From the Principal
The end of year has arrived rapidly, and this is an indication of how busy and full the final weeks of Term 4 have been. It has been such a relief, yet a great encouragement, to complete the full year and to see the return of the full depth and breadth of our College program throughout 2022.
Celebration Evenings and Special Occasions
Over the past few weeks, I have had the joy to attend numerous official events and special occasions that highlighted the culture, excitement and impact that Christian College continued to have on our own community and beyond. Our college truly is remarkable for the commitment and care that is provided to our students, staff, and families, and these occasions when we gather highlight what a special family this community is.
Surf Coast Celebration Evening 2022
Our Surf Coast community enjoyed their very first Celebration Evening this week and it was such a wonderful time to share with our families and friends. During the evening we celebrated through song and dance all while sharing the message of God’s Wonderful Creation. We celebrated students through the giving of awards. A huge highlight was watching our Foundation Prep class graduate as they prepare to enter Year 5 next year as we begin the very first year of our Surf Coast Middle School. It was certainly time for cheering and celebration when Flynn House were the winners of this year’s House competition. Evenings such as this one a wonderful to spend together as a community.
Year 4 Inaugural Coastal Bike Ride
Last week our Year 4 students had an amazing day enjoying our first Coastal Bike Ride.
Students, staff and parent helpers met with excitement down at the Jan Juc SLSC. Final bike checks and adjustments were carried out and everyone geared up and mounted their bikes.
The peloton headed off through the sand dunes, across the boardwalk and up on to the Torquay back beach coastal bike path. Our first stop was at Elephant Park playground followed by morning tea down at ‘Fishos’. Back on our bikes again, we soon set off along the path down to the end of The Esplanade for a picnic lunch and kick of the footy in St Anne’s Reserve.
It’s CARNIVAL TIME
What a day the Surfcoast Campus students had on Tuesday for their annual Carnival Day. The sun was shining, everyone was smiling and there was definitely a feeling of fun and joy in the air.
The students spent the day taking part in a wide range of activities ranging from jumping castles and obstacle courses to holding frogs, owls and blue tongue lizards.
As we come to the end of another amazing year at the Surf Coast Campus it was beautiful to listen to the laughter around the whole school. It was a day filled with spending time with our school community and celebrating the relationships and friendships we have here.
The students got to hold snakes and crocodiles, ducks, baby goats and rabbits. They got to share in the simple pleasure of popcorn and fairy floss. While spending time with their friends and teachers celebrating being
This was another day that we were able to build the memories that our students will cherish forever.
Tabloid Sports Event
Last Friday in the beautiful sunshine, all SC students participated in our annual Tabloid Sports Event, with encouragement from the many spectating parents.
After some brief instructions, it was time to channel the excitement into activity.
Students dispersed into multi-age groups and headed off to the first of 10 activities, under the guidance of our teaching staff.
For the next 60 minutes, students kicked, dribbled, threw, caught, ran, climbed, dodged, balanced, jumped, bowled and socialised with peers in a display of colour, collaboration, friendship, laughter and most of all…fun!

A MYTERN Thought for This Week
If you find yourself driving down a road with no others cars, don't panic.
Your journey is different. Try not to be tempted to turn back on to a freeway full of cars...especially if it doesn't feel right. Enjoy the solitude and take comfort in the fact that you are steering towards your own, unique destination 👍😊
