Exploring Perseverance

Last month, our year 8 students participated in an exciting one night hiking trip in Anglesea. This camp runs each year, concentrating on the theme of perseverance. Our aim is for students to learn practical ways to develop reliance and support for each other. Each homeroom spent two days hiking through Bells Beach, Iron Bark Basin and Anglesea Heath. The weather was beautiful, providing a great atmosphere for students and staff. Despite the nerves, our students were well prepared and came with a great attitude as they took off on the morning of camp. It was quick stop at Bells before we began our 14km hike along the beautiful coastline. The hike provided many opportunities to explore nature, build friendships and talk about our theme on perseverance. There were students who soldiered on while others did a great job not giving up. Along the way, we witnessed examples of team work, with students supporting each other in times of need. One student offered to carry his friends bag to help him out for a while. Another student offered his spare shoes for a friend whose shoes were too wet to wear. Students cooked their own dinner and had the experience of sleeping in tents, which for some was their first time. The next day was a shorter 5km walk, before lunch and our bus trip home. As a year level, we were proud of the way students behaved, their perseverance and care for each other - great experiences with lasting memories.

Top Arts for VCE Students

On Wednesday the 24th of April, VCE Studio Arts students attended the “Top Arts” Season of Excellence event at NGV Federation Square (Melbourne CBD). This was a special time where students gained insight on how to succeed in Studio Arts.   Students listened to advice from past year 12 students who explained their journey and provided tips on how to produce high quality artwork. They explored successful Art folios and marvelled at the amazing artworks exhibited.   Students also enjoyed exploring the Street Art from Hosier Lane and lunch on Southbank.   We are already seeing some amazing works produced by this year's cohort and can't wait to see how this additional 'real-life learning' will help them bring their artworks to fruition. Recently students have been experimenting with acrylic pouring and have been inspired by artist Joshua Miels. We are looking forward to seeing what else they will produce throughout the year.   - Linda Karman, Secondary Art Teacher ...

It was wonderful to honour our servicemen, past and present, with so many key people from our community. Years 3 and 4 As part of the Year 3 & 4 ANZAC Day commemoration, we held our own service that included a hymn called ‘Abide with me’, a story called ‘A Day to Remember’, the Requiem and both the Australian and New Zealand national anthems. We related the service to the Bible passage from John 15:9-17. This spoke about how ‘there

Where on earth is Mrs Monnik this year?

I made the decision to come to Africa for a year because I knew that there was a desperate need. Psalm 12:5 But the Lord says, "Now I will arise! I will defend the poor, thise who are plundered, the oppressed, and the needy who groan for help". I grew up in Africa with my parents who were Australian. They went to share the good news about Jesus. I have always loved Africa and her people. In 2015 and 2017, I made short visits in the school holidays to help with an organization called Hands at Work. Hands at Work reach the most vulnerable children in Africa. This year, my husband and I decided to take a whole year to volunteer with Hands at Work. We spent the first 5 weeks in South Africa, visiting the poorest communities there. We were then sent to Malawi for a month to a service centre where 8 local Malawians care for 12 different care points and over 800 children. Malawi is very beautiful but desperately poor. For example, when floods destroy houses, not only are houses destroyed, but cerebral malaria can take over a human mind and destroy reason and purpose for living. My husband and I have seen these disaters in action. What a privilege to be able to pray and bring a helping hand to a single mother of five children who had been through the severe floods in March and contracted malaria during the disaster. Helping her receive the medical attention she needed was a blessing!

Working Class Man

Students from 6B recently enjoyed studying the story of Labour Day. They were so enthusiastic that they thought it would be good to design a play to communicate the story to the whole Primary School. A small group of students designed the script, another team designed the props, and yet another group looked after the technical side of the play. The story involved a group of stonemasons who were fed-up with working such long hours, and their families who were equally fed-up as well! A team of construction site bosses negotiated with the stonemasons to eventually (after a strike) come up with 888 – 8 hours work, 8 hours rest and 8 hours recreation. We added some songs – 'Working for the Man' by Roy Orbison and 'Working Class Man' by Jimmy Barnes, with one of our female singers rewriting a verse to reflect working class women as well. The play was summed up by celebrating what wonderful working conditions we experience in Australia – and that is something we could all be thankful for after Monday’s Labour Day public holiday. A connected Bible verse from the Old Testament was read to provide God’s perspective on work: 'There is nothing better for a person than that he should eat and drink and find enjoyment in his toil. This also, I saw, is from the hand of God.' Ecclesiastes 2:24 We thank God for our wonderful country and the great working conditions we experience. Congratulations to the Grade 6B students for bringing
