Head of Junior School

This week in assembly we will be celebrating a number of achievements from the term. Athletics age champions, the winner of the Heininger Literary Award, Gold Award recipients and the ICAS Science competition Credit and Distinction certificates will all be awarded. Our Student leaders are running assembly and our College Principal will be speaking to the students.

These moments are just a taste of the learning, achievements and challenges we have faced in the Junior School during Term Three. In chapel our story has been about Joseph, found in the book of Genesis. Joseph found himself many times on the receiving end of bad deals and trouble, but it was not random. All the way through his life there was a clear theme, summed up best in his own words to his brothers “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. So then, don’t be afraid.” I would suggest the same could be for any of us – that there is a purpose even in the toughest of times if we see God’s purpose for good in our lives.

I look forward to seeing students return on Monday 12 October in summer uniform, ready to grow their knowledge, skills and attitudes to learning and life. I trust the two week break is a valuable time for you and your family.
