Community Engagement Survey
PTA is delighted that the Twilight Festival was voted as the No. 1 thing that families and students wish the school would continue with. Thank you to all those who help make this event happen including clubs, codes, staff and friends of the PTA. We’re certainly planning to continue with the Twilight Festival in 2019.
Kindness Video Competition – Prizes – Three $500 Prezzy Cards!
To launch a kindness campaign in the school we are providing students with the opportunity to produce a video with a kindness theme.
“As I have shared with students, staff and wider community, kindness is one of my four non-negotiables. Kindness is central to our faith, the Bible preaches kindness in the Old and New Testaments. In Galatians, kindness is listed as one of the fruits of the Spirit. These are the nine attributes of a person or community living in accord with the Holy Spirit. Kindness is powerful and there are many ways we can practice it to the benefit of our entire college community”.
This video competition provides our students the opportunity to launch an increased focus on kindness in our college, to convey kindness creatively, to tell a story of kindness or to show insights about kindness, however they wish to express it. Students can get together with their friends and have fun creating a kindness video. Individuals are also welcome to enter:
Three Categories – Yr. 7/8, Yr. 9/10 and Senior (Years 11 – 13)
Prizes – $500 Prezzy Card for the winning video in each category
Dates – Entries due by the end of Week 8 – Friday 22nd June at 5pm. Send entries to firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a USB at the at the school office. Winners will be announced by the end of Term 2. Include name, year group and contact details of all video production team members.
Time Limit – 2-3 Minutes
