We are well into Term 2 with the holidays concluding with ANZAC Day. A wonderful celebration where we pause to think of the values instilled into this country through the ANZAC spirit. ANZAC Day is not about glorifying war, it is about hearing the stories of determination, mate ship, grit, resilience, and self-discipline. Values that helped young men and women from all walks of life, get through one of the most challenging times in human history.
We can learn so much from the examples displayed in the many images shown on ANZAC Day. Fortunately, school is nowhere near as traumatic and life threatening as war, but we can take on these life lessons. Soldiers when presenting to parade are dressed immaculately, they march as one displaying great self-discipline and no matter where they are from, rich or poor, they unite. In poor conditions and exhausted, they show grit and determination to get the job done.
Despite the challenges that the modern world throughs us, I pray that we can live a life aligned with this year’s theme, live life with hope.
Thank you to the vast majority of students who present themselves immaculately every day wearing the College tie and blazer. I also thank those who are still waiting on orders from the uniform shop for their patience.
We have been notified by the security staff of issues, especially on Thursday afternoons, down at the Westfield’s Plaza. This is due to the large numbers of students that attend. We ask that students avoid the area unless they are meeting a parent/guardian.
Afternoon Pick Up
We have been notified by the EG Petrol station of a large number of our Parents/Carers are waiting in the petrol station to pick up their son’s in the afternoon. Not only does this make it difficult for customers to enter it is also unsafe as student’s run to their cars. Please refrain from parking/waiting in the petrol station.
