet for more information.
